A Concern:


Odd to say for a "Help" site, but what we have here is a group of people that don't actually like to talk to one another and in no way trust each other.

It's in the reading.

But why do you say we don’t like talking to eachother and don’t trust eachother? This is the only place I feel I can go when I need a community

But everyone is for themselves here. Quick to cut one another to the cord.

I actually love helping people here. I guess selfishly it distracts me from my own problems, but I do like helping

I am not calling any one person out in this post. But it is food for thought. As a help site, we (me included) can do much better.

You’re right, unfortunately I think most people in the world are in it for themselves

Yes, we are each to protect our home/world. Thing is, what is going on here is more self preservation then actually creating/helping our community. It's as if every person is a threat.

Wishful thinking does not make it real. It is up to each of us to understand what is and what isn't.

a penny for thought.. i think we presume to accept that humor cures our spiritual ailments, when in fact in my very humble opinion it only lasts for so long. .. Fern is right .. we're a help site.. we should be more concerned and have more heart to heart than joke to joke.

Hmmm....
Yet, insistence doesn't make it any more real than "wishful thinking," (or so, I would think.)

A vast majority who are here are from the original Help. We all know each other (and have for many years).

I think there is a mix of happy and sad, humor and frankness - sometimes a jab in the ribs and the wink of an eye....

.....It's been a while since you've replied here at Help, (nearly 6.5 months).

Has everything been going okay in your neck of the woods?

What we've got here are mostly lonely socially awkward people attempting reach out. If there is mistrust, it's because we've all been disappointed before.

Sometimes help hurts. Most times actually. It's a dirty business but someone has to tell you to get your ****shit together, whether that means losing 40 pounds or getting off the dope or just to keep your legs together every once in a while. Yeah I'm talking to you soco... lol
