Signing off of The Bump... GL to all

While some of you ladies are always kind, helpful and thoughtful, others out there are mean spirited, inconsiderate of others' feelings, and lack compassion.  We are all here with the same goal.  And while some of us may be less knowledgable on the subject of TTC, it's not reason to act so cruel towards them.  After all, they have come here looking to educate themselves on TTC, and receiving hurtful and or negative feedback is somewhat counter productive.  They are looking for support and advice, and many of you are bluntly unsupportive.  I fully understand now that this is the vibe of this forum and I am choosing to distance myself from such negativity.  My husband and I are trying to concieve a child, so I will be focusing my attention on that instead of here, where negativity runs rampid.  Hopefully some of you will learn how to be a little bit more compassionate towards others.  I wish everyone on here luck on getting pregnant, and to have a happy and healthy pregnancy once you do.  This best of luck message is even intended for those of  you who are mean spirited.  Perhaps it might inspire you to be a little nicer.  GL to all :-)

Re: Signing off of The Bump... GL to all

  • I'm not a newbie to TB, but I am to TTGP and everyone I have "talked" with has been incredibly nice, knowledgable and supportive.  I'm sorry that you have had the opposite experience.  But, I would suggest not GBCB and just ignore those that are rude to you.  Not everyone is going to be nice all of the time, it's the internet, kwim?

     Ok first of all... why are you posting here when you're already KU? Secondly, this is the Internet and we're all a bunch of strangers (except for those who've become friends IRL) so taking offense at what you read on here is pointless. Plus this isn't a site to get warm fuzzies and rainbows...people on here are looking for information....not support, not therapy, information. Now, IME I've seen overwhelming support given to not only myself but to other women on here. So I think it's unfair of you to accuse us of being unsupportive, uncompassionate or negative. You should've lurked a bit longer to realize how ridiculous and "mean spirited" your statements are. Besides,  IF we were these horrible creatures as your post seems to point out, do you think we would automaticaly start spewing rainbows and kitties just from your post? Please do us all a favor and spend a little bit longer lurking  next time and I think you'll realize what awesome women there are on here..full of information and believe it or not we're not quite the monsters you make us out to be.
