    Yeah, I feel like that most of the time. I think I stopped posting as much because I know I give worthless advice. But it's good to know there are people here who are really caring and helpful.

    I agree. Many people just need to know we have been heard. That can be the greatest gift of all. the pain and suffering witnessed.

    its not easy sometimes to help but i try. just listen you know. if you can be an ear for someone i think that helps.

    a warming post can really make the posters feel that they are not alone and can fight whatever is going in their life.

    there will be many times that perhaps you feel like you can't really identify with what's being said and that can feel awkward - in my case, i'm not comfortable just offering up platitudes if i don't have anything better

    lately i've been mostly silent because i feel so lousy that i can feel whatever i start to say sliding into a rant or complaint of my own - when that happens i don't post in response to someone else because it shouldn't be about my problems

    and on some rare occasions maybe i can offer up something from the heart
