Re: attempting to be a voice of reason...

I am only one person -- there are several others who get along fine with one another, but not with me. One versus several -- who is it better not to have around for the overall harmony of the group?

No one has yelled at you, told you you are being stupid, or said that they can't be friends with you. Not until you became hostile. You are choosing to be a "political problem" by insisting that everyone must hate you, because no one is listening to you. In reality, people have contacted you and apologized to you. You have responded with harshness and anger.

I'm not saying you don't have a right to be angry. I'm saying that it seems to be natural to you to jump to victim status at the earliest opportunity, thereby creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Life does not have to be like this. Things can change if you want them to. But you have to look at it and SEE it. Right now it's like you're doing anything to NOT see it. I'll explain in the other post.

Re: attempting to be a voice of reason...

Well -- here I think we have a difference of opinion as to what constitutes an apology.

Saying "I'm sorry you were upset by this situation" to me is NOT the same as saying "I'm sorry that things that I did made you upset." To me the first is much, much weaker -- not really an apology at all. It is more an expression of regret at hurt feelings, but (to me) not taking any responsibility for having done anything to cause those hurt feelings. To me, that is not an apology.

If I had received a sincere "I'm sorry my actions upset you" apology, my reaction would have been different.

I have also only heard from one person here -- not the other. At all.

I'm not saying you don't have a right to be angry.

Thank you very much for having said that!

The feedback I had been receiving from others was that because I was a secondary, I had no right whatsoever to be upset. And that attitude got me even more upset.
