mylot...my personal shrink

Philippines
May 10, 2011 8:42am CST
I have been a member of mylot for quite some time now. In the course of my membership, I have been posting some discussion that ask for advice from fellow members since I can't always confide in my own family and friends. Fellow members have been kind enough to read some of my discussions and offer advice on the matter. That's the reason why I consider mylot a sort of my personal shrink. The best thing is that there is always someone while to listen (or in this case, read) some of my downs and offer me sound advice. Others offer me another view of the matter which is good to understanding the situation better. For me, it's the ultimate benefit. Do you think mylot is a good place to air some personal issues?

Wow, personal shrink, I like that, and I agree with you. One of the reasons why I'm here is because it's easier to reach out, easier to get information, and I get better advice from a lot of people whenever we need one. And not to forget the friends I gain along the way. That's why I always come back here.

Yes, myLot could possibly b of help to you and me. Posting your personal issues here wouldn't matter for as long as you have your true identity hidden. There are lots of intellectual people here, who is really able to give good and wise advices.

For me it has been a great place to get advice. I would like to think that mylot has helped make the world a better place, one discussion at a time. I like the fact that the people who help give advice, are people who have gone through the same thing as me, and can therefore give me better advice then someone who hasn't experienced the same problem. I would just be careful and use your judgment to decided which topics are sharable on here, follow all discussion guidelines. Good luck and Happy mylot.

Good thing you mentioned this because i feel the same sometimes. I am actually seeing shrink every 3 months because i had some digestive problems and still don't know what caused them...might be stress. But mylot can be even better than shrink. When you talk to shrink he gets paid just to listen and doesn't really talk to you a lot but here you can have a good chat with someone who shares your problems. ltho i do have my closest to talk to some specific things can be discussed here at mylot better than in real life. So yeah mylot can be used to air some personal issues, without negative attitude of course. Have a great day

I've had serious digestive problems in the past, plus a cluster of ulcers, and found that drinking only water and eating a lot of fresh fruit cleared it up a treat. The doctor had told me that I would be on medication for the rest of my life. So I went straight home and threw my pills away! I've let my body heal itself, which it will do if we don't immediately rush off to the doctors at the slightest twinge. It may take longer but there are no horrible side-effects and you eventually feel so much better.

Not really. But I believe I am an open-minded individual that is open to what people say about what I shared here in mylot. I mean, when I post something here. I am trusting that the people who will respond will understand my position and my feelings. If they give me a response, whether good or bad or whether with me or contradictory to my opinion, I am grateful nonetheless.

Absolutely I feel that myLot is a great place to discuss just about anything. What might seem to one person like nothing actually can help the many with their own issues. So I do enjoy myLot because I have not only helped some members but also feel that many have also helped me.

For me yes, because there are some personal issues that we need an advice and it can really help us..

I've only just joined and already feel as if I am part of a sharing caring community. It is true, there are a lot of gifted and intelligent people on here who give genuine good advice. Some of the other networking sites don't have strong enough guidelines to prevent bad or offensive content. Fortunately for mylotters their do's and dont's prevent nasty people from popping up all over the place! As for airing personal issues, I think caution is warranted but we shouldn't be too neurotic about it because if we don't ask for help, we won't get it!

I also use mylot as a sounding board sometimes. It is great that people take the time to give each other advice. We are all here to socialize and help each other. I love the feedback I get and am amazed at how much better I feel about a situation after I share it on mylot. I have been able to get different views that I never thought of before.

I share a lot of myself too on my lot. You are right when yous say its our own personal shrink, you make friends that last and always share some of their own experiences too. So many of us become regulars for each others discussions and suddenly you realize that life is not that different for each of us but how we approach it is actually different...love this thing on mylot.
