From time to time someone comes on a blog like this to offer comments and “help” to others with motives that are not quite pure or safe. Please be very careful of anyone who offers to do private email or make contact in person. What better place for a narcissist to find victims than among those who have already shown their vulnerability?
There is someone now among us whose story is suspect, inconsistent with what is presented on other blogs, and a false story suggests a wrong motive. I really cannot say more, but I do encourage you to be careful even of interactions here. If I find that someone is abusing commenting privileges or trying to connect with others off-blog, I will block that person.
Yes, I wish this could be a completely safe place, but that is not the day in which we live, nor is that the nature of online community. I am so grateful for those who are willing to comment and support others, and I wish I could do more to offer that safety.
That said, if you see something here that makes you uncomfortable, please feel free to contact me. If you would like to contact another commenter directly, send me a note and I will ask that person if they are willing. Be careful how much identification you offer about yourself. A full name, especially with mention of a town or occupation, is often all someone needs to find more information online. We won’t all agree on things, but you should feel safe here. If you don’t, please let me know.
As always, I am praying for all of you.
