    There is overwhelming evidence that the higher the level of self-esteem, the more likely one will treat others with respect, kindness, and generosity. People who do not experience self-love have little or no capacity to love others.

      foh4k I love your quote: "There is overwhelming evidence that the higher level of self-esteem, the more likely one will treat others with respect, kindness and generosity. People who do not experience self-love have little or no capacity to love others." You are spot on, foh4k .

      Also, people who weren't raised with empathy and / or experienced the wrath of unempathetic types during adulthood can't have the capacity to be empathetic toward others. It's impossible especially if they were once innocent and had been since been tainted courtesy of bad people in their midst. Everyone is a product of their environment and influences both good and bad to very bad. Therefore, expectations to behave with emapthy are unrealistic and hopeless. Meanness begets meanness.

        Can I ask why?

        We can always make it private so only we are allowed there.

        However, if a WhatsApp is preferred, then I can do that too.

          It's just a chapter of my life that I'm closing along with the site.

          By all means, if you guys want to make a group then go nuts.
          By me saying "I'm not keen on a group" that isn't me saying "I don't give you permission" - go nuts, make a group, keep in contact with each other! What I meant is I, personally, do not want to join a group.

            Many have and its a lot of thanks to this site and various opinions.
            But to be honest people that have stayed should be commended for their ability to acknowledge opposing opinions.
            And not stay for the opinions of people merely ageeeing with them.

              A FB group can have a private closed group but its only as private as the members or admin allow it to be.

              I wont join. Sorry.

                I don't see the purpose of a facebook group. What would we do? Just talk to each other? We're all interested in helping others with relationship issues, not just chatting on facebook.

                  I looked at enotalone (funny name). I felt a bit odd about it as all of you weren't on there(obviously/different site). I'm not sure if I would join later this year but if I do you'd see me as the same username Rose Mosse.

                  Maggie, I'm not sure what you meant by your comment above (post#50) but I do appreciate your viewpoints. I don't agree with abrasiveness ever. I've learned to cut that out of my posts and as soon as members were less abrasive, argumentative, ridiculing and rude to me, I had no reason to be rude to anyone else. I had more time to help other members with real problems than constantly defending the viewpoints or opinions I had which were often misunderstood. I think generally more listening and understanding is needed and if we can do that as a group we'd be more effective.

                      Absolutely.

                        I appreciate the admin and most people here who were kind, insightful, helpful yet tactful.

                          My fault. I misunderstood your post to say, not so much that you didn't give permission, but that you didn't think we should do it. Misunderstanding on my part.

                          It seemed like that's what people were looking for, a place to keep in touch with each other, so that's why I suggested the Facebook group. It's not the only forum that I've been a part of that has since evolved over to Facebook groups. But if there's no interest there, no big deal.

                          It does look like there is a possibility of another forum / community that some from here have migrated to already? Perhaps that could be worth checking out.

                                You have to be creative about insulting people while seeming nice.
