Debby and Mary Kay, I thank you both for putting in the good words for me. I consider you
both good friends and will never make any excuses for it. I am proud to call you friends,
so let anyone else who has issues with it, deal with it as best they can.
There is a history here that is not going to resolve itself amicably.
Usually, if I offend someone I am aware of it. I do not go out of my way to challenge
anyone, but I will not be "spoken to" in a manner that I don't deserve or isn't warranted.
I don't know what goes on in other people's lives, yet some folks seem to know what I will
do, when I will do it, how I will say it and so on and so on and so on. I find that both
amusing and sad at the same time.
There are people that aren't happy and they will do their best to drag others into their
ring of despair. Envy resents the good others receive or even might receive. Envy is almost
indistinguishable from pride at times. Seeing ourselves as we are and not comparing
ourselves to others is something that is often times difficult to do.
I don't profess to know the what makes people the way that they are, but I have learned
that there are people in this world whose sole purpose is to retaliate with hurt because
someone has gravely hurt them and caused them pain. They deserve empathy.
