I just posted a comment on another blog. People don't listen to other people - what they are saying, how they feel. Everyone does have a right to their own feelings...we don't know what people have been through. I try not to tell people they are wrong they way the feel, what they have been through has formed them. I don't like that people try to tell me how I should feel...and I do believe you shouldn't force people to be a certain way. Now I relaize it works both ways - there is a line in the sand you say -"do not cross" and even that is different for most people---so it's difficult. But we should all try to respect eachother and not be mean. This reply was in response to a post by a blogger who had posted on a forum and got shot down:
"don't be suprised at what anyone does or says in any blog or forum. People have strong opinions...I know I do. I respect people for sticking to what they believe but I despise how people manipulate other people to try to make them believe something that isn't true. You have your feelings and you have a right to them...because of your life, your circumstances...be bold and say how you feel - regardless of what anyone says. That is who you are. I am all for reform (as long as people don't go overboard--don't throw the baby out with the bathwater). But, there will always be adoption because there will always be people who cannot care for their children mentally, physically or monitarily. It's a sad fact - in a perfect world everyone would have children and be able to care for them. This is not a perfect world and we have to live here the best we can. People also have to learn to live with the decisions they make, good or bad."I really think people need to take a step back and see how what they say and do affects others. They are caught up in their own circumbstances and cannot see the forest through the trees.
