I kind of to agree with Spicey about fading out.... that is why I have not been "on" as much. There is an air of hostility here, lets tear so and so apart for his /her opinion thoughts etc. It is okay to disagree to even fight a bit. But not tear people apart and cause hurt. Even I had disagreement (albeit I am not perfect and nor do I walk on water) I lost my temper. Yet the point was made and we even seen things through each others eyes. So it was a learning experience.
But, I try to control my anger; I realize that we all have issues we are trying to overcome. If I am going to understand someone, I have to have an open mind and listen. I may not like what the person has said, I may not agree with it. But just as that person is entitled to his/ her opinion, so am I.
I have been snubbed, called a troll through an email, etc. Although I have not had the opportunity to get to know everyone here (a majority have been very nice). I sense a lot of undercurrents on the board.
Some of us have come through a lot of trials in our lives and I know personally I will not allow myself to be goaded or attacked. I have had much too much of that in my life. Spicey... I will miss you but will keep in touch. I can understand somewhat why and hope we do see you from time to time.
As the song says try a little tenderness.
