There's been some CHANGES made - and, apparently, not everyone is pleased

    Seems likes I'm annoying others and hurting feelings on quite a few occassions when I post here.

    Oh, well.

    When I first came here, I was a people-pleasing wimp. I express my real opinions now and I'll be damned if I ever go back to silencing myself just to fit in. I don't care if I fit in - I never have, really - sometimes it bothers me but I'd rather be true to myself that dissemble.

    I'm sorry if I offend the well-meaning ones here; please understand that I'm finally finding my voice at age 52. I'm not going to pretend I'm something other than what I am.

    I know the matter really isn't important enough to mention here and that no one really gives a rat's ass, but I wanted to say this - so I have. I can't go back to being the nice girl who takes everyone's shlt. I just can't. I realize this is only the internet but it's good practice for RL.

    Not everyone is made of the same material or caliber and has the freedom to express themselves as their own, to be simple it is individuality. I find no offense and often encourage it.

    Not everyone is going to like you...strangely liberating ain't it?

    Everyone needs to grow. We don't need to be wallflowers.

    You can't please everyone. And some people don't want to be pleased, if you get my drift. Develop a tougher hide and say what you think.

    Personally, I have been called a "douche bag," and a "busybody windbag" on here................(hmmmmmm...."bag" seems to be the common theme!) to just ignore and/or laugh if off.

    You haven't offended me; I like your straightforwardness.

    I would really rather risk being offended and get your true feelings on an issue.

    I have spent less time on this forum in recent weeks than in the past - but I don't recall anything offensive.

    Let me toast another one with a new voice and opinion at 52. *clink*

    I understand.

    Make your actions and words what you believe to be right. If others don't like it, its their problem, not yours.
