that you cannot hear the emotion in the other persons voice, and you can't see their eyes.
I did not find Pacos post of yesterday at all offensive. Sometimes I read a post 2 and 3 times trying to feel out the meaning.
One frequent poster has a style different from the others. It is an example of a post that can be taken different ways. We all know his sense of humor and we view his posts as delightfully funny. But in a subtle way, he is setting us straight. It's a GOOD thing. But I always read these posts at least 3 times.
So, what am I missing in Paco's post? I just don't see it as a bad post.
Before responding to a contraversial post, we must try to understand where a person is coming from. Or where we are coming from. That's probably closer to the heart of this matter.
I have reacted badly to posts here, only to see some of them in a different light the next day, and then I feel stupid for having misread it.
Back to relationships. "They" say we must work hard at maintaining a good relationship, when in fact, it is ourselves that we must work on
