I genuinely want to let this drop, but I am worried about you.
I am actually really upset and dont get to upset over online stuff.
I asked someone else to make sure you were ok, and not hearing from them, tried a pm, which I know is overstepping my bounds, and your user id is turned off.
I dont know why, but I feel very very worried.
I am really sorry I offended you. I think maybe we got off wrong and you kept expecting me to be offensive and therefore took it wrong.
Maybe I'm just an offensive boor and dont realise it
But I do not intentially hurt people. I dont like people to be unhappy.
If i did want to be nasty, i am not subtle about it. Even trying to joke about an elephant you thought i was belittling you, no I just meant online comments arent that important, and also look closely at an elephants foot, their toes are sort of built in - hard to step on - I dont have any vulnerable bits, and I've a thick skin as well.
But now I am getting angry, I am angry becuase you have worreid me. For Christs sake you dont need me to agree with you, you dont need me to think the same, and even if i was being nasty intentially, which I am not, I am in no way that important to you. I am just a faceless person you have never met, my opinion does not validate or invalidate you. You can hate me if it makes you feel better, no problem, but I really and honestly hope you are ok.
I have apoligised before and will again, i never meant to give offense, this is just how I am, but how I am does not affect you. Ignore me if you like.
But do be nice and let everyone know you are ok.
And if I didnt like anything about you, i can assure you I would not waste my small amount of quiet time to write to you! I just really hope you are all right.
And if you never speak to me again, find some way to have fun - thrill seeking is meant to be fun you know, what you described didnt sound fun. Peace is good, finding yourself all that, but you really need to have fun too. Maybe I am overstepping again, maybe I am mistaken and you have lots of fun, but if not...find something.
All the best to you.

Hey - you don't know me...I am a JM member, I only lurk on this board now, I used to be a very active member.
I know Sophia outside of JM. I just wanted to let you all know she is fine. I just spoke with her, she is perfectly ok. She was on her way home from a mommy and me art escapade this afternoon painting ceramics….enjoying her children and her life. No need to worry ; )

I just wanted to let you know that seeing the thread – it was really the first time I’ve ever even witnessed her being so hurt by another person in a long time. I spoke with her and yes she was upset because she really puts her heart and soul into helping others and she is very accepting of different walks in life that are different then her own, but at the same time she is only human and like all humans seek positive connection with others and so even the best of us can sometimes be hurt by the comments of others whether in real life or online.
She did delete her user account, but don’t be concerned.
