not sure why?
I WAS saying what I said with the best intentions. However I'm NOT going to repeat my (lengthy) explanations all over again. Just read the posts in response to the criticisms. At the end of the day, I don't really care whether you believe me or not. *I* know what I wanted to say, *I* know it WASN'T meant with malice. The people here who know ME too, have mailed me to say they see what I was trying to say....whether I managed it or not.
BTW, I CARE about Carl, I worry that he will get sucked so deep into this depression that he won't get out. I speak from experience, suffering from depression myself (though not as bad as Carl's). Sometimes the usual platitudes are not enough. You need people to get you to help yourself dig and claw your way back.
As I already stated, as much as I worry about him, I will NOT be posting to Carl again. I worry that the platitudes he's given will not help him, but I have learnt a harsh lesson not to try to help no matter how much I may want to.
Hypocrisy isn't my bag, I doubt if it's yours either. Let's just agree to beg to differ and leave it at that. I will NOT engage in a flame war. I try to help people. period. You can believe that, or not, as you choose.
Like I said, I will not bother Carl ever again. No matter how much I worry about him.I hope that is sufficient.
BTW, I would never propose to be a sherriff, samaritan or anything else. I leave THAT to the professionals.
Take care and God bless,
