I don't want to be one of those blogs where you only see the good stuff but in all honesty, I do censor my posts to an extent, for various reasons. I have friends and family that read and there are certain things that I feel they don't necessarily need to know (Why it doesn't bother me if people I have never met IRL know, I have no idea). There's also the fact that certain aspects of my job are sensitive so I definitely can't post a lot about it. This is horrible to say, but a lot of the time I feel like I'm completely restricted with what I can say, both on my blog and in real life. I'm very direct; I say what I want to say and then move on. I also wear my heart on my sleeve so even if I don't say what's wrong, you will definitely know something is up. It's incredibly frustrating and suffocating not to be able to say how I feel and be forced to keep it in.
A bloggy friend put it quite nicely, there's a fine line you have to walk between being "real" and being sunshine and rainbows. I recently asked in a post what all you would like to see in my blog and the overwhelming majority of you stated that I'm a "real" blogger and that you prefer it that way. Unfortunately, I don't feel like that most of the time. So, in an effort to be more real, I have decided to write every now and then about things that are tough topics for me and that definitely aren't sunshine and rainbows. I don't necessarily want to offend anyone but at the same time if I need to get something out, I should be able to have that outlet too.
After all, this IS my blog and I should be able to say what I want, censored or not.
