Onward And Upward

Do you ever have those wrestling matches in your head on whether or not to respond to certain comments? Most of the time I decline to do so. But I do want to clarify some things to those of you I care about.
Each of the other parties in our divorces knew about our relationship from the start. We didn't have to answer to anyone but we felt it was the right thing to do. Besides we don't have anything to hide. Both of our marriages ended due to the choice of the other spouse. If you asked my former husband he would tell you that I have always conducted myself with integrity and honor.
I have read things on other people's websites where they have said nasty, vindictive things about myself and my friends. I have never responded to these writings or the lies contained or the lack of full disclosure on the part of the author. You know why? Because it is my choice on whether or not I read those blogs. Therefore I don't have any right to comment on what I read.
But I get that putting things on the internet means that they are open to the public and having a commenting feature means that I am open to comments. It's fine. I don't block anyone who isn't just completely out of line or offensive. If you don't wish me well then don't read. And I hope that you can respect my space and my right to have a personal life.
