It’s been a funny old two weeks. I’m intentionally not posting much. But every cloud has a silver lining. I’ve had time for a bit of introspection, and for a couple of reasons, it won’t hurt me to leave the forums for a while, as from now. I’ll respond to PMs in the immediate future but no more posts.
First, I’m grateful for a friendly PM, where a new member asked my advice, and told me that she was getting no traction when she posted a question , and that her post soon found its way to the badlands – i.e. page 2, 3, … And in answering that “these things happen”, I realised that I’d been contributing to this situation. I’ve been posting and answering far too often, crowding the board and crowding out newer members and others who have only a limited time to spend here. Sorry.
Second, I came for the obvious reason, and have learnt a lot from you all. Still a work in progress but cdh has worked its wonders. . I’ve met some lovely and helpful women but right now I’m having a crisis of confidence sometimes as in ‘who’ I am actually interacting with here? So I’m backing off . Don’t worry, I won’t be going to a bad place. I’m lucky to have good friends in real life who now cope with a new me to varying degrees – so that’s fine.
My annual membership renewal is coming up quite soon. I’m still unsure whether to keep a basic membership, so I can access the articles section and the responses. I’m concerned that would give me access to the forums and be too much temptation! But it might also be the easiest way of staying in touch with friends I might otherwise lose. We’ll see.
All that’s left to say is thanks to all, and I wish you a happy future, full of love and acceptance.
