Olive Branch/karma

I posted this on another group and thought I'd stand in solidarity with BLL on her I'm a Lover, Not a Fighter" story.

The last few days here on EP have been filled with vicious, ugly attacks.  Some unprovoked.  Friends defending friends.  Which I will applaud to my last day.  That's what friends do. 

And, although, I was hurt and my heart broken by the vexatious insults, I am a firm believer in Karma.  And for the sake of my inner peace, I am offering an olive branch to everyone that was hurt in the drama this past weekend. 

We don't have to be "friends", but all the drama is getting out of hand.  Everyone is dealing with issues of their own.  And, no one but that person, knows what it's like to be that person.  No one knows what I'm going through.  No one knows what you're going through. 

I use EP as a support system.  As a sounding board.  A place to play and laugh and share my experiences.  And if I can help one person through something, that makes me a happy girl. 

So, again, after all the hurt that was suffered, all the tears I cried, I am offering an olive branch, an offer of peace for everyone hurt this weekend.  Actually, I am offering an olive branch to everyone.  Whether they were hurt or not. 

The world is ugly enough.  I think it's time for a little peace.

Amen. Ugly is as ugly does, and ain't not a one of us so very pretty all the time. We cry because we have tears, that's what they were made for. Love is kinda funny isn't it. :) peace will prevail in the end with Love and all good things.

I know you accepted and I thanked you and apologized also. Thank you for posting here, though. <br />

Olive branches should be offered at all times. The world is painful enough.

Angel, you are an inspiration. I look up to you and will always consider you a member of my family. *HUGS*<br><br />

Marji, there might not be any "loud" drama, but there are certain people who won't let it go. Posting little jabs at people. Plus, I, too, was standing up for my friends. <br><br />

But, I can't help if you don't accept this. That's just the way it is. Thank you for your comment.

Thank you all of you. I just wanted all the drama to end. I'm not here to fight. I use EP as a kind of therapy almost. A place to get advice and to help others and a place where I get to write.

BRAVA, CK. That was a mess. I noticed the story name in Circle Activity and wanted to see what it was about. I came along into all the disgusting lashing out by the Nameless One who quit that night, deleting all her comments first. Ugly, hateful, and sad! So unjustified and awful, it was the web version of driving by an accident and being compelled to look. The next day, I was surprised to see how far it went.<br />

You are incredible to me for holding your ground in such a filthy tide. This is a great entry and I send you much love and many hugs. I firmly believe in karma so that's really all there is to say.
