I'm changing my myLot method!

United States
May 18, 2017 3:57pm CST
Lately I have been feeling like myLot is more of a chore to tackle notifications rather than actually enjoying myself on myLot like I used to. I reflected back on why I am on myLot. I am on myLot for a place to vent, express my thoughts, and interact/communicate with others while learning a new thing or two. It is therapeutic for me! I am not on myLot to develop any sort of relationship, share my lifetime personal story, photos... unless I want to, and etc. nor am I here to take judgement from people who do not even know me besides vague details. I am canceling negativity in my life. Thank you for listening to my little rant. I will go back to enjoying myLot the way I was.

Do what makes you happy! Don't let others get in the way of your happiness. You come on here to have fun, not to become stressed out, offended, and annoyed. I really like your posts! Keep on posting! And keep on ranting as you like. Have fun!

Thank you! I don't need more stress in my life nor do I need negativity either especially for people who don't even know me! When I'm fed up, that's it! No going back or comprising. I bundle everything and blow up, type of ordeal.

@infatuatedbby Your welcome! Exactly! Why get stressed out and deal with negativity from strangers? I totally understand. And you even give people chances to be nicer, but they don't get the hint. Have fun! Good luck!

@infatuatedbby If I took other people's evaluation of my character seriously, I'd become schizophrenic. I've been called: kind, helpful, friendly, direct, rude, looking down on members and have been blocked. I must be rather interesting, heehee.

Nothing wrong with telling your life stories though. As you never know who you may help by talking about what you may have gone through.

Of course! There is nothing wrong with telling your life stories, but for me - that isn't something I often write about for personal preference. I do not like it when other members pressure to ask me about my personal life constantly. I'm open to reading others and can help them if I can or say what I think.

@Courtlynn I don't mind general questions, however after a while it gets annoying. I don't mind if people want to share with us thats completely fine, some over share which is cool too. But I'm not one to share that much!

It's probably a good idea for us all to reflect on why we're here from time to time. Do whatever it takes for you to enjoy being here.

Yes, I was caught up with notifications and knocking them out but no - I want to read new discussions, I don't want to deal with continuous non-sense. So I am glad I stopped and reflected.

@infatuatedbby Aww, thank you Michelle! You have a great weekend too! Any big plans? I will be spending time with one of my cousins, who is in town for the weekend. It should be pretty fun for both of us, since I haven't seen her in a a while.

@moffittjc You are welcome! I know you're busy with your two jobs, family, loved ones so you only come on here sometimes but that's fine. I enjoy responding to our conversations! That sounds lovely. I'm not sure - everyday is a weekend for me so far I do want to go shopping but I prefer weekdays so I'll ask my mother on a weekday if she'd like to go! Probably more organizing! I'm trying to be more neat! Lol

Very well said, I have slowed down because lately it was more a chore than fun for me too. Now I read and comment only on those discussions I like, or where I know there are friends who like to interact.

That's one negativity that is getting repetitive and I'm fed up with that! After also speaking to you and another member - I also concluded I'm done with dealing with it. Like really? If you have nothing to say, don't say it at all. How is that relevant especially when they don't have an image currently? Judgmental much!

I jump around so much here. I start with a notice in my email then end up seeing a post of interest in someone's profile they have commented on.....or a interesting post on the side of the page to check out.....or see a comment from someone I know I've not visited recently. Just kind of jumping around here at a very odd time of day for me as I just didn't feel like doing anything else while I wait for hubby to get out of bed.

Very well put. I couldn't have said it any better myself. I am here more for the friendship and learning from others, than for the money, although, it is a very nice bonus. The interactions we do with each other help us all to earn in the end, and it does add up over time. I never stress about whether i will make the payout each and every month, as I will get it eventually.
