I apologize for any offensive poetry, haikus’ random thoughts, epigrams or comments. I am skilled at reading between the lines, I do it every day with clients I work with. Often times I speak without thinking, it gets me in trouble a lot but believe me I mean no harm. I promise, I’m soft as butter.
I am learning that it is not good to speak so abrasively with people I don’t know (bloggers.) Writers will never admit it but we are sensitive about what we write and I must, must, must be mindful about that because causing harm can come in many forms.
On the flip side, tough skin is important in the world of blogging and you must be open to almost anything. I do try to be respectful as possible without restraining my writing, something I have very little control over. I am sorry about your sensitivity but I cannot apologize for what I write.
Comments are within my control, I can taper those, but my writing has its own personalities. I am skilled at reading between the lines, life experience, some of the best training and education have almost made me an expert at it. I know what it is people don’t say or indirectly say, or say even when they don’t say it. I get paid to read people. I have studied some of the bloggers I follow unconsciously but studying people is what I do. I do it even when I don’t realize I’m doing it. Some personalities stronger than others on WordPress and it has been a great journey and very educational. I am in love with social interaction from a blogger’s perspective.
Just as an aside, your habit of writing in all caps is often taken as “shouting” in the on-line world. Often something that is meant as a personal opinion may be taken more strongly than intended when it is published in all caps.
Not to denigrate your style, just something to consider.
Thank you, thank you my friend, I will take a look at that and redirect myself. I appreciate the feed back Mr. Burnett Nothing can be grafted on a closed mind so I am open.
There is not need to apologize for who you are at this moment in time. Those who are also growing and learning from practice and experience understand. Just do as it is you know in your heart and soul you must do. If you offend me, it is my ego you offend, not the real me who embraces and tolerates. That part of my self will eventually understand why it is you wrote or did as you did. Continue and I leave you with one of my favorite quotes by Dr. Seuss:
Be who you are and say what you mean because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. [Dr. Seuss]
Love, love, love Dr. Seuss (: and thx, your comment rocked!
😀 – very welcomed!
Just be yourself my friend. Better to be liked for you who are, than loved for who you are not.
Some people, yes, do see all caps as “yelling”, but if that’s your style, stay with it. It all depends on what audience you want and the size of the audience you wish to speak to. You may lose out on some folks that don’t like all caps or your style, but you’re never going to please everyone. So again, just be yourself. We’re all growing…
Have a good weekend my friend! Christy
I enjoy everything you write, you have a powerful voice, don’t apologize, keep it strong.

Personally, I love your work! If I didn’t, I wouldn’t complain. I simply wouldn’t read it…

Your voice is yours. People can always leave it, but never let them take it.
