sweetiemermaid :  Super sweet post. 🙂  I definitely appreciate your perspective a lot of times because it’s often different from my own, but I also totally get that sometimes these discussions dredge up our own personal crap.  It’s absolutely happened to me a few times as well.  I suppose that’s partially what makes this site so fun and interesting, lol.

I think we all have things we feel particularly strongly about, and sometimes we go off on a little rant before we realise it and without meaning to. I know I’ve done it before. 

I reacted a little harshly to the same thread as the one you’re referring to for similar reasons – I’ve been a child introduced to endless new girlfriends and it had an effect. I probably could have phrased things more nicely though, we all could at times.

 

For what it’s worth coming from an internet stranger, I think you generally come across as a caring good-natured person.

sweetiemermaid :  I so totally get it, not for the reasons you have stated but lets just say that having cancer a second time makes me do a lot of eye rolling at people and some of their choices.  Like Im dealing with my mortality, which puts a lot of life into perspective. 

I get so angry that people are doing things not thinking about the consequences of their actions because life is damned short and it could end at any moment. I have been lucky that I dont have many regrets and while I have made a few mistakes on the road we call life, I like to think that I have made well thought out choices. So sometimes when I read some of these threads the first thought in my head is Really? You cant be that stupid. 

I know that is totally horrible, but I suppose at this stage in my life, where my life span is being cut short, I have a little more perspective about long term consequences.

Although we haven’t had issues, it’s pretty cool you wrote this.

I think one thing we all need to do better at on this site is remembering that every poster here is a real person whose thoughts and opinions are influenced by a lot of factors that we aren’t privy to. So we need to take a step back and stop assuming that someone who is coming off a certain way is actually like that. Instead of getting angry because the things they’re saying or how they’re saying it sounds awful coming from our own perspective, try to ask questions about where their opinion is coming from.

I think it’s understandable honestly and you come off as being a very sweet person for posting something like this. It’s definitely big of you. Happy Tuesday
