    CoolCat7 reacted to LouisRiel for a blog entry, Fake Advice   
    Yes I am guilty of many of these, no I don't encourage or condone them. However, I have seen the first two recommended far too often both in this forum and in real life.

    What we do matters.  
    They are real souls, the 10 people who are watching DF, who are so scared of the stigma, imprisoned at 'home' to such a degree, or hurting so deeply.....
    10 are watching at any given moment for every 1 who dared to even sign up anonymously.
    If you read this, you probably have encouraged at least one person anonymously, with nothing to gain, just out of love.  
    And for every 1, there were really 10, check out 'Activity/All Users' to see for yourself.  
    How terrible is a disease that 10 are afraid to admit it for every 1 who does.....
    How valuable is even one note of encouragement, 1 genuine hug.  Multiply your hugs by 10........You're changing outcomes of life, you really are

    CoolCat7 reacted to RiverLight for a blog entry, Completely Dysfunctional Workplace Culture   
    Ok. So now my boss insists upon completely isolating me in my work from my co-workers. What kind of company culture is that? Completely dysfunctional it is. Previously, we had no supervisory 1:1 meetings or team meetings, which is unheard of. All communications (99%) were communicated online only. Who runs a company this way? A dysfunctional company owner. And now, I am isolated from my team, I am forced to ONLY communicate everything through my boss, yet she is the one who holds everything up and doesn't communicate well! She neglects to tell me important details, refuses to have 1:1 meetings with me, and often ignores my online messages, suggestions and requests. And now, everything has to be filtered through her? How will any of my work get done? And how am I supposed to maintain any level of productivity or morale when I am being completely blocked from any collaboration with any of my team members???? This is the MOST dysfunctional, ass-backwards company I have EVER worked for in my life. I am beside myself. Cannot wait to leave.... and say adios to my sick, twisted, malfunctioning boss.

    CoolCat7 reacted to RiverLight for a blog entry, Trying to Control Me...   
    I am a free spirit. When he becomes controlling, I feel like acting out and sometimes have. I want to rebel and let him know, you can't control me! How dare you! Why am I with someone who is trying to control me? Not always, but sometimes. Will he change his behaviors for me??

    This song I feel is very much representative of who I am. A free spirit I will always be ---- my wings cannot be clipped, nor should they be.

    "Bird Song"
    I hear a bird chirping, up in the sky
    I’d like to be free like that spread my wings so high

    I see the river flowing water running by
    I’d like to be that river, see what I might find

    I feel the wind a blowin’, slowly changing time
    I’d like to be that wind, I’d swirl and the shape sky

    I smell the flowers blooming, opening for spring
    I’d like to be those flowers, open to everything

    I feel the seasons change, the leaves, the snow and sun
    I’d like to be those seasons, made up and undone

    I taste the living earth, the seeds that grow within
    I’d like to be that earth, a home where life begins

    I see the moon a risin’, reaching into night
    I’d like to be that moon, a knowing glowing light

    I know the silence as the world begins to wake
    I’d like to be that silence as the morning breaks
