That does not indicate insanity and it is only a line from a Stephen King movie though i am not positive it originated there but would not surprise me.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I'm not just speaking about parents. I'm speaking about teachers, coaches, and anybody else who freely comments (positively or negatively) about a person's abilities. Nobody deserves to be talked down to. The best thing my mother ever taught me was to not allow anyone to walk on me and I have always stuck up for myself. I can handle constructive criticism and welcome it because I can learn from it. If someone speaks to me in an abusive manner, I have no problems telling them where to go and what to do when they get there. I truly have no tolerance for it and nobody should.
People tend to ridicule others for their mistakes, not that they haven't made their own mistakes, but even if not, why ridicule something that is necessary?

It is on rare occasion that I follow a link posted on a forum, especially on places such as ATS, but I did this time and found that to be accurate. There was a time when I noticed that I had become tired and the purpose of such appeared so that I would be more willing to accept what I was reading. That is in a tired state the mind is less likely to put information through the full logical considerations, or simply, information marches in with less resistance.
I noticed this then, but since I had not noticed ever since I figured perhaps I was mistaken. Clearly I was not, it did happen one more time after a facebook comment that I had planned on removing anyway. After the comment the sensation was significantly more intense, causing serious nausea.
