Pajodama is under stress.
I’m glad you came back. ((((HC))))
How I did it: Generally I try to never take action out of anger. I try really hard to cool off before I act, but this time I did not. I was angry and I deleted my account. BIG MISTAKE!!! Over the next few days I really missed the friends I had made on 43T over the past 4 years and I missed the daily interaction.
Lessons & tips: When I deleted, all my posts for the past 4 years were deleted as well, never to be recovered. That is sad for me as some of them were reflective of some important moments in my life. All the almost 19,000 cheers that I had given over the past 4 years were deleted as well which adversely impacted people I cared about. My tip would be to NEVER delete. Open a new account if you feel the need to take a break or abandon your old account, but know that the ramifications of deleting are widespread and irreversible.
Resources: I was surprised at how many people actually wanted me to come back. I clearly still have a very different opinion of myself than other people do. This has always been a problem for me; something that I bring forward from my childhood. The friends I have made on 43T were my biggest resource and support. I had only been back 2 or 3 days and I already had climbed to 30 subscribers. The number is still rising as people realize that I have deleted and come back. For someone who continues to struggle with self worth, knowing that so many people actually missed me and honestly wanted me to come back is an awesome affirmation!!! I am grateful for this!
I’m glad you came back. ((((HC))))
heaveemetal Still I want And still I ache But still I wait To see you again
I actually made screenshots of the thread you were attacked in…just to save them for future reference…
you are sofa king funny Heavee!!!
That wastotally me . . . rolling around in agony!!!
Heavee and his animations. I love them, they speak by themselves.
It’s too bad that I don’t have any cheer at this moment but I will come back ;)
You are valued and you make killer sandwiches! and you have that cute dog
Glad you’re back and you make our lives better for being in them!
loveinthecure 2013 - MY YEAR!
and learned my lesson – glad you decided to come back.
very glad you came back! 43T would not be the same without you!
... because I haven’t been here much, but had I found out you were gone I would have been so sad.
I love hearing about your new home and all about the pingos and the adventures in home schooling!!!
SlayneB is back again on 43 things.
She’s back! That is indeed a beautiful thing. The New & Improved HippieChick 2.0, now complete with firewall and anti-malware protection. But still featuring the user-friendly, smart, savvy program we’ve come to love
I know what it’s like to be attacked here, it can be both shocking and hurtful, now I just avoid the meanies, and jut focus on the wonderful folks here, and there are so many of them. I made that a goal here (ah good 43 type habits) and certain threads and people I simply avoid.
You, of course, were not one of them. =)
Luna is taking a break from 43T. She will be back :)
Hey, HippieChick2! I didn’t know you were away, as I myself left for more than a year. So sad that you erased your account —I guess a good quantity of our mutual cheers and cheerbombings were lost. But that doesn’t matter, we’re back here again! :)
We have a good saying in Spanish for this: “Borrón y cuenta nueva” which translates to “Erasure and new account”. Might not make much sense in English, but it is quite fitting in this situation.
Anyway, I’ll have to check out my subscriptions, as I believe I’ll need to resubscribe to you a second time around ;)
JudithKD Requests no links, tweets, or shared content ...thx!
and I’m sorry that things haven’t always been good here.
but I am very glad you came back!
Daphne is giving herself a fresh start!
or I never would have met you here! :)
New Isabella is taking a break from 43T due to technical difficulties...
‘cause it had 43 cheers, but I had to anyways. I’m glad you’re back too.
Almost two years ago (for various reasons), and I lost about two years of posts… I really, really regret losing a lot of the more creative stuff – 43T served as sort of a notebook for me – I used a lot of my 43T posts and expanded them into more complete blog posts or articles or poems.Live and learn, I guess…
DoggerBogger2 What other people think of you is none of your business.
Glad to hear it!
Before DoggerBogger2 there was DoggerBogger.
I’m glad I’m back too!
Happy 43Things -ing to you!!!
