  1. I think that people have different needs and wants and different feelings about relationships and attraction. I had a conversation with someone recently about how baffling it is to me that some people can find another person attractive at first glance. It doesn't work that way for me? I need to spend time with that person, get to know and recognize them and then they may, little by little, become more attractive to me. They were equally baffled by my experience as I was by theirs. I think we can learn from one another through open conversion and supportive listening.
  2. I'm trying to consider all members' feelings and responses. Different people may be offended by different things. From my personal perspective, there is a connection that I think may be better to not suggest or imply, even if society might. I feel uncomfortable with the suggestion of causation. I'm sorry that Small was upset by the post. It's good that members are being respectful with the discussion, though.
  3. I can understand how that comment would be offensive. I hope we can all be supportive of one another.
  4. Welcome to the community, Captnemo. Have you ever experienced food or other types of aversions before? I have a daughter who has had a lifelong struggle with eating, but her problems are mainly due to sensory sensitivities. Do food textures bother you? How are you feeling otherwise? I hope your doctor is supportive and helpful.
  5. I have wondered about this as well. We can certainly do better.. I still have that hope anyway. Klingsor, wishing you and everyone here peace.
  6. ND, it's been a long time... I remember you well. It's good to hear from you. I'm sorry you continue to be in so much pain. 😢
  7. Hello MDeCa. I think I recall you sharing about Ben here in the past. Is it possible that your younger self needed some way to survive and cope with a traumatic experience and this then led to Ben? I think we all have different aspects or parts of ourselves and it can be challenging to accept and care for all parts. Sometimes the wounded and deeply hurt parts can be especially difficult to manage, especially if one part seems to hurt other parts.Therapy can be helpful and healing. Best wishes.
  8. I hear your anger. Bullying is a serious problem in our society, I feel, and there doesn't seem to be enough emphasis on it. I'm sorry no one stepped up for you, intervened or offered you support when you needed it most. 😟 I can't imagine what that must have been like for you.
  9. Welcome, Strelitzia. I like your bird of paradise avatar.🙂 It's great that you're working on self care. I feel this is so important to our mental health and well being. Life can be challenging. I look forward to learning more about you. I also hope you find the support you need here in our community. Healing wishes.

    Happy 2019

    Happy 2019! Best wishes.
  11. I haven't seen any of those movies, but I know I would be skipping Halloween, lol. I saw the first Halloween many years ago- it was my first and last time watching a horror movie. Is Gotham a Batman movie? I prefer the movie theatre to watching films at home, but I rarely get out to see one. More often than not if I do, we go to see family films.
  12. Merry Christmas to you, Dave!
  13. Best wishes this holiday season, @retr0john. It's good to hear from you. Peace. 🎄🎅
  14. Hi Small. Good to hear from you! Things have been very busy for me with work and family. We are looking for a new place to live with more land. I hope the holidays bring you some moments of peace. 🎄
