Erika’s warning

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I have a recent post with the word: ¿Irritating? in the title, which could have been titled: “Erika’s warning” like this one. Erika’s name appears on comments in this blog, and she inspired this series where I try to explain the benefits of my blogging. This post might be one of the best examples of the risks Erika highlighted being realized. I was excluded from a family reunion. I have reason to believe the reunion was secret, and the secretive spell cast on more than thirty people included some attendees who know I was the reason it was secret. While this validates Erika’s point the same event validates blogging. I’ve waited my iced family relationships with Ghandi-like patience, and I’m invited to my mother’s birthday party. I’ve blogged my way through this with no altercations with the people who excluded me. If Erika is correct, and my blogging has left family members traumatized they’ve remained silent, and any revisiting “great moments in my blogging” will likely reveal my great moments in my blogging were not that great. Why ¿Blog? because it feels good. Why blog and take ¿Risks? like Erika highlights, because it got me healthy and back in the fold while generating zero detectable residual trauma. One of the worst parts of soiled relationships is their tendency to explode leaving both parties with regrettable moments. My blogging has created an alternative. There has been no explosions. I’ve been able to get indemnified with no validated cost to others. I started this post with an intention to mention domestic abuse inspired by the resignation of Rob Porter. I deny knowing of domestic abuse, but this points to circumstantial evidence of domestic abuse. Dear kind readers: Can you find an alternative explanation of a ¿Successfully-secret? family reunion. A reign of terror could keep secrets like this secret, but can you think of an ¿Alternative? explanation. Sincerely, Tom Doody. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
