Taking things too far

Postby macchinainterna » Mon Jun 24, 2013 6:41 pm

A lot of you know that I loved to screw around and shitpost a bunch on the forums. I meant no harm from it and simply wanted to goof off and have fun with my friends on the site. However, over time my shitposting grew more frequent and less jovial. My friends in the community warned me about my actions and even asked that I stop. I didn't listen, and instead I got even worse.

I showed a lot of disrespect toward my friends and many others in this community with my behavior. This has weighed heavily on my conscience for a long time now, but I've made no serious effort to make amends or change my attitude for the better. I realized this when I recently shitposted in Kionon's thread without a second thought. I didn't think before I acted nor did I listen to my friends' warnings and inevitably went through with my poor choices.

I dont like this side of myself and I especially don't like that I've hurt people I care about with my behavior. I'm not able to forgive myself and let this go because I haven't taken anything I've talked to my friends about this to heart. I want to correct that. I want to take responsibility for my actions and make a serious change in myself. I want to be a better friend and person overall.

And to start, I want to sincerely apologize to this community for the trouble I have caused.

Don't kick yourself too hard over it, but thanks for taking responsibility for yourself :up:
More than anything though, I just missed having you around. Be around more!

Yeah, I think we all have sides to us that we have a hard time controlling. Part of getting past it is recognizing what triggers things before they do get taken too far; and you've demonstrated that recognition just now. Is a post like this necessary? Well, if it helps you great :) but I've always believed this is all you need to know:

Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become. ~Jim Rohn


It takes a lot of courage to post something like this, so be proud of yourself ;)
