But aren't we all in reality? Most people just don't have the minerals to wear there heart on there sleeve on a public forum.
Fact is, I've never attacked anyone personally on this forum, but every time I've come out and bleed my heart out about mental illness on this site, I've been shot down and told to 'man up' (paraphrasing). But Olive's issues caused 2 highly respected members to leave and members are treading on egg shells and going out of there way to offer support.
The reason is simple... Olive has something which could be useful to most members (cuttings plants seeds, ect), yet I have nothing of use to offer anyone... I am merely a fellow human being, living in this mysterious complex, which is our reality.
In other words, the corroboree really is no different to main stream society in general... You are happy to pretend to be as enlightened, understanding & empathetic as they come, but only under the condition that they have something of materialistic value which could prove beneficial to you some day.... Just being a fellow homo sapien, just don't cut it.
It's both a cruel, yet understandable reality of our existence. We are after all just primitive life forms.
Anyway, I do wish ya the best of luck Olive, with whatever dark cloud your dealing with atm. I've always liked ya from what I've seen on these forums... But I don't do the plastic mentality sugar coating thing braz... You can call me an idiot or a loser, but at least I'll never be fake or disingenuous.
