hello! i am new here and i dont really know you, nor have i ever read any of your posts, but i know what it is like to not feel at home some place.
It wasn't log ago, i joined a message board and every time i opened my mouth to share my opinion i was flamed, and made fun of! They might as well
have called me WITCH and burned me!! What people thought of me really didn't affect me at all, and i realized how lonely these people really where,
that their only form of a connection with each-other, was to find a common ground by flaming others unlike themselves and, so that for ONE-moment,
together united, they actually felt somewhat better about themselves. (at my expense. ) To me this seemed childlike, to make fun of the one dirty
sheep who's wool just isn't as white and as sparkly as the others. what can we learn if we are all the same? and i didnt even give them a goodbye
like you have chosen to do here, i just left, because they weren't even worth it in my books.
so far, i have never been attacked once here, its nice to find a place, where people are not the same at all, there are black sheep, white
sheep, dirty sheep, clean sheep, skinny sheep and fat sheep. and they are not ganging up with each-other because they look similar. They are not
afraid to have a good debate that doesn't involve child like name calling or cowardly low blows. Yes.. there are still people here who do that
because not everyone is of the same maturity. but they are so few and far in-between. It is the monitors jobs to monitor that and block their
posts, but you should feel safe here, and bring it to attention and if you still dont, then i really wish you the best of luck to find a place that
you can feel safe and at home.
as for people not listening to you or your dreams, There are alot of people who need to speak here, and there are few who are here to listen.
listening is alot harder to do then speaking . Have you ever had a friend that just talks your ear off, but when you really need to be the one
talking, they are so into themselves that they dont give you the time of day? We all have had these friends, and we all have been that friend too.
so maybe, its more important to do the listening then to do the talking. because there is nothing worse then being that type of friend who never lets
the other talk when they really need to. maybe that is the what a real best friend does. listens...
i hope you dont leave, that you only learn and grow form this experience, but if you have to go, because you tire of these friends and how they treat
you.. then I wish you the best of luck in your life and hopefully you will actually meet someone who is willing to give more then they take.
