Forgiveness
    #4526795 - 08/12/05 04:45 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I've been acting up lately and it's wrong.

I let my anger get the better of me and I've lashed out at several people on these boards.
I know that this is not the way. It leaves me feeling unsettled and unbalanced.
I absolutely hate the feeling of aggression, friction, and animosity between people. Especially when I am helping to perpetuate it. My conscience tells me to make peace, and live in harmony with those around me, even if we are at odds with one another, we can still do so respectfully.

So I would like to apologize to everyone right now for being a loser.
And I would like to apologize to Swami for calling you an asshole.

We all make mistakes. Me especially. I'm not perfect, but I like to improve on my mistakes and evolve from experience. And if I have moderated this forum inefficiently, or in a biased manner, well I'm sorry for that too. I will make an effort to be more objective and detached in my duties here.

I :heart: you Swami.. and everyone else.

It is me that is the true asshole.

so.. please forgive me.. if you feel like it.

I just got the warmest feeling I have ever had on this forum! (from a guy :lol:) That took real courage.  :thumbup: You are alright, my brother. The past is clear. :hug:

... for being a loser.

Don't go there. I don't believe that for a moment.

Embrace your animal instinct Shroomism. Just let go and join the dark side. :hellfire:

Well.. I may not *be* a loser.. but I sure have been acting like one.
My built in karma-regulator wont let me get away with too much crap

That didn't take courage to post.. it actually made me feel better.
I usually just end up making a fool out of myself anyway.. so fuck it right? :grin:

But I like peace much better than the alternative

:hug:

most everyone does asshole-type things sometimes
i know i do anyway

does acting like an asshole now and then make a person an asshole overall?

No I don't believe so.. a person is what intentions they have inside, not what mood or personality they take on for the moment. But still, being an asshole isn't cool, even if it is transient.

It's cool. I know all too well how sometimes things can get the better of us. Be that as it may, you're far from being a "loser" or an asshole - don't be so hard on yourself!  :laugh:

Seriously Shroomism, you're one of the nicest, calmest people on these boards that I've seen. This thread is just another part of that, but you're too hard on yourself over such simple issues.

I hope you're not repressing all those emotions in your peaceful hippy nature though.

Ah.. another one of my flaws.. being way too hard on myself.
I used to have self-destructive tendencies when I was younger
Guess I still have some residue left over


I gotta cut that out
:whack:

Actually.. quite the opposite. You should have seen me 6 or 7 years ago.
I've changed a LOT. At least I think so.
I used to punch holes in walls and break stuff etc.. I was out of control.
Now I just go into OTD :evil:

:thumbup:

Self honesty is fundamental to growth and personal, spiritual freedom.

Shoot, even I need to work on some areas myself... believe it or not. Sheesh! :grin:

Indeed, Shroomism is an excellent mod. He's almost libertarian about his duties from what I've seen, which is the way all the mods should be.
