When Someone Upsets You On Mylot

Do you discuss it with your friends and family offline? Or do you leave your online life, online? When I get upset with someone on Mylot, it does not seem appropriate to share it offline. People look at me like, who are you talking about? If you got off of that computer once in a while, the things that those people say would not bother you so much. They act as if I am upset with the machine itself. So do you have this problem?

not really I don't let mylot bother me, it doesn't change my life one bit if a mylotter agrees or disagrees with me, it is just an opinion,

you are so right and I have got to learn to not let it bother me as it does not change my life either I am still the same me and it is just someone else's opinion.

Yeah, I may mumble and grumble for about five minutes and then I move on.

I just let it go, if somebody tries to hurt me. I feel that there is no use of thinking over the issue again and again, I cannot change others' thinking, but I can definitely change mine.

Sometimes except with my best friend she writes articles online for a company and she has been in quite a arguments with a few people she has wrote for. So if I tell her anything about something from mylot she understands.

Of course I tell her about the problems I have had in here as well. With some of the replies I have gotten to a few of my posts. My other friends just don't get it.

This I will do - till my dying day! I love animals and I believe they have every right to live in peace and harmony just as we're allowed to live.
I'll tell one of my friends that is online as well and I'll tell my husband about it but he's not one to understand because he doesn't do these things that I do on here. I do get very upset when people mistreat animals and I will tell them so and I hold nothing back. I love animals and will defend them to my dying day.

I saw a commercial the other day about adopting abused animals. I will admit it was very hard to watch. In a sense, animals are just like our children. They are helpless and completely depending on us for their needs.

Well theres nothing for me to be upset about I mean i don't want mylot to affect and be over me. This site is cool and fun you learn a lot of things in life and It introduces you to things that you haven't heard before but to affect my emotional well being I think No..not a chance cause I take it as a challenge ..if you are able to speak for yourself and express whats on your mind you get to release that stress for the day.. No matter what they tell you or comet about you it doesn't matter coz people in different walks of life think differently.

Some time ago a friend did upset me about my response to his discussion. I have to say that I really felt hurtful as I treated him as one of my good friends here and he has so many posts here and I respect him a lot. I just let it be. But a few days ago I found that he even deleted me from the list. So I will never respond to his discussions any more. That's OK. It's not my loss.

Yes, I am also sensitive to the things that my online friends say. This is why I do my best to choose them very carefully.

The only person I discuss my discussions with whether they are ones that tick me off or not is my husband and no-one else. None of my friends and family know that I belong to mylot only because I choose to keep it that way. All of them are overseas but still, I know they are not as open as I am when I am online in a forum like this.

I do not mind telling my family about Mylot. I just don't want them to know the name. I do not want them to join and spy on me, hehe.

What is done online stays online - Unless I get really upset and then I have to tell my husband. I always feel better after I rant for a bit. LOL He has come to just ignoring me. LOL He knows how I can get sometimes. I am not easily offended though so it does not happen often.

Believe it or not there have been a few people on mylot that has pissed me off, hehe. I have told people in my offline life about it. My life on mylot is part of my life, I feel I have gotten to know a few people here kind of well. Some of my family members know some of my friends by name. I do mention my mylot friends to other offline people.

I actually do discuss a lot of what is going on here on Mylot to people because I learn so much here and like to pass it on. But, I don't really discuss problems with people here because it's not the same having a problem with someone on the internet as in real life. Like you said, people look at you like you've lost touch with reality or something. Unless they are on this site, too, they can't seem to relate.

Yes, there is a whole lot to be learned and shared on Mylot.

i think it's ok to talk to your friends and family your online life. i mention them sometimes in the dinner table. it's not really a big deal. it's just a casual thing to me. some people who are not really into internet might get interested in things that happen her. i just wanna share it to them. i never let things upset me except when the connection is slow. that really makes me irritable.

I don't discuss my myLot happenings offline. I guess occasionally I have told him about some funny stuff and he gets a giggle because he knows how addicted to it I am. But, there was only one time that someone tripped my trigger here and all I really told him (I was showing him the star feature) was that someone baited me into an argument and I took the bait and it cost me a little bit of my reputation here. I was upset that I let someone cost me something that I have tried hard to cultivate and, I just mentioned it to him, got it off my chest simply by mentioning it and that was the end of it. Although, I am still upset that I let myself get worked up and did cost my reputation a little bit. I learned my lesson though. I never want to make anyone here think any less of me. I adore the people here and, I hate the idea of people here thinking even the smallest bit less of me! But, no...I don't really talk too much about myLot to my family or friends. Maybe the occasional thing here or there. But, for the most part, it is mine for me and no one else!

I try my best to keep my online-life away from my offline life. If I get mad at someone I will vent. I will get over it over a ceritan period of time. This is a good discussion.

It is good to talk things out when you are upset. Especially, on Mylot. There are always people who can relate and give you feedback.

I can just hear what my son would say if I had told him about being upset with someone on MyLot he would say well you should not have started a discussion that controversial if you did not expect someone to snipe at you so I get my mouth shut and just tryto roll with the punches and remember that religion is the most touchy subject in the world and not to go there again.

I understand what you are saying. However, God is my favorite subject. So I never pass up an opportunity to speak of him.

I have never been upset with anyone on line. My online life is left online. Now there has been times my husband and I would be talking about something and a few days later someone would post a questions about what we was talking about, and I would tell him the question they posted but that's it. havfaith

My online life affects my real life, so if something online bothers me, I have to deal with it in the same way I would if it were happening in my own lounge room. Talking helps a lot. Just as well I got a partner who has long life ears!

I thankfully have not found an occasion to be so upset and worked up by things on mylot - yet. I do share some of the discussions with my husband and sometimes my children as well - if I find them informative, funny, or relevant to our lives... or if I need their expertise for an answer!
