    I see

    factions and I dont understand it either. There are some messy people on this site who get the drama mongers stirred up and they know it. It is sad because one person could end it but they dont. I'll be spending a lot more time in 2010 making a difference in the community the thing I liked about being here and still do but some folks are making it hard..for no reason other than..they can.

    LindaChavis,

    Do you think/believe that resurrecting threads that hadn't been posted in for
    months, if not years, add to the percieved problem..in your opinion?

    Somewhat

    but some of the old threads are good. It's the "INTENT" on the "WHY" those old threads are resurrected.

    Negativity is a part of this existence just as positivity. It's not really about focusing and staying away from negativity as it is about understanding its role conveying important messages and what message it is really trying to tell us.

    Many times, we get so wrapped up in the rightfulness of our mission and purpose than we fail to see the flaws we impart into it - thus - at times negativity we encounter is like the wake up call for us to self-evaluate what's really going on and not fall for the illusions we create with our zealousness.

    As 2010 approaches, I encourage everyone to look globally at things, see the greys, as opposed to seeing everything bi-chromatic, in blacks and whites.

    I think it's like talking to yourself.. especially if the person is no longer active
    on the site.. I'm new but I see what's going on.. I recognize it from down in
    my bones.. their are some folks on here that are hell bent on division and
    conflict.. hell bent.. and even if you're not in the fight, it has an effect on you.
    it presses you down a bit..
