I just have to post this. It seems that I have offended a few people on this board...........perhaps my honesty hit them in a spot that was so honest, that it shook them.

Well, should I apologize? hmmmm. Let me think long and hard about this.......

NO FREAKIN' WAY! I will continue to be honest on here about what I feel. I appreciate those that see past this and have gotten to know me for more than that.

Those that get so easily offended should visit the site: http://www.blowsmokeupmybutt.com. There people will empathize with you and tell you what you want to here.

As for this site, I will say like I see it.

Specifically:

mimi- I have an awesome life (thank you very much). My children are my life. Yes, I went through a divorce, but trust me when I tell you my kids are doing great now. As for my personal life, I will assume that you hide in some hole in the wall type on your computer and try to determine how your life got like this. I have a wonderful personal life....many friends and an exceptional girlfriend!

Kathy-one sentence for you. If you dont want the truth, you should not read my posts!

Happy holidays to all!!

Settle down, overcome. There's a big difference between being honest, and being brutally honest to the point of being rude or hurtful. There's no need for that on this board, because there is always a constructive way to get your point or opinion across - always. It's a choice how you choose to respond to people - and in my opinion, you reap what you sew. If you're looking for support, you may want to consider how you're giving it to others. Just my opinion.

overcome,

I see you justify the things you said (I didn't read them myself; I just read your post on this thread) in the name of being "honest" and that you will "say it like you see it".

Let me tell you a story. There were two construction workers at a job site, pounding nails. A little boy approached one and asked, "What are you making?" He snarled, "I'm making blisters on my feet and bashing my fingers with my hammer. Go away, kid."

The little boy went over to the second man, who had just as many blisters and bashed fingers as the first man. The boy asked, "What are you making?" This man looked up with a look of near reverence at the structure towering above them and said, "I'm making a beautiful work of art."

Who's right, overcome? Well, they both are. The men both spoke truth. However, one spoke a truth that's edifying and uplifting, and the other a truth that's degrading and demoralizing.

Remember, when you claim to be telling things as they are, you're only telling them as you see them, not necessarily as they really are. I urge you to consider this.

Poor kitty. Who would do such a horrible thing?

Hi overcome: If you are talking about your response to a certain young woman--you know, the "don't hate me because I'm beautiful" thread....

I understand being impatient with people who are young, or who seem to have "dumb questions," or who are bad at adding carriage returns to their posts, and so on.

The questions and spelling also made me wonder if we were dealing with another troll. But I figured, give people the benefit of the doubt as long as possible...let it roll, see what happens. I mean, it can't hardly get worse than....Tom.

Tom.
Tom.

Stop it!

Anyway, it is a good idea not to call names or make fun of people for their spelling. After all, I am capable of typing at a rate of 75 typos per minute, but you still luv me, dn't U?

Worried Dad,

You are a descent guy. You never criticize. As a matter of fact, I think you even picked up for me a few times.

Take care,

Over

Tom tom tom... oh. WD you got Tom back in my head. It's a tom that just doesn't quit..... šŸ™‚

Overcome:

You and I are on good terms I think. I appreciated you opening up and telling your story. I appreciate you.

I didn't read this other thread but the part about makin fun of someone that cannot spell. I have trouble hitting my a's. Alot of times they come out as z's or they are nonexistent. It is because I have a hand that part of it literally doesn't work. A handicap. Would you make fun of me?

I know you feel tellin the truth is important and it is. Reread the story about the construction worker and little boy. There's a big message there, and I know you are a big enough man to see it.

There is a saying... what goes around toms around. šŸ˜® I got that wrong... let me try again. What goes around, comes around.

Keep posting; just maybe try a little tact?

LOL!! mamac has a headache!! ROFLMAO!!!

Worried Dad, I too speak for downtrodden kitties around the world. Poor kitty!! What did it ever do to merit a kick????

Also, you hit the nail with the cyber-hammer.... I too suspect a certain "young woman" who is typo-challenged with being a troll. I mean, what kind of fake ... never mind or I will go off on a rant and I don't want to go there.

Heavy sigh.

Overcome. I just posted a response on your other thread and it came out longer than I expected. I wish you all the best and my heart breaks for you in missing your kids. My heart would break if that were my situation.

Peace.

overcome,

Just what makes YOUR 'truth' correct???? It is only YOUR opinion.

Everything you have said about me is NOT true about me.

I am very willing to face the 'truth' if its accurate. I have faced the truth in therapy for many, many years. I faced many painful 'truths' in group therapy for 5 years.

Again, you are totally wrong about me!!

'Telling the truth' as YOU see it is not a liscense for abuse, name calling, dis-respecting people or judging anyone if they don't live up to YOUR 'truth'.
