Draw the Line

I know it's my blog. And it's supposed TO BE :

1) where I can write how & what I feel
2) my outlet to vent & let off steam
3) 'MY'-time - where I can have the "MY-time" all to myself
4) sort-of a journal where my children can read when they're older
5) my realm of infinity

This morning Ayah asked me to remove one of the entries I wrote earlier. He said - "Jangan cari pasal".

I guess he was right. That entry might hurt some feelings. And I don't want to lose some friendships just because I wrote what I wrote.

At this age, friends and relatives are very much important. The older you get, the more you treasure what you have. And it's important to multiply that rather than having the numbers slashed off ... just because.

Come to think of it, although this cyberworld offers borderless/limitless opportunity for me to write whatever I want to, it's actually up to me to sift thru the cans and cannots.

"The best way to keep your friends is not to give them away."

Couldn't agree more with you Kak Ja ...

Memang le blog itu suara hati kita ... namun masih perlu ada pertimbangan kerana kita ini masih banyak kekitaannya ... apa yang kita fikir ok untuk dikata, tak mesti ok utk orang lain ...

Pasal friendship ni pulak ... teringat kata2 ...
"Making a 1000 friends a year is not a miracle, The miracle is to make a friend who stands by you for 1000 years ..."

Peesha,
You're right. Actually there are so many things that happened that can be shared with others. Cerita office, anak-anak, neighbors, relatives etc etc ....

The people involved didn't know what I wrote. But if they read it, I know they'll never see the way I saw it. Betul tak? They will think they are right & kita pulak yg salah.

So, with the entry deletion, tutup cerita :)

Yus,
Kalau tulis pasal org yg tak kenai tak pa jugak... but since I wrote about orang2 yg baru jadi sedara, tak syok lah kan... incase they read.

Walaupun betui, & depa memang buat perkara macam tu - "jangan cari pasal.."
