It takes most people a while to get to really know who they are.
I would guess it's because you have to be willing to go deep;
look at it all...the good and the bad. You have to face things
that you don't like. A friend once likened it to looking for a
It took me a long time to get where I am and to know myself the
way I do...really know myself. I know what I believe in and I know the standards and ethics I hold myself to.
It becomes extremely difficult when you mix good-hearted, trusting people together with liars and manipulators. The result is that throngs of good people end up getting thrown under the bus, so to speak. In October, I unknowingly got mixed up in one of these situations. I wouldn't have expected it, but hindsight is 20/20. Like Mom always said, "If it seems too good to be true, it usually is." Once again, Mom nailed it!
Yep... they were reelin' the suckers right in and I was one of them! I fell for this shit! Hook, line & sinker! I fell for the barrage of lies told by the unofficial forum moderator (and don't tell me there wasn't one because she used to talk to co-founder Andrew Gray on the phone at least once a day according to her, if that is to be believed!) and got sucked into a complete Charlie-Foxtrot of a mess because I believed her! You have more than likely read about the 'secret hidey-hole' group... well I was in it! A good friend and I were lied to about the reason for the group, but by the time we sat back and realized it, the bomb had already gone off. I'm not going to sit here and pretend I'm an innocent victim, because I'm not. I did and said many stupid things that I have since apologized for repeatedly. Does that make me a saint? Nope...certainly not.
Feeding the Bull
These boyz had managed to turn people who could have been great allies, and possibly even friends, against each other for the sake of keeping their SCAM up and running! And it all began with a bird...
In the End...
Just an aside: When someone states that they understand something, it does not mean they agree with it! I understand a lot of different opinions on this whole ridiculous circus of a scenario, but that sure as heck doesn't mean I agree with all of them!
In the end... we ALL go into the same sized hole in the ground! (Unless of course you get cremated, and that's an entirely different ballgame!)
