It wasn't your fault. It was nothing that any of you did. That's what made it so hard to be away without even a moment's notice. It was rude on my part, and I only hope that you can find it in your hearts to forgive me.
After receiving a few emails from some of my readers in the past couple weeks, I knew that I owed it to all of you to explain my absence. So, without going into deep, messy details, I will give you the jist of it...
So, you all know that I haven't ever gone public with this little ol blog, but I've also never made this place of mine private either. So, that said, pretty much anyone could find me if they looked for me...case in point: if you type my name into Google, the first thing that comes up is "Jenna Rae Everyday Blogspot." It's not hidden, so everybody and their dog could find me. And I knew that, but I just figured that nobody that I knew would actually be stalkerish enough to actually google me! Ha! Boy, was I wrong!
Rewind, to my sister's wedding a month and a half ago...a few of my "friends" were invited and many comments were made by said "friends" to other guests of the wedding, some of which included my family members...cousins and a couple aunts. Comments such as: "did you know that Jenna has a blog? How bored, desperate and conceited is she that she feels the need to be pitied and gain "friends" via online?" Mind you, these "friends" didn't know that who they were talking to were related to me, and they were a little "tuned in" so the words were just flowing like vomit with no filter what so ever.
I didn't come to find out about this until after my last post...and right then and there I immediately became sick to my stomach. I was pissed. I was furious. I wanted to track them down and punch them square in the face. But I was also sad. And most of all, I was hurt.
You see, as I've mentioned before, I am not a person who likes confrontation. It is one of my biggest fears. I also really hate it when people don't like me. So, I do my best to make everyone happy and I try to please people even when I know that I shouldn't. It's just who I am. How I was made, and I don't know if I will ever get over that.
Therefore, instead of facing my fears, I just hid from them. I didn't say anything. I just decided to take a break from spilling my thoughts on here for any and all to see. But the sad thing is, it hurt me to be away from you. The people that are actually here to support me. To cheer me up, lift me up and to be my friends when my real life "friends" aren't who they appeared to be.
So I'm back. I hated being away, but I felt it necessary to clear my mind, get over my frustrations and just spend my free time focusing on my family. And you know what, it is actually just what I needed. I have never felt more refreshed, rejuvenated and more ready to share with y'all what is going on in my life! I've missed you all...like a lot!
|These two have been my rocks. I don't know what I would do without them!|
Here's to a new month. A new chapter. And a new look into my everyday life.
Until next time...
