An Apology


In several blogs I have posted, I have said some cruel and upsetting things about my daughter. I want to apologize to her because it was wrong to take our personal problems into a public forum. I said things that I did not mean but wrote them because I was hurt and upset. That is no excuse, and I resolve not to do that in the future. I hurt her and her family and I am truly sorry for that. The blog was not meant to be used in that way. When I feel hurt and upset, I have a private blog that I can use to vent my emotions, which fluctuate and do not last. As I said, I am sorry for the things I said, especially because they are not really how I feel but were reflections of the passion I was feeling at the moment.

I need to acquire some patience and responsibility. I hope my daughter reads this, but even if she doesn’t, I will not be writing such things in my blog any longer. She and her family are off-limits, especially when I am upset.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    Well, I can’t exactly say what they say here. I mean I can’t find appropriate words in Eng. But I’ll say anyhow. Apologizing is a thing of big people. It heightens you. Only great people apologize. It shows you.(smiling)
