Well, it's been over a year since I last posted on the MS discussion boards... I decided to give it a break, because, well, at one point I went on a bit of a rant. And as a writer, my rants can end up looking like personal essays... but much, much more emotional in nature. I felt like maybe I came close to being a troll, although, I hadn't targeted people, or attempted to push buttons. I suppose I was feeling triggered, and I was venting. Some times I just get caught up in what I'm writing... and I use to not know when to stop. I guess what I'm saying is that I was a little embarrassed after the fact.

Anyway, I've decided to reintroduce myself, in the hopes that I can have a fresh start. I promise, if my caps-lock finger is itching again, I'll set up a word press blog, and unleash my verbosity in a more appropriate forum.

I look forward to talking to you all, and getting to know you. Cheers.

hey big
I make it policy for me to not look back to what happened here before my time. we have enough to feel shame and pain over. I hope that instead we can find healing and maybe even a few laughs. there is always hope man. mean time you are as welcome as can be hope that things go GREAT

Hey BigV,

I am sorry for your reason to be here, but glad that you had found us, and chose to return.

To echo Jeff's sentiment, I too find presence in the moment as a way to mitigate my past failings or issues. All we have is now, our past didn't happen in the past, it happened in the now, as will our future.

I am glad you can see where you may have preferred to react differently, but you can do that now, so that is very positive.

No need to beat yourself up, for now is what matters. How we think about things can also have an impact our feelings about those things. Perhaps ranting is just what you needed at the time. A way to express your fear, pain, rage.
It is as it is.

Welcome back
