PostSubject: About this Forum   Tue Dec 06, 2011 12:24 pm



I don't have many rules here. To me, the guidelines and forbidden things are reasonable and keeping with the spirit of this forum. Mainly, just play nice. If there's any kind of issue, just send me a PM and I'll respond.

I started this site, as I have others, partially because I was so weary of the way other sites were run. What began as a way for people to connect who would not normally meet each other, became an overloaded, top heavy behemoth that has disintegrated into frequent feckless forum of foolishness.


Though i am an avid user of Facebook, and I have over a thousand "friends", this is mostly to keep in touch with those I left behind when i moved, or for marketing purposes, since I'm an author. It's sort of the Nature of the Beast these days. But---in general, I dislike the concept of mass messages to faceless people, and all that "add a friend" activity, which is often really adding a stranger. It's almost like most participants on MySpace and Facebook want to see if they can have more friends on their list than you do, as if somehow that reflects the wonderfulness of who they are. Nine times out of ten, the majority of those on the friends list are forgotten, and never engaged again. This practice can be transparent, false, disingenuous, and a waste of time and space.


I am an avid proponent of meaningful communication. We all need to know how to do it effectively, and chatting about our lives and our place in the world and in the Universe, is a sure way to make that happen.

I've spent many years studying human nature (partly because it's fascinating, partly because I'm a writer and must know how to build characters, and partly because it helps me in my own personal evolution). Communication is one of the most common problems among HUMANS, as well as HSPs, and is problematic only when we don't learn to communicate well. Thus, making an effort to ommunicate yourself and your concerns and ideas, leads to deeper understanding and more profound connections with others.

So don't be afraid to say what's on your mind.

I believe this is partly at the core of what's wrong in this world right now; People have forgotten--or never learned--how to connect, and it is my hope that I can maintain a foothold in the skill and necessity of verbal expression. This is a crucial skill fro HSPs to have, as it is so easy for us to retreat and isolate ourselves. I want us to engage each other in a real and personal way. We are here to share our true SELVES--what we create, what we think and feel, what we believe--with the other members. And we are here to support each other in that regard.


This type of communication allows you to get to know others in an authentic way, and can lead to even more meaningful relationships in person. We're here to form worthwhile and lasting relationships. Denver HSPs is most definitely a place where humor and fun is encouraged, as well. So don't think for a minute I'm a stuffy prude.


I hope you all will respect and enjoy the spirit of this forum in that way. I love it when the members engage each other, here, and I appreciate input in that regard.

And thank you for being SENSITIVE.
Jae
