The first 'not so happy' post I made was on March 8. It felt good**** to get some things out and people didn't hate me for it.* Since then I've been tempted to include something negative in every other post I write. I even had to delete a few post (I hate that deleted posts can still be read in Google Reader don't you?!**) because they contained nothing positive.
On that dreadful*** 8th of March I opened a can of worms which I would like to seal back up. This blog was made to be sunshiny and bubblegummy. My life is good. I want to share that goodness with others, not make them feel sad or mad or anything else on my account.
I know there are people out there who read my blog, some who even comment. That**** makes it hard not to speak my mind, to fish for complements, answers, acceptance and understanding.
But I am determined to stop. From now on if you read a post of mine that contains anything negative (see asterisk exhibits) please leave a terible comment. Somthing like "I can't belive you katie. I found five negative comments in this post. Tsk. Tsk." or "If I knew you in person I would have to throw three rocks at you cause that's how many negative comments you have included in this post."
*Exhibit A: Assuming people will hate me is not very positive now is it. A tricky thing to catch but still negative.
**Exhibit B: This statement, even though in parentheses, is a negative one. I tend to use parentheses to hid the fact that the statement is negative.
***Exhibit C: 'Dreadful' is a very negative word indeed; such words often make there way into my posts without me even realizing it.
****Exhibit D. Making up excuses is not a sunshiny thing to do.
I am convenced that getting such comments will help me rid this negative phase out of my system. So please help.
Thanks in advance,
