It's come to my attention in the comments in your journal before last, that you feel like we're rejecting you and possibly condemning. This is far from what I've tried to tell to you. I never meant to offend you or make you feel attacked, this was not my intent at all. This was simply my skepticism that most people develop after using the net for awhile.
Sometimes people make fake stories, sometimes they troll, sometimes they use their "stories" to spam useless products. But now that I check through your works, which I now can tell you've put significant work into, you do appear to me that you're a legitimate above average writer for your age. That said, here's why I believed you weren't legitimate.
The subject matter to me wasn't familiar to me. However you did state that these were your experiences in which you could share nowhere else, and indeed you made a fine choice in this site. But once again, it was something I knew nothing about. Then again there are always people who have different experiences (me included) and it was wrong of me to judge you too quickly.
I apologize to you Sam2000 for my old-man-like skepticism. Indeed I am truly sorry to have offended you and for being blatantly close minded. I judged far too quickly. Do you forgive me? And if so, can we place this bitterness behind us?
