and also for the record (although I don't think I was all that hard on OC) I DO feel very strongly about people owning their own part in any problem. You have to take the credit and the blame for your contribution. It takes two to tango, etc. I also believe in living in the real world, not in a fairy tale. No one is perfect. And people who claim the longest and loudest that they are tend to be the ones who are the most flawed, imo.

mol, the words combative and inflexible come to mind. Also the wallowing in self pity was a bit much, it just went on and on, in a bitter and vindictive way. At some point you have to cut the cord and stop giving the acts of someone else so much weight and power in your life and psyche.

Yes, I was always waiting for her to set herself free, and use her energies and talents and anger to contribute to herself and those round her in a positive way.

If you are trying to make me feel uncomfortable by comparing me to a former forum member, it is working. I feel uncomfortable now, even though past events here have nothing to do with me.

If making me feel uncomfortable was not your intention, then I'm sorry I took it the wrong way.

M wasn't the one to raise this, and was reflecting on OC.

I wonder if you had (as I suggested a while ago), or would now, introduce yourself properly, that might ease some feelings of discomfort all round, and be a basic courtesy.

Crispina, As mol said, I am not the one who made the initial allegation that you were OC, nor did I weigh in at any time as to what I thought either way regarding that issue. I was merely replying to the ongoing conversation about THAT poster, and was making no comment about YOU one way or the other. If you got uncomfortable about that, well, you had best take a look at why you're so sensitive, cause I sure didn't do anything to warrant any kind of feelings about you. However, I'm not afraid to speak my mind about OC, who caused a lot of damage here.

Crispina, please feel welcome in the forum. I for one have found your posts to be intriguing and seemingly earnest.

When you see it coming, duck!

TG, for what it's worth, I've never seen as wallowing, the way I did OC. Nor did I ever think of you as bitter or vindictive, and I definitely got that feeling from her. And...I LOVE that passage for Knight's Tale. It has always spoken to how I live. I have seen the slow and determined nature of your progress. It is much like my own in that way...slow, determined, relentless in a fashion.
