Excess ~ Moderation Preferred

Excess has the following definition… An amount of something that is more than necessary, permitted, or desirable. 

Anything can be done in excess. Posting, writing, sharing, many things. We all should set limits as to what our excess amount should be, and stop when we reach that limit. Just my opinion, of course. 

We are all free to do and share how much and how often we want. But maybe, just an idea, we should pause and wonder, am I in excess. Is what I am doing or sharing in excess. 

Everything in life requires balance. Too much of anything is never good.  Moderation is the key. Just sayin’.

Just throwing this post out there to get it off my mind. I am done now. Washed my hands and moving on.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. I have the opposite problem, I need to moderate myself less.
    I do very little already. πŸ˜…

    I think moderation is directly proportional to how much you can handle. Actually, I admire those who manage to be very prolific, yet keep quality high and have time left to engage with other people’s content. The side effect of posting too much is that your readers won’t be able to keep up with you. That could be a problem, if you care.

  2. Perhaps, and have you walked a mile or two in their shoes? Do you understand why they might be excessive? There are motives that might not be understood by all. My sister silenced herself personally, because she felt invisible.

    The bottom line for the site is content. Without content there would be no site. If the message was meant for me personally I assume you would have sent it to me privately.

    • This was not for anyone is particular, unless you want it to be. I am talking in general. And I alway think of others and what they might be going through. I talk a lot about how we should never judge anyone, as you don’t know their situation. But this post has nothing to do with that, it is about posting and sharing excessively.

      Yes we need content here but everyone, in my opinion, should think and focus on what they are doing and how much they are posting. Just my opinion, as I said.

    • Since many people might got the wrong impression I have to point out something…
      I just don’t understand why this user constantly repeats something no one minded her… And why she told me that I insulted someone that I never insulted. I did insult someone very long ago, but that was only her personally and no one else because I was hurt by her own non-understanding and criticism even though I tried to explain it nicely at first… I don’t know how could she possibly understood it was towards someone else…
      Nevermind, don’t want to start discussions just sayin’ – had to point that out so people wouldn’t make wrong conclusions about this like some people already have….. :/

      When I previously claimed this I was said I was lying so it is not clear to me at all… The only explanation could be I was not aware of some things but even then such things that were said to me could not be true nor logical…

      Just sayin’…..

  3. I can only suppose what this post might be about but (if you meant me I) must say I agree… The problem here is that you again don’t know all the information… You don’t know what was said and by who, who caused something, etc etc… especially that some of the things were deleted… In order other people not to get the wrong impressions some things unfortunately have to be explained and clarified even though (trust me) for me having to do that is the most harmful…..!
    I was exposed to some things and after a very long time finally reacted to them because I find them non-appreciative and quite selfish and hurting.. If that is bad then “sorry”…..! I was also provoked the much that that other person was provoked, he also didn’t want to stop but provoking me even more after I even finished my sayings… You weren’t there to read what has been said… I also don’t understand people who “track” other people’s personal conflicts or communications here

    • And never to forget the Wrong personal interpretations by the person that was “provoked”….. Unfortunately…, it always looks like I am the one making problems while I’m only reacting to some bad things that those rude people obviously don’t even understand… – therefore all those explanations… After all, who am I even explaining myself…? – To the people I don’t even know…..?

        • OK, then, I’m sorry then… You didn’t answer anything I wrote in those comments nor my PM so I thought maybe this was a “silent” expression of your thinking about it…

          Since I don’t know what this is about I say I agree… I often know and feel that since I am quite in line with the balance but unfortunately some things require exaggeration or at least I still haven’t learned to deal with some unfairness so I react…

          • There was no answer to your previous message because I refuse to get into a conversation about something that has nothing to do with me. Let’s have fun, smile, laugh, have a good time! πŸ™‚

        • Of course…!, but I didn’t expected you to interfere in it, just to know if you read and understood it, since you already commented and stated your opinion about it in Alex’s post based on what you read in the comments in his article that he and I exchanged… I only wanted to inform you not to make conclusions on what you read because of the reasons I already explained there (not to repeat myself…)

          • I mean you expressed the opinion on something you don’t know anything about (don’t have all the info) yet now you say you don’t want to get into the things that have nothing to do with you.. It is not ok to comment that way either… And since you already have I just wanted to make it more clear and to tell you that not everything is how it looks, there were other conversations that were made previous to that, and if you were reading my previous comments to him you would know my real opinion about his artworks… That’s all…..
