  • Everyone has their own opinions, some were just not blessed with the gift of diplomacy and their parents never taught them manners.
    I promise you, there really are a lot of great women here, but there are also a lot of trolls and mean girls, just like high school...

  • Everyone does have their own opinions and I think there are some that just believe so strongly there's is the right one that they will argue or get upset or pass judgement. Some people don't attempt to see things from both sides. I'm one of the people that use my personal experience thinking that might be helpful, because I only what worked for me in my own experience.

    To be honest I'm highly surprised that I haven't been attacked more, given some of the things I have done. I'm very open with a lot of things in my life, and tend to use those as learning experiences. I've left my children, I've cheated on my husband and many more things, not one person has ever attacked me for those actions.

  • That's the way this site is. I'm at the point where I'm thinking of cancelling my account and going elsewhere.

  • It's a public forum. Mostly based upon personal experiences and opinions. A lot of us try to help but there are some who get vehement when someone doesn't agree with them.

    If you want Facts, you need to talk to a certified professional. Here, you will need to weed thru those trying to make a point.
