I would have to say that I agree with you about the 3 sides to every story.
I believe that the people here are real and not merely virtual that can be painlessly deleted at any time. I also believe that the people here have feelings and emotions, and at times have moments of anxiety and possibly occasional bouts of depression. Everyone here is struggling, sometimes a little and sometimes a lot in their spiritual walk with the Lord. I also believe that most people here genuinely care for each other and offer counsel, prayer, and encouragement with good intentions.
In other words, what this site has taught me is that the people here are really just like me. Each one of us has a story to tell and I have tried to tell mine over a period of months and years since I have been a member of this site and appreciate the candor and honesty in those members that have allowed themselves to become vulnerable so that others can see who they really are and what they are about.
I have learned that this place is just like other places, full of wonderful and dynamic ppl, with a bunch of opinions. However, some here, like everywhere else, are unkind, unforgiving and prideful. I have learned thinking the very best of ppl is good, but sometimes it has proven delusional, lol.
Ppl can be hard on each other and themselves, but there is priceless loyalty here that can be really touching to witness.
I have learned that like everywhere else, there are some more different than others, that everyone is doing their best to do their best, even if it doesn't always appear as such. I have learned that sometimes the nicest of ppl are sometimes not so nice.
I have learned that I enjoy being here, probably too much. I have learned that loving ppl where they are is something we all struggle with sometimes. However, in spite of that, I have learned that this place is full of many lovable, funny, creative and oh so interesting ppl.
I thank my Lord for this place and for the family in Christ here.
I have learned through the years of being here off and on that my own experiences and thoughts and opinions have changed at times. It’s fun to see what the younger me thought about certain topics. Some are the exact same today and others are not.
I have learned that people have strong opinions and we don’t always agree, but behind those opinions are real people. People with an endless variety of backgrounds. We are to love them and sometimes loving them means not reacting.
I have learned that God uses the least expected things to teach us and “grow us”.
