Why is it so necessary for someone to tell me what religion they are? I am so tempted to verbally voice my opinion but the better side of me says, "Don't do it Sandy, you know what kind of conflict this will cause as if the situation isn't already barely bearable."
oh, trust me, if you give in, as crazy as this sounds were this is a virtual world and all....you feel kinda crappy. You get all crazy, and think..I CANT TAKE IT ANY MORE!!! I ahve to put in my 2 cents...and spout off somethign you end up regretting.. becuase behind all those nasty words, "idiot" "liar" and "troll" "god" and "love"....are real people with lives, and who knows what going on. Stay strong.
Thanks ya'll. This is something that is going on in real life. Virtual talk... that don't mean nothing and I certainly hope that people on the internet don't actually let what gets said on a forum upset their lives.
I shouldn't even be letting what is going on in my personal life upset me. I needs to get a handle on my emotions and just keep being the big girl that I am. lol.
I think that is mostly what is getting under my skin too. I know that it is necessary to be the bigger person, bite my tongue and just do what is right... but ZOMG!
When you have to do this and the other person is telling you "Because I am Catholic"... well you get the point. I think?
ps. especially, especially, especially when that person is telling flat out lies.
see that is kinda what I was trying to say. for me..computer world can be shut off, no big deal AT ALL. Yesterday, real life problems...try to ignore then with the computer..TOTAL overreaction.(religion does it ever time..you think i owud knwo better by now..) I try to remeber that, when I am typing. I would not want to be reponsable for pushing someone "over the edge." written words can have a hurtful effect, even if they shouldnt.
Indeed your right, it can do that. I wouldn't want to be that person either. Unfortunately, you can't be responsible for somehow knowing who you are really going to effect.
I think there was one time of the forum (I don't know if the person was for real or not) that wanted to commit suicide. I was like do it, whatever and others were saying the same thing. But after I wrote it, I had to go back and belay my words because it's not sure if the person was being really serious or just posing.
you can join me, EK, MM Mr V, BC and CG over on the slim shady thread for my hubbys birthday bash..oh yeah, and emie is coming for breakfast. we got wine, party balls, steak and salad, potoates with REAL butter...gonna be good...clothign optional.
I think some people reiterate their beliefs as a form of bragging. They have to remind THEMSELVES that they are "good" and "right". When people force their belief system on me, I feel as if I have been attacked. Everyone believes differently, if even only slightly differently. It is the same with the people who feel the need to express every aspect of their political views. No one cares...
Sandra your opinion is relevant and on here you are in the top 5 hubbers on this site. I know real life is different from being on a website but the person behind the screen isnt. I took critism from my ex for years but looking back now she was the one that saw life through negatitive eyes, now when I hear that Lily Allen song I think of her.
Now you smile girl and remember you are a special person because trust me you sure as hell are !
I never drink and drive...I got my kids with me!! I dont need protection, don't tell anybody, but my hubby did the snip so I wouldn't have too...and you bet!! I'll have 2 for you. Later, after Im done driving!! the "sin" has to do with ..nevermind.
Sandra I'm a Catholic. HEHEHE Sorry I couldn't resist. and I actually don't mind when ppl tell me their religion because I am interested in learning more about their religion. Except for when they start preaching then I get irritated.
"Co-dependent" connotes that someone needs another's approval to validate themself. If I felt the need to log on to the internet and spout off about my religion with every breath, I would be co-dependent. The ones who go on and on about their religion are doing it for two reasons. They need validation for their beliefs, or they want to argue with those who don't believe the way they do. I have seen these posts and I cannot believe that the "believers" do not post some of these threads to cast judgement on those who disagree with their beliefs.
Edmund Burke wrote: ‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’ - Isn't good men doing nothing really the evil ? What expectations should we have of those that are already evil?
Wilderness has a way of presenting a logical and intelligent conclusion to many arguments. What makes so many people drawn to religion although the bases of religion aren't based upon any logical premise? ...
You look better in pictures and quite disappointing in person?I need as many replies as possible (lol), I mean in fairness to those who look really great in photos, where those great looks came from if they are not...
Reading through some ( I say some) of the threads from a therapeutic point of view I think the person looking for solutions ( to personal problems) may end up getting more confused than when they started - your take
