A few weeks ago, I came across an individual who, on a public forum, accused me of being a liar, and the stated reason was because s/he said that I don’t “give enough detail.”
Yet, there s/he was, leaving a link to the website I share with Carolyn (which is how I became aware of the comment to begin with), recommending the content of the website of someone whom s/he believed to be a liar.
Does anyone else other than Carolyn and I find this to be—
Well, I want to say “stupid,” but perhaps that would be considered rude (although it is one of the descriptive words I’m thinking of…), so I guess I’ll stick with “illogical.”
So does anyone else find this to be illogical?
If I believed someone to be a liar, I certainly wouldn’t recommend their blog.
But that’s just me, apparently….
But anyway… this short little blog post is just to let you know that I wrote another chapter of my bio. You can find it here:
For those who don’t find it to be detailed enough to be “believable”— for those whose ears aren’t tickled quite enough and whose carnal appetites are left unfulfilled and frustrated by the lack of sensationalistic details in any of my writings, including those on my joint blog with Carolyn — then I respectfully suggest you move on to another blog.
It’s my life, my experiences, and I choose what to share and what to not.
In fact, in every one of my writings on this blog and on the blog I share with Carolyn, I try to give only the necessary details of what I believe will be the most helpful to others without becoming lurid or sensationalisitic.
Sometimes it’s difficult to find a balance, though, because the line between necessary detail and unnecessary detail can be hard for me to see at times. But although I may at times fail (and for those times, please forgive me), I do try very hard to not put the focus on the wrong thing, because I don’t want to point people to the problem, but to the Solution. So if I err, I prefer to err on the side of not giving enough detail.
And that is how I will continue to write, by the grace of God.
So, no, I may not give enough details to satisfy those who are seeking after the sensational. However, there are plenty of people who love to pass on salacious and thrilling stories, true or not, to satisfy the voracious appetites of the red-pill-poppers and the rabbit-hole junkies, and those people are very easy to find.
But I’m not one of them, so if that is what you are seeking, it may be best for you to move on.
For the rest of you who are searching for healing from your own past traumas…
or for those of you who have a friend or a loved one who is working through their healing process…
or for those of you who simply want to understand more…
then I hope reading through the chapters of my bio is helpful to you, even in some small way.
