I'm ok with talking honestly to God. I figure He knows anyway. And God is pretty dependable. He is who He is, and He does not change.
It is people I have a problem with.
And it is with people who talk honestly about you without asking your permission that I have a real problem with.
I think there is a balance between hiding things and being transparent. There has to be.
But, my sister-in-law just wrote a letter to the whole family and informed them all that life is pretty stressful right now because of my brother's events, and because Ellie and her husband are having trouble and are separated at this time.
We hadn't told the whole extended family yet. Do they all need to know? I'm not sure.
And things are going better. In fact, it is likely that he will be moving back home within a few weeks here.
I didn't appreciate that at all.
There has to be a balance between transparency and privacy. And I would assume that in news like this, someone should have the choice of what is told.
But.... life goes on...
Now I get to answer more questions, and answering questions takes so much energy!
