In light of what just occured between me and Lil Princess.....I'm considering leaving here for good. It is so fucking ugly how disagreements can destroy what could be a lovely friendship.
OMG!!! It just registered...what you said.
LP would be the first person to stop taking things personally and welcome you back. She is lovely. And you are as well.
Bite the bullet you two.
And Janet...you have got to realize that arguing gives your life some spice...you are doing an intellectual roller-derby as it were...
You might as well get accustomed to teetering on the brink of dissent when you go head-to-head with people...and when you try to flee at the last minute...you know that conversation just got started... You can't avoid the bad side of arguments hon.
I don't hate her I just feel so bad that my little thing hurt her so much. I didn't mean it like that at all. It was more of a question I should have worded it better like "Is the south a bad place for women?" that's how I would do it if i could redo it. Just I'm such an idiot when I don't take my bipolar meds.
I just PMd her about it...she will likely get back to you in person or on this post...
Not to worry. I'm sure she can rise above it.
I just really didn't think when I posted. I really just wanted to see conservatives whine and complain. I know there are good people in the south. It's just when she went to the "you're a constant victim" thing It was like an arrow through my heart. I've just never seen her so upset as to go after me in the most personal part of my existance and just the fact that i drove her to that point is going to haunt me
Aww... I understand.
Janet...LP told me she, too, is sorry. She will get back to you about that...probably tomorrow...
She blocked you but has unblocked you...and will contact you as soon as the block wears off...xo.
I'm so happy to hear that. I just it honestly hurt me more than anything that's happened on this site. I tried to delete the post but its been past the time I guess. I wish I could repost it as a question like "Is the south a bad place to be a woman" then it's focused on the discussion rather than the implication
Thanks Oz...I agree...
I agree. It happens here on Amirite. In a small way...although still devastating...
I feel like I should leave. This just ruined my entire day. Its funny how even getting a job isn't enough to erase the negative feelings that come with someone you admire hating you over something you thought was minor
The same thing has happened to me. Long time friends....that's what hurts.
Hon...just think of the worst thing in your life that's ever happened...friends dying...pets dying...etc... This doesn['t even come close.
When you are 90 you will wonder WTF you were thinking...
So why did it ruin your entire day. That's about you... Are you so fragile that that can happen.
Actually some days are very fragile. It's good to stay away from people on those days.:)
Good advice, Sukie! One of these days I'll do as you say. lol
It's because I've had so little people on my side in my life, I've hardly been able to hold friends in high school and that lead to me being socially awkard and not have those "old time buddies" and then I lost even more friends who didn't believe I was raped, and all of that just carved out the fact that I value friends, acquaintances, and just people over everything else. I'd rather be flat out broke and homeless but have tons of friends than be rich and powerful with no friends.
You have people on your side. It's not easy to see that, tho...when you are in an inconsolable...state...
Life is too short for that.
Sometimes that's how it works out. Now...I've been disagreeing with someone but they seem to take it personally. Granted...I could always phrase something more tactfully. That's not easy for me to even think of doing. I like this person...and had hoped that we could rise above it...and perhaps have a spirited discussion...intermixed with some comedy...but alas...it seemed to have struck a bad nerve.
Most people need to be agreed with. Even in RL.
So, did she rip you a new one? Or, are you passive aggressively getting back at her here?
Otherwise we would function as an amorphous mass.
Otherwise we would be an amorphous mass.
Like Yours I would never rub salt in your wounds just because we disagree how low can you go?
besides you said things about california so I can't say things about other states?
Those are the one I ignore.
