Mandie,  I don't want you to go either bear_cry bear_cry  I can't believe someone in this group would be so rude! but, I understand how you feel.  My hubby and I posted in another group and people bashed us behind our backs.  Needless to say it got back to us and we left.  Sorry some put you through that :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:  Jenn

DON'T LEAVE-  You are loved and appreciated her more than you probably know.  Don't let this unfortunate incident make you leave us.  Life is too short for this stuff.  Ignore the bad comments ( I'm sure that isn't easy) and don't take it too personally.  You gave your time to offer something fun to us, that is very commendable.  Thanks for being who you are and what you contribute to TT !!!   :hug:

It is obvious to me that there are alot of people who really care about you here, Please reconsider leaving. I never read your Christmas card Post soI don't know what happened with your Christmas card list but I am sure I can imagine. People can be hurtful and rude. I am sorry that anyone has hurt your feeling. :hug:

Don't let just a few nasty people drive you away from so many who love and value you.
I am praying for you.

In response to Mandie's original post to leave teddy talk:

Shelli wrote:

My advice to everyone -- the sage, the angry, the protective, the puzzled among you; each and every one -- would be to let it go at this point. 

Giggles and hugs to you all, and my finger wagging ever so slowly and gently, to warn off further bad feelings -- be they guilt, anger, remorse, defensiveness, or otherwise -- and subsequent posts on this subject.  Give Mandie a time to read how much she's loved and to sit on what's happened, without stirring the pot further.  It might have a good outcome for us all.

This is very good advice from Shelli! It's time we HEED it! Our advisors are here to advise us. We need to respect them! Had they been brought into this in the beginning none of this would be happening. Let's at least listen to them now!

I think we have to be mindful of the 'offending party/ies' here. Even though we don't know who it was who may have possibly even inadvertently upset Mandie, she or he is still a member of our group and more than likely a highly valued one whom we adore too.

Please go easy on giving this person/s a hard time..they may be 'invisible' but they are here, and listening to every 'not so nice' word being uttered about them.

I know for a fact that some of you don't even realize you upset Mandie.

You don't know the whole story here. Mandie needs to work this out and do what she is comfortable with. She's got the message that we all love her and don't want her to leave. But something has upset her and you wouldn't want to be spending your time at a place that, as a whole, has really upset you. Teddy Bears and their friends are meant to bring good, friendly, happy feelings. You've tried to show that to Mandie now but she has to be feeling that way in order to want to come here. Peer pressure isn't the answer.

Please, let Mandie have time. She has a lot going on in her life, not just us. She knows we're here for her with open arms whenever she decides to come back. Let's all move on.
