Hear, hear! Thanks for the perspective, Kathleen!!
I'd like to respond to the negative post about Deirdre, Not to put the poster down, but in response to Deirdre. I do mention God and Christ on this forum, but Deirdre or anyone else has never put me down for my postings. She has made me laugh and inspires me with her words at times as others do on here as well. As Kathleen has mentioned a lot of women start out on this forum with a lot of just anger for how they have been treated by their husbands and ex's and many need to vent because here is a much better place than to do it in front of our children or elsewhere. After healing I am finding my peace now, but at the start, I also vented on this forum as well. I think God gave us feelings and anger is one of them so he understands when we seek out a place where we feel free to vent or even speak of him without judgement. We might sometimes misread others postings as well. Each person expresses hurt and pain in different ways and I found in divorce I had so many feelings and issues that I did not know whether I was coming or going when it all began. I expressed them in prayer, but being human I also felt I needed to express them to others that understood as well. I think there are wonderful caring women on this forum who understand and with all the raw feelings of divorce I feel it is nice to have a SAFE PLACE to get things out without judgement. I also think humor is good to ease our anger...thank you Deirdre for making me smile at times.
Thanks, Susan. You are so right. All these women on here have been so helpful to me. Whether I am just reading their posts, or they are responding to mine. I consider all of them just dear friends I have not been lucky enough to meet in real life. And to have a place to say whatever and not be judged for it is important to us all.
Deirdre, I always look forward to your posts. So many times they can make me smile when I really need it.
