- Wedding: October 2011
I have posted on a few threads concerning this topic, which got me thinking. I’ve read a lot of ring threads about how someone either doesn’t love their ring (which they end up getting screamed at for and called unthankful for yada yada) and peole who post pictures of their ring, saying how happy they are and how much they like it (then get slack for that saying they are selfish, stuck up, and how they are flauting their rings and they shouldnt yada yada).
Now, don’t quote me on any of the above^ I was just using examples.
What I don’t understand is this; this is WeddingBee. A site where we can come and post WHATEVER we want about our rings, whether we love them, hate them, like it and want to upgrade, lost it, flaunt it, ate it, whatever…
so why does it matter what one posts about their ring? If someone wants to say that they dont like their ring, then let them! it’s not your choice! If someone says that they want to upgrade, then let them do so!You dont have to upgrade yours!
What each of us post on here about rings, dresses, weddings etc. is our choice, and the topics we post about in real life are also our choice.
It’s insanely rude to me for people to come and bash others for THEIR decisions in THEIR lives. If you don’t like something someone posts about whatever they want to post about, then that’s fine, you can disagree, but is it necessary to attack someone for their personal preferences and choices? no.
I posted this directing towards rings initially, because I see a TON of it in the ring threads, but it really does pertain to every board on WB.
I think we should all think before we post. Think first of where that person is coming from. If they are asking for opinions, then give yours, but also be respectful. We are all entitled to our own opinions and entitled to post on here whatever we please, but I think it’s unecessary to be so downright hateful to others just because they have made a decision or choice that goes against our own.
And I tried choosing my words as best as I could when writing this. lol
