Oh gosh, I hope this doesn’t come across as snarky, but:
Seriously, DO NOT give strangers, whom you have never met in real life, who wouldn’t know you from Adam if they passed you on the street, the power to make or break your day.
Make your decisions, be happy with them, and keep in mind that there will ALWAYS be somebody who disagrees or has a different opinion than you.

I disagree with a lot of people on Weddingbee, but I don’t hold it against anyone or talk badly about them. 🙂
I just avoid the posts I don’t like, and read the ones I’m interested in!

@misslillypad: I have been feeling really upset lately
I came on here and now it feels like I have it all wrong.
It sounds like the Bee is really upsetting you. A website isn’t worth it. You should stop coming here rather than let it mess with your head.

@absolutely_tati: Uh, what! That seems so unnecessary. Besides, your message here is perfectly readable. It had to be a PM, otherwise everyone would have called her out on it.

I hope this helps some of the posters to tone down some of the general snarkiness in posts lately.
However, there are some things which will always stir up drama (i.e., young brides, dollar dances (tradition in Midwestern US), some non-traditional wedding practices, vaccinating children, circumcision, abortion, and basically anything dealing with politics). Try to steer clear of any of the above topics or threads related to those topics since they are almost always controversial.

🙁 Sorry to hear that you feel that way. Hopefully you’ll stay and see that not everyone will be so judgemental and harsh to you!

When people start showing you the sticks up their bums, remember that if you’ve got a choice or a way of doing something that’s working well for you, that makes you happy, that feels authentic, and isn’t hurting anyone, the popular vote doesn’t matter. One life path does not fit all.
If you’ve got something how you like it and someone gets in your face because THEY think you SHOULD be doing it THEIR way, SNIP: Smile, Nod, Ignore, Proceed.

@misslillypad: I kind of know what you mean. I started a thread bc I was concerned about a friend and was called smug even though I was trying hard not to come off that way. I seriously just wanted to hear if other Bees had friends like mine and how they handled their situations.
