I was just thinking- (and this is super obvious, but I just wanted to chat about it)- there are some emotional/family/relationship posts that really tug at my heartstrings so deeply when I’ve been through something similar.
Of course I don’t need to have gone through something myself to feel deep empathy for someone…
But I’m sure you all know what I mean. When you’ve been through some kind of heartache yourself and you read posts about others going through the same things…it just kind of brings you back to that sad place sometimes, remembering what it’s like- whatever that may be!
Anyone else get super affected sometimes?

@Evie19: I do all of the time. I sometimes cry over the similarities. I always feel bad for people, but those one’s that are just like your story are at times hard to read.

@mwitter80: Yes, exactly. It just brings you back. I always hope with my advice I can help people by telling them things I needed to hear at the time…

Yes. When I see people going through things that I have gone through it really breaks my heart. I don’t usually cry over them though. The ones that make me cry are usually the ones involving TTC. My heart breaks for the ladies who want a baby and would be awesome moms and are having a hard time. I cry real tears over those posts.

I don’t usually cry, but I do fume. I hate, hate, hate when lovely hive members aren’t given the respect or love they deserve by individuals in their lives, and sometimes I just want to go find the people mistreating other bees and smack them.

The deployment posts bring back memories I’ve hidden well and I am so glad that this part of our life is over for good.
I am always happy when a bee gets engaged after having waited for it a long time. Darling Husband and I had been together over 5 years before he proposed, and while we were dating there were random (married after 6 months) people who told me that he didn’t love me because he hadn’t married me already. That was so not true, and it always bothers me when someone suggests to a waiting bee to end a seemingly good relationship just because her SO isnt’ ready for marriage yet.
It’s not so much the TTC posts that make me cry, but the miscarriage and stillborn posts that really bring tears to my eyes. I can’t even imagine! 🙁
