I need help please someone inspire me with encouraging wordsHello guys,
I am so sorry to ask for this on my first post.
I recently joined two forums, so as to see if it would help me. This one recovery.org. and another one.
My lack of choosing words correctly led me to ppl misunderstanding that I was there to call some1 a liar instead of telling her that I believed her.
I am really cautious about being in a new group.... forums is something new to me. So when some1 was asking advice I tried my best to give her information. But I did not know if taking sides was permitted... like if I talk about doctors... I was not sure if I should say they were bad, good or neutral. I just chose neutral. And it gave the wrong impression that I was siding with them and calling the Original poster a liar. I mean why would I do that? We are here seeking for help. That emotionally shocked me...... I am about to relapse..... but I really wouldn t want to..... i feel ashamed but tears are coming down my eyes as I am writting this, and I am a 34 years old male (i opened myself too much, I shouldn't have, I learnt to trust nobody long time ago, and I did not why I trusted a place where I was new, I was eager to come back to that post that I thought I could contribute and get help)........ even moderators accused of banning me.... cause I did not follow up in 5 days. What started as a misunderstanding ended up in me being a person that likes to call ppl liars and not let them express themselves. Even the one moderator that first sided with me, couple of days later was warning me that I was almost banned. And all because I did not respond in a timely fashion that I could have easily clarified.
I do not understand how a person that says this:
"You guys, I'm not trying to make excuses, but if you read danishimi's thread about stigma you will read that English is his third language and I'm pretty sure he's new to posting too. I really think he has good intentions. I don't think he was trying to criticize you at all, but was just looking for a way to show off his knowledge and enter a conversation."
ends up in this
"Danishimi!! It is not your place to imply that one of our members is lying! (user) is allowed to share her experience here without being doubted or undermined!
Consider this a warning, Danishimi. You are a very new member and we won't have you demeaning a member like (user) who has been here for over 5 years. [...]Or you could find yourself banned!"
And i have no posts during those days... I was not able to even check. like they just rolled the post and me clearly see the chain of people taking the previous poster as the truth... and adding more assumptions.
Is seeking help from forum post really not for me? Am I not expressing myself correctly?
