Hey there, hello. Did you actually get the boot off the site or left on your own? I have been on sites where I was not welcomed and I too cried as I was trying to help and I was not accepted. I left the site and spent days in tears trying to figure out what I had done for people to tell me to go away.
Well I got through it but it made me gun shy. I had to go back and remind myself that these people did not know me, and I know I was there for the right reasons. I cannot take the blame for other peoples feelings and in the end I just let it go and moved forward. I refused to get into any online debate with them.
The moderator on your other forum should have stopped the thread from getting so abusive. It is ok to agree to disagree but not to be disrespectful.
I hope you find what your looking for here. It is good to let the members know when posting about a controversial topic, that your posting your opinion and your feelings.
I have found Healing Well to foster positive support in both giving and recieving. I hope you find this too.
Again Welcome to Healing Well. Stay with us and keep posting.
I have tried some other sites too, and I like it much better here. I don't think the mods or admin would let that go on here. There's a little yellow icon in the top corner of each post with a ! on it. If you ever read or experience any mean-spirited posts, just click that button and let the admin know. Also, the mods here are really good. The people on the forums I participate in are understanding and respectful of others, but if you run across a "bad apple" just let someone know. I know that mods can "edit" posts (I mostly see that on advertising attempts), but I'm sure if any discussion gets out of hand they can stop that too.
I think you'll find this forum to be so helpful as I have, and I think you're better off being gone from a place like that. I'm glad you found HW, and maybe the incident was a "blessing in disguise" to help you find someplace with more support.
everything in the universe l;ives off of energy. when deprived of that energy, things die. the angst throuwn at you in that other forum is a living thing. it is born, it takes in nurishment (other posts), it produces waste products (let's leave the meatphor for this one, huh?), and, eventually. it will die. everytime you think about that forum, you are giving it energy and precventing it from dieing - thoughts are real. when you went to "check up" on the forum, you helped it grow.
i am a crotchety old man who upsets people in all forums. i have been the recipient of such idocies in hw from time to time. ok, so maybe i may have provoked a few. but, basically, we do tend to agree to disagree in hw. i welcome you with open arms and an open heart.
