    And to bring it around from a man who speaks and lives it...

    And most people do (combine heart and head).

    MOST people are not either wet piles of nearly-incapable mush, nor robots.

    So there's really no problem here that I can see, except the whole "My feelings are okay, as long as I make them sound angry/irritated/scornful, but yours aren't because...well, they're yours, so I'll make sure they sound maudlin/weepy/ridiculous even if they aren't...in fact, even if they never even happened but I want to insist they did."

    I mean as long as some of us are talking illogic here. ;) IMO, that POV pretty much takes the cake on that score.

    Lol Mushy robots! I am trying to picture that in my head.

    No, I listed these as two separate things. :)

    I'm sure there must be mushy robots, though. Or fuzzy ones, anyway.

    You are right. I pictured mashed potatoes shaped into a robot. Strange I know.

    Fuzzy ones = Toy Furbies?

    Lol :-) I drank too much coffee.

    In my short existence on this planet, if you often can't see something (bullying, sensitivity, crazy) it's because you're the one. Not saying this is true in all cases.

    I second crazy. :D.

    We all have baggage and past hurts. Things people say bring these to the surface and people in turn become defensive- not really towards who or what was actually said- but the hurt feelings that are being resurfaced. It's like we revert back to that memory/trauma and lash back as a defense mechanism. It's important to remember that we don't make people feel a certain way.We are in charge and in control of our own feelings, no one else's.
