I'm thinking about dusting off the old blog and making it public again (I suppose if you're reading this, then I did just that).
In all of the time I've been away, I only wrote one private post and that was way back when I decided to go private. I've since removed the post because it doesn't feel right just now to share such personal information publicly. I will say that writing the post was somewhat therapeutic for me, and it allowed for a bit of healing to occur.
I've just spent a bit of time reading through some of my old posts and I have to say that I no longer feel many of the feelings I expressed in them. I feel better overall, but, like most people, I've got plenty more personal growing to do. Part of me would like to delete some of the old stuff, as it doesn't give an accurate picture of where I am right now, but I've decided to leave it alone because those posts reflect where I was and what was happening at that time, and, hell, I spent time writing them, so I'd sort of like them to stick around.
A lot of navel-gazing went on in this blog and I suspect there will be a lot more of that to come, so—and this isn't meant harshly—if you'd rather not join me in gazing at my navel, then you probably shouldn't read my blog.
It's good to be back!
