If there’s one thing I’ve built up through everything I’ve experienced, it’s a healthy defense system.
Whether they occur on this blog or in real life, insensitive remarks, projections, failures of empathy, hostile attacks, and misreadings simply splat like so many passing bugs on the windshield that protects my psyche.
I wipe them clean and press on.
I’ve noticed that in your replies to comments. You never seem to get riled up, but just openly and plainly state your view and perspective. I admire that you engage in discussion without being defensive. Very admirable!
Thank you, that’s nice to hear! I do occasionally get some pretty mean comments on here, but I just delete them as the commenters are not interested in serious discussion. They just want to fling insults.
