A new promise.

My writing can hurt people and that makes me feel terrible. Long ago I stopped writing negative music reviews—aside from the occasional high profile major releases—because I think time is better spent turning people onto music they should listen to than dissing music.

I should have thought to apply that same maxim to my personal writing as well.

I work through things by writing, and I've always been public, but I admit I forget that other people aren't public. And have no wish to be. But I lost sight of that and deeply hurt someone. And I'm horrified by that. And unendingly sad that a person I really respected never wants to have anything to do with me again. Rightfully so.

It's been a rough few months but that's no excuse. So I'm never letting that happen again. I'm saying this publicly so you can hold me to that.
