at times. For anyone that I may have offended I am sorry. I no way intended to imply that I am better than anyone that I know better than anyone etc. We all have different opinions that is what is great about mylot and about being here, and we can all express it. It is just that sometimes what we are trying to say does not come across that way. With out the ability to inflect tone in a sentence it is hard to express our feelings in a way that everyone can understand without reading too much into them. So again If I have offended anyone, if I have said something that hurt your feelings I am truly sorry. I know I can be blunt, to the point and sometimes I do not take the time to word my responses correctly. I will try and do better in the future not to be so quick to hit the post discussion button before proof reading to make certain that what I have said was not condescending in any way

You've responded to my discussions, or at least one of them, and I didn't find anything you said offensive. Of course, I might be hard to offend, being as how I have a tendency to be blunt and type what I'm thinking when. If people don't want honest opinions then they probably shouldn't post their discussions. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with being blunt and to the point. Don't change for other people, be who you are.

Thanks so much for your honesty and for your post. I just hope that if I have offended anyone they know that I truly had no intention of doing so

My friend, you know, when I post on an open forum, I expect to get all sorts of responses. From those who jump to conclusions, from those who have been where I am, they may or may not offer me advice that I agree with or will take, from those who have more experience in life, and offer me insight to the problem I have posted about, from those who have no patience, and only want to put me down for what I don't know, from those who are out to unload their own bitterness for not having the kind of braveness it takes to ask for help, and from those who are here because they just want to share, like you, like a number of people who have responded to me and my discussions. I EXPECT this because it's an open forum... Thankfully, and very appreciatively, I have not had any posters or responses that have made me feel truly bad... After all, I posted on an open forum and what I hear may not be what I want, but it may be what I need.... YOU have never been anything but open and honest with me... you may stumble in words, but I've never 'read' it as mean, pretentious, condescending, or as trying to hurt me. I look for your posts because i know when I need a no BS answer, I can find it in your posts. Just know there are many here, me included, who remember where we are and take it for what it's worth. An open book is an open story... so by plastering your intimate thoughts, ideas, concerns and worries on the interenet will get you alot more than you bargained for... This is not a place for those faint at heart or mind. For those you may have offended, I hope they take your open apology and move on because even if you are short on words, (in their opinion) you are not short on experience and you have much to offer to others. (smiles and hug)

I know you have responded to a couple of my discusstions. You dont seem to be rude at all. You just state facts and you get to the point. It's just your opinion and nothing more. I have seen a few people be completely out there and out right rude. Not trying to be nice at all just being out right rude. I have had a few of those people. I enjoy reading your responses and discussions. Keep them coming!! :)

I am not going anywhere... I just wanted to make certain that anyone that I had offended knew that I never intended things that way. I know I have had my heated discussions with a select few and I really to apologize if in any way I upset them or offended them .
