M stands for Michael
- Dec 23, 2017
I'm so happy that I've managed to pass my secondary school-leaving exam, especially the speaking part I had earlier today.
As far as I'm aware that kind of fan page doesn't exist?I don't know if this is the right thread to ask this, but I need some intel on this...
Anyone on this forum owns or collaborates on a Coldplay OFFICIAL fan page sponsored/supported by Warner Music?
Thank you for the kind words! Of course it took me a while to return and here I am! In my opinion I used to be very frightened of sharing my opinions due to my notorious overthinking what would happen afterwards. I've learnt that it's often tiring and needless to act that way. I also understand that someone can disagree with me and ignite a heated debate but that's one of the purposes of forums and discussions after all. Apart from that it's clear to me that beforehand I have to realize how my words will affect the others and the perception of me. There's nothing to lose as well if I share a post because I'll have to deal with the potentional aftermaths not before but after publicizing a text. And yes! Emphasis mine. Most of the users I've met on Coldplaying are kind people which makes this forum very nice.Wow, sorry to hear. And glad you are back ! There is no reason to be afraid of sharing your opinion here, as you know this is such a nice forum. But I can understand that it may cause you anxiety. Don't pressure yourself on posting when you don't feel like it.
Thank you a lot for the words! There was a part of me which thought that I couldn't quit the forums for good so suddenly and abruptly because Coldplaying has given me so much that I felt I couldn't only take but deliver something in return! On the other hand it's all lying in my own hands. It's each of us who has to consider their words carefully and thoroughly and express themselves clearly and precisely as much as possible to avoid any misunderstandings and misapprehensions. Provided that someone misunderstands me I have no choice but to clarify and justify my approach. You never know how the others will react. You never know when communication can break down. You never know if someone takes your words out of context and twist them. I suppose it's always better to prepare yourself for a possible war of words once the word is out and all over town You never know when shit happens.I'm so glad you didn't quit! I know how that worry that something you say online can be taken the wrong way feels but don't worry-your posts are great
Oh... Thank you very much for your words! Naturally I understand that it's not welcome and awful to experience such a phase. However I'm convinced that sometimes one has to hit rock bottom to bounce back! It'd be wonderful if we could live our lives completely without any burdens and suffering(s). But that's not the case. Accordingly in some situations I stick to one of my favourite phrases "it is what it is". Unfortunately sometimes we have no choice but to take it as it comes because there's no way to improve the situation or turn it around. In other cases there is always a solution if we are willing to make a change and rescue ourselves.Damn that's too bad that you went through that phase...... I've had my own anxiety attack phases, none really related to speaking my part publicly, but I know a lot of people struggle with that and it's harsh to hear a cherished forum member like you who I know fairly well has gone through that.
I'm glad you're better now though!
By the way, I know we're all different and some things scare us more than what other people might think, but wouldn't being overlooked be better than being scrutinized? At least you wouldn't tell the difference then between people not noticing you and ignoring you
I also didn't notice your sticker, probably because I took my own long hiatus from the forums myself, just because i got kinda bored of it, that's all. As it died down after the AHFOD era.
Hm... I'm not so certain of it to be honest. What's the point in taking anyone else's post the wrong way? If I say something I want it to be understood the right way so the readers would learn correctly what I tried telling them. On the other hand I guess it's completely fine and harmless unless someone grasps your text wrongly and lets you know about that... I presume that then you correct them resolve the misunderstanding and rectify the whole situation. However you're right. It's just the Internet till it's the showdown...And also remember it doesn't really matter if your post gets taken the wrong way, it's the internet, they might just be trolling and in the vast majority of cases it won't matter because you won't ever see them in real life, and there aren't any consequences.
But I also think @M Marks The Spot is a great contributor to the forum, they have nothing to worry about!: D
