Cold Front Coming In

Cold Front Coming In

Today has been a change in the weather. A change in the RL weather as well as the SL weather. Oh, you didn’t realize we had weather in SL? We do. It comes with the changing of moods and events in our Second Lives. Recent events have caused me to grow cold to the ways of Second Life. The way people can come and go and do as they please without considering that there are people on the other side of the computer screen. On that note, I took a visit to a winter sim to go with my mood. Hope you enjoy! TOOTLES

Done Gone and Done It

Done Gone and Done It

I received a very disturbing message earlier this evening about a friend who was being harassed by someone on Facebook. A few of my close friends know that I work for a health and wellness company called Plexus. I absolutely LOVE it! It gives me the opportunity to help so many people. This friend who messaged me also works for Plexus and had sold some to a member of a fellow group they were both a part of. This was a mothers group of large families. Needless to say… it got ugly. This person took Plexus for a week and expected crazy results. When she didn’t receive instant results she decided to take to this Facebook group and blast this person all over media and tried to ruin any credibility that she had earned. I was a little beyond mad, because no one ever claimed she would lose weight let alone lose weight in a week. She was only eating 900 calories and mostly only fruit and veggies which are empty calories. Barely any protein. It doesn’t take a genius to realize she wasn’t doing this correctly, but I think there might be a slight eating disorder in there somewhere because after the week of people trying to tell her she can’t do this to herself she didn’t get it and go made and I guess was looking to lash out because she was upset it didn’t work.

Why am I telling you all this? Just like my friend who needed to message me to vent about how she was being treated… I need to vent as well. I obviously can’t vent to this friend, because I feel like me venting to her about how its ridiculous will only fuel her fire to be upset even more. I had to play the calming friend when all I wanted to do was blast this girl for being nuts. Every behavior I had seen has pointed to the crazy house and I had to just vent somewhere. Taking deep breaths wasn’t working. This was all on RL Facebook, so please no one think this is about someone that we all might know lol. I feel better at least! TOOTLES

I Assume It Is Fall

11.3.14.5

 I feel like it is so appropriate at this moment to talk about expectations and assumptions. Everyone has them but not everyone voices them. When we add in social media of any sort, we finally have a place to put these down and say our piece on things. What I guess has been bothering me a lot lately is the constant assumptions by people because they have no idea of a situation. I honestly believe that there are three sides to every story and the facts become nothing but a screwed view of what they believe happened on their end. The assumption that everyone should be completely perfect. It is “ok” for others to make mistakes until it has to do with yourself and then everyone  should just be perfect. The guilty comments start flooding in like the “How could you” one which I have hear people say frequently. I am guilty of this one myself. It is only “ok” for others to make a mistake when you can easily walk away from a situation and have no guilt or shame yourself. The real kicker is when people chime in with their two cents. Every situation is different… every reason is different… how can we possibly give “advice” or comments on a situation that you can’t possibly understand unless you are present yourself? This is something I have struggled with, because its very natural to give an opinion. That is what it is right? Then… if that is true let’s turn the situation around and make the person you’re talking about be your best friend. Then it is a different situation right? You may have the same opinion, but because there are some extra things you now know or you didn’t know then the opinion will come out as some kind of support for the person you care for. The take from? Stop assuming everything and just ask someone or be direct and let us all stop talking about others behind their backs. If you have something to say then just say it! I am going to say that I would rather go shopping at some of these great places than worry about what your assumptions are of me. Shopping therapy at its best! TOOTLES
