Small Circle With A Big Heart

I love my EP friends.

They have helped me tremendously.

From planning a wedding (no easy task in 35 days), a few dinner parties, helping me and my husband through the death of his father, we have been blessed.

I recently received the best answer to a question someone posted.  I went to their whiteboard to thank them and saw the following status.

GIRLS want attention, WOMEN want respect.

I asked if I could repost her status and share it with others.  AriesPam said yes. (thank you)

I reposted the status and sent private messages to all of those in my small friendship circle (men included) to join with me in posting a status that I hope will bring awareness and respect to women on EP.

I see a lot of negativity.  Not just on EP but in life in general.  It is the nature of my job.  I work hard to keep myself positive in the light of such negativity (pain and suffering).

I know that bad news always travels faster than good news. It is my hope that the good post will travel as fast or faster than a negative one and make people stop and think before they post something negative as a comment or a story. 

Your feelings and experiences are yours but I think if people were more aware of how their comments affect others, they would be more likely to weigh their words more carefully.

By the time I finished sending messages to my small circle, I had already seen its positive affects.

Thank you to my circle and those not in it who have chosen to repost the status.

Positive behavior does make a difference in our outlook on life.

I am proud to be your husband and happy to be your circle.

Positive behavior comes from positive thinking and good self esteem. You are so right on the issue of respect for women and men as well. But when you are disrespected, you are within your rights to not let it go unchallenged.

i enjoyed reading Your post WildspectrumArts, i am not in Your circle although i agree with many things i have read from You and i have respect for You as a Doctor and also for You as a private individual. we all deserve respect in this world and some just are too thick headed to understand others deserve their privacy and respect of their values, ideas, and most of all respect for them as a wonderful human being sharing this earth. Thank You and You have more that earned the RESPECT that You deserve to be given.

It is no wonder that the King worships you, lovely healer. I know the pain of which you speak. It is heartbreaking and wounds the healing soul. I reposted your status. The request is simple to post. It is the thought associated with it that causes one to reflect. I hope it blasts the world. But in a nice way. Like a tiny stream trickles and increases in depth and breath and power from the top of the mountains, coursing down, winding and weaving, to the valleys and out to the oceans. This message will travel like this because of you...Thank you....Thank your King as well....

I am thankful to AriesPam. If she hadn't picked my answer as best answer to her question, I would have never seen it posted in her status. She was kind in giving permission to repost it. EP has some wonderful people. King is very dear to me.

As he should be...

Not in your circle, but I admire your attitude you demonstrate and the words that you share.

Thank you WildeOscar. The wonderful thing is seeing people who are not in my circle posting the status. People seem to gravitate to the negative (posting horrible events on YouTube and Facebook). It is nice and rare when people go to for the positive.

This is a lovely idea Wilde. I think this positive message will surely inspire those who see it. Kudos for thinking of such a wonderful idea. :)

I saw the status quote today but from a different member; it was my friend "liquid gold" maybe I should do the same, and repost it

Liquidgold is a friend in my circle. I sent her a message asking her to repost the status. I'm glad she did. Positive messages are nice to see.

We love you too.
