I do not care what you think about me!

Uhm, hello! I'm back with a "discussion", that's enough joy to offset everything else. It's been a while, I feel kind of shy, hehe. Okay, I'll get straight to the point. I need to vent. This is a short rant. You can now leave. I do not care what you think about me, I just want to make sure I am not misunderstood. I will hear you back, I might assume incorrect things too. If you notice, do not feel offended: simply correct me. I do not care whether I am right or wrong, I just want you to hear my opinion. I will hear you back, I will accept your opinion. However, please allow me to be passionate about mine, because I'm as stubborn as a donkey. Whatever may happen, whatever we may say to each other, I just hope our conversation ends with a smile, and maybe a hug. I'm sorry I'm often as gentle as a hurricane, but I never have bad intentions. I'm sorry if I hurt you, but again, that wasn't my intention. I just hope someday you will accept this. The heart is kept inside, don't expect to see it immediately. You will have to walk forests, swim oceans and climb mountains in order to meet it. The reward will be as big as the effort. I just hope you'll always be motivated enough to begin that journey.

Sabrina I never found you rude or "as gentle as a hurricane". Giving our sincere opinion is not rude and it's something I appreciate. I am glad to see you back, I missed you.

@LadyDuck Thank you! It's about something that happened on a Facebook group, some people take everything personally, even when it's obvious I never intend to offend or force my opinions onto someone. Of course, they react by insulting me, but thankfully I do not care what they think about me, I just want to make sure they realize I'm sorry for the way they feel, but less sorry for having an opinion. I think I should learn to be more gentle in some circumstances, I'll learn eventually.

@sabtraversa Facebook is a place where people do not think twice before offending the others, but they also get offended for little things. It's hard to be honest, speak our mind and be gentle at the same time.

You are gentle as a hurricane, gosh I'd say we are relatives, if I didn't know better I'm misunderstood all the time, say one thing and get accused of meaning something different! And every single one of us, is entitled to our own personal opinion, on all subjects. I'm sure glad you are back, Sabrina!

@sabtraversa I have been this way since I fell into a pit of depression, at 13 years old. It's the hardest obstacle I've ever had to face, second only to anorexia nervosa, which almost took my life!

@kobesbuddy Realizing that these things occur and that you can't be perfect for everyone, is already a huge step forward, the awareness definitely helps. The next step is accepting this, and it can take plenty of time, but I'm optimistic enough to think it's going to happen someday.

I have no idea why you feel you have to apologise for something. I've read your comment below concerning problems on facebook. As you don't have problems on myLot, you don't have to feel bad about anything here. I think it's high time that you understood that you can only stay sane on social media if you have a thick hide and don't take all nonsense that is posted to heart. It's a sad fact that anonymity can bring out the worst in people. Move on or leave the site. Do you have to have an open account on facebook at all?

@MALUSE It was a group I've been invited for some time, when I decided to comment a post for the first time, I had arguments. That's why at first I didn't want to give up. The low attention span, the fact I had to repeat myself several times because some people wouldn't read all I said but only judge from one sentence in an entire paragraph, made me quit the group in less than 24 hours. I usually only lurk on Facebook, I avoid being active, especially because it can turn into a great waste of time. Facebook reminds me birthdays and people sometimes share (legit) news or articles, or funny videos, it's like a newspaper I look at on a daily basis. But I don't really need an account there after all.

Let me tell you something love, you are worth every bit of happiness in this world. You deserve to be always happy alright. So let people have their say in whatever way they want to, just know that its you and only you that can dictate your happiness ok. Heart you!

@FayeHazel Thanks, it felt weird to come back, I almost forgot to add a picture like I did the first time I planned to add one: "where's the pic? I see no pic". Yes, it was for some people I argued with on Facebook, but I left the group. The admin said he was going to ban the next person who decided to comment on that discussion, so I didn't want to give him the honor to ban me, I "banned" myself. Oh sweet pride.

@HazySue Me too, I don't like hypocrites. If people could love themselves more and didn't always depend on the judgement from other people, maybe there would be no need for others to lie or pretend to think what they don't. Empathy and compassion are great, but we shouldn't force ourselves to lie all the time. Yes, as long as there's respect, we are allowed to speak our mind here.

Sabrina. I am one of those who have never had a bad opinion about you. I'm sorry you do not post much, so I have little chance to read your discussions. Only one thing about you scared me. When perhaps a year or so ago, you wrote in your post that you would be willing to eat, human flesh! You know, I see you well as "Mistress"!
