I love the fact that there’s such diversity here…of lives and beliefs, etc. I think it’s wonderful to have a place to come where the community is made up of people who don’t all think and believe alike. We have our artistic outlets in common for one thing…the fact that we write poetry or prose, or take photographs, as well as the fact that we’re all walking through this life together and are connected.
It seems that in the 3D world, that doesn’t happen as often. People tend to be sifted into cliques…whether they’re based on politics or religion, or cultures. But here, we can find some common ground and merge together and become real, true friends who care about each other.
I have noticed that sometimes I’ll say something in a post, or a poem, and then after posting it I’ll notice it seems to be argumentative with someone else on some point. I never mean to step on anyone. More than once, that has happened without me seeing the other post until after I posted my own. I assume that the opposite happens sometimes too. I’ve seen things that seem to argue with something I’ve said, but they’re often probably coming from the same place, and the same lack of awareness even of my posted thoughts/beliefs.
I love though, that we are safe here to honestly speak what we think/believe, without fear of condemnation or censoring. And I’m thankful for all of you here…truly.
