Post of the week - with a twist!

Hey :wave:

Time to nominate 'post of the week' but this time, following from my name's suggestion last week - we'd like you to nominate posts which you think give particularly good advice or insight into a situation.

For example: malteser monkay's post in this thread:
Did she love me at all?
http://vbulletin.thesite.org.uk/showthread.php?t=95268

"You shouldn't doubt whether she loved you at all, because that's unfair - after 4 years there must have been that element to keep you together. But things change - situations and people."

Who's got agony aunt/uncle written all over them? :)

    I really like MM's post.

    I did like this one by I'm With Stupid too, though...especially the last part (as it's possibly a bit much to have the entire post).

    "Needing to be the centre of attention all the time, or needing other peoples approval can also be a sign of insecurity. Whereas a quiet person might be completely content with themselves, and have a more 'take me or leave me' attitude.".

    Just think it's something a bit different, there's a lot of relationship talk going on... bitter much? :p

    While I think Malteser's post is very good, I'd also like to nominate this one. It's from the same thread briggi was talking about (the one about low self-esteem):

    Now, I still don't know how to accept a compliment, so I just say thank you.

    I'm no longer so arrogant as to believe I know better than the person complimenting me, so I can appreciate what they say, and get a warm glow from it; and where I can't help but disagree accept that they are expressing their opinion, and take pleasure that they felt comfortable enough to tell me, and that they respected me enough to tell me.

    While it's in first person, I think it valuable cause it gives others in the same situation a new angle to look at things, and it also shows how a person has grown, and thats rewarding and gives others hope...

    Yes that is a good one - it's quite long though so is this the main part of it you liked? -

    If not could you edit it to about the same length with which bits you want me to include for the vote tomorrow - cheers! :)

    What was wrong with when post of the week just suddenly appeared?? :p
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    it appeared once every three weeks or something, or whenever stargalaxy went bonkers at them

    Only if they didn't update it every seven days like they're meant to. I probably gave half the mods headaches...

    And how did you know that? Did the mods complain about it when you saw them?
