    Not that I needed to post this but thought I'd let you know.

    I decided I really do like hubpages, but it can get to be much sometimes...especially in the forums.

    I took a looooongish break, just to see if it world be better for me...but I just kept thinking of things to write...guess hubbing's in my blood.

    So to all who told me I'd stay and that I should or was having an off day...cheers smile

    I really do like it here, just need to not get caught up especially in the forums.

      And, what made you think that you could leave that easily? lol lol  I know you are aware of many things going on within HubPages, such as many of the people who do participate in the forums who help others.

      That by itself makes HubPages addictive and will need every ounce of energy to stay away. And, we know you don't want to create any further frustration for yourself, so leaving isn't really an option.

      I'm on the other hand glad to see you've chosen to stay. smile

          It's never good to get into a battle with yourself. It's a fight you cannot ever win.

          So, why fight yourself? smile big_smile wink

          Cheers Sa Toya smile

    I am happy you decided to stay Sa Toya, the forum is just a part of hubbing, sometimes people are not nice --but it is all a part of it--- oftentimes many are just wanting to share their thoughts,,,,and almost all are friendly anyway so WELCOME back again

    Yes, you're a great person and a brilliant hubber....and it would have been a pity if you left! Don't forget that the real reason why we're here is to write hubs, so don't let the forums get to you! There's something's known as a too much of a good thing ...! wink

    I didnt know you were thinking about leaving! I must have missed that. I did noticed that you hadnt posted any hubs in a while tho big_smile So i do notice some things!! Many people on here are active hubbers but just don't participate in the forums. Just coz they're here that doesnt mean you have to go on them big_smilebig_smile

    I really hope you don't leave. I enjoy your hubs a lot big_smile

    See.. the real reason you stayed was because you know we'd come hunt you down and drag you back. tongue

    Seriously, glad ya decided to stay.

    I learned a long time ago that what happens online stays online.  There's no sense in getting upset because of something that some random person said.  In the end, it really doesn't matter. 

    I treat my life online just as I would anything else.  I'll take a break every weekend or two, get out and enjoy life, and then come back and continue on. 

    Just remember, there are people on here that care about you, and would hate to see you go.

    I'm glad you stayed!
