do you ever get discouraged about your own situations?

when you see the heartless responses on here something do you get discouraged? Do you ever feel inadequate after reading some moms answers? Why do some mom feel they need to bash instead of uplift and help educate?

  • It's possible that they are unhappy in their own lives and don't feel up to encouraging others. Not malicious, just unhappy.

  • Some people are supportive and some are only concerned with what's important to them. I think it's important to surround yourself with people who are helpful and supportive.

  • I don't know why some feel the need to bash. I will always try to give a positive answer. I enjoy CM. It gives me a chance to talk to other moms or give and get advice. I don't know what other people are going through. Maybe with all this bad economy, people just need to vent. I don't have an answer to this question.

  • Exactly. I'm sick of explaining why I have food stamps, or WIC, or why I can't breastfeed, why I don't work.....etc etc etc. Now I just go to the next Q or tell them to shut the F* up. They don't know me. I don't have to explain anything to anyone.
