It happened.

My parents both saw my LinkedIn profile in spite of the fake name I use there and now have access to this blog if they want to see it.

What should I do?

I don’t think anything will happen. I just don’t want them to see it.

  1. It’s a beautiful blog and if you were my kid, I would be proud of you.

    My kids have, especially in the teen age years, written things on FB and blogs that were less than charitable about me, but I somehow managed to set aside the offense and be grateful they were expressing themselves, sorting things out, and that they had the safety to be honest about what they were feeling. That’s what healthy parents do, that’s probably how you would see your own kids if they were blogging.

    • Thank you. My parents may not react as harshly as I expect they will. I even think my father may be proud of me in a way and be able to look past the things I have said (well, I haven’t said many bad things about him anyway) but he might not like what I said about his wife.
      Still, this is extremely uncomfortable and shocking.
      My mother barely talks to me anyway.

      Ironically, it’s my MN ex who is the Internet big stalker and social media hacker (he hacked into Paul’s FB account and started putting trollish stuff there about him) and yet he has not found my blog. I also don’t worry that he will. He’s too stupid to know where to look–he only uses FB and I don’t go there or post anything there.

      My parents are not stalkers or hackers and this was just going to happen eventually. I just wasn’t ready for it to be this soon. I have not heard anything from them.

      I am thinking about doing two things. Swallowing my terror and calling my dad and talking about it, and why I did this. At least I’m not using any real names. I think he might understand.

      And writing a post to them ON HERE about why I am doing this, because I’m sure they are reading this site now.

  2. If I were you I would just deny it is me. Doesn’t matter if they know its you, It would be an exercise in self validation. You get to do this, none of their business what you do. If you can step into this freedom, it would be great. I hope this makes sense.

    • No, I won’t lie. They know its me, They are not stupid. This is an honest blog and if it was time for them to see, maybe that was God’s will.

      I am going to explain my intentions in a new post though and call my father today.

      One thing I won’t do is give up on this blog due to fear of their reaction. I have lived in fear of what they think of me my entire life; I am done with hiding who I am. They are going to have to accept things as they are. If they don’t speak to me anymore, so be it. My mother and I hardly speak anyway. I would be sad if my dad stops speaking to me, and I don’t think it will happen, but if it does it does and I have to live with it. This blog is the best thing I ever did in my entire life, and I will never give it up.
