    I am so ready to get Carol back. She is in such a bad place. I am glad she is taking time to heal her heart. She is not a cold bitch or a mean bitch. She is just a lady that is hurting and confused. I know exactly how she is feeling. It is a sad scary place. It makes me crazy that people can't see that. She is not perfect. And I am glad she is not perfect. Perfect is boring.

    I am hoping for the real Carol to show up in the second half of the season. I do want her to keep her selfishness though. I think it will help keep her head straight. People that have not been through shit that Carol has do not understand. Lucky for them they haven't and don't understand it. I would love for others to understand her better but would not wish the pain of abuse on anyone. I wish I didn't understand her so well. Hearing people say she is a bitch and selfish is like people saying it to me. I wish I didn't have so much in common with her. Would just love to see her happy for a season or two. No more mask for her. I am tired of wearing my mask but haven't gotten the strength to take it off yet. Who would have ever thought tv show could hit so close to home. Don't know why I just typed all of this out since it is just me in here. I guess i just needed to get it out since my journal was not close by.

    Carol makes me mad but as I've said before, it would take a whole lot more angsty behavior from her for me to abandon her.

    I love Carol and am VERY aware of the importance of her character as an older, previously battered woman with no spouse or kids. This is a highly ignored part of our society which is why Carol's arc and badassery is very important to me.

    I guess sometimes it's easier to be mad at her rather than really think about her pain. Because it's painful...

    It is very painful. She deserves to be happy. And I am ready for her to be happy again.

    Carol has been getting some hate comments lately, because people are all, "She left, so why is she so emotional about the family, why should she care, why is everyone praising her, especially people who don't even know her?" So I'm here to give her some love. The only reason she left was because she cared about her family so much she would kill for them, but she doesn't want to kill. I get it. Just because she left, it does not mean she doesn't care, because she cares about them all a great deal. And I believe that the reason everyone is praising her(Ezekiel, Richard) is because they can see that she has went through a lot, and they know the warrior look in her eyes. They don't know the stuff she's done, but just by talking to her and looking at her, you understand that she's done a lot, except for the people who don't look very well.

    Tired of seeing Carol getting bashed for leaving. Carol was at a breaking point. The thought of killing was beginning to take its toll on her mental state. If she had to step away in order to preserve her mind, that doesn't mean she doesn't care about her family.

    She doesn't want to keep living a life where she is fearing for her own, where she is afraid one merciful deed of letting someone live, will cost her loved ones dearly, but she also hates the thought of killing people in general.

    I know she's basically ignoring the reality of the new world right now, but I do think she needs this. She had gotten to the point of ruthlessly killing, even when it wasn't wholly necessary. She needed to take a step back and really look.

    Carol is back in action, and I am happy for it, but I am worried this isn't the way it should have happened. It doesn't feel this was due to any epiphany, but more pain.

    I hope by the end of the season we get Carol talking about her decision to join the war outside of "They killed my friends."

    Stop leaving Carol emotionally tortured, show.

    I never think of Carol as mean or selfish. She is undergoing PTSD and going through it as best as she can, in the way that she deems best. I don't know why she isn't allowed to grieve. She lost Sophia and how long was she grieving or gone mentally? Barely. She learnt how to operate weapons and was right there helping to take the prison. She is strong and capable and has saved TF on more than one occasion. And just because she saved the day DOES NOT mean the others are less capable(which is what I get from reading a lot of stuff online). The others are awesome too, and so is Carol. For me, TF rocks!

    You said it.....just the fact that she has put one foot in front of the other after Sophias death...seeing her baby as a walker.....how do you come back from that? Carol is a true survivor.....
