Sometimes I sit out here and write about certain aspects of my life that make my skin crawl. Much to the dismay of some of you because I can feel the eyes rollin. But as I do so, I am keen to pick up on others and how they feel as well. I can feel certain posters and their angst, detached regret and often their sadness. I’d also like to believe that I can feel their happiness or at least their contentment.
Have any of you noticed certain quips or comments made by posters that are truly revealing? I realise that this could be a hard topic to discuss because most of us don’t like to make an ass out of ourselves when making an ASSumption but hey…whether you see it or not; this forum seems to be therapy for most of us. I’m wondering how constructive it is to jump down the throat of someone else online without compassion, when it’s obvious that you don’t know them in ‘real’ life? Is it something some of you do to feel superior? How is it satisfying to degrade or physically challange people online?
I’ve always wondered how most people can walk through life stepping on others and who don’t stop to think where exactly either party is comming from. Even if you can’t fathom it - why not think about it? It is that frightening? or perhaps most people feed off of others weaknesses?
To know ones self is not a weakness - it’s a strength - but it’s also about control that makes the difference.
I realise it’s easy to say you don’t care and conceal your feelings. Most people would say that it’s just about a good time and don’t think too much but in reality, these threads speak of something to the contrary.
