Give Them a BREAK, Would Ya?

Give Them a BREAK, Would Ya?

I cannot STAND negativity. OMGoodness it drives me bat crap crazy . To the point that I will literally stop, sometimes mid-thought or mid-sentence - mid-WORD even - and simply walk away. Like my brain just completely shuts down.

Negativity is definitely a trigger for me. Might be something to do with a former relationship and that I was being crushed by it. So much so that I barely got out and once out, I vowed never to go back in.

To that horrific wasteland of negativity. Ever EVER again.

And mostly? I don’t.

Oh heck, it’s not ALL rainbows and sparkly unicorns in my world. That would be nauseating too. And cheesits, nobody and nothing is perfect, whatever that means. But truly, sincerely, I try to tend toward the positive whenever and however I can.

Which brings me to my point for this post!

You may or may not be aware of what has gone on since the launching of Persona Paper just a couple short months ago. I’m not going to share all of it here; you can do your own homework on that.

And well you should if you wish to really know all you can about a place you are contributing for - it just makes good sense.

A lot has gone on. Crazy stuff - that no one could have foreseen - but it happened.

And the Admins - and - are rolling with all this craziness as best they can on a minute by minute basis.

Give them a break, would ya?

You do know that NOTHING is perfect (whatever that means) right?

That Will and Heather are working to provide a community that we may all enjoy. They are working for the greater good for ALL of us. To that end, it might behoove you to respect them when communicating with them about things concerning your time here at Persona Paper.

I’m not calling anyone out and I’m not in any sort of official capacity. And I’m trying really hard not to be a dink about what I’m saying here either.

AND, it might surprise you to know - I see both sides of it, theirs and ours.

While we want a perfect site that has everything we want want want , they are working diligently and PROMPTLY to maintain and grow, while catching up on stuff that got tossed aside during the AdSense melee´. (If you search, you’ll figure that out, soon enough.)

So while I’m not asking for you to be quiet or complacent, neither should you be negative.

When contacting management with issues, be respectful. Encouraging. Kind. Offer a hand. Throw them a thank you if they’ve done you a solid.

Remember, they are working for us and as much as they need us for Persona Paper to succeed, we need them too . Give them a break, would ya?!

Also, please do remember that positivity begets positivity and negativity just plain sucks - here and in all your life!

I so agree. Hate to see people gritching and moaning and posting the negativity on the site they're writing about. It's okay to make suggestions, and I don't mind reading that, but it's not fun to read a bunch of negative stuff.

Luckily, I haven't come across too many negative posts, and if I've missed any, hopefully they decided to not be such a negative nellie and deleted the posts before we had a chance to see it. Negativity is just not cool.

I agree - suggestions are AWEsome. And there are ways to go about sayin' what you mean without being a meany pants about it, too ;)

Not cool at all, . I get that there may be problems but instead of complaining, it would be better to be proactive, respectfully.
G has a habit of saying, rightly so - you can be part of the problem or part of the solution, your choice :) He's a smarty, that guy of mine ;)

#SandraLynn Thank you for saying this. Now I don't have to. ;)

Oh, I don't know, my love - I very much enjoy your take on things - besides, I'm sure this will come up a thousand more times or so, one of us will have to utter words of this nature again CoralLevang :)
