This is goodbye.

Postby Sara H » Tue Apr 30, 2013 6:00 am

So I think I'm done here.

I've been active on Dharmawheel for a while, and it's been fun, and there've been some good discussions, but I think I'm going to leave now, or at least take a temporary or indefinite hiatus.

We'll see whether I come back or not.
I'm not sure if I will.

It's possible I might stick my head in from time to time and say hi and post a response, but I doubt I'll be on or very active much anymore, or at least for the time being.

Thanks for everything, it's nice to meet you all, and know you all.

For those who want to get a hold of me, you can do so by PMing me, and I will get it to my email.

Appreciate all the good times and good discussions on here.

Have a nice life everyone.

I wish you all well.

In Gassho,

Sara H.

P.S. I'll stick around for a little while longer to respond to anybody in this thread.

I think many of us have done a " Goodbye Cruel Website ", or been tempted to.
I would swallow your pride and think again Sarah.
I would consider the content of your posts and ask yourself what it might be that irks people.
Something many of us have had to do, certainly I have.
I would concentrate on two things in particular..one is your assertion that you remember past lives...
This comes across as needing to push your credentials. As needy in fact.
The other is
your habit
of making things
sound significant
by the way you
phrase
your posts.
This amounts to wearing a "Kick Me " sign around your neck.

I hope you will stay. You have unique experiences to share.. as we all do.

Oh, there is one thing I do want to say:

I want to thank David Snyder for hosting this website.

I think that's pretty awesome of him.

Thank you David.

Bye (for now anyway) Sara - and thanks for your contribution to discussions here. Do drop in occasionally when you have time.
And all the best for your studies :reading:

Certainly, many of us have done an "exit-stage left" before. It's always a good thing to let go of these things and get back to practice. Come back when the waters have calmed. :smile:

I wish you well,
Gassho,

It seems our merit was insufficient. :crying:

sorry i missed this last night
hope it's just a hiatus and not a permanent "goodbye".

most of my forum experience has been foreign language or martial arts related and my experiences have generally been very positive.
i even met some of my best friends in real life from the martial arts related forums.
didn't start reading Buddhist discussion forums until mid way through last year and it's been a definite learning experience.
i've never gotten as angry, hurt, or upset during online discussion as i have on Buddhism-related forums.
i can really understand the need to take a break, especially if online discussion bleeds into real life and even your practice.
i've actually thought of quitting altogether numerous times as a result; sometimes even going so far as to consider quitting Buddhism altogether.
at the same time, I've received a lot of advice and encouragement on Buddhism-related forums and I'm in debt to those folks who've helped me out.
it's become easy for me to seek out confrontation online and it's a habit that I know i have to break.
have to remind myself that it's okay not to mix it up sometimes and that it's okay just to stick to threads & viewpoints that are non-confrontational.

understand that you've gotta weigh the pros and cons to see if something's actually benefiting you or not.
wish you all the best and hope things work out.

Meh you shouldn't decide to leave, just take a short break.

I've had a couple conversations on here that made me tempted to leave for good, i'm glad I stuck around, there is good here, even if it's sandwiched with frustrations sometimes. Just look at it like sitting, sometimes negative stuff happens because practice is working.
