How much is too much?

Well I am back from our family holidays and it was Max's third birthday yesterday, but instead of blogging about that I am thinking of not so nice turn of events instead.

As I have said previously we have not had a very easy time over the past year and things took an unfortunate turn yesterday, just when things seemed brighter than ever and we were celebrating Max's birthday, then BANG and we have to start from the beginning again.

I started writing this blog as a record of our lives and as a 'sort of' therapeutic exercise. I am a naturally open person and tell people in the street my life story (well not quite)! But now I think, How much is too much? How much of your real life story do you put on a blog, do you just reveal the happy side of your life or do you bear everything for all to see, if you do decide on the whole warts and all version then can you cope with peoples' judgements or will people be able to help instead?

I still don't know what to decide, the only thing I hope is that today will not be as hard as yesterday!

  1. sadly, I think when i started blogging, way back when, i didn't really know that strangers would even care to read about my family, so I sort-of bared all. (not fights between hubby & I, but you know...) Anyway, 3 1/2 yrs later and it's all out there and sometimes I feel REALLY exposed and sometimes I am thankful my readers know me & understand what I am feeling.
    It's a hard call to make....

    ps Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment. I wish you faith and peace in your journey for a fulfilled heart :)
