    emoticon Take what you like & leave the rest. We care about you & are glad you are here. Do what you need to do to take good care of yourself. Really, that is what we are learning to do here.
    How is your de-cluttering going? You've inspired me & my bathroom is done - medicine chest, drawers, cupboards, everything. Thanks for the inspiration. I am very pleased with it.

    At the risk of upsetting you even more, which I sure hope I don't.

    I don't understand what you have to be scared of here at SP. PLEASE try to understand that some members here were/are very worried about your safety. Nothing was done to cause you harm or hurt in any way. At least not on purpose. What was done was done to HELP you. Be thankful people care enough to watch out for you.

    I hope you return and are able to understand how dangerous it can be to give out such specific details of yours and other peoples lives.

    The only way this situation can happen again is if you post specific info again, so just avoid doing that. Your not in trouble! :)

    You have a few choices. 1. leave and stay gone - you will be missed!
    2. return and know that many people care about you & your safety. Just be much more careful about using names, stores, streets, roads, buss's etc.
    3. return and open a new account and start over again - but I'm not sure what that would do to help you. However if it makes you feel better then you can do that.

    I have made mistakes being online at facebook and am thankful someone was there to point them out to me so I could correct them.

    You are blessed to have so many people who DO care about you! :)

    Don't forget that looking for support doesn't mean opening yourself for trouble by offering everyone every bit of information in your life (names, addresses, schedules, etc). You'll get just as much support if you're a little vague by saying things like "my ex" "my sister" "my parents" versus giving the world access to their personal information. Don't forget that giving your whole name and address online can give someone the chance to steal your identity! Then you'd have a lot more to worry about. You may want to look into finding a class for adults about how to safely use the internet. I know they offer classes for teenagers and for seniors about what to post and what not to post online. Those who are telling you to be careful what you're posting are trying to care about you and warn you for your own safety; it's not an attack against you. And having moderators look in on your account is them trying to protect you from all the horrible things that can happen. Your page is accessible by BILLIONS of people; that could potentially include thousands of people who would use the information you post for negative means. The moderators care about your safety and health; they're not trying to hurt you or censor you, just protect you from the people out there who could use the information you provide for nefarious means.

    If you choose to take a break, that's up to you. Re-center yourself and remind yourself how important it is to be healthy, then consider coming back in the new year armed with your positive goals and a plan for achieving them.

    Girl, let it go. You can't stay upset over this. Time to move on and let it go. No reason to kill your winning spirit because you are bothered by someone's comments.

    So stiff upper lip, and all that. Get back to cleaning that flat!!! We are doing that together. and pray for me to win my disability hearing tomorrow!

    Hugs and Love,

    If you don't like someone's remarks, you have the right and the power to delete them. Don't let anyone steal the blessing of all the positive reinforcement you can get on SP.

    EILEEN828 expressed it perfectly.

    You can say what's on your mind without revealing the specific names and places.
    Then you wouldn't need to feel Frightened and Scared.
    And If you are uncomfortable...create a new ID and use more discretion next time.
    Create your own peace of mind.

    You don't need to fear it. Look at it this way . Some one thought they were looking out for you, trying to protect you, because they probably thought you were leaving yourself in a venerable situation by giving too much personal information on a public source. But that certainly doesn't mean you can't speak what's on your mind. No one was trying to tell you to not speak your mind. You are allowed to say how you feel and most people will probably respond to that and try to help you out. Whether they simply agree with you or not, or they may try to offer advice. You're in charge of your page, not them. Sparkpeople may have stepped in to remove personal information, so to avoid that in the future, try not to be so specific about yourself that strangers could figure out how to find you. If you talk specifically about someone else, use first names only. I think if you do that, you should probably be ok and Sparkpeople won't interfere again. Easy, Right? emoticon emoticon

    Wow, I wish I had some idea what was going on with the recent postings. Seems like I am missing something. Tried to read a few blog posts back and see what happened, but can't figure it out. Hope you manage too come back after the holidays and hope whatever happened, it works out and you feel comfortable coming back to spark.

    Let love lead you and not fear. Fear drowns out love, the love of others who care so much for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon
