Self reflection on the board.
« on: September 30, 2009, 12:07 PM »

Such an odd thing huh? ^_^

Well I've been giving a lot of thoughts about things lately. And I've come to realize I owe all of you an apology.

Allow me to explain myself a bit.  You see, my whole life has been spent Not being allowed to express myself in any way. As such it's become well a part of me. So...even when someone is a total ass, i go well out of my way...grasping straws even to find the good in them. Sounds noble right? In a way it is, until you realize in a few people..that's just not possible.

However it did help me create something special for this board. Because it meant I could be something a lot of admins are not able to be for any number of reasons.  Now, I have had a new life for the past 15 months. A life I've never experienced before. Part of that, is being allowed to express myself, my thoughts, and my inner snark.

Sometimes...that also includes being easily agitated, annoyed, and snippy.

I don't like this.  It's been brought to my attention that I have been this way towards some of the members. That instead of stepping back like I used to, I would jump down thier throats. Did they deserve it? Well... I don't know really. It's not for me to decide.  I used to be better than that. 

What I've come to learn, is while it's good that i can express myself and allow myself these new emotions, I cannot allow it to rule me like it has been. And as such being showed on the board. I don't want to lose what I've worked so hard in creating. All because I have a new lease on life.

So, my applogy goes out to all of you. for not being as attentive as I could have been, for being snippy, snarky, bitchy, or as some may have suggested, pmsing.

I will endeavor to bring back what this board is all about. Because i don't want this to be like any other forum. It's suppose to be more than just that.

So, I thank you for sticking with me through all of this, and I hope we can make this place grow and be the kind, helpful, fun, loving, open place it once was.

So....whatya say? .....Friends?

Personally I didn't even notice, I've always thought you're just lovely ^_^

Well, thank you, but don't forget that sometimes a bit of snip is good- if it's how you feel, you shuldn't not have to say it. Just have a delicate balance. :)

I hope we can make this place grow and be the kind, helpful, fun, loving, open place it once was.

I thought it always has been. =^_^=  :kewtkitty:

Awww thank you :) Oh don't get me wrong Roo, Honest i'll Always be. And Open as well. Perhaps a bit of snark for good measure. But there's a difference between being that, and doing that without cause.

This does not mean i'll Change..it simply means that i'll be more responcible ;)

Aww Mish that's very sweet. But I have noticed a change...it's not quite the way i wante it to be. And well.. in light of certain things that occured Today [RIP] I want to show my appreciation to the members here more.

but..if all of you will forgive me. I won't be about for a day or so. need a break.

Completely understandable, you should take as long as you need. *hugs*
