I visit and write in these forums my views, my thoughts and my beliefs. If someone sees them worthy and adds them to their own I'm proud, I'm joyous and I'm thankful. But when I write and am ignored or have my words rephrased by someone else or worse still when my words are attributed to another no matter their qualifications then I'm saddened because then I'm nothing, I have no meaning, no value to speak of. For whatever reason it has been done it has been done to me and truly I don't understand why.
True I don't have the academic qualifications that others here have, but then I was lead to believe it wasn't necessary.
It's a bit of sadness creeping in that I feel I need to resort to this soliloquy in order to get things off my chest.
