Taking a break........



I'm going to take a break for a little while. I've had so much fun with this blog, but in 24 hours, I've gotten two rather upsetting posts/emails. One thing I probably mentioned in 100 things about me is that I am a very sensitive person. This sensitivity is great for those that I love for I rarely hurt people's feelings that I love, like or even don't like. Unfortunately, my own heart is easily wounded. This blog is supposed to be fun, sweet, expressive, and an outlet. When I read words on here that make me feel upset or not so good about myself, then it's time to take a break. I knew I was lucky to have such great blogs that I read and read me in return. It was bound to happen sooner or later. I'm just not much in a mood to be put down right now. In fact, I'm not ever much in the mood for that -- as I'm sure most of you aren't either. Hopefully, I'll see you all later on. Be well.

Dear WW, there are a whole lotta people out there on the blogosphere. Some good, some not so good. Some just don't care about the blog author's feelings and that he/she is reaching out to communicate by sharing stories and life experiences.
Don't let bad comments/e-mails get to you. The blogosphere is a virtual society. Not everyone likes us and we don't like everyone. The nice folk won't post any bad comments and will move along to a blog of their liking. The bad folk - well, I'm guessing they'll want to vent their bad vibes. Don't let them win by stepping away from your own blog.
Take a break if you need to. But, come back soon. You have a lot of blog friends here waiting for you!

I wish you Health and Happiness for the New Year!

WW You can't let these anon's get you down sugar! I find anyone that hides behind an anonomous name is not worth my spit, much less any hurt they may cause. I am quite sensitive as well... but somewhere you have to draw the line. I placed my line in the sand to not let ANYONE ruin what makes me feel good... and blogging makes me happy. Please, if you need to talk... you know where I am. Hugsssssss darlin', we loves ya!!!

Don't even give a thought to nasty comments. Do like I do and delete them. I don't even acknowledge their existance. No need to let it get to ya. I personally enjoy your blog and am a regular reader so stay at it. You will find nasty comments come from anonymous posters, not your friends like us. My name and photo may not be on my blog either but many of my visitors know who I am and I never comment on anyones blog anonymously.

You don't have to accept anonymous blogs and I am sorry to see you take a small break, (look who is talking, that is what I did) Your blog was a bright spot in my life hope you come back soon

Well heck, I posted comments anonymously because, frankly, I didn't know how to do otherwise. I sure hope I didn't cause any grief. I agree with the others, don't let some jerk ruin your day and as for me, ruin mine too because I won't have your comments to read. You really showed a lot of originality and creativity which are the reasons I visited you almost every day. I'm posting this anonymously but am going to try to figure out how to get another identity. Just remember it is me. Lots of love and stuff and best new year wishes if I don't get to read you before then. Old Baldy

I believe visiting someone's blog is like being in their home. We, as visitors, should respect the house rules. If we don't like it, then we should move on down the road. There are lots of bloggers out there who live for the fight.

Sadly, the only way some people can feel better about themselves is by putting others down. I don;t know what was said or by whom, but if you don't know them I'd say to brush off the dust and forget about them. If you have logs and know how, ban their IP if they become hateful.

I vote with the others, that you remain. Don't let them win. :)

I hope you come back soon. When I first started out, I posted some old photos of myself, in a filmstrip which was a sort of through the years look. I was a homely duckling in a few of those photos. A troll came through my blog and said that I was so ugly my mother threw up right after I was born. I am very sensitive too, but I decided to make light of it. I called my mom and asked her if it was true. She and my Dad laughed their heads off and my Dad said I was ugly, but she didn't vomit. My mom said I was cute. Bottom line is, I replied in a confident and saucy manner, and it hasn't happened since. I don't know what your email said, but I hope you can draw strength from those of us who do really want you to blog.

Darlin', you are definitely a bright spot in MY day . . . I always look forward to visiting you. Take the time you need, but know that your friends will be right here waiting for you to return. If you need to vent or whatever in the meantime, feel free to e-mail me anytime.

Take care of your sweet self!

What everybody else already said.... especially flubberwinkle. Don't let "them" win. We're still here. :D

...and, Old Baldy, you may be posting "anonymously" but when you sign the post "Old Baldy" it's a dead giveaway! ;)

I agree with all those above. I look forward to your posts as I check in here everyday.

I'm sorry someone posted mean things towards you. I've noticed there are some IMMATURE RATS out there who's sole purpose is to get a rise out of writers like you and me.

Just delete them and try (I know it's hard) not to let it bother you. They are saying mean things for the sake of saying mean things.

I hope you come back soon, we'll miss you.

Everyone is right so I don't need to repeat it but I'll miss catching up on what you are thinking and doing too! You are a good person, don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

Been there. Just remember that we love ya, and there will always be those who must hurt others, so that they themselves can feel important.
There was a family who were moving during the land rush in the 1880's. One of the children overheard the townsfolk sniffing and talking, calling those who were moving names. The child asked his mother why?
'Son,' she said, 'have you noticed the dogs which come out and bark at the wagons when we pass through?'
The boy had, indeed.
'Do the wagons stop for the dogs?'
No, the boy noted.
'Then ignore those people. They yap like little dogs, and they won't make us stop by their yapping.'

Hey Windfall.....
Now I'm curious to know what you really look like! So much Brittany...where's the real you???

I haven't read the post that got you down yet - but I will; remember other people who are miserable tend to try to bring good people down with them so they don't feel so miserable...misery loves company you know! If you feed into it - then they win.

Hey, having experienced something like that (I've gotten both hate mail + nasty comments), I understand how you're probably feeling right now. It's ok to take some time off to recuperate, but don't ever let these people get you down, 'cause you're so much more and better than that. ok? You have a lot of us here behind you and rooting for you
