Ooopps, My Crazy's Showing-Fun Again After All These Years-What HubPages Has Done For Me

I'm sorry if I am not who you thought I was.  I debated about starting another personality, but that is just so not me!  I am who I am, when I am, how I am.  If you liked me serious, you will like me even more now...now I have all the good of my seriousness and all the fun of today.

I have been much too serious for much, too much, of my life.  Why, you ask?  I was scared to get into another relationship.  I knew they were toxic to me, but never really understood why.  Thank God for HubPages, which made me meet myself through my writing.  All I want to say is THANKS for all the support!  I never would have made it so far without you all! 

I love HubPages! I do not imagine how long it would have taken me to get this far in my understanding of myself, but for you all! I have been hobbling along in life for years, never really understanding why I could not be myself. Here I am myself, and I feel accepted. Accepted in every nerdy, silly, lackluster thing I write. You all have changed my life.

I now write poetry...and like to! I, for the first time in over 10 years, share of myself. HubPages has taught me that it is OK. People will not make fun of me. They will cheer me and help me. What a tremendous supportive group, the likes of which exist in no other plane in our lives!

If you have been here since my beginning, maybe you have seen how I've grown. You may have seen a dark side of me, that was beaten into place by the light. Even though this is an Internet site, I hold my head up higher in real life. After years of thinking I would never fit in, I have found a community to fit with.

We are not a perfect community, but we are THE perfect community. We can agree, disagree, agree to disagree, without losing our friendship. This is the best thing about HubPages. We can be who we are and there is always someone to support us. Unless, of course, you are not a loving individual bent on co-existance. If you are a "hater" we will weed you out! We are a loving community, one that builds up, not one that tears down.

If you want to fit in and tear someone else down, go to another site like Facebook, Twitter, or one of the hundreds of other sites available. You may fit in there, but you will never fit in here! Here we are all about support, not tearing down.

If you would like a community that will show you love and instant gratification, you have found your home in HubPages. There is no other site out there today who can give you the love and support you will find here. We are writers. We are Nerds (well, maybe not everyone, but I am!). We are the World.

I have met people from every walk of life and found out that their dreams are the same as mine...to love; to live; to be happy. How is it that we do not understand our sisters and our brothers. Maybe everyone should be required to join a site such as HubPages. A site that allows us to make friends with our enemies...to understand what we find different..to love the unknown.

We are in this path together...this path called life. How can we hate each other, when we know that we love someone from there? This is what life is all about...understanding our differences and what drives them. This is the gift of the internet. That we can speak together and understand. Sure, there will always be someone who doesn't' get it, but more do than don't.

Here at HubPages we are a community. We have proved this time and time again. There is no-one strong enough to stand against us. We live, we love...we play. And our playfulness may well be the reason we are strong. We are a community! We are friends! Even in disagreements we come together!

WE ARE THE FUTURE!!!!!

We love each other no matter where we come from. We have "cool" friends in hated states. WE love each other for who we are, not for where we come from, not for who we know...but for WHO we ARE. We are the new life, we are the new world, we are family! And we will exist WITH each other!

We live this life together, all our hurts, all our regrets...everyone has them. We are related in this. We live with understanding, not misunderstanding and hate. The world already has too much of that.

We need to join together, learn to know each other, find out what we believe may not be that different from our brothersl We are the world! Let us be the world, together!

This is my official HubPages song! :D

Each and every one of us make a difference in this world.  Let us stand together to make our voices heard.  The song above still has the power to bring goosebumps to my arms and tears to my eyes.  We are the world!  Let us love each other, support each other and change destiny!

My love goes out to each and every one of you!  I want to thank each of my friends for helping me find myself and for helping me take these first necessary steps.  I could not have done it without your support, your love, your hubs!  Thank you!!!!

Hi k@ri,

I like this side of you...so upbeat, full of sunshine. Of course I also like your other sides too. As you said it, we accept each other here, we care.

Crazy is fine...so is formal...so is funny...so is any facet of one's personality as long as we do not attack or abuse.

Thank you for this happy hub!

All the best!

Kari: I loved what you expressed here! I too  love Hubpages; it has refined my writing skills, (its still a work in progress), have connected to people from all over the world, have had a chance to read what is inside a person's mind and heart, have been entertained, have learned, have cried, have laughed, have seen photos of  countries overseas where some hubbers live that I may  never visit in person, and it just thrills me. It thrills me, we are all basically one as humans.

Enjoyed this hub!

If you listen closely, K@ri you will hear an applause. Not just my applause, mind you, but the applause of many. How many you ask? How's about 80,000 and counting, K@ri? Great Hub. Like you and in the words of Eddie Murphy from "Coming to America," : I am very happy to be here! Great job K@ri. Hope we can chat!

Jill, I agree anything is good as long as we do not attack others. Thank you for your support! I cannot guarantee that I will always be so full of sunshine, but the more I learn, the more I think it is likely! Thanks again! :D

Tom, Thank you! You have supported me many times and I really appreciate it! :D It is more than enjoyment that I feel...it is community...love...acceptance...wonderful! I really could not have found my way so soon, but for you and everyone else. Thank You!

Violet, Thanks so much! We are one, the world is getting smaller and as you say...I have read hubs that make me laugh, cry and teach me so much! This is the greatest place in the world, and it is people like you who make it that way! We are truly blessed to know each and every one of us. We are a community unlike any community before it! I love this place! :D And it is because of people like you!

dohn, Thank you so much! Send me an e-mail. We are the world! We are the future! We can and do get along and love each other! I find miracles every day, and hubpages is one of them! I am sooo happy to be here! Thank you! :D

Christoph...??Really?? Do you really think so??!! OMG, I can barely type! To hear this from you...I know I said I would react to compliments better, but really? Thank you VERY, VERY much! (Will you tell Laughing Mom to read this if you ever talk to her? She really means alot to me. She is one of the first people who helped me find my way and now she is gone.)

Mr.Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, who calls his home Idlewood, I applaud you! (one of the best profiles I have ever read!) That YOU say this about me makes me ecstatic! Can you tell? Christoph, everything you write has such an easy humor and likeable personality! OK, OK...I know, I will stop, but it is all true! YOU are one of the most excellent writers around! Thank you soo much! :D (blushing)

k@ri 7 years ago from Sunny Southern California Author

BT, I have never in my life met a more supportive group of people! We may not understand everything about each other, but we do not judge! At least that is what I have found! Support is paramount...belittlement is close to nil. If anyone belittles, they are ganged up on to stop. Never, ever, ever have I met such a good, and supportive bunch of people. I doubt if I will ever, ever leave HubPages.

It is funny how you can connect with someone you have never seen or heard, but here...we do. There is a certain amount of honesty that comes with writing, I think. I don't believe you could write believably about love if you knew nothing about it. I think our hubs show us...maybe more than we want at times, but we decide what to publish...no others. :D

LOL And yeah, we're all in this together come hell or high water and of course, the good times too! Great hub! :D

Misha, I thought it was in Russian, but I guess I need an English translation. I applaud anyone that can learn another language...I am very stupid in this area! Thank You...you could always give me the Russian translation and I would beg you for the English. :D

Thank you Misha for your songs! They have been fabulous, and I love them...well maybe not all of them, but you know which ones! What you may not realise is how much I appreciate you taking the time to pick them out for me to listen to! What I really appreciated is how you learned what I liked and gave me more of that. You are truly a blessing in my life!

Chris, You have seen me and you have helped me! I remember thinking no-one would ever want to read my poetry and you told me to continue. That is why I did. You write the best...the best poetry. One day I wish to learn all you know!

We are here together, aren't we? But it is a wonderful togetherness! If you talk to golden, please ask him to read this. He is one of the ones who encouraged me (along with you) and gave me the strength to continue.

Without you Cris, I would never have written poetry...I would never have learned who I am...I would never have learned what I am missing. Thank You for that! It is funny sometimes to me that you are so much younger than me , but you have taught me so much!

Cris, I thank God every day that I was able to meet you, even if only through the internet. You have inspired me and lifted me up. You have given me hope and encouragement. We may be in this together, but I could not ask for better company! Love ya man! MWAH!

Cheryl, I am sooo glad to hear from you! I have grown, and you began it by writing to me and asking me about NM. I am very sorry that I do not see your stuff...as you may see, I have had my plate full. There are many things I am trying to work through, and it is wonderful to know you are there! I love you, and you have been a real friend for me! Thank you!

Now, Christoph and Cris...play nice! I love you both, in different ways! But equally! Cris, You have been there for me. I would never have come this far without you! Your angel wings do not begin to describe how much you have helped me! You need no wings...you are! :D

Cristoph, I love how you inject humor into all you write. Even when the house is burning down it is funny! I do not know how you do that, but I love having a laugh...and you give me many!

I do love you both!!!! Now play nice!! :D


Misha profile image

Misha 7 years ago from DC Area

OK, if we are talking just refrain, it's quite a bit easier than the whole song. But this one does not have a refrain actually, or rather has three different ones modeled on the same structure. So here you go:

I am sorry mama, these rivers don't flow anywhere

I am sorry mama, these birds don't fly anywhere

I am sorry mama, these people don't rush anywhere

And let me tell you that it is always a pleasure and never a burden to do something to a person who appreciates it :) I'll try to dig a few more for you. Love ya too :)

Aaawww, ralwus, you've made me blush! I may not be a star, but if I am a star in your eyes, I am a very, very happy woman! Thank you so much for all your support on my way to here! You have always been a gentleman and a scholar! I love your writing, you have a wonderful imagination.

You also, have helped me greatly to become who I am today! Your support and comments have always meant a great deal to me. Sometimes with wisdom...sometimes with wise a@@, but always with love and taste. Thanks for making me think and challenging me to do more! :D :D

isis, Thanks for the understanding! I really hope to be all that I can be. That doesn't mean I may not slip backwards once in a while, but it means that even after slipping, I will continue to move forward. I am tired of moving back. :D

shamel, I never really said, but I love your new avatar! I agree, there is so much variety and so many great things to read and see at HubPages! We disagree, but still love each other at the end of the day. And we still want the next hub! You put it sooo well!

I so appreciate your support. You may not have been here as long as some, but you have been a true friend. Always giving a caring comment when I am down and always laughing with me when I am up! Thank you so much for being here!!!!! You are a blessing to me. :D

A place where haters are vilified and love and understanding is held in esteem. A paradise in my world! :D

I could never be who I am without you and Dad! You both showed me the path and helped me always find my way. I blame you both for my cluelessness that someone may not want me or like me. I only ever understood that I was wonderful! Thank you both for you love and how you raised me. LOL, I may not always have liked it at the time, but it has made me into a person I am proud of! :D :D :D :D xxxxxoooooo

Teresa McGurk...there is a reason why you join this capsule with my parents. I have always felt a great deal of support from you. You have led me and helped me in ways you may never know. Thank you sooo very much for being here and being there when I needed someone!

You have taught me, most likely without ever realizing it. YOU are wonderful! I read your hubs and I find little pieces of myself and understanding dawns. I cannot really explain it well, but let me say, Thank you for being here! BTW: Has your tomato shown up yet? (LOL) :D :D :D You are a true lady!!!!! Learned, loving, down to earth, but sharper than a whip!

I wish I was better at remembering the names of songs! I really liked it even if it wasn't what I thought. Off to the next! I love the fourth! Absolutely beautiful! Off to the fifth...wish it wasn't the last. :( I love this one...and I love the picture. How did you know that after mountain lions my favorite animal is wolves?

Thank you so much for taking the time to share these with me! I really loved every song in this playlist! You are a very good friend!!! :D :D :D :D

I am just so truly happy that I clicked on your hub tonite K@ari....I couldn't identify with it more had I wrote it myself.. being new to hubpages, and continually trying, expanding and growing... or so I like to think, and making connections with so many of you... does really make me feel more than a sense of "community".. It's more like we are all a silent but reinforcing support system and after I hit the "publish now" key after each hub I write, I feel a sense of giving and like a family... my friends and fellow "hubbers' respond with their comments.. This is the best kept secret of my world probably in the last 46 years and it couldn't have come at a greater time in my life than now.. I'm so fortunate to have found this site within the past few months as I'm ending a 25 year marriage, and have recently had a close call with "open heart surgery" the time I've spent healing... has truly been time spent healing..not just my heart health.. but my soul as well, because of hubpages and people like yourself K@ri.. thanks again.

I knew immediately that you were meant to be here. Through your writing I could tell you were loving and supportive! You were about hope and not hate.

Thank you for being here and I am honored that you read me! Your poems are so well written...but you find time to see mine. This is very, very kind of you! Have you published yet? I would love to have a book of your poems!

k@ri 7 years ago from Sunny Southern California Author

Misha, I love the first one! The pictures seem at odd with the happy sounding tune, although I can hear some pain/longing/anger in her voice at times. I like the second, but not as much as the first! I really love that third one! (Thanks for this wonderful journey!) This fourth makes me want to laugh...I think it is because of when the singer gazes at the camera with a look of superiority. The clowns were funny also, but some of the images are really not laughable. I really liked this...even though it is enigmatic for me! I love the dramatic and emotional tone of the fifth video! Very nice song...it is replaying in my head as I write! I love the sixth one! Seems like a very fun song. The woman singing cracks me up, she is fabulous! I love her attitude! Is she the same as the one in the first video? The Summer Time song is wonderful! I really love that one woman's voice, the one on the right...she is the one from the sixth video, correct?

Thanks Misha! I really love the music you share with me! You are most kind to take the time...I really do enjoy this look into your world! BTW-You have fabulous taste in music! :D

Creating new identities is my thing, I only have 1 HubPages account but I've gone by at least 20 names in the past couple of years, simply tyring to start over and run away from my pain.. I think HubPages and it's wonderful users like you are helping me with getting rid of it all together.

I'm glad to read your hubs, vey nice. ^_^

Cam, You know more than most, you are so right...people do reach out, but it's up to us to see it! :D

Very true, some times though we are so involved in our own self pity to see that they are any people there... leading us to false feelings of being completely alone.

Hey, not picking on anyone... I'm guilty of it! LOL

Cam, You are so right...the challenge is seeing outside of ourselves and our perspectives. When we can do that, we can see the others! :D

K@ri, I have always found you to be upbeat but I do agree that we need to let go once in a while. Maybe more than that! I, like you find hubpages to be my outlet. I've been happier since I began writing. Thanks for the great hub.

K@ri, I can not think of a better song to describe us! I just watched that video for the first time in years. It is very moving. You could tell that it meant a great deal to those singers to be involved in that message and it means a great deal to me to be involved in this one!

Connie, Thanks! I had not seen the song in forever myself, but when I did I also felt it was the perfect song for HubPages. We are the world! :D
