Well by definition it's not technically a secret as some people do know..
It's more I suppose that I am withholding information from certain people.
I have a plan, something I'm working on behind the scenes, something I've been researching and plotting and preparing for for some months now that mostly only my nearest and dearests know about so far.
But it's getting harder and harder to continue to withhold this information.
I must confess I've probably spent hours thinking about when and how I'm going to share this information and wondering why it is taking me so long to just say it and what all the fuss is about.
I must confess I think it's because once it's out there, there is no turning back, it will become real and I am worried people will start to treat me differently. I know that people will have questions that I don't have the answers to, I know they will want to know why and I think they will judge me and think that I am crazy, irresponsible..or both! I think it's fear mostly. At the end of the day I have to remember that this is about me and me alone, not them.
I know once it's done there will be a big weight lifted off my shoulders and people probably won't even care and it won't affect them as much as I think it will but for some reason that is not helping the words come out of my mouth.
How do you handle sharing difficult news? Hold on as long as possible or blurt it out and get it over and done with?
Linking up with Kirsty from My Home Truths for I must confess** and Alicia from One Mother Hen for Open Slather! Check them out while you're here!
**Kirsty had asked us to confess our pet tales this week... I must confess I am a terrible pet owner, have had a dog and a cat in my time and neither have lived to tell the tale :(
And now I do not have a life conducive to owning a pet :(
