One less secret

Thanks so much to WNG. She gave me the radical idea that there could be people who know I blog, but I could maintain my privacy. What a radical concept. Setting boundaries. So, I tried it out. Thankfully my husband and I had a therapy session last night, so I was able to do it in a safe environment. Why did I feel I need a safe environment? I tend to think that people will want and need all or nothing from me, and I tend to feel that I am required to give it. Yes, he was a bit freaked out, and a bit disappointed that I didn't tell him earlier, but also accepted that I didn't want him to view it given I talk about my issues with him sometimes. Once I gave examples of what I write, what it means to me, then he let go. Of course, I doubt it's the end. It'll come up at another time, but at least for now, all is good.

OK, I will admit one thing. I didn't have the heart to say that there are few flesh and blood people who read it. Damn... so I still have a secret. Crap. Oh well, it's still one less than before.

It feels better than a secret.

So I guess that I still have to watch out what I say about the blog around him...

I think it'll be more like staged disclosure. So, I'll tell him you know.
