* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Broke up with best friend
« on: January 24, 2017, 02:19:47 am »
...and it hurts. It's for the best; turns out they're a giant ball of lies and lack of respect, but it sucks. I guess I could use some positive energy. Prayers are ok too. I'll be ok but it just really sucks right now. I don't have a lot of friends and this person was somebody I thought I could trust with anything.

Well, life sucks. But thats not exactly positive.
Ill leave you with a quote that always helps me: You don't lose friends. You just learn who the real ones are.
You're only given a little spark of madness, you mustn't lose it.

I've had that happen, too. It's never fun.

Be well. Positive energy sent your way. :)

Thank you. I'm swinging through "all the horrible things I'd like to say to them" to "totally fine; screw em". Getting messages here is definitely helping. :)

This is a perfectly sensible place for it, and I don't see any need to move it unless you particularly want it to be in Prayer and Energy Requests (or, alternately, wanted it to be someplace more private than P&ER, in which case Cauldron Community would be a better fit).

It's a grieving process, with the same flipping back and forth among the 'stages' of grief as with any other loss processing, even if the friendship you thought you had was a falsehood - false or not, it was part of your reality, and you're mourning its loss. May you get through it as rapidly and easily as full processing will allow.

Thank you so much. I'm going to be tackling some ritual work when I get home. This was a very complex relationship, so there's a lot of untangling that needs to be done.

Fortunately, it happened right when I kept feeling prompted again to look into paganism, and focusing on that and magic has been a wonderful thing as I go through the grieving process.

Aw, man, that sucks.

Although not a close friend, I wound up officially breaking shit off with someone last week too, so I know a bit of how you feel. Just remember that you deserve people in your life who respect you, and that you will find people who do.

Thank you. :) Every day it gets a little easier, but the processing is rough.
