I confess

I love this message board. It's kept me sane and entertained recently. I can't afford any more therapy and I don't like dumping on people I know, and I know what they would say if I did. It's great to be able to get a whole range of opinions from different people, and helps me put my problems in perspective. So give yourselves a big pat on the back!

The confessions are a bit dull don't you think? I'm sure the confessions that don't get past the moderator are much better.

Good on ya

I was actually thinking of writing a post much like this one to thank the confessions community. Good on you for writing this, and a big round of applause for the folks who contribute to the confessions message board!

I agree for the most part, but often some bitter boy will write some nasty replies that don't even have the redeeming quality of being humourous.

If you can get past the bitter comments.
@over. - it's true.

I've written on this page for 6 or 7 years and it sort of substituted FB and social media for me, being allowed to write relatively free of self-censorship. Sometimes when I've been called out, it's made me re examine my viewpoints and check my head a bit

Your last sentence is 1000%.
At OP, go on You Tube: there are hundreds and hundreds of inspirational and meditational channels to watch and listen to.
Like "Program Your Life", "Just Motivation", Greg Braden, etc etc

Couldn’t agree more!!! I’ve written many that don’t get posted and when they do they get the highest comments. I like to write thought provoking messages. Never offensive but intriguing and a lot of them don’t get posted. It’s too bad, really.

You must be hating

Or racists, or planning a crime, or include personal information, something like that to get filtered I'd imagine. As the Great Ice T once said "Freedom Of Speech, just watch what you say."

@hundreds ... of inspirational and meditational channels

Unfortunately they are mostly lead-ins trying to sell us something. The Indigenous way is to never sell 'medicine.' Those who are gifted uplifters must always have another source of legit income. That protects the community from institutionalizing mediocrity and corruption. Of course the laws of reciprocity is part of life, but that is different than 'selling medicine.' ie. if the Medicine Person misses their regular work or goes to the expense of travelling to help you, its good and proper to offer what you can in reciprocity but there is NEVER a price tag put on it! <><><><> OCM Sto:lo salutations

Someone needs something better to do. You're friendless. Put your phone down and go meet someone.
