There are things I have been through and things I have seen that make see things that most people would rather turn a blind eye to. Not everyone is here to help you. There are people who truely love you and want to help you. I have had things stolen from me. My mom was mugged going thru the alley to visit a friend who lived about a block away. If a taller man tries to reach out to you, are you going to let him touch you and restrain you or are you going to do what is by instinct? I bet most of you would step out of his reach. If someone asks you to use something of yours and you do not know that person and have never seen them before, are you going to say yes they can or no because you do not know what they are thinking? If someone puts you down by passing their fear of failure onto you, are you going to listen to them? Are you going to care what total strangers think when they know nothing of you, your situation, what your going thru and what you have planned for anything? Are you going to take advice from a stranger who is listening to you when your not talking to them and really do not want their advice because all tney are is nosey and rude? I have gotten some ver weird comments by people who make me wonder if they are all there!

Stranger or not, I would want to know their opinion on what I have shared with them. It is my prerogative if I would do what they have suggested or not.

You shouldn't just trust anyone online or offline end of story. And never ever trust someone who says "don't worry you can trust me"

yes, everything you say is true! I've also received some responses that make me sit here scratching my head saying What????. I like to get advice from strangers like here on mylot because it's just their opinion and everyone has a right to their opinion. I'm sure I've said things to people here and they wonder what the heck I'm thinking!

You are right you have to think before you respond to comments on here,I have learn long time ago not to trust everyone,no I would not let any one reach out and touch me,I made a mistake one time, and let a guy on the bus, use my cell phone but I was sitting right there, so he couldn't have gone any where with my cell phone,I don't worry about putting me down because, that person does not know me, so what they think about me doesn't matter to me,No I never take advice, from any one I don't know, I don't care what they opinion is, they could be telling me, something wrong that is why I don't, take advice from strangers.
