As I work on sharing the story of how I came to be an only parent, I am finding myself thinking more and more about privacy and anonymity. I am not ashamed of my story. Telling my story is not only therapeutic but it may help someone else out there feel not quite so alone. But a dear friend emailed me today and asked if I had thought about any potential impact to my son in the future if he were to come across the blog or if his friends were.
Now I HAD thought about this, but now I am thinking more. There is a line between being open/honest and maintaining some privacy for the sake of family members not being harmed in any way.
So where does that leave me in making sure that I can openly express myself but also protect him? I could use some feedback here! : )
