MarieBrown76's Journal, 23 February 2018

I guess positive comments aren't welcomed by some because they can only say you're wrong for what you say. So, nothing against the person I recently tried to help with a positive comment but I removed mine because another person who happens to think differently made a rude and judgemental comment against people like me who try to encourage others in a different way than they do. Their comment in my opinion was more negative than positive but so be it. God bless those who truly are doing their best not only on their journey but to encourage others on their journey along the way.

I am so sorry that you had a bad experience. I know how that can be, but just know that there are a lot of us who appreciate the positive comments. I prefer to have someone be positive about the things that I am doing than to tear me down for what they think I should be doing, if that makes sense.

Thank you 🚺. I just thank God for people like you. We get negative feedback enough out in the world we shouldn't have to deal with it here as well. We all make choices we regret later but that doesn't define who we are and tomorrow is another day for us to face and make better choices

WHO CARES WHAT THEY THINK OR SAY!!! F-Them!!!! You be you! Deleting your positive message isn't the way to go because there are people just like you who need to hear what you have to say. You are entitled to your opinion and not everyone is going to agree with you. That's not your problem. Ignore them. And the next time someone attacks you negativity, send me a message and I will gladly tell that person to F-off for you on your behalf. =)

Where was that? In the forums? I read the front page (here) all the time and I missed it.

This is my first comment here - my first moment on this website. Gotta say it's a bit disheartening to read the original comment about removing a positive comment. IMHO (which as a newbie isn't worth too much) NEVER give into negative feedback. Keep up the positive comments. Keep encouraging. Don't let the naysayers get you down. The rest of us rely on the positive, understanding, kindness and encouragement of others.

I saw what your referring to Marie, I shook my head in disgust. I was on medication and not feeling well at the time so I apologize for not defending you. The member is on a short journey here, the other members won't tolerate the rude behavior. Please don't take what is posted on Fat Secret personally, there are bullys, know it all in all walks of life. The comments posted here are not fact, merely anothers thought or ideas. We should all respect anothers views, posts or diets. If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all! Have a great day Marie

@susanlinn plocher: regardless to how long you have been on this site or not - your opinion is just as important as everyone elses. I value what you had to say and I thank you for saying it.

@8patty - Are you feeling ok now? Is everything alright?

Negative people reveal who they are - not who you are. we are all on the adventure of life - we all make our own way the best we can. My goal is to be the best example of me I can be today - in what I say and do. The sad part of the cyber community is that actions are often replaced by typed words - and because there is no real human connection (eye contact, body language, non verbal clues) ; it becomes easy to be critical or crass of others with no fear of reprisal. So with that said; I am hoping that I can just be kind today and let my actions be reflected in my behavior here. I hope you have a better experience in the future and stay motivated in your journey.

FYI-I never give my opinion on what works/doesn't work or which diet is right/wrong. I try to show support/encouragement to FS members that are having days great/bad. I'm not a nutritionist/dr/physical therapist/psychiatrist but I'm an addict to food.

Just yesterday I posted a pic of my lunch and someone said it looked awful... all the positive comments totally outweighed the one negative comment. Don't be discouraged by the people that are unhappy with their own lives. They just want everyone to be as miserable as they are. Welcome to FS and please keep posting!!!
