Damn jim, that's really nice. I'm not good at letting people do nice things for me. I'll take you up on it if you let me pay, and it doesn't cost too much. (I know, I know. I'm impossible.)

That's 'cause you're way over there. I hear tell that if people REALLY knew me they would hate me.

See what I do to me?

(You guys are so kind. Thanks.)

These people are lying. We know they are. And you do, too!

Like I tell my kids, just because you hear something offensive does not mean you get to repeat it. That guy was a dickhead and doesn't get to control you this long after the fact.

Inf, you ain't a freak - people who say shit like the above and feel entitled to fuck with someone else's peace of mind for kicks or their own self-aggrandisement are the freaks.

It was $9. You can pay me by giving it to someone who needs it more than you do once you're done reading it. let's have that addy.

Re "You're really a freak" comment.

IM, you're not. A simpler explanation is that the person who says that is just wrong. Just wrong.

It's a hateful, hurtful thing to say to someone, I won't try to explain the motivation cause I don't know. It's just mean mean and wrong. Don't buy it.

I don't think there was such a comment V. It seems you've consolidated comments made by infi herself and comments made by others. Maybe it's not too late to get your money back on that speed reading class.

The comment was that if people really knew me they wouldn't like me. I was the one who called myself a freak. But it all illustrates the pattern of emotional abuse and its long-term effects.

And anyway, I appreciate bigv's sentiment. You all have done me a world of good.

Who really knows anyone? Inf, you're fine, people are assholes. and that's all there is to it. If someone doesn't like you/anyone, it's a reflection on them, not you/the people they don't like. Unless we're talking not liking Donald Trump.

That's true monster. People that don't like something about you, almost always dislike that same thing about themselves
