Hi Folks,

As if the last week hasn't been tough enough, I made a huge boo boo yesterday.

I completely deleted all of the posts!! Yes, all of them. I was going to revamp the boards until I found that a restore was in store... so it's the same old boards.

I had a back-up from 2 days ago which I was able to restore.

So... it's like the last 2 days never happened.

I'm very sorry that it's interrupted the flow here, but it was a big boo boo on my part.

I have to sometines lament at your frustratin on this site, SC. Let me be you for one minute...and i think that is what a lot of people don't do, even with their own families...I hope this site meets peoples needs.. I hope people find a safe place to vent and feel safe..I hope everyone will not have hidden agendas and manipulate this site for other purposes...but do you know what I have learned ...people will do that no matter what...because it is who we are...it has to be played out...i don't suck up ...that has never been me...but for people that feel the need to stay in the shadows and not be honest with yourself or others...you are still in big denial about who you are!!!!

Hi Irishlass!

Not to worry about the lack of "sucking up behavior", cuz it's not possible to suck up to me! I love everyone here! Even those that "hide in the shadows", though I know we'd all prefer the open and honest approach.

We're all here to learn, and we can learn from people that hide too. My hope on these boards is that we can all work through these kinds of things and support the hider or angry or defensive or attacking person in seeing how their actions & words affect others here, and support the hider in coming forward or talking about the problem. Not to be attacked, blasted, black-balled, or finally "found-out", but to HELP them and learn from uncovering their feeling perspective.

We could all write a book on this, but I think most succinctly, I want to say that we're here to help everyone, every last person who comes here... even those who raise the hair on our backs. In helping or opening up the issues in a healthy fashion (guidelines), we're all helped. It's not to say that no one can get angry or act angry here, or that no one can occassionally yell (caps) at someone here, but it does mean that when that happens, we need to STEP BACK, and think and feel for a moment... instead of fighting fire with fire (what most of us learned growing up, and hopefully have learned by now that it's not helpful) we can fight fire with looking deep inside at how we feel, and talking about it. Openly, honestly, and non-aggressively.

Nice words, SC. You too, 'Lass.

I second what you just said SC. Occasionally our anger or resentment allows us to find a bit more about who we are ourselves. But, in order to do that requires looking at ourselves, not at the person we feel resentment or anger toward.

Sometimes renewal comes in discovering that you are similar to the way one sees that person. Other times it comes in finding out that you aren't similar at all, you just thought you could be. Either way means looking at oneself in order to see what is there.
