Is there value and worth in all of our stories, opinions and perspectives? I think the answer is an emphatic YES. It is nice to have a platform and a voice, like a blog to share what you consider important information. Thinking your solution is the only solution is dangerous territory. NONE of our journey’s are cookie cutter scenario’s that can be solved by solution A , B or C. There is even value in hearing information that goes against everything one might believe in. Roasting a person or ripping someone a new one, is unkind and unproductive. I have gotten mad, upset and on occasion furious at a comment left but I do not consider them my finer moments.
What I love and appreciate about this particular blogging community is their acceptance of my voice at all stages of my journey. When I was stupid, naive and an idiot you were all there, and I was never afraid to post my feelings or views on situations. Now that I can cross naive off that list, you are still all there! :o) I would be devastated if our blogs became a place of intimidation or berating of each other. Have a voice but please let us not turn our blogs into a place to point fingers and call each other names.
I respect all of you and your opinions, and believe that we are all on a similar but separate journey in the world of addiction. I find value in comments even when I don’t necessarily agree. Please be kind.
