Wendy posted that she is mourning the ease with which we used to have communication. My initial response was that I wanted more detail; an explanation. What is she referring to? Then I wondered if this has to do with my falling out with Marie & since it's never been discussed...This is what I've been thinking...
Maybe I didn't handle the situation with Marie the way some of you might have. There were things going on in my head that I didn't post about because I didn't feel the need to get into it. What I will say is that I wasn't comfortable with her for a while & blew her off when I had the chance.
If I had discussed it with you first would it have changed anything? If I had told you, privately, that I had issues with some of what was being said on her blog, her attitude, or her responses to me would that have been better? For what it's worth, I never deleted any comments she made despite her contention that I did & I never blocked her from my blog until she sent me the last few messages. If I had just stopped reading her blog & ignored her, I don't think it would have stopped. As I said back then, that wasn't the first time she irritated me & I was sure it wouldn't be the last if I didn't put an end to it.
It was never my intention to have her stop coming around to your blogs. For a while she was still there. She is a part of your circle. I just don't want her as part of mine.
I want to open a dialogue...Tell me your thoughts. If you want to blast me for it...Feel free. There is no reason that any of you should hold back.
Anyway...I'm sorry if my riff with Marie has caused the rest of the group pain. I hope this will help ease some of that.
