Way I see it, I'm doing people a favor when I distance myself when I have mean, judging thoughts of them. That's a sign that a need of mine isn't being met and I need to take care of that first or I truly cannot be of help to anyone else. I'm just a human and there are times when I have anger, judgments and the whole catastrophe. You're not weak, Amber ~ you're human! Welcome to the party. emoticon

I totally agree with the both of you. But it does not mean that we are mean. We are just more informed than others

We are not required to be saints, Amber. I keep reminding myself of the phrase.... progress not perfection. It sounds as if you handled most of the frustration within. I agree that the triple threat of uninformed, mean and arrogant is a challenging one for someone trying to help.

1 - I have a difficult time mustering up empathy for someone who is not able to watch live tv on their ipad when they don't have a wireless service on their ipad. This difficulty I have isn't really because I am a mean or cruel person but because I lack empathy for people who are both uninformed and mean. If you're just uninformed, I can usually deal with that. If you're mean, but informed, well I can usually make my way into your heart. If you're both, I don't know, I have issues with you. I'm not a saint.

2 - If you have shown yourself to be both mean, ignorant, and arrogant enough to laugh at me and mock me while I am giving you a very accurate and specific answer to your inquiry, I might not have much empathy for you. It's true. I am weak that way.

Have a great day y'all.
