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

I as well as others were also able to see that I was being baited by this same writer. (I know you did not -- that is why I am pointing this out here.) I did not take kindly to that, particularly when the entry in her journal belied her seemingly-kind comment -- there was a discord there that I pointed out, point by point. I admit to being both bitter and sarcastic at times there, but I felt that I was being provoked and needed to reply to her comment to point out the inconsistencies of her statements. The dissonance between what she said in one place versus what she said in another really grated on my nerves, especially when she was being dismissive of my point of view.

Interestingly enough, even that person that you say agrees with you says,"Kinda clever to use your LJ to do it, but only in the way that it seems you started it..." Even the person that agrees with you can see the argument that you started it.

As for her inconsistencies in her entry, you yourself have within the past week told me how you made decisions that you knew you should not have made, but you made them because you were so emotionally carried away that you made those decisions anyway, knowing that you shouldn't.

How can you fault someone else for doing the exact same thing?

I'm not saying it's right or wrong (in her case or yours). What I'm saying is, if you're willing to forgive it without a second thought in your own case, you should extend that to other people.

I mean, honestly, she even mentioned in her comment that maybe "we" should have spoken to you, as if it was even her responsibility, which it isn't. The only person with a responsibility to speak to you about it was him, seeing as he was the one in the situation with you (and whether or not he needed to speak to you at all is the root of the problem. That matter wasn't discussed and resolved clearly.) Anger and hurt is flying all over the place at people who don't really deserve it.

And again, it's your right to feel that way...but not looking at these things and not seeing these things is not helping you.

Most of her post had nothing to do with you at all, instead it was about ritual. It occurred to me today what you had said about my adoption ritual...is it possible that this is all pushing an additional button that has to do with family and community?

Who says I've forgiven myself? Not me . . .

I'm more likely to forgive another's failings than my own faults.

and whether or not he needed to speak to you at all is the root of the problem. That matter wasn't discussed and resolved clearly.

I was informed of the decision as a fait accompli -- my only options were to accept or leave. I did my very best to accept, but failed. The situation ended up being more than I could bear.

It would have been nice to have been asked instead of informed -- to have been given an opportunity to be generous and giving instead of being forced to accept a situation, will I, nill I. If that had been done, things would most likely have been very, very different.

I can be very kind and generous when properly approached. No one saw fit to do that though. They didn't seem to think it either desirable or necessary.

Yes. And being excluded from it. Deliberately.

There is no place at the table for me.
