I will be deleting my Myspace and my LJ accounts in the very near future. At one point I gave up all electronic equiptment save my alarmclock and my stereo and a few odd kitchen appliances without digital timers...I think I'm pretty close to that point again. I'm tired of living a digital life. I'm tired of having things I said years ago in a digital journal dragged up and brought into present as though it was yesterday and used as fodder in a fight. And most of all, I'm tired of having people chide and talk to me like I'm not a grown woman who takes care of a household and has for over Nine years. I *was* a kid then, I'm not now. I deserve some respect. Not everyone here is like this, but some are...Just like not everyone delves into my past to find the most rotten shit and compairs current situations to it claiming there's evidence of a cycle. These are my things to do, my things to look at and my things to realize. I don't need my nose rubbed in them, or to have to walk around with shit stains on my face.

As you can probably tell, I feel like complete ass today. No one needs to know why, no one needs to know what happened or what's going on. All you need to know is I'm currently miserable and until the situation resolves itself, I don't see this changing.

I'm sorry to hear that, I've really enjoyed the past couple of days of us nattering back and forth.

I think that there's times when we open ourselves up and just say what's on our minds, and readers aren't on the same page and read a lot into it. Hope your weekend is better than your day was yesterday in the festering pinesol hell of work.

I hope you change your mind, and get around to adding Di ;)

We'll see. I may end up deleting a lot of past entries, weeding through the friends list and just starting off fresh.

Btw, Di did add me to her Myspace.

I hear you. fresh starts can be good.

Maybe you should just take a long break from LJ and private your past entries. All my first years with LJ are private because after a while it was a completely different me.

I've been thinking of making some similar changes to my LJ use.

BTW, call M and I anytime if you ever need to to hash stuff out in person over a bottle of wine.

I only just added you on lj but so far i've liked having your company online and your posts on my own journal...
I know how it feels though to have things you may have wrote used against you, and i totally did an overhaul a bit back and made my lj friends only to many people. Hope things get better, you shouldn't need to get rid of somewhere that you can vent to friends and you deffinatly don't deserve to be treated badly for your ideas or how you feel.

I'm sorry to hear that, but in the end it's your life and your journal: both are yours to arrange as pleases you. I'd miss you online, but would still hope to see you out in real life. :-)

For what it's worth, most of my very best, most personal writing- the stuff I'm actually pleased with- is locked eyes-only private, and I intend to keep it that way. I keep this LJ mostly as a digital journal (for one thing, I can now type *much* faster than I could ever write with pen) and as a diary it's a gift to myself. I can read a past entry, and with just the vaguest sentance recall exactly what I was describing, know what that entire day felt like: I often regret not journalling for the first year or two of my marriage.

But whatever else, I wish you a better day tomorrow. :-)

Sorry to hear you are feeling so crappy. It will be a shame to see you go (out of LJ, that is -- I am sure we will see each other around.)

Feel free to contact me any time, subliminella at yahoo dot com ... I hope you feel better soon.

Take care ...

That's rather disappointing. I enjoy chatting with you via LiveJournal. Although if there is more negativity online than you're willing to put up with, I can completely understand if you want to delete your journals.

There is, of course, the option of locking past entries up tight so that no one you don't trust can read them. I use the Custom Friends Groups as security filters to keep access to personal stuff restricted to all but a few people, and simply remove people from groups if I no longer trust them with the information that those grouos get to see. I know a lot of people who just mark older entries "private" and be done with it.

Of course, if that doesn't seem like a suitable solution, wiping the journals altogether is also an option... although we'd miss you. *hugs*

Or you can do what most do, start a new livejournal account! I didn't add most of the people to my current account from the old list. And still weed out entries that dont seem appropriate as a public announcement.

Now myspace is a whole different story...

i think making your entires private is a better route...then just avoid lj. maybe one day ou'll come back...maybe not.
but on the off chance you won't regret deleting it.

if there is anything i can do...please let me know. even just needing an ear for ranting or whatever.

Don't delete your blog!

The minute you delete your blog, a spam site will automatically move into it and spread evil ads everywhere! I read this on the Blogger Buzz page.

Maybe you should just delete most of the content and leave one last tiny entry as a placemarker, explaining why you've left the electronic mayhem for a while...

Git those spammers.

All the best,

Neurotic Newbie

Yeah not for anything, I think you should just do a fall cleaning...rid youself of all that is'll only be left with the positive...I've done it twice in my adult life and everytime I did, I felt like my days got brighter...more clear. Again, just my opinion...who am I...oh...nobody...just a thinker.
