4METOWIN - You have not been here long enough to figure out things. You are still on the honeymoon phase.

I have been here 2 months now.

I have learned to delete immediately certain people that I find always want to be controversial. I don't.

I have learned to delete immediately the people that are confessing a binge - I don't need to hear about their slips and how bad they were.

Sorry, but I delete the new people. They have team leaders to welcome them. I don't have the time.

I then read the rest. I respond to the ones I feel a connection to. I try not to fly off the mouth and respond too quickly - that,s the same as emotional eating. WAIT A WHILE. THINK OF ALTERNATE SOLUTIONS. GO FOR A WALK. LET THE ANGER CALM DOWN. CALL A FRIEND. YOU DON'T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE ANGRY ABOUT - JUST TALK UNTIL THE ANGER GOES AWAY.

Sorry - did not realize I was writing in caps.

Take care of yourself. Stick around. Nobody will even remember you said goodbye. Old news is forgotten.

Judy

Sorry to see you go... I'm quite sad that you are so upset by the mail which was probably sent out by Steve050... his intentions were good... he apologised... i felt "stronger" after his mail... (sometimes i need a rude awakening)...
the days that other people could determine my moods or as to if i decide to stay or go are over...
I hope that you are not leaving Spark and that you change your settings for the other teams you chose to belong to...
Good luck on your journey.

spam type emails are not supposed to be allowed on spark people! plain and simple fact!

However I also agree with many others who remind any of us who read here that we all have a choice.....we can choose what we read or dont read! We can choose to react positively or negatively and we can choose to stick to our plans or let lifes challenges bring us down and make us give up! We are all here to access support and hopefully lose weight once and for all! Some of us crave the supportive nature of similar minded people and some of us need that little kick in the butt to make us stop using excuses but ultimately most of the people here mean well and dont actually set out to offend others! Its all in how we choose to take it that affects that end result!

Stay positive everyone and just keep working on being the best people that you can be!

Hugs and blessings Tina

Please reconsider your decison and write an e-mail to that person explaining how her e-mails are offending you. By running away you aren't accomplishing anything, but losing the support of others who want to comfort you.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

I too am sorry to see you go. Best of luck. I reported STeveo as inappropriate to spark - I have also blocked him, telling him I was not interested in what ever he was selling.

Best to you - no judgement from me.

Always be kinder than necessary. Everyone you know, everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

I agree with Anna. We are are free to choose how we will respond in any given situation. We can choose to be a "victim" or we can choose to be a victor!! It's your choice. I have stayed out of the controversy and watched from the sidelines. I REFUSE TO ALLOW anyone control my emotions or feelings. I am the champion of my own soul, no matter what anyone else thinks or feels.

When you quit or give in to what you perceive as negative feedback you are giving them control and allowing the situation to control you. Your perception is your reality! Don't waste your energy being upset over this. If any of it applies, then apply it. If none of the feedback is pertinent then drop it and move on! There may be something to be learned and there may not...but true honest sharing with sincere intentions is my perception. Misunderstandings do come and will continue from time to time -

I agree though with Anna - by posting, you are saying "hey lookie here at me - I've been hurt and I need a shoulder to cry on"...well, you've come to the right place...we are here to listen and allow you to vent.

But, once you are done venting, what are YOU going to do for YOU? We can't do it for you. If by someone offending you - you now have a reason to quit or give up on yourself...then so be it. It is only when you recognize your worth as a human being (all offenses aside) and you begin to love yourself regardless of what anyone else thinks..THEN, my dear maam' you are achieving victory!!

I'm confident that you haven't left us yet, and will read all these posts to yours...just know that you will be in my prayers and that I will ask God to reveal some things to you in the spirit that will help you to get past this "wrong" you've suffered.

I am sorry, but I must say that if you say that you are not sorry and that you do not want apologies, then why even start a thread called Leaving EE? Obviously you are craving some sort of attention. I feel badly that you are so upset that you cannot stay in a team and you cannot fix your settings in order for you to not receive all of those emails, but you may have snapped because of the stress of this and now you are giving up. This is completely up to you and I understand, but please do not come here and think that you will not get a response or reaction because no one starts a thread like that expecting others to not react or respond. Take care and all the best!

I am sorry. I am an emotional eater and I do NOT need to be stressed by my teams.

This team is allowing a member of it to do mass emails to EVERYONE on the team and talk about a subject that is not important to most of us. The topic this person posts to only has 45 responses.

I am leaving this team because of this program of stress and unnecessary spam. I do not apologize, I do not ask for understanding, I am just leaving.
