I may think that the situation you are in could have possibly been avoided if you made better choices.  But at the point when you are down....that is irrelevant.  At that point...what you need is support.  Someone to say that they are willing to listen with open ears and an open heart.  This is my promise to whoever needs it.  Who is with me??

Being 100% honest. I cant always do that, i cant always be 100% supportive, no matter the situation, to anyone who needs it. Example, there is a member who posts regularly about her life, and this person, in my opinion, is just plain evil. When she comes crying to cm about it, there is no way i can give 2 S***s about the situation she is in, because she asked for it. Now with friends and family, that is a different story.

I am referring to....  I will not go in and be malicious or mean when someone is already feeling down...  And if I don't have anything nice to say...I just won't comment.  Because...yes there are people who constantly on here and complaining but don't want to seem to want to accept any advice..  I have stayed away from those.  But someone who just wants to vent...  I can say a few kind words too.

Im not really a mean person, and dont go in to be mean to people. =) For the most part, on general vent posts, even when they brought it upon themselves, i can either say something nice, or just leave quietly.

There is a difference in being flat out rude & in being honest about a situation. Some people going down the path of failure & make the same mistakes over & over again. Sometimes people being honest & pointing out the issue & how to correct it is meant as help but taken as an insult.
