  • I want to apologise...(again!)

    Dear All,

    I don't really know what to say, because this time I've embarrassed even me. I don't really have any excuses for what I've said, except that I am under a LOT of family stress at the moment (massive falling out with my sister - she can't see why I'm pissed at her, either, but that's irrelevant).

    I'd particularly like to apologise to Kat, who I had a go at purely because she happens to share the same name as my sister (and that was the day I found out what a callous bitch my kid sis really is). Kat, you can't help what your mum called you (and it's not even like it's spelt the same - we're part Scottish and my sister's name is Catriona - the Scots Gaelic form of Catherine, but she's always been known as Cat.)

    Right that's it, FWIW.

    Just hope folk here are still speaking to me.

    Peace

    Sarah xxx
    La tristesse durera toujours...

              Sarah-
              There have been times I've had to not lash out at folks (people named Sarah and Cassie in particular) for a small grievance. Those names happen to be the same as two people who I'm not on particularly good speaking terms with (one screwed over Guy with Woman Problems, and one is a sister who refuses to forgive me for an accident 15 years ago.) I'm generally pretty good about it, but sometimes I don't catch myself. You've (I've) learned so much, but keeping control of that tongue can be a bear. My suggestion is the same thing I do: If I go on a rant or am responding to something I don't like online, I'll type it into a word processor first. If I can't read it as an outsider five minutes later and not get mad at the writer, I don't post it.
              If you can get your tongue under control (not meant as anything other than the bald statement it is, remember, I have the same issue), I think you'd actually get more responses that were helpful, rather than people having you on ignore. Just passing on a lesson I learned the hard way.
              By the way, I do appreciate the apology towards the folks you hurt.
              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                I appreciate your apology, but I think instead of apologizing try to remember this post before you lash out. I know controlling your impulses may be hard with asperger's but seriously give it an honest try. It's bogus for you to apologize if you're just going to do it again and again.

                Also, try to take some of the good advice you're given and don't just abandon your own threads when you're told things you don't want to hear. Taking our advice, or at least making an attempt, is better than any apology.
                I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                  Not that I'm meaning to stick my nose in... but just a thought.

                  An apology is great, but you really take away from it when you make an excuse or try to justify what you're apologizing for.
                  "I'm sorry I kicked your cat, but really I only did it because she got in my way."

                  See how silly, and disingenous that sounds?

                        SV:
                        Just a couple thoughts I wanted to share with you when it seems that you are in a receptive mood
                        1. There are new people that come to this site every day, looking for some answers, looking for a safe place to learn, research, and meet other people with similar questions, experiences, and goals. When you first came on here would you feel safe asking a question if you saw a board riddled with people that lashed out at each other? I certainly would not, and I am a very outspoken person myself.
                        2. And most importantly, since it seems that you have various barriers (likes, dislikes, economical) that prevents you getting to a point in PB that it is beneficial to you, maybe this is not where you should be focusing your time.
                        MAYBE you should be focusing your efforts on the issues that are making you so stressed out that it is causing you to behave poorly.
                        MAYBE you need to set aside your differences with your sister, does it really matter who is right or wrong? If she died tomorrow would
                        there be things you wish you had taken care of.
                        MAYBE you could focus some time on an forum that deals with people who have faulty body image issues
                        MAYBE you could focus some time on someone besides yourself, read to a group of children, or seniors. Give some time and attention to an
                        animal shelter, a homeless shelter, or a senior home.

                        Just some suggestions .........I have MANY more, but there is a small start

                          Seems way too many of you girls have issues keeping things in your mouths. In an unexpected turn of events most males don't have this problem...you'd think it'd be the other way around!
