Deflated for a while
Had two opposing experiences with a forum today. The first was from someone who wanted to start a conversation with me. Very positive, similar situation (but for much longer) and someone I feel I would like to get to know. The second replied to a positive comment I had put on there and cut me down with one sentence leaving me feeling totally deflated. I have now picked myself up, dusted myself down and worked out that I can succumb to railing at the world and complaining that my life isn't working out as expected or I can play the hand we've been dealt and make the best of everything. Guess which one I'm going with! Interesting though how people's responses can have such an impact.
