I read lots of blogs. Almost all of them are baby related, but the subject matter of each blog varies greatly. For some strange reason, I read lots of infertility and miscarriage blogs. I don't belong to either of these groups, which I am truly thankful for.
But I often wonder if the authors of these blogs are annoyed by me. I stop over, read about their struggles, and often try to leave a comment. But sometimes it is incredibly hard to find the words. Although I can imagine how painful their situation is, I really do not know how they feel. Do they even want to hear what I have to say?
This situation often carries over into my real life too. My friend C struggled for years to get pregnant with her daughter. We were talking about babies one day, when I happily asked when they were going to try for baby #2. As soon as I had spoke, I knew that I had said the wrong thing. She looked so sad and hopeless. Getting pregnant was very hard for her, and even the thought of trying again is overwhelming. And I am a stupid jerk, who doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut.
So, I have probably been going around the blogsphere offending people and making them sad. I truly do not mean to be unsympathetic, I am just an asshole.
