    We are all on hubpages to share our views, our poetry, our stories. Some jump quickly to ridicule.

    Hub pages is a wonderful outlet to share. Those that chose to ridicule and put down others writing are of many descriptions and many have mental issues, if you understand where I'm coming from. Some are so twisted in their perceptions and beliefs that they are strongly offended by anyone who has other views. Just as we accept the good reviews, so should we put up with the few who get "happy time" in belittling and trying to demean our contributions.  RESPECT is much more than letters on a page.

      Absolutely. Fortunately I have not experienced that but I have seen it happen to others. I just wondered why someone would belitte another but you make some good points.

      Well said, whonunuwho. I wish I had more to contribute to your statement, but there really is nothing more to say.

    Pstraubie28, I believe it is always easier to be a critic...than it is to create.

      You are definitely right about that. Creating causes us to reach down and pull out of ourselves the greatest we have. Being a (nonconstructive) critic causes us to do the opposite.

    I try to find the courage to share, in spite of the risk of ridicule. The affirmation that I bring joy to some keeps me going. Then I focus on those who find what I offer valuable, and let the ridicule flow away.

    Maybe if we all keep doing this, our faith in the genuine core of respect and love in all people will bring healing to those who feel a need to ridicule, in time.

    Based on ideas in Julia Cameron's The Artists Way, I think we are all fundamentally creative. When we are blocked in our own creativity (usually due to unresolved hurt), it is easy to attack creativity in others.

    I hope to keep finding the strength to continue to create, and to return respect and love for whatever is given to me.

      For sure. Every one has something to bring to this literary forum we find ourselves in here at HP. Cameron is clearly in touch with that which makes us make the effort to create. I will need to investigate The Artists Way.

      Hey - I think I know that book - I think I read it years ago!

      Hi PStraubie: Cameron's work has helped over a million people grow as artists. It is a guide worth coming back to many times. I lead workshops and develop new ideas for supporting creativity, integrating her ideas with others and my own experience.

    In a number of cases, those who "jump quickly to ridicule" are folks who make the terrible error of participating on the network while they are under the influence. It is called Hubbing While Intoxicated, or HWI.

      feennix...I have to remember HWI...o my...I can't agree more.

      Huh? Seriously? It never occurred to me that that might be the reason for some of the nonsense I am reading...guess my age is showing....or maybe I just have too much work to do....

    I do not mind people disagreeing with me. That is there right. I do not like it when they take part of a comment totally out of context to bolster their own point.

    Everyone has opinions about their beliefs, the benefits of being a U.S. Citizen, helping other people, gun control, how we worship. People have the right to question or disagree with those beliefs, but as mature adults and not as school yard bullies or know-in-all pseudo-intellectuals.

      One thing I do like about being on hubpages is that we hear the views of other. It helps me grow to have insight into what others think and believe. No one has a corner on 'the final answer.' You are correct. We should behave like mature adults.

    I agree with feenix completely.  Don't let the risk of ridicule keep you from participating.
