when you have no one to lean on but yourself is when you find your true strength. it is inside you. changing negatives to positives. being your own advocate. not worrying about what others think of you and just being yourself. i can't remember the full saying, but it's something like this, you can't please all of the people all of the time, so work on pleasing yourself.View Thread
I was once told that people see us as we see ourselves. if we are feeling defeated, then others see that and tend to treat us this way. so the thing to do is work on how you feel about yourself. i know it isn't easy when depression looms, but find ways to empower yourself. i had this big sheet of paper with power words and phrases on it that i taped to my door so i saw it every time i left the house. you can make smaller ones that you can tape to your car mirror or carry in your wallet. something you can see at any time to give yourself power and help you feel better about yourself. then the self you are projecting to the world is stronger and others will see that and treat you better.View Thread
I agree. this will never end. i have been on this board since 2004. we never had problems like this until they took away our mods. without mods the drama increased to the point that some people didn't care what they said or who got hurt any more. i just didn't want soulkeeper's comment to be ignored. the drama is not her fault.View Thread
this is exactly what i was talking about. some people, like speak2me4real, do not know how to leave things behind and in the past. they do not know to stop harping on things that are in the past and leave well enough alone. they insist on attacking members instead of trying to be helpful. this board is for helping people, not diatribes about what has happened in the past.View Thread
it's not you. it's the drama on this board. it got so bad with the fighting that people left. it's a very sad thing. we come here to get help and have a safe place to be. it is no longer helpful and is definitely not safe to post on here.View Thread
