RE: How does one handle uncivilized savages?
Hey Diana, I want to thank you for sharing your opinions and thoughts because it allowed me to articulate some things I feel very deeply and strongly about that are obviously on the other side of the norm. I've said what I feel like I can to do my best to share my point of view on this subject in this moment.
I do want to clarify that I didn't feel as if the man had come on to me sexually in any way what-so-ever, in fact he compared me to his sister in the same breath that you assume that I assumed sexual intention. To be fair though, my personal profession that I use to support myself is that of a waitress - where I must learn to and act upon being the same giving personality with all types, and if I couldn't handle minor flirting, I wouldn't have a job. As it is, I guess my point is again that we shouldn't totally shut people out for one faux pas, or assumed faux pas. Repeated faux pas, sure, but we definitely shouldn't blame others for the mistakes that they didn't make - I didn't want to be afraid of that man because there have been a small handful of men in his situation who were dangerous. I especially thought I shouldn't be afraid of that man after he started saying kind and affectionate (nonsexual!) things. I had to trust him as a Creator in his own right, and in my ability to co-create a situation out of love.
Again, thank you for allowing me to project my lesson onto you by engaging me in this discussion. I realize my point of view is in most things, on the bonkers side of the fence, so I appreciate you letting me know that you were uncomfortable by how I approached it.
There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love.
