LOL. Can I call ‘em or what? Those two gals remind me of when I was a kid and we would go busting into the chicken house at a dead run. That was some of the most glorious pandemonium you ever saw, with chickens, feathers, and squawkin’ flying all over the place! Trouble is, if you do that too much to chickens, they’ll quit laying eggs.
There’s no danger here though! Do that to these two lovely ladies, and they not only lay eggs --- heck --- you can also count on brickbats, watermelons edgewise, and all kinds of good stuff! Hehehehehe!
To Mommie Dark
Let me add a little here on the serious side. You say that I’ve misjudged you. I would like to believe that. I’ve seen a few of your posts that were reasoned and logical and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Why you waste your time and talent on putting others down without giving them the benefit of the doubt is beyond me. You can do better than that.
Wish I could say the same thing for Tina.
Now, could we move on to a topic that isn't about Mommie Dark's prejudices?
You write: “LW, I'm not interested in he said/she said. Life's too short.” Yeah, that’s for sure. And I wouldn’t bother except that there are over 1,400 people registered on this board and it looks to me like less than 1% post on it. Why? Partly because they want to stay anonymous as they are afraid of the Organization.
However, I’d be willing to bet that there is just as many who won’t because they know blamed well that they too would get savaged by self-centered lunatics who care about nothing except glorifying themselves at other people’s expense.
Oh, and I didn’t accuse you of starting that thread on “Witnessing in the Nude.” I’m merely emphasizing what Mommy (Wendy) said: “This is not a game.”
Wal, it wasn’t like I wouldn’t speak to her or anything like that. It was more like anytime anyone got near her she’d have her defenses so far up that you felt you had to have a lawyer with you to say good morning.
The thing was, she was like that to everyone. There were still my two brothers and two sisters here and they were all getting the same thing. The main difference was that they were trying to just endure it and didn’t know what to do. They finally had to give up, and that is what alarmed me. She was going to have a bitter, lonely, old age if things continued on as they were. I didn’t want that to happen.
You write: “I never distanced myself from her even though with her blinders tightly on she has distanced her self from me.” Precisely. And that will be the way that it will stay if you merely try being ‘nice’. I’m not encouraging disrespect here, rather, you need hers. You will need to gain her confidence in two things:
1. You will need to convince her that you will not bend where principle is involved, regardless of how mad she gets.
2. You will need to convince her that you have the self control to exercise honesty and fair play, especially when you are angry.
If you do not accomplish these two things, she will never gain the respect and confidence in you that she needs to trust you enough to open up. I sure hope you succeed. It’s a wonderful thing.
Peace and love to you too
To ianao (idiot class)
LOL on the support group. What would we name it? I’d like to have something a little more original that “Idiot’s Anonymous”. Any ideas?
“The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” That’s for sure. And I know you mean well too.
You write: “Not everyone you meet will like, support, accept, agree with or even want or try understand you.” That’s just the point. I don’t give a hoot about the acceptance and friendship of people who would judge others on such flimsy evidence. It isn’t worth having. (Note my comment to Prisca above.) They want to make others miserable? Fine. What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. That silly feminist yammering means nothing to me. I’ve long since proven otherwise to those who count.
“So, why not just cut your (my) losses and move on to something else?” LOL. What losses? You should read my email!
Thanks for the two cents. Rest assured you won’t find any enmity here. I may speak bluntly at times, but that by no means enmity. Rather, it is usually a result of anxiety for someone. Take care now, and I'm glad you found it encouraging. Keep your chin up, now.
