I don't find Jay annoying or childish. I find it refreshing from the stuffy norm that people get caught up to living day after day.
I always speak my mind and stand up for what I belive in. Fasting is a hard thing to do. It takes self control, and a strong will to do what we do. It is never easy and during fasts, people's emotions run high and low as their bodies are cleaning itself out. Fasting is a very mental, emotional and physical thing, all three things that are hard for any person to deal with at one time, let alone for days and sometimes weeks at a time.
And there are always beening moderators and disputes and disagreements in the Water Fasting forum. I have been coming here for years and I have seen it all. And most of the time I just take it with a grain of salt. Because to allow somethings get to a person, then they are allowing the clouds to block the sunshine in their lives. But sometimes during a fast it is much harder.
It is always hard for me to deal with critisim especially during a fast, because all my defenses for the mental and emotional part of me are down and repairing themselves and reseting themselves. What I hear sometimes during a fast can hurt or harm me. I failed my last fast a couple weeks ago, because I got bummed out due to a comment made to me here on this website. I can only imagine how other feel when someone gets a bit too critical during their path on fasting.
Please for the sake of others, refrain from sharp critical comments that hurt more then lift a person up during their struggle with their fast. Words can hurt very deeply at times.
We try to all treat each other as we would want to be treated ourselves. I know at times during peak fasting times, emotions run high and can cause people to say things that are not really meant.
I am not trying to take sides or start fights. I am just saying that what you say to Jay, not only affects him, but it affects me as well, because I read it. And being a sensitive person, I am I am hurt. I hurt for both parties. For Jay because his jovial attitude was be clouded by such comment and for you because feel you are unhappy and hurt. I don't like to see people hurt. It hurts me to see people hurting.
I hope my comment didn't stir up problems. I didn't wish it to do so, if it does. I appoligize with all of my heart, if it has.
My fast is hard on me at times and I feel at turmoil at times, and such comments add to my turmoil. I am so very sorry.
