As of recently, I have put myself into some ...........sticky situations. More than one. It seems to be a pattern with me. I dont want to go into details about those but say that I was in the wrong. I will be the first to admit that.

What I do want to explain is how or why this happens. My general personality is to try and be funny. I say inappropriate things sometime while trying to get a laugh. I am generally kidding and almost NEVER try to offend. However if I do get into it with someone, I do tend to hit below the belt. My temper gets the better of me. MOST of the time I end up regretting it and end up having to tell the person what I did. Sometimes it is out of guilt and afraid they are going to find out anyway. So I would rather they hear it from me.

But this has led to people thinking I am two faced. If I run across someone that rubs me the wrong way I will always try to make the best of it. I will try to be nice. Yes even if I dont like them and they are in my community I dont see the need to be rude. Doesnt not mean I hate them. It just means they bug me. Just like I bug others even though they really dont know me. Lets face it. This is a big place not everyone is going to get along.

But then there may come a time when I am being pushed to the limit and can no longer hold it in. I EXPLODE. I lash out and may say some hurtful things. But usually because I feel like I have been wronged in some way. So what I feel is that I am damned if I do and damned if I dont.

Meaning just because I am nice to someone that has pissed me off that is considered two faced. I am not sure what I am suppose to do about it. I guess I need to work on it. I also think it is possible to get pissed at someone and get into a major fight and then move past it. I dont like to hold grudges. I have gotten into fights with some of my best friends on here. I dont like to write people off just because I am pissed at them or we get into a fight. I would hope others would not want to write me off either because of a major fight.

You know in my working days I figured out just how catty and dramatic girls can be from the time they are about 4 (and it typically gets worse as they get older). On the brighter side we form resilient, close relationships and we make life interesting for everyone around us.

Don't change Shannin,I love your posts.
Plus everyone lashes out when they feel attacked.
Com's would be very boring if there was no drama!

I have been doing a lot of thinking and just realized there is no way a place with millions of women on it. That we are all going to get along. Not with pregnancy hormone and pmsing. So screw it. I am just going to have fun and be damned with the drama. I am so over it. Fun time now ladies. Its all about the fun.

But that is so boring. It is hard to find that fine line between drama and keeping everyone one interested in coming to the community. It is hard to keep a community active and yet not boring. Ugh. But you are right Jodi. There is drama and there is DRAMA. I just like to have fun. I will try to knock it off. blah.
