Letter to 'Anon'...

In response to this comment left on last night's post -

Anon said...

"I am a friend, who offers support and love whenever possible." Glad you included whenever possible, but it should say whenever you could be bothered.

Dear Anon

I said, 'whenever possible', because it isn't always possible to offer the love and support that everyone needs, all the time. Quite often we need to learn to love and support ourselves before we are capable of giving it out. If our own tanks are empty, we have nothing to give. It's as simple as that.

You are obviously someone who I have hurt or disappointed in the past. If this is the case, then I am sorry. You must know me to some extent, but how much of me do you really understand? Do you understand on an intimate level, what pains and heartaches I have been through? Are you aware of the amount of inner strength I've needed to call upon to get through the last 8 months, or even the last 8 days? Sometimes we all need to turn inside and work through the darkness on our own, and sometimes this means that we need to shut others out. Turn our backs on the distractions, and deal with our own demons. Maybe you've misread my indifference to you?

If my blog upsets you, then you have the choice not to read it. I don't always share what I write for the benefit of others. I write it for myself. It's a way for me to clear my mind, put things in perspective, and make sense of the everyday. And it doesn't always make sense!

Like I said in last nights post - I'm not perfect.

I just do the best I can.

Sending you love,
The Everyday Mum


  1. Hey Everyday Mum, I wonder if 'Anon' was there for you when you were going through the toughest moments of your life... Hmmm, I wonder. But you know if they weren't, and said "I love you, and I care, but I am dealing with my own drama right now", you would have understood, because you are a real friend.

  2. There are alot of contradictions in this blog.
    The everyday mum, said that "I dont always share what I write for the benefit of others. I write it for myself" Bolox! One if it truly was for yourself I agree with anon that you wouldn't put it onto a public blog, you would use a journal etc. And also in your profile you write " The everyday mum is my creative outflow. I hope you enjoy it" So that means that you are writing it for everyone out in the world to read and comment on it!
    You are right Everyday mum, that if anon doesnt like your blog then they dont have to read it, but if your going to write such a public blog be prepared to get not only uplifting and kind comments but also comments that you will not like. And you being a Leo, well says it all! Very stong, dominating, self opinionated and dosent take criticism very well. Mia

  3. I guess it's easy to nit-pick, isn't it. I'm prepared for criticism and I accept it. If I didn't I would have blocked the comment so that no one else could see it, and I would not have dedicated another post in response to it. I know who the person was who wrote it, and they are not worth my energy anymore. You're right about the Leo thing though... lol. I am a lioness who is proud of myself and my achievements, and will always protect those people and things that I love. Feel free to tune out from now if it's all too much for you. Blessings....
