So what's on your mind? Other than the fact that you are looking for knowledgable answers on behavioral therapy. What I mean is what's happening in your life that has brought you to these questions? I'm not being sarcastic, but sincere. I think you may have gotten off on the wrong foot, here. But I don't believe it's too late. People here are very caring and understanding.

Talk to us.

astute~ just my opinion... but you have truly stumbled across an excellent website here. Maybe it is not what you thought it would be or were looking for, but I would encourage you like Bevdee suggested... hang out and read awhile. Perhaps you may find this place to be a blessing like many of us have.

(((Astute)))

I will try to say again what I said on the other thread. Your tone needs to change so as not to offend others. You are going to do whatever you will, just some friendly advice. It is coming off rude how you are responding and we are a close nit of people. We are protective of how others are treated. You come off defensive and argumentative. I do hope you find your answers just step softly when dealing with others, Please.

I'm hoping it was just a misunderstanding on how you were perceived. That possibly, your tone may not sound as it looks. This is a common mistake which is made frequently, beings that we are unable to see each others faces and expressions, and unable to detect how the "delivery" was intended.

Just a thought.

Are you still around? If so, come out here, and let's start over. 😉

Astute,

In case you are wondering, we don't make a habit out of being harsh on evryone that walks in to this site. We as a group, are a very caring, and yet very hurting group of people. If you looka round long enough, you will find that there are people here going through, or have been through EVERYTHING from divorce to abuse, to a number of things. We are all here for each other. As we would be for you as well. Most people come in here and say hey, I need help. Not I am looking for knowledgeable answers. The one thing that I am certain of, is that you will find knowledgeable answers here, if you ask them in a slightly different manner. Tell people a little of what is going on, and ask for input. None of us are trained, aside from experience. I think that there is a lot to be learned from experience. But, there are a lot of people in here that have some serious self worth problems and self esteem issues....I guess what I am tryng to say is that a lot of us to some degree are a little fragile. My suggestion is that you slow down, talk a little, and go from there. That is what will get you what you are looking for around this place. You will find a GREAT group of people. If the way I read it is correct, you are going through a divorce, I am sorry. People here know your pain. And you will find peace I believe in knowing that in your pain you are not alone. You got a poor welcome here, and part of that was me. I am pretty sensitive. Especially when I care about the people here, and you came across very cold and insensitive...PLEASE read a little. And talk. In the meantime, I do hope you get the answers you are earching for, be it here, or elsewhere. But I believe that you CAN find support here if nothing else.

Mich

Ok Asute- I am pulling up a thread that says "Who are you people" that pretty much sums up AAC. Also just in the last day there have been excellent posts explaining AAC even more....the thread title is...something like "wondering if I belong here" I will bump that one up too.

Okey dokey I am done here : )

Again, sorry about my tone. I have problems, physical, marital, societal. Pick an 'al', I'm in the 'al' problem arena. But don't we all dwell there? I understand why I am here. I understand the issues that brought me here. I can't believe that where I am is more important than where you are. So I won't get into mundane details about my personal life on this website. This website has lots to offer. I don't feel like I can get as much as I can give here. People are confused, but there is no reason for them to be. There are answers, but those answers will come from within themselves. I have only tried to enlighten them to a possible solution. An alternative to the subjection of non-commited entities. I hope everyone who posts here finds their way, gets their answer. They deserve it.

I thank everone who has deemed my entrance into this forum as appropriate to respond to. But, I still have not found concrete, worldy answers to my questions. I will search on.

So to all,
sorry,
thank you,
adieu!

So then you are saying you feel you have more to offer than to receive. Well, this is good. Perhaps you are able to offer some thoughts and perceptions in some areas that haven't been addressed yet. I find this a positive.

Well, even if you don't find your answers here on this site, I would still welcome you here just for the sole purpose of offering some insight. Everyone's thoughts count, whether we agree or not. As long as we can respect one another to remember that there are times when we just have to "agree to disagree".

Thank you for sharing.

And LL, "adorable"?? Wow, that made me smile, blush, and bat my eyelashes! LOL! 😉 Thank you!

Free: It was a free trip.

Bevdee: I am trying to modify the behaviours that make me uncaring, and loveless.

LL: I love you too.

Jenni: My posts convey my thoughts about the issues I posted on. My thoughts about emotional, psychological, or societal issues all come back to the same point. If they offer insight, kewl!
So, may you only hold dear to yourselves those opinions and values that make yourselves a part of the world that bestows love upon all living creatures.

That last sentence was kewl! So there IS reason for you to stay, to offer your insight in the unique way you word it. Hang around, you'll find that you will be needed more than you know.

Hey LL! 🙂

Astute, you arouse my curiosity. Perhaps-

to sit back and observe as well. Data collection, if you will.
