When I found Daily Strength I was thrilled. It felt like a place where I could reach out to others, share my experiences either in posts or in my journal. It is still the first place I go to on the web everyday. But I have to say that of all the communities that I belong to on DS, this is the one that feels the most negative. I am reconcidering my membership to the depression community because it makes me feel depressed when I read some of the posts that have gone on lately. None of us are perfect so we really don't have a right to jump all over someone else for any reason. It's not what we say that matters, it is how we say it. If well said, it will be well heard. In this community I feel that there is a lot of talking going on and very little listening by the membership. At the risk of sounding rude or offencive, I feel attacked everytime someone on this community is attacked. I feel pain when another feels pain. Please, please think of what you are saying before posting. We hurt more people with negativity than it's worth.
