Theres not an email (i dont think...) but most people use PM or skype to talk to the clergy when they need to. Though, they dont let you just spew, some actually expect you to work on doing something about it :D


Which is why i was making it a suggestion.

"supposedly certified to handle such things" - care to elaborate?


What is there to elaborate on? I am pretty sure my words were quite clear. But as you wish.

Supposedly = According to what is generally assumed or believed IE: I am not sure as I am just a novice here and don't know the manners of religious order and actions here at TotJO.

Certified = Trained to aide in counseling/priest/confession

....to handle such things. (See Certified)


*nod* makes sense.

So you feel that speaking with someone who is certified in counseling training is potentially a good method of helping people deal with emotional stuff?


Yes. And so do many others.... since you know, Counseling and priests who take confessions are quite common. Speaking for myself, yes. I do.



Even though the training that certified counselors undergo in order to hold that qualification is based on our understanding of human emotions and behaviors that comes from decades of "studies"?

I used to PM Jestor and rant from time to time. And he never gave me advice or what to do, he just listened.

It was nice.

I would eventually work out what ever issue I had and tell him about it later and he would just say something like, “that’s good.” And smile.

When this thread first started I envisioned it being something like that, but for the public. I should have known it would become a pissing contest to see who is right and who has the better opinions.

My rant is, why in the hell do we have to Butt heads at every corner over every little thing? It just seems so pointless. Is it good for me to rant? Probably not. Did I hurt someone’s feelings? Most likely. And you know what? Sometimes I think we all need a little slap in the face as a wakeup call.

Go ahead, complain and argue away… prove me wrong.

Okay, I guess I’m done.

I think...
I am having a hard time right now...
The one person who I counted on to always listen...
We''re separated now.
I have been very lonely and feeling no-one else new what I was going through. Then I made an off comment thread about how some people just needed to blow off steam and maybe we should have a place for that so the rest of the threads could enjoy a little more peace and constructive discussion.

I ... Was happy at the response to this...
I thought maybe everyone else needed a place like that...like me.
A few simple rules to keep fights from breaking out or hurt feelings and we would all have a place we could go to where somebody would listen...even if it was just a moderator.

But that was expecting too much and I was a fool. It became every other thread.

Honestly, rugadd, I'm going to disagree with you. You were not expecting too much. You were expecting the bare minimum of respect that we, as people, as humans, as Jedi, should show other people.

It was us that screwed up.

You know, there is no reason why you cant still do that.

And Im going to disagree with Steam here. Threads are organic. They change. Journals are set aside for the purpose of speaking without interference. The forum is not.

In all seriousness though.

If you want someone to just listen, there are many in the temple who cherish the opportunity to offer a safe haven for people to talk out what they are going through. Myself included. Reach out if you need to.

I second that (unless someone beats me to it before I click submit...then I'll take third or...whatever).

There's no need to create threads to blow off steam or rant when you can be honest and open with us about what's going on in your life. You've got a pretty good support system here. :)
