Sometimes We All Need A Break From myLot

and I for one just took 2-3 days from really being in here as well. I did have time later in the evening, etc. but for me I was trying to keep busy if online doing other things as well. I just from time to time need to regroup and spend time with my husband, etc. so if I am not here, many often will understand why. We have a situation with a Friend of mine from work who was needing to move from their place due to some problems beyond their control, and so this has taken my time and thoughts to other things as well. I always have felt Friends and family come first, as the Internet will always be here when things calm down. My friend from work had to move and needed our help, and is still needing our help, so my time could be a little more focused on helping them out as well. So do you ever take much needed breaks from here, or are you so focused on being able to post in here that you often do not take the time to spend with others, and having your family and friends mad at you as well? Yes, being an active member in here and being able to Cash out in here is nice, but that is not the only reason why I am here. I think we often owe it to ourselves as well to remember there is an outside world that needs us, and myLot will always be there when we can get back to it as well. But I am in here at least today catching up for a bit, and wanted to send a Quick Hello!! to all my friends and wish you Happy Earnings to everyone in here as well. ~~TINA~~

I need a break from some of the petty, vindictive people of myLot! NOT you, *LOL*! ;) There is just nothing quite like getting perfectly legitimate posts deleted because somebody does not agree with your opinion! They probably hope to drive me away never to return, but, SORRY, it's just NOT going to happen!

I understand you on this one! I have been an victim of having my posts deleted too! Every time that I turn around, there is an decrease in the number of my posts deleted.. And I know that I am not doing anything wrong to have it deleted. I try to be nice as possible with the members here, even if I don't always agree with what they have to say to towards my discussions. It is very sad, because I work so hard here at myLot, to have someone just come and minus me for no reason at all. It is not a good feeling.. I am sorry to hear your issue. I truly do sympathize with you on this one!

hello friend,yes, it is right.sometimes, we need a break from our work.of course, it is same as mylot.Because sometimes, we are so busy with no time to psend on mylot.so we just need a break. or sometimes, we are tired of posting something on mylot.so we just need a short break to rest and have a relaxation.but i could understand it is just a short rest to our heart.but i never want to stop posting on mylot except for a short break needs.lol happy mylotting.

Yes, I feel you on this one. I have an life outside of myLot that I have to tend to. I just wished that I could have extra money come in, so that way, I won't have to be here as much. I usually will take about 8 hours away from myLot in a day. I can't stay here for so long. I do have other things to do. I try to balance my time here and the time that I have at home too.

Yes I have life out of and away from myLot and would like to think that all members do. In some nstances members might be housebound due to health or other reasons so for those people the internet is a boon and keeps them in some sort of contact with others. It is good to take time away from myLot (or whichever forum you belong to) because it gives you the chance to reflect and spend time with friends in the real world. You are right that friends and family are so very important because those are the ones who keep us grounded. Plus we have to consider others, stop and listen to them whereas on the internet we can just type and not think that others are doing it at the same time. So take your time and help youf friend who needs you right at the present time in the knowledge that your help and support is no doubt invaluable and much needed. Good luck and I am sure you will be back posting on myLot when you are able to do so.

I took a break and because of it I will not make my payout of $25.00 by Nov 15th. SO, I will be trying to get as many post as I possibly can to see exactly where I will weigh in on Nov.15.

Well said, Tina! Sometimes we forget that there is the outside world when we are engrossed in making money online. For me, my family comes first. I spend time with my daughter and will go on the net only when she ahs gone to bed or naps in the afternoon. The only thing I lack spending the time with could be my hubby. Even he is online when I am too. So we're both busy, him doing his work while I mylot or do some other stuff. Not very good that way, but we try to be together at other times.

I generally contribute in My Lot on a daily basis but I did take a short break a short while ago! The only problem is, I found it difficult to get back into. So, I decided that I would continue contributing in My Lot and I would no longer take a break! Even if I make one post a day I want to continue on a daily basis. It is difficult though when you lead a busy life, it's hard to fit everything in. I generally concentrate my efforts just before I retire for the night. This is when I do most of my posting in My Lot. Andrew

I need to take a break from the internet everyonce in a while too. I just have to take time off and relax and just not think about anything.

This site can be very addictive. I take a break usually every Frioday through Sunday. This is my time to spend with my family. My wife works six days a week and Saturday mornings and Sundays are our time. I miss this place at those times I am gone but as you said, it'll be here when I get back. I've also gotten butrnt out from being here too long in the past and took a break. I've never had friends or family get upset with my time here though. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi there Tina. I must say that i just took 1 day break yesterday after i earned almost 1 dollar (98cents) for the last 2 days, yesterday i just didn't feel like staying here at mylot and posting - apart from me being with my girl, i also was not in the mood of answering topics here. At times i take even bigger breaks as i think they are necessary to all of us from time to time to increase our interest again.

Well said KrauseHome! Its true, everyone needs a break to spend some time with family, friends etc., Life is not just about mere earning and earning and going on everyday missing out dear ones. I usually spend my weekends with family and friends, a lot away from these stuffs and gadgets.

I believe that we are not always free to be here. We need to do something else. But mylot has always been my priority when I open my computer for the day. I am always curious to know what is in store for me in the mail. Maybe the only time that I leave mylot is about a week of total cut off when I am out of town.

I do agree with you. I haven't been on mylot much at all lately. And I have missed not being here. But other things have been calling my name. I work a lot of hours that keep me busy, and sometimes when I get off work, I just don't feel like responding to discussions. Yes, there are other things that come before mylot and mylot friends are always glad when we return.
