Amanda.........we are all adults here, and busy too, and you will also notice that even if you are here a while, that different topics grab people's attention, or spark their interest, and some topics just don't.......you will see that, so don't take it personal...........you will tend to pick and choose which things peak your interest too in time............now myself.........i try to at least look at stuff, even though i have a hard time posting on everything b/c my computer is super slow with dial-up..........so i have to live with that..........but just don't jump to conclusions, you are too new to assume we are ignoring you for any reason.....just hang in like everyone said........plus i would rethink the statement of not being a nice person, that can be a turn-off, and from what we've heard about you so far, i find it hard to beleive that it is true...........so lighten up girl!!!!!!!!!!!!
Look, I know and understand that we are all adults here, and Im not trying to act like a child. As for you not believing that I can be nasty and mean, just talk to the people that have met me and know me. I was not raised to hold my tongue. If I see somebody eing stupid, Im gonna tell them, of course, Ill tell them how to fix the stupidity and try to explain as nice as I can that I dont have room in my life for stupidity. Some people think thats wicked and evil, then, there are people that think thats a good thing. They tell me that the world needs more people like me, maybe people within my range wouldnt do so many stupid things. Now, Im not saying that I am perfect and that Ive done anything wrong. God knows I have. I smoke, drank and gotten myself into messes that I almost couldnt get myself out of. So, if people want to say that I am a hypocrite then so be it. At least, I am trying to change.
P.S. I hope that wasnt too brutal : )
Amanda. Since you have been very blunt I am going to take the allowance of being blunt with you also. I speak for myself and no others on this board. Your comments may not necessarily be too brutal, probably border more on rude. You can not excuse rudeness by prefacing it with claiming you are not nice and are known as mean. That is being a bully. Being tactless and manipulative is not a way to encourage someone to better themselves. You can give someone a drink of water, but for goodness sakes, don't drown them in it! Also just because you were raised to not hold your tongue does not mean you do not have the discernment as an adult to hold your tongue.
As far as posting and recieving replies on the boards, it comes with the territory. I think all of us have experienced not having replies we had hoped for. I know I have posted something I thought was very thought provoking and so insightful and no one replied but then on something silly like who is funnier a hippo in a tutu or a zebra in a feathered hat receives 286 replies! Go figure! I have to remember that this board is not for my self gratification. This board is not responsible for my happiness. It can be something that contributes to my happiness but not responsible for it. My relationship with my Saviour is what is responsible for my happiness.
I am sorry you are overwhelmed at this time in your life with school and your pain. It can be very frightening and unnerving to face life's challenges whenyou are not feeling well and stressed. Lay your troubles and insecurities at the cross and leave them there. Jesus allready paid the price for you, fill yourself with the joy this gift of grace can give you. No need to be afraid, you are in God's hands.
Ok I dont think I have done anything wrong. And if pouring my heart out to complete strangers then I guess I had to learn the hard way. I am by no means trying to be a bully, manipulator, or anything of the sort. Perhaps it was wrong of me to say anything about anything. I am sorry and I wont let it happen again.
