I've been down myself. I've been posting some bull. here, waiting for somebody to reply. And I found it somewhat helpful but... what you say here are common and well-known things, i.e. sth I could have thought of even without this site. Does anyone here takes it serious? Just curious to find out b4 posting anything, you know... Rita.

hi Rita,

well, i found this site very helpful. Of course a lot of things are *just* common sense. But that's part of most problems. We get stuck and find everything so huge and frightening and unique, when mostly it isn't. And: I'd rahter be a unique person whith *just* common problems than *just* a common person whith huge problems that make me unique. This site often helps me to put things into perspective. And I don't believe everything I read here. Everybody who writes is a peron of their own and they often see things differently than I would see them. But this is just one more thing that I like about this site: it doesn't take things out of your hands. You still are left whith full responsibility for yourself 🙂

Why did you ask?

I don't know....a lot of people, including myself, have found ths site helpful. Others use it as an enabling srutch to justify faulty behavior patterns. It's just like school, I think. You get out what you put into it. You can either use this as a forum to air your grievences or seriously take a look at behavior patterns that are harmful to you and try to cahnge them. It's really up to the individual, as are all forms of therapy.

I do believe that I have made friends here, great people, too many to list as a matter of fact. The most signifigant thing is that I am never alone. I found the site at a low point in my life, and now I give back. I have no idea how the person feels about what I say most of the time, sometimes they hate it some times I was shelter in the storm. But I give back what was given to me, its just my opinion, my experience, my perspective. There have been some strange people too, but for the most part, I think those that have had something to write to any posting, has been the best that the person had to offer. No one knows if it is real, or BS. You are the one that makes the decision. But people like, well, gosh, and golly, the wierdos, just don't hang around long enough to remember their name. for all I know this was someones school project that actually worked.

Yes, I strongly believe that this site is helpful.

Sometimes it's just a matter of individual opinion, different perspective and different culture.

Anyway, it's no harm listening to other's point of view, but each individual has to decide what actions he/she wants to take.

As everyone says, you get out of it what you put into it, so if your input is negative so be it, what can you expect but negativity back. Sorry, but no-one says it is a great panacea, a "cure-all" its just a bunch of people who are communicating to each other from many countries in the world, giving their own views, and trying to be helpful to others. With the present war strewn climate on the earth, hey, lets just be thankful for small mercies, and keep posting our own help to others in a fix. Cheer up Ritabrokenhearted, tomorrows another new day!

I take it serious most days. then when we get talking about silly stuff i take it silly.

If you want help...professional help then ... don't look here. Even if we are seasoned professional counselors and therapists we can only do little stuff here.

You can get info, ideas, support, sympathy, yelled at, etc.. here.

You can find pholosophical discussions, educational advice and nagging.

You can even start fights occasionally.

You get what you give...no promises , no refunds, no miracles.

Some find help some don't.

The Bible says there is nothing new under the sun...so the advice etc. will probly never be "new Nobel prize stuff". If it were we'd publish privately first.

Good luck in your search.

What did poor RitaBrokenHearted really seek here but couldn't find?

Better still, what did poor RitaBrokenHearted really need but couldn't recognize here in abundance?

What did we all need at one time or another, and find here in abundance, and what is more important, recognise when it was offered, that poor Ritabrokenhearted is too wrapped up in her own problems, to appreciate at this time?
All I can say is thank-you to everyone for being there, and I hope our friend Ritabrokenhearted, is granted enlightenment, to recognise in her hour of need, that we are all trying to show her there might be a light at the end of that dark pain tunnel, and that we will all join together to offer her our support.

Dilly...on this site it could be either maybe..

if you look at the postings as what a trusted firned or advisor would "tell " you it's "hear hear"

and where to find help...or at least someone to "listen" it's here here.

overall I agree in the non cyber world..it would be "here - here"

HEY maybe it is "Hear here"?

Janes, there you go again. You must be working for this cite because you are everywhere. Do you suggest that I post my problems on here.
I am not in denial, but I don't think I need counseling, even thought others seem to think so.
Althought if you find out what I have been through in the past, you might conclude that my actions are not that erratic as others seem to think. I know I am sounding very vague here or more or less not informative. But what I am trying to find out is whether its possible for others to manipulate and twist things around to make you seem like you are the person with the problem, when it is acutally the accusers own lack of confidence and self-esteem. i know again I am being vague, but this is definitely a common sense question I can answer on my own. But not everyone is in denial about having problems. I am definitely aware of the bad decisions that I have made in my life. I know I am leaving alot of things in the dark. But if possible, take what you can from this and try to give me a clue that sometimes others can make you feel as if you are the problems when it can be the other person who actually has the problem.
