Ladies of Bootcamp

(color purple)text[i/purple] Hello everyone- it has been a little while since I posted in my own space and since I have the time to think before speaking(so to speak lol) I want to let you guys know that I took time away to come to grips with some of my favorite people having troubles- NO I dont wanna know the secrets nor do I care to get into all that-
We are all adults and we have all made mistakes- of this I am sure. It is my firm hope that we can agree to disagree and be adults and go on with our lives. Have any of the rest of you realized that Chip has been keeping alot of posts alive just to keep bootcamp going? I have been selfish by walking away and for that I apologize but It was best I did. I took too many things way too serious and after alot of talks with Suthn have decided that I enjoy the chats and stuff with bootcamp and it is silly to allow it into my 3D land lol. Alot of you guys have become a family of sorts because I feel free to ask question on any and all subjects- for this I say a huge thank you to all.

No- actually contrary to popular beliefs- YOU were not the reason Touchie. I have always been the type of person that would tell a person how I felt or ask a question if I wanted to know the answer. I was never (not intentionally) rude to anyone in there- then I did as was posted in the rules- I sent an email to a person about a disagreement and stated that it could have been worded differently. I had already ignored several comments from same person but yet I did as was asked- this other person did not.
There is not a one of us that is perfect- nor will any of us ever be.I also stated that I was leaving a group and that this person had the entire floor; I do not HAVE to have the limelight wherever I go and apparently others crave it- I am happy to be myself no matter who- what or where. No man will ever define who I am - I define who I am and I love myself too much to allow another to make me move to a lower level of life- highschool was along time ago and we are all suppose to be adults-
I never asked what happen because I did NOT want in the middle- I happen to like touchie as well as Sinders. They are both nice women and fun to post messages with. I was never to a point of picking sides as some beleive, and for those of you who laugh and say Yea right- well I accept my friends for who they are- I only beleive half of what I see and none of what is he said / she said. I never asked what happen from either side- fact is I really dont care, I am tired of seeing back biting posts and such- I am here to relax- blow off steam or ask for advice when I feel the need. I am not a "I am woman hear me roar" type female and I dont feel the need to be. I am myself and I for one am tired of the rudeness with which others have been doing of late. I have not left Bootcamp - only MPP- which solve was MY- yes - MY choice. If anyone cares to read these Emails that was the cause feel free to ask- I have nothing to hide.Thank you all for your time in reading this.

*sigh* None of us have to be in the limelight or we would have not taken the stance that we did. Chip isn't keeping Bootcamp alive on his own..it's an energy that keeps growing. Almost 3000 members and, while I love Chip to death, it was going long before he came along and will continue if he ever leaves.

I don't want you in the middle either darlin...I truly don't. I'm glad you've not left bootcamp. I am a hear me roar type but that's who *I* am but I only roar when provoked *le sigh* I, too, am tired of the drama but it is not drama that I or the other people that were affected by this caused and it never seems to stop because it won't be left to die...sleeping giants are being poked and prodded even while trying to ignore but we are only human afterall.

I, for one, am glad to see a person with conviction...why? because I have them...because the friends I have, have them...because it's those personal convictions that guide a very numb world back to a path of life. Honesty is one of my convictions and I believe it is yours as well...to turn my back on such a conviction is a betrayal to all that I am..and I love being me just as much I read you love being you.

Sin like you mean it!

We all have our own way of dealing with things and I did as I promised and left it alone. I have friends from all ranges here and I appreciate not being put in the middle. I am me- as surely as you are you - this is the beauty of bootcamp! We are all different and we can learn from one another. You have my respect with your time spent on line and dealing with personal issues as well. I am here to try and enjoy life a little and maybe learn a few things in the meantime. So enjoy and "Happy Hunting" sweetheart-
