Boundaries...

In my short life, I've met some good people, and some not very good people. For the most part, I've never had to place boundaries on anyone... simply because isn't a friendship based on mutual respect and common sense? Do I need to spell out to people and fans what common courtesy is or how to treat people? Just because you are behind a computer screen does not give you the right to threaten if I don't do what you want.  THAT my friends is NOT a friendship.. its a twisted view of how the world works according to selfishness and insecurity. When I go out of my way to help.. I do NOT expect people to cross over the lines of common courtesy and I will never EVER respond to threats.

Because of a few incidents, I've had to take pains to block people, and downright ignore emails from people that cannot have ANY common courtesy towards my life...

I have friends that I don't talk to every hour of the day, let alone skype every hour of the day.. these are life long friendships born of a healthy respect of one another's space and deep love.  When we DO talk it maybe once in 3 month time period.. it may be communication via mail or email or phone, sometimes we go 6 months without talking.  Its just how friendships are.

Please understand, that I really value comments, questions and conversations.  Just know that I will not always respond in your time frame, but I will.  Lets be clear though.. I will NEVER respond when I don't feel comfortable, or if I feel that the help I have given is taken advantage of and again.. never will I respond to: "If you don't talk to me, I will return all your music, or etc.." This kind of behavior only causes bad feelings and if that is what you wish to do, go ahead return whatever you deem as necessary.

ps.. I am NOT your licensed therapist....
