The Chatter Behind Our Backs

I was talking to someone recently about how open I am in my writing and post.  She seemed to think I should be more careful because people will 'talk' she said.  I laughed!

What I think about the 'Chatter behind our backs' is this:  People are going to talk and gossip no matter what you do or who you are.  I could be a 'saint', which I'm not, but some people would still find something to talk about.

Don't worry what other people think. Just worry what you think of yourself. That's what really matters!

I have nothing to hide and even more important, I want to help people.  That is why I write and share.  with all of you.  :-)  I know I'm a good person and I like who I am!  That's all that should matter. 

If someone doesn't like what I write, then they don't have to read or follow my blog and writings.  That's how I feel about it.  I spent too many years worrying about what other people think.  I now know that it doesn't matter what the 'Chatter behind our backs' doesn't matter. 

People are going to talk no matter what.  Our true friends are going to stand up for us and be there for us no matter what.  Even more important is how we feel about ourselves.  If we listen to our intuition and our hearts, then we will live a good life and be happy.  That is all that really matters, isn't it?! :-)

Thank you all who read, comment and/or follow me.  I appreciate all of you very, very much!  I promise after this weekend, I will get back into writing and posting more.  Take care and I hope you ALL have a wonderful weekend my friends!

Love and Hugs Always,


  1. You are so right...let them talk!! Doesn't bother me either!!

  2. Let 'em talk!!!!

    My idea is if they're reading your blog, obviously their either to nosey, interested in what you have to say or just creepy.

    So don't let the creepos get you down.

  3. It doesn't matter who you are, there will always be someone who doesn't like you. I've learned that the hard way.

    I'm glad you're so open and honest in your postings. You've brought more awareness of autism to my life and that's something that I probably wouldn't have had otherwise. Plus, I really think we're a lot alike.

  4. People who read you, read you ONLY because they like you/what you have to say. The rest can do whatever they like. If they are willing to waste their precious living moments reading you, criticizing you- it is their loss because their wasted time won't come back to them.

    Cheers, girl! You rock!! :)

  5. I grew up with a mom that truly worried about what other's thought and that was engrained in me early on. I no longer care what others think. I know who I am. When I was younger, it was difficult but now that I'm settled in my thoughts, I'm content.

    Love your honest posts.

  6. Thanks for writing this at this particular time as my grown up children seem to suddenly think what is best for me, No matter what I say or do it is their opinion that counts and if I don't agree then to bad they ignore me completely so I don't get to see my grandchildren. I am me and I do have a right to how I think and how I want to live.
    Have a wonderful week-end.


  7. Well said Coreen! I just happened to mention likewise to a friend of mine, that what others think about us doesn't matter so as long as we stay true to our belief of promoting & doing goodness. ^__^

  8. Behind your your face...the point is there talking about you! And thats a good thing because you need them to pay attention to what you have to say!! :)

  9. Yes we will always have chatter behind our backs!

  10. Don't mind them! It's certainly true that chatters would always say something either you write good or bad. What is important is you knew who you are and you love what you are doing.

  11. Don't you dare hold back. Speak your mind with gusto. It took me until my forties to embrace what I call my "inner bitch." It's not so much a pejorative as it is the acknowldgement that when a woman is strong society dubs her a bitch. So a bitch I became. Too bad. Write your heart out. Go for it. I can't wait to read what you come up with!

  12. we all LOVE what u write dear, it always interests me xxx welcome home :)

  13. Don't forget, it's Half Full Friday!

  14. You are so right ...people will talk no matter what!!

  15. I think very much like you on this subject. I am learning to care ONLY what God things of me. It is a process though. Thanks for the encouragement and prayers! Love this post!


Thank you for stopping by! I would LOVE your comments!
