It’s My Party and I’ll Cry If I want To……..


Let me preface this by saying this is coming from a personal place, not professional. I get wonderful feedback from the blogosphere and others, I am speaking from a personal standpoint regarding this!

On to the party!

Thats right, it’s time for a pity party! Woohoo!!  “It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to! You would cry too if it happened to you!”

Well, I do not know if you would cry too but I like to think you would!  That does not sound right! But still……I mean, I am hurt! Genuinely hurt.  I will make this short and sweet and then I will move on never to speak of it again!

I write from my soul, as I said in my post earlier today! My writing is very important to me! I am an encourager by nature, and as such I truly appreciate what an encouraging word means to a person.

I am going to tell you something that I am not proud of…….the fact that nobody….n.o.b.o.d.y. encourages me in my writing! I have nobody that ever tells me they read my blog ( without me first having to ask) or tells me that they feel encouraged or touched by my writing. They never tell me I am good at it. Don’t get me wrong, if I have asked I get told some of these types of things.  But even my husband, who reads my blog, never tells me he enjoyed it, or didn’t, or that it may have been good or not. My family, my friends….nope, none of them. People who know that I want a meaningful career at this…nope! The only people who, by “liking” my posts seem to think maybe I have something to say, are you readers and fellow bloggers. And for that I do thank you!

So now I will step down off of my weeping box ( kind of like a soap box but for pity parties) and go back to doing what I love to do and do it for me. Which is what I was doing before. It just bothered me when I realized I have never received so much as a pat on the back for trying to realize my dreams!   But you know what is great about this?!  It doesn’t bother me all that much! ( once upon a time it would have really bothered me!)

But today I know It’s not about anyone but me and God.

Peace and Love~ Christine

P.S.- there is one person who told me recently that she reads my blog and likes it. If she is reading this, “thank you Jacky”  🙂

  1. You are right – God knows what an awesome person you are and that is what counts. If you wait for family and friends to compliment you, you will be disappointed. I don’t get a lot of encouragement either, but I don’t let that discourage me. As for your husband – I just finished a communication course and I learned that men think totally different than women. Men aren’t as emotional as women and they don’t understand the importance of complimenting and encouraging. It’s not their fault – they are just wired different. I’ve learned to ask my husband if he likes something and if I get a simple, yeh, ok – that works for me. Just keep on blogging and share your thoughts. I like them:)


    • Thank you for the encouraging words! I know you are so right! This is for me and God…..and of course anyone else who wants to read. I am good with that!

      I do appreciate your comment!

      And…..oh yes! You are so right about men! Woowee! They are something! 🙂


  2. Well dear, that’s sad. I wrote my whole life with no interest from people or family. Now that I’m blogging I do have some awesome people tell me I did a good job. It feels real good. It’s new to me. And yes you’re right. I click the Like button cuz I liked the writing and if that’s not you I’m confused. 😍


    • Lol! Well thank you !
      I do love blogging. It really is a very friendly atmosphere around these blogs. We get to meet some nice people!
      I enjoy reading other blogs and am always impressed with the talent I see.

      Thank you so much for your words! And for joining my party! 🙂


    • Phil!
      Thank you! These words are meaningful to me “part of the Creative Circle!” I have always wanted to be considered part of that circle! 🙂

      Ya know Phil….the older and wiser I get the more and more I know ( and agree with you!) in my soul that I am never alone!

      Thank you again for your beautiful affirmative words!

      Peace and Love~ Christine
