My One Year on Elliqiuy Post
« on: September 09, 2008, 04:25:41 PM »
I generally do not really notice big milestones. But this one is something special as I grew so much in both real life as well as my online life since and because of folks at Elliquiy. To start off I will share how I was when I first joined.

I was awkward and shy, reserved, and quite frankly before the Mentor Program I did not really know many people other then Elvi, Strangely, Veks and a handful who took the time to pm me. My husband and I practiced bdsm in the bedroom but had talked of growing that relationship, and I was a bit resistant due to previous experiances.

As time went by on Elliquiy, I got to know so many people, go close to many of these as well. People who know me, know how difficult it is for me to really open up and share anything really intimate with people, and I learned how to do that more in my time on Elliquiy.

I learned about myself, and I learned about my quirks and habits. I learned that I was not so strange and weird, and just anti-social, with the help of the great community of Elliquiy.

I made lasting friendships that in all honesty are the most real friendships I have ever had. I won't name you all but my friends know who they are, and to the others who I am not so close with yet..well I will probably here another year so perhaps by this time next year I will have expanded.

I learned to recognize my own flaws, and to work on them but notto get discouraged and beat myself up when I fail at correcting flaws. No one is perfect, no one should expect even themselves to be.

So to all of Elliqiuy, close friend or not, I thank you for the wonderful years worht of experiances, and making each day something new and exciting.


*hugs*

One year, and I've called you my friend for perhaps 2/3 of that time.  My return to Elliquiy coincided with your decision to come a bit more out of your shell, and I can say that I'm proud to have been a part of your life as you have grown and changed.

You are one of the best people I have known, anywhere.  You are easily one of the best writers and sexiest minds on the internet, and have been with me through thick and thin.  You are a vital part of this community, and make us better by being here.

Thank you for being you, and congrats on one year on E.

Congratulations, Sherona. :) You've got such a lovely personality and sharp mind, not to mention a lot of other things that others who know you more can describe better than I.

I can sincerely and genuinely say that meeting and talking with you has put more than a few smiles on my face. I'm glad to have met you, and I hope to get to know you better in our continued time here.

Elliquiy is a magical place, and I for one, think that you're part of what makes it that way, my dear.

*offers a warm hug*

I'm delighted to have gotten to know you, even a bit, and I, too, hope this is just the first of many equally wonderful years here in the best community in cyberspace.

*nods* I look up to you. You're one of the only people I know who has made a D/s relationship work. I know it can be done, but I always love hearing you talk about your relationship with your husband.

*nodnods and sighs* That is one of the reasons I am so outspoken. A good bdsm relationship is a wonderful thing if both partners enjoy it. But people who do not know that Doms are caring loving individuals and not just some psycho control freaks can make a relationship scary, frightening and down right dangerous...

*grins* No real derailment can happen on this thread, as the intent was simply to state how I have grown and what I have learned..did all that in one single post, I didn't blog it simply because I wanted to be sure that people who wished to comment could :D

*shy hug and smooch*  i've always valued your friendship, Sherona.  You're one of the reasons i decided to come back after getting somewhat fed up here.  E has a lot of bit hearts pumping blood through its veins and yours is one of the biggest, no matter what you might otherwise think. Thank you for making this small part of the world a better place and congratulations on your E-versary.

Congratulations, Sherona! Creating such flows of trust, mutual respect and playfulness in an online community AND feeling a very REAL and AUTHENTIC realtionship with friends is a gift.

A rare gift.

Outing yourself as politically not correct even increases my sympathy:):) This what E in general is unique about.

All the best,

Rob
