NEGATIVITY ON SPARKPEOPLE?

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

OMGOODNESS!!!!!!! I have never read so many negative and almost hateful sparkpages and blogs in all my life on SP as I have read today. I never knew there were so many people that did not want our encouragement or our friendship on here. I will be more careful from now on to make sure that I don't try to encourage anyone that doesn't want it or add anyone as a friend that doesn't want my friendship. For those of you who appreciate the encouragement and friendship as much as I do I will try to do by best for you and myself.

    Negativity is the natural tendency of man. I am sorry you have encountered so much today. I guess I didn't realize there was much of it here on SP. It is sad for them. I am surrounded by negativity in my household so much of the time that being here on SP has been an uplifting thing for me and gives me the courage to keep trying. Keep up the encouragement because I for one appreciate it immensly.

    Sorry it has been so tough. This is always a difficult time of year for many. We don't get to choose our circumstances, but, thankfully we do get to choose our responses. I hope more and more of us will choose joy! emoticon

    I did get that once when I tried to make this lady feel better after I read her blog about being sick. That got my heart pumping and ever since I"m careful as too whose blog I comment on. But hey we're all her for the same purpose I don't see the point of the negativity. Anyways keep sparking!!!!

    I have been doing a what are you thankful thread on some of my teams for the last 27 days now and it is truly incredible what so few are thankful for anything. Granted I am not always positive, but having team members send me private messages saying something negative against my positive stuff

    Perhaps it is the time of the year with a lot of people going into their winter /seasonal depressions might have a lot to do with their negatively

    I haven't seen much of that in the blogs and Sparkpages I visit, but I see a lot of it in the message boards, and people just being rude to each other there.

    wowee..sorry about those negative people..there are just those who have to know everything and you had better believe it too lol..i have been here at spark for over six years now i lost 273 pounds (378 to 105) and have continued to maintain it for four years..and i can tell you i don't know it all but i can tell you what works for me..everyone chooses their own path and i have met those negative people and they 'start' things because they need the attention i think and there are a few when i see them on the message boards i just don't go there..you have to realize i have been here a long time and i hardly kknow anything but i am here daily (well i missed a few but those were days in the hospital with no access) i come here daily to be 'fed' with all the motivation and inspiration i can find..so it is helpful for me..when you find thes people just disengage yourself from them..give them a chance once because some people hardly realize they are that way..they have been some that have turned the corner for sure and it took hard work for them to do that
    anyway i'm glad you brought that subject up for sure and may you be blessed..i see you are a tennessee girl?? metoo nashville

    Wow! I have not encountered that myself. Are you a member of the Mean Team (jk)? I try not to whine and pout on my blogs. I try not to do it in real life either.

    Wow! I am glad I did not find those blogs. Their loss since that is what this site is about, but sometimes people have been hurt betrayed by others,,, it may take them awhile to see that we are not like that..
    so sad though, isn't it?

    I think negative people who refuse support aren't going to have the chance to be as successful as people who are trying and ask for help.
