Taking the Lemons and Making Lemonade

Lemonade.Image via WikipediaSo after I posted Whats Love Got to Do With It? I got a phone call from my mom, a comment from my ex on the blog post and an email from him. Here is the thing although these few people opposed what I wrote here I am making lemonade.

The truth of the matter is I am the owner of this page and I created this space for myself to share my life and experience with others. But I don’t share those experiences in vain, I am not writing just because I don’t have anything else better to do. I write because I have something to say and I feel that I have to get it out and maybe touch or connect with someone else that can relate.

I think about it like this. If a woman is beat for years by her husband and she finally escapes from his grasp and is now stronger and is ready to speak out against spousal abuse so that other women can find their strength to leave would you stop her. No! You probably wouldn’t stop her because her story will inspire and touch someone maybe everyone can’t relate to her but someone will be moved by her story.

All I ask is that you look at my post from my perspective and then think about who I am writing to. I write post about my life and my experience to different people, not really people I know but to people that can maybe relate and feel like someone else understands what they are going through.

There is this saying if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen. Well honey I am here to tell you I love heat and my kitchen is on fire. So as my life continues so will my blog and my post about my life and my experiences.

I will say this I could be doing a million other things that are very unproductive but here I am working through the pain that was 2010 and finding the strength to turn pain into prosperity. There are many others out there in the world that have trials and tribulations and turn to drugs and alcohol me I just turn to the keys on my keyboard and write it out.

Basically my life is what gives life to my blog the content of my life is the content you will find on these pages. So that being said I am ready to start my New Year free of other people misconceptions and interpretations. Everyone is entitled to their opinions but so am I which is what my space here on The Mommy Chronicles is for.

I think anytime you open up about your life, someone is going to object. When you talk about things that have happened, someone is sure to see things differently. You just have to make sure they don't get you down.

it's sad to see you using your position as a "mommy blogger" to air out your dirty laundry. This seems like stuff you'd want to heal from before you pour salt on an open wound. I know that everyone is entitled to their opinion and 'keeping it real' is your way is sticking it to the man who did you wrong but, once it's posted on the internet, it's there forever.

Also, comparing your relationship to a woman who's been physically abused for years...come on. That's quite the stretch and pretty insulting to a woman in that situation.

Just 'keepin it real'

Hey Kyle,

I appreciate your comment and was actually wondering when someone like you would stop along with your 2 cents. This is the thing I like good and bad comments because I like the perspective that others have.

First I am not a "mommy" blogger. I am a mother and a blogger but this isn't a goody goody gum drops site. I don't scrapbook and I don't bake nor do I stay home with my child and do arts and crafts.

What I am is a an Active Duty Coast Guard member who is going through life as positive as possible raising my child on my own like I have for the last three years. And as far as healing who said I am hurting I was just giving an example as to how I moved from one way of looking at relationships to another.

A bitter person would have really went to town and gone into grave detail to really stick it to someone. I didn't because thats not where that post was going but the insight makes it more understandable as what I was talking about.

And as far as the example of the battered woman it was meant to show that people have life experiences that others can relate to it was not a comparison as if I am battered but it was an example of an experience.

Just like I share good experiences I also have bad ones but someone can come here and find something relatable and feel not so alone. But you can't please everyone and I am not trying to and even the bad comments add to my numbers so I welcome them all.

Have a great day and a Happy New Year "Kyle"
