I've decided to make my journal private, for now at least. This was a hard decision for me to make but it feels safer and more responsible for me to do this. I will miss meeting the wonderful new people who have wandered in and become my friends because they just happened to relate to something I wrote. It's a necessary price that I find I have to pay in order to protect my family and my serenity. I am so confused and upset by all of this recent discussion about me that I don't know who to trust. I'm starting to suspect my closest real life friends of being behind some of these weird anonymous posts.

I wish there were just one single button I could push to turn my entire journal from a public journal into a private one but apparently it has to be done one entry at a time. It's taken me hours to go through all of the entries I made from just this January until now. The next step will be to analyze my friend's list and see if I can figure out who my real friends are.

Maybe I'm overreacting, but I have been judged, criticized, analyzed, dissected and put down on a certain person's journal more than I can bear. I thought I could just disengage and move on, taking this as a great big lesson in not engaging with people who are all too willing to look down on a fellow journaler, offering unwanted advice, but then things took a turn for the worse, and anonymous people began to focus on my parenting and my relationship with my mother. I can't have that. There is too much of a chance that what I write here can be used to harm the people I love. I see this now. Sadly, I'm done.
