on here i usually feel i'm fighting water with a sponge, or that i'm on acid.You seem to suggest, T Devil, that the way you feel is the way everyone should (and possibly does) feel. Why is that?
You said that one, single statement (along with many others). She was affected by it. It happens. I'm actually shocked that you're fighting fire with napalm.
EDIT: On topic - Mack27, thank you for your post. I never really looked at the situation that way and I'm glad someone brought up something that has challenged my thoughts. I shall let your post sit with me for a while, analyzing and thinking. Where I might not share the same happenings and courses from my past, it's still very intriguing and a very possible possibility.
(Sarcastic remark: or should I not be affected by what you said, seeing as how it's possible to offend me or you. Oh wait, that's right! Others' words can affect me or other people, directly and indirectly! )
