How many times have you tried to talk to someone about something that matters to you, tried to get them to see it the way you do? And how many of those times have ended with you feeling bitter, resenting them for making you feel like your pain doesn't have any substance after all? - Only Forward, Michael Marshall Smith via lirion
(nobody "makes" you feel any way at all, however acceptance and rejection are the two sides of the coin used in human transaction. you take a gamble when you make the gift of sharing. sometimes you lose. sometimes the cost of that can bankrupt you.)
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. - Carl Gustav Jung via FB@Nicky
