Recently I've encountered some criticism related to a few of my posts. I'm sure that every new writer has some kind of internal conflict after receiving comments from critics, so I too am trying to filter my attitude regarding this subject. Hopefully some of my writing readers will have some good advice or insight in response. Until then, here are a few thoughts, take 'em or leave 'em......
I started this blog to promote intimacy in relationships. True authentic intimacy, not the kind acted out in sit-com's and reality shows.
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't observe or hear members of the younger generation being inundated with inappropriate, outlandish, vulgar and obscene behaviors that they're supposed to navigate through toward ideal interpersonal relationships. I believe that honest genuine relationships any more are viewed as something as odd or unnatural in today's society.
What on earth has happened when a young woman voicing what she believes in on national television regarding the institution of marriage gets publicly slain by the media, yet turn on ABC Family channel and watch 10 minutes of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager". If that doesn't make you wonder, ABC Family has just created another fine show for our younger generation called "Pretty Little Liars", 4 girls with dark secrets that will do whatever they have to to lie & bury those secrets........
OK,.....off my soapbox and back to my point.
I guess I can continue to write my blog based on what I'm passionate about and post a rating along with it to warn readers if it's appropriate for individuals under the age of 20.
That makes me wonder though,....what am I protecting them from? True valued, responsible respected relationships?
I'm gonna keep posting what I value and believe in.
Regardless of the critics.
So if I have offended anyone from my previous posts, I do apologize. Hopefully those who read this and have found some offense will understand that this is what the blog is about, simply don't read it in the future. I have no intention on changing my format, or my intimacy with others.
Have an intimate day everyone!
