Unfortunately some people lack the capability or willingness to exert the level of empathy required to put themselves into the shoes of others, so to
speak. Some people are not cognizant of how their actions, behaviors, and words do effect people.
Many of them seem to posting in this thread along with the opening post. What are you going to do to them to teach them a lesson?
In some cases it takes them becoming the recipient of the same standards they apply to how their interpersonal relationship skills are applied
to others. No, not permanently. Just long enough to plant the seed of doubt and question their own expectations of others especially if their
expectations are unattainable.
And you are the person to do that? Have you lived such a pure life then? How about the OP? Is the OP so flawless that he is the arbiter of what is
fair play and what is not in AIDS gossip? I would love to know how so many of you came to be of position where you are duty bound to rub other
people's foibles in their faces. Like I said, I do not watch FOX news and Shep does not bother me. That must mean you watch FOX news just so Shep can
bother you? I sure as hell do not feel like I need to teach him any lessons. Can you tell me why you feel you do?
For them to exert their will and have expectations of others, first they should make sure they themselves can live up to the expectations they
place on others.
and if they do not? Sean Hannity disgusts me way more with the crap he spews that I actually have to hear. How are you prioritizing this or is Shep
the only wrong you feel the need to right?
You used a quote from Ghandi when you said "An eye for an eye makes the whole world go blind".
My counterpoint is a quote from Ghandi: "Be the change you want to see in the world".
Well what you are being is vindictive, gossipy, rumor milling, insulting, immature, etc. That is the change you want to be? Really, what you want is a
world full of people making up rumors about why other people look ill? That is what you are doing so if you are being the change you want to be, no
thanks. I do not want MORE rumor mongering out of spite. I find that undesirable.
Everything I was talking about in the first paragraph of this post were issues discussed in a pretty well known book:
Which you apparently need to read again because there are pages and pages of how to be the bigger person, the better man, and succeed by rising above
in that book. I actually read it.
What a shame. I have starred every post of yours I have read.
Until this thread.
