Best Piece of advice I ever got and still give is..
"Don't put something in writing Unless you want the Whole world to know."
I think that is why I am stuck on writing what I want somedays. But it ihas also kept from expressing emotions that didnt need to be remembered. When I was younger, I wrote everything down and it was not a good thing, because people can misread, interprut the words incorrectly. I have told all my children the same, Be careful How you word your reports, your journals, Your notes.
It has seemed to be a better idea than not. I helped keep Me focused at the task of content.
Now, I am reverting to chat rooms, foums, emails, Everything has to be written, I think it is becoming an addiction. In a good way.
