Burning Bridges- The Blogophere

Let me start this post by saying, be careful of what you say, because while you think that you may be burning someone elses bridges with a nasty post you may just be burning your own.

This problem has been weighing heavily on my mind over the past few days and my husband has informed me that it is best to get it off my mind and then move on.

The rule that I live by is burn me once shame on you, burn me twice shame on me.

If you burn me once, you don’t get a second chance.

Recently I was taken advantage of by a fellow blogger. Now this person cannot see where they have done anything wrong. They cannot understand how I felt both wronged and offended by their actions.

As I ponder if I would make this post I decided that I would make it and then move on.

It is unfortunate that this blogger came to my husband and I numerous times for blogging advice and we gave it and then three months later we found our hands being bitten off and our bridge burnt.

I have always taught my children to be careful of who they burn bridges with because you never know when they will need that person again.

That’s a very valuble lesson don’t you think.

I hold no grudges towards this particular blogger or did I mean to offend them by speaking my mind and telling them how I felt wronged by their actions. I was mearly hoping they would understand that their actions were offensive and I had hoped that as adults we could have worked through any missunderstandings.

I’m upset by what took place, yet the damage has been done. I don’t wish to carry a baggage of bad feelings towards them, so I’m hoping that they will just move on as I am.

What goes around comes around and the bridge than you burn today may be the one that you have to cross tomorrow.

“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”

Remember that quote when dealing with the blogosphere. Maybe perhaps we could all learn to live together.
