I have decided to give LiveJournal another chance after a time away. I have made great friendships through this site and I have met some of the most wonderful people. However, I have also had bitter encounters: two during this year, after almost eight years of peaceful journaling. I don't have anything against them, and I'm open to make up our differences, but the problems which emerged between us in both cases had to do with me talking about my feelings and speaking up my mind for a treatment I didn't consider right. I'm really sorry to realize that letting them know their words hurt me was seen as an insult, but I'm glad I now have experiences to recall and make me strong.
Truth is, I'm going through a very hard period of my life, and though I believe I don't entirely deserve it, my good friends of years, in the other hand, have been very supportive and loving to me. That's what I'm seeking for in a friend, since that's what I want to give back. For me, what makes LJ so special is that you can feel someone is there reading and understanding, while you get to know the people who reads about your life and build real friendships, share fun and sad anecdotes, get excited or worried for the other.
If you share some of these thoughts and would like to be friends with me, drop me a comment and tell me something about you. But if you don't... please do not add me. Having only understanding and empathetic friends close is an important matter to me now, since not everything in my life is going well. If you just add me for any other reason and don't talk to me first, sorry but I won't add you back. It doesn't matter how similar or different we are, I love to meet people from all over the world with all kinds of tastes and personalities.
Have a good day and see you around! ♥
