What I've been thinking and the reality of things...

For me, I've come to realize that being on a site and arguing with people about who is right or wrong and the reasons... it's maybe taking away from us just getting on with our own lives as best we can. Maybe we need to start doing more for ourselves and letting others carry on with how they see fit.
Some say to just block or ignore what you don't like or want to see, but it's not that simple all the time.
I want to improve my life and the only way to do so is to concentrate on it and not on all the stuff posted here... many times to just get reactions.
I've met some really great people on here... some have become friends off this site. That part of this site is something I value.
So... I'm done replying to posts about abortion, hate speech, political fighting, vaccinations, etc...
I'm going to do what's right for me and improves my life and heart.... hopefully you all do the same.
Spot on commentary. It's easy to fall into that trap (here), I've certainly done it myself. I think the longer we stay in an environment like this, (not all bad) the more we're likely to sink into that behavior.

I would be far more likely to take heed to this than a condescending post. So thank you. 馃挄
@BreezeyBree2 Most welcome. I've always enjoyed your "realness" here,
@Magenta I really do appreciate this. Thank you.
I need to leave for work soon. Have a good night. :)
@BreezeyBree2 I think everyone should face the fact that what we do read on here, and I'm talking about things that are negative, really do affect our psyche and they do leave their imprint on our subconscious. They do affect the way we live. We need to spend time embracing life and enhancing our lives with good things, because I had just read something that negative things change our brain chemistry, and I believe that. There have been many times that I could have been more productive in my own life. We should get our work done first, and then come visit and enjoy our time here if we want, but not before.
I'm so glad you made this place work for you, thus encouraging you stay. My heart smiles whenever I see you pop up, even if it's merely hearts and hugs! We need you here!馃尫馃尡

I had to do the same thing, and hopefully many more will follow your logic. Sometimes I think many love misery with their company, but I sure don't. All that mess makes my head hurt.馃
@BreezeyBree2 You deserve to smile and know your presence here is dearly appreciated! 馃挅

Thank you for the lovely words, but I know many here, including you, add value to this place. I think it takes all kinds to better the community.

I must admit it took a lot of self reflection to "get here", as I had some toxic traits to conquer. All we can do is strive to better ourselves, and keep growing.馃尰
@MoonlightLullaby Self reflection, taking a good look into our own hearts and souls can be quite an eye opener.
Those who do that and see where improvement can be a good thing... they make a better self and a better person to be around others. I think I get too philosophical! :)
@BreezeyBree2 Amen to that 馃檹

I've always practiced this, but I was blind to certain things about myself until a situation brought it to my attention.

I think it's what responsible humans should do when we realize our faults, as a gift to others, not just ourselves. I learned more about myself than I ever imagined; the why's, how's, and what's.馃尫

I'm pretty philosophical myself. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or bad.馃馃き
A VERY positive and self affirming post! I hope lots of people look at the words inside those pearls of wisdom and ADD them to their lives, and NEVER block them.
@4meAndyou Thank you for the kind words.
I hope others may find it's better to do what brings positives on a site and to their own lives.

I don鈥檛 get into those arguments anymore. In fact, I won鈥檛 argue. I give my opinion, and mostly leave it there. There was a time when I had the energy to argue back, but after awhile, it sucks at your soul, and you realize there is no point to you losing your energy. I block a lot. I no longer have the patience I had 5-years ago.
Perfectly stated. Very simple concept.
@Teslin Thank you. I've seen some things on here lately that make me think I really need to concentrate on me and life more and this place less.
Yes, I use SW for some fun, entertainment and interaction. There are alot of good people here, but just as many "not so good". I try not to get involved in the similarworlds
politics and bantering. Just not worth my time. @BreezeyBree2
Yep, I ignore a lot of posts about politics, vaccinations, etc, etc. 馃憤
Congrats 馃憦. You finally figured the place out 馃巿
I couldn't agree more!
