    Just reading stuff around and im getting wound up, but i know if i post my thoughts on it, i know from reading other responses i'd be hung up [by the testicals if i was a bloke]


    and tbh its gets to me that i feel afraid to voice my opinion because of the response i'd get from other people on thier high horses.



    Thats where i'll leave it, cheers!

    No way !!!!

    Give 'em hell, Harry.

    That's my motto.


    Don't let others have the power over you to decide when you speak. That's when you should shout the loudest...

    Never, ever, ever feel that way.

    Tell 'em their opinion matters squat and mean it.


    Who cares what others think? Bullies are just those who haven't the ability to make themselves happy without trying to belittle others to make themselves feel better..(about themselves)


    Take that to heart...its true. ;)

    You should :) I like your posts. I sometimes post something and leave it for a day, then check back to see if there's been a backlash :D And more often than not there isn't. It bugs me if I don't post and feel strongly about it and it also bugs me if someone is really confrontational about something I've posted. All seems insignificant if I read the replies a day later. And if I can't get my point across because there's a bit of a 'Ferrous Cranus' knocking about (Ferrous Cranus), then I just abandon the thread completely to save my sanity.

    Now see?

    you said being made to feel that way...

    screw them....whoever they are. Turn it back on em...even if in your own place and without wasting the energy type it out.


    Just give 'em a big ol [​IMG]

    Try it some time...its empowering.


    :D
