A less stressed, more easy going Foxy....

I finally decided it was time to make a come back here. It's been a long time since I posted and I was really starting to miss...well, everything and everybody. Now that my life is so much calmer I find I'm generally in a good mood, unlike the old and rather angry Foxy you'd all become used to. I hope that means I can actually have some fun times here again! I'm sure I'm just as opinionated on some topics as before...and maybe even more so in other areas but overall I'm just a better person than I was before. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and making more new friends! So to make this a productive discussion...has life ever turned you into a person you didn't want to be? What kind of drastic measures did you have to take to get back to the person you wanted to be? For me, it was a matter of changing people, places, and negative influences. I may not be completely "on the road" but at least I know where the road is now and what I need to do to get there.

yep, I got rid of negative people in my life, I avoided arguments, never got into them, and now instead of going on and on in a discussion where the other person and I do not agree, I just answer once or twice and when I see the conversation is going nowhere, I just stop responding.

Seems to me that's the best way to handle things like that (in and outside of myLot). Glad you responded!

Glad to see you back and posting again. It is good to hear that things are going a little better for you. You are right about changing people, places, and negative influences. Sometimes that is all you need.

Glad things are going better for you now. Glad you were able to change things in your life that were making you unhappy. Welcome back, I'm not on here much myself though I do try to respond to a few discussions a day. And as soon as I saw one from you, I had to see what you were up to.

WELCOME BACK FOXYFIRE33! How I have missed those rainbow colored socks! It is so wonderful to have you back all new and improved and "free" and happier! YAY! You have most certainly been missed and not at all forgotten! We were just waiting for you to get things together so that you could come back here with a clear head! So my dear Foxy what's up my old and dear friend? How are the kids? I am so happy to hear that you are a changed person! I know what it means to have to do some drastic measures myself! I did spend 15 months in a Day Rehab! I am now a little over a year clean and sober! So it isn't always fun to have to make drastic moves in ones life and they come in all different sorts of packages! So I am thrilled for you and hope to continue to hear more... Your friend, Opal

Welcome back, foxyfire33. You are always welcome by me and I hope many others in this community would do the same. We are all human beings and nobody is perfect so just be relax and just be yourself. It is better that we be ourselves but at the same time try to bring out the positive strengths from our inner side. Rather than being somebody else but we are not happy inside, this is worse. I appreciate you as what you are, and everything else doesn't matter as long as we do not hurt other's feelings. Even if we have hurt others' feelings it doesn't mean we have to change our attitude to cater to them. Not everybody will like us, and this is normal. Once again, welcome back and I hope we can be friends. I may not be around always, but I try to do my best so that we are able to meet again and have a discussion like this. Lot of love, Just me, Ladysurvivor.

Hey Foxy! I missed you and glad you are back. Its great that you got out of the situation that you were in, that was preventing you from being your fun self on here, and sometimes preventing you from being on here altogether. I know that I didn't respond to many of those discussions, and I hope you didn't think of me as being unsupportive. After responding a few times, I just felt that you needed to see things for yourself, and nothing I or anyone else could tell you would make you do what you needed to do. Anywayz, I look forward to seeing many more of your discussions now that you are on the right track!
