Thread Name: When your group disagrees wth you...
Subject: RE: When your group disagrees wth you...
sorcha: funny! but i really do like her. i would become relegated to the world she shuns if i did as you (teasingly) suggest.

tonyk: you make some fine points. it's so true that if something happens to us to recall earlier episodes of distress, it can put us right back there where we were then.

sometimes, all we can do is to tell others what happened to us. there's healing in the telling.

which brings us right back to the reason these songs were written and sung! how'd i manage that?

i like your suggestion as to what i might say. i had thought of giving her a sad look and saying 'ah, you don't understand'...but that implies that my understanding is more perfect than hers (superiority) which is what stung me in her admonition. yup. hafta watch that stuff.
