You can blow it out your ear, my dear! : )
MOST HELPFUL POSTS
I feel like I need to clear the air about what has gone on in this vent since obviously it took an ugly turn which led to assumptions and speculation, not to mention other posts.
This is not to rehash or address what has been said by others but to clarify what I have said.
@Loureen- I wanted to send this in a pm but I have either been blocked or it's a com fail bc there is no 'send message' button. I made this post after a trying few days in my real life and a few not so happy / ugly / unfortunate moments on com. The post was not meant to bait anyone, to continue an argument or to single out any one person. When I said "Another thing I don't get is when someone follows you from post to post saying things yet says YOU are the one with the problem. **Shakes Head**" I was not referring to you. Before you posted another person had posted and immediately deleted her post. THAT is what I was referring to since this was the 3rd of my posts that she posted to in an aggressive manner. When I made the post of "Am I living in the 50's" it was not a continuation of a prior PDHT thread but a thought that was sparked by it. Your post on the thread in PDHT didn't offend me at all and the only relevance it had to my post in DM was that it mentioned that this is not the 50's. That is the one and only thing and you weren't the only person who said that. You were not even in my thought process when I made this vent or when I made the comments in it that offended you. 90% of this vent was related to outside, real life aspects, namely my birth parents. It was never my intention for it to be taken personally by anyone or for it to be more than a laugh or a 'I have days like that, too' in the posts. There honestly wasn't that much thought involved in it. It was just a moment in time. As for the things you've said in this post, if that's the way you feel so be it. There is nothing I can do to change that and asking 'why?' would likely just lead to more bickering so I'll leave it alone.
I hope this clears up any misconceptions and assumptions about this post.

uuuuuuuuuummm wow I have missed A LOT!
Referring to the OP, part of the reason I have had a little break, when you find yourself getting stressed in RL because of shit that's happening in cyber world, it's time to take a break!

Because I am the only one here who was on the thread you got upset about , you just so happened to post this after that thread ,.
Deflecting ? that is rich , haha !
Geeze I have no idea what the problem is either and I am not taking jabs ( exaggerate much ? ) , I made an observation , one many people have made , I wasnt insulting you but once again as predicted you are taking it personally .
Anyway it's been delightful *eyeroll*
Loureen- I'm sorry, but why would you assume I was talking about you? Is my post fitting of your actions? Just to be clear, your assumption is incorrect.
That's right, you don't know me so why are you claiming to know my feelings and if I take things personally or not? I have no problem with debate, it's fun and it's healthy. I in no way would ever expect the world to agree with everything I say, that's silly. Nor would I take it personally if someone didn't. I have friends from all walks of life, friends with very different views from my own, it doesn't make them any less of a friend. If anything it adds much needed insight into things I don't understand and haven't lived.
But really Loureen, why ARE you taking jabs at me right now? I'm 100% ok with disagreeing and debating but what I'm not ok with is assumptions and insults. Because you had an opposing view on a thread should I say that "I just happen to not agree with you on one topic ...something I have noticed you dont like , in ANY topic . "? Was it really necessary to insult me? Yes, that I will take personally bc it's a direct insult on my character.
Look, I really don't know what the problem here is but I do know that it isn't mine. I don't know why you make so many assumptions about me but all I can do is say that you're very wrong. You've got it totally wrong. Maybe you're deflecting your own feelings? I don't really know what to think but it's clear that you've taken some sort of issue.

Are you talking about me ?
Im not sure how you got that impression Stephanie , I disagreed with you in one post in a debating community , you took it way too personally sorry but I have no control over your emotions .
Stephanie just because someone is opposed to your beliefs in a debating community doesnt mean they dont like you , perhaps if you find it so hard to seperate your emotions from the debate then debate isnt really for you , Im not sure exactly what it is you want ...validation ? everyone to agree with you ? it doesnt work like that in debate , you seem to take major offence to at least one person in every debate ...
So yeah , i dont "not" like you , the idea is absurd , I dont even know you ,I just happen to not agree with you on one topic ...something I have noticed you dont like , in ANY topic .
And Im not following you around LOL Ive been apart of this group since Katherine created it and answer several threads , I answered this vent BECAUSE I do not have a problem with you and I have felt like you but once again you have taken it personally *sigh*
Sometimes you have to just sit back and laugh and thank God you aren't in the shoes of the other sad, bitter indigent.
Another thing I don't get is when someone follows you from post to post saying things yet says YOU are the one with the problem. **Shakes Head**
