Post in Besides Beauty

SERIOUSLY

Hey girls,

 

I just want to put this out there for everyone to read and I hope the mods will allow it to stay. It seems like lately a lot of people seem to come to beauty talk and think it's ok to attack or say things that just shouldn't be said. There are also some on here that disagree but don't know how to just say "I don't have the knowledge about this and would love to learn, instead it's put in a negative way and then everyone chimes in and breaks down all the good that we have all put into beauty talk. I just wanted to say that in response to all these negative reply's let's go above and beyond and let these people that come in know that we are all teaching and learning everyday and no one person has the answer it's all of our answers that make the BT community such a great place to be. I hope that everyone takes this in a positive manner because all I want to do with this is pull the good out of what we have achieved and keep BT growing as one of the best places to be. I hope everyone understands where this is coming from.

Re: SERIOUSLY

I totally understand Beautylovingirl. It bothers me when people are so rude. They have no idea what a great community Beauty Talk is. 

Re: SERIOUSLY

We're all here to share and to learn about a shared hobby: beauty products. Let's make peace, folks Smiley Happy

Re: SERIOUSLY

We have the best community there is in my opinion and I don't want negativity coming in and taking that away from us. I love the happy, friendly, funny place that BT is and just want the best for everyone that comes here.

Re: SERIOUSLY

I've been fortunate not to have been on the receiving end of hostility on here, for that I'm grateful. This is such a kind place, people should have manners and respect everyone, even it they don't agree. After all, if we all had the same likes and dislikes, there would only be one color of eyeshadow and what's the fun of that?Smiley Happy

 

Love your neighbor!

Re: SERIOUSLY

Agree.  What I've learned is that what we put energy into gets larger.  So, I just don't respond or hit the Delete key.

Re: SERIOUSLY

This is usually my approach too Smiley Happy Those ignored tend to lose steam fast when we aren't feeding the fire.

Re: SERIOUSLY

It's hard to remember this and practice it. Righteous outrage is definitely a guilty pleasure, haha. 

Re: SERIOUSLY

I agree on what we put are energy in gets larger and feel like just not replying or deleting is the best way to go that way I feel like whoever it is can learn that this is not the place to bring the negativity to and realize this is not the place for them.

Re: SERIOUSLY

Agreed.  I come here for 15-20 minute breaks throughout the day for fun and conversation.  This is a happy place!  (Does anyone else get an image of hugging your knees and rocking back and forth when you hear the words "happy place"?)

 

I think I know the post you're referencing.  I was on here when it was posted. The rudeness made me fume and I had to close my laptop and walk away.  I wanted to respond with something that was defensive of you and yet not attacking of the other person, but when I realized I wasn't capable in that moment I hit "cancel".   Wasn't the easiest thing to do because I had a load of things to say!

Re: SERIOUSLY

I know! It is so easy for negativity to bring out more negativity. Much harder to reply in a way that doesn't sink to the same level. I was appalled to see anything like it here, usually the disagreements that do happen are not serious and still handled in a respectful way!

Re: SERIOUSLY

@kalex- Thanks! I know I responded but in a different form than what I wanted to but thought I was just going to put in enough to get the point across. I respect and admire you just for wanting to help and I would do the same for you I know the haters are always gonna hate but they're never gonna win. And yes when  I hear the words "happy place" the same image pops into my head! LOL!

Re: SERIOUSLY

I love Beauty Talk. You ladies are all wonderful and friendly and helpful. Whenever my boyfriend sees me with my laptop he is like Sephora? Haha. He knows me so well Smiley Happy

Re: SERIOUSLY

Sephora.com = story of my life! haha

Re: SERIOUSLY

Heck ya!  You girls have given me so much advice and love!  Most, almost all-actually, of my friends are not make up lovers.  So this is the place I turn when I need to talk product!  

 

Keep it positive and helpful-exactly beautylovingirl!

Re: SERIOUSLY

It's not fair when amazing, knowledgeable, helpful people (such as yourself and the majority of ladies here)  who spend their time sharing their expertise and trying to help out people who come in to ask for help get words thrown back in their faces in such an unnecessary way. I hope they learn that treating people like that isn't okay and leads to jaded people who don't want to bother helping others. I don't want to be in places like that, that's why I'm here!

Re: SERIOUSLY

Amen Sista!

Re: SERIOUSLY

all i have to say is no-one knows everything, i'm not a professional i can help to the best of my ability but thats it, i have learned tons of things i was dying to learn and i've even tried new brands by reading reviews on BT, its very helpful, but when i first started people would send me messages saying "stop reccomending people to the same products just because you use them doesent mean you know what your doing" i was so surprised because it was so un-nessiscary for them to even do that. but anyway, none the less its easier to just ignore them anyway, there are too many good amazing knowladgable people on here to let one close-minded person ruin your expierence, & we all love your help and advise Smiley Happy

Re: SERIOUSLY

Im not sure what I missed!  But nobody has time for drama! This is not Facebook so people should take it elsewhere bc this is Beautytalk and we are all beautiful in our own way :*

Re: SERIOUSLY

I'm in the same boat as you.  I have no idea what happened, but you're exactly right.  Drama is for Facebook, not BT.
