Do you know how hard it is for me to not write about all of the things that are wrong in my life? Probably not, because I don’t feel I have the freedom to write about those things online because to many people HERE actually read my blog. Plus I don’t believe in spreading my dirty laundry across the web. I have worked really hard to break that terrible habit.
The reason is because I know the value of working things out with my spouse on our own. I’ve learned that it is so much easier to work things out between us than it is when we bring others into our problems. Plus as his wife, I have to say it’s my job to build him up both in private and in public.
I would love to share my problems with some close knit girlfriends. When I watch the shows, Devious Maids and Mistresses it makes me long for that type of close knit relationships with other girls. I have been praying for that to happen.
I know the value having someone else’s opinion on a topic or issue. It helps to gain an outsiders point of view who isn’t in the midst of everything. I personally think being able to talk to others about things does help out a lot. It may not necessarily solve the problems themselves, but it does tend to help clear things up.
I would like to know what your thoughts on the topic are. Do you keep things to yourself or do you share them with close friends?
