RE: Pope John Paul II taught me how too forgive

In the cold war of the early 1990, four Titans of History came together and produced the greatest and most benign counter-revolution of modern history and it couldn't have happened without them.Enormous risks to them and their political standing. I believe it was a selfless and a remarkable act of forgiveness!

Reagan can claim the most important achievement of statesmanship of any American President
Gorbachev of any Russian
Pope John Paul II of any Pope
Margaret Thatcher of any Prime Minister

RE: Apologies

I think this is where you have to rise above it all. If you are feeling hurt then you believe 100% that you were wronged in some way. If someone steps on your toe accidentally the pain can be horrendous, yet, when they say sorry you immediately forgive them because you know it was an accident and an apology sufficed. However, if someone deliberately hurt you, it goes way deep; an apology is of no use.

So accepting an apology is reinforcing bad behavior and it will not rescind your pain. You have two choices. Give the other person some space for them to think about it and they may eventually seek your forgiveness.

You can only forgive someone if they seek it... If you are working together you must lay your cards on the table, the other person must make some sort of gesture that shows genuine remorse and that they should seek your forgiveness! If you have to totally dismiss that toxic person from your life you can rescind your pain by making it a gift to others.....helping others who are going through the same thing you went through.

When someone deliberately hurts you and have not sought forgiveness, you must realise that you are not at fault so stop continuing to hurt yourself. Treat it as a broken finger and watch it heal.... conversing

Pope John Paul was an extraordinary human being before he ever became a Pope.

I found that this documentary was well researched and very insightful.
We do not always have to agree with others beliefs but we can expand our thinking from listening to others whose beliefs are alien to ours. conversing

RE: Do men take Viagra because their partners don't turn them on

A couple, both aged 56, decided to take their 18 yr old lovers on a paassionate night away.
The husband arrives home in the morning but it was almost midnight by the time his wife returned. When quizzed by the husband, she explained that 18 goes into 56 many more times as opposed to the other way around!!! ... professor

RE: What Advice Would You Give To C/S Members On Here!

To be mindful....
Oversharing as a trend is in its element; so many people are insisting that everyone must know everything about our wonderful us. Oversharing they believe is so haute couture

High levels of narcissism are rewarded in one’s head. We believe that everyone is so interested in us and our opinions and fake lifestyle. The self-conscious are looking at the beautiful lives that their peers choose to display without filters. This can leave them feeling inadequate and like they don’t quite measure up.

Rather than creating a community of like-minded people it further pits us against one another to be king of the Castle. It is a competition about who has the best opinions, the best ideas, the best values, the most likes or even the best life. However, what is on display is very little genuine insight. Instead it is fanciful thoughts invented by the owner to upset the unsuspecting and measured in views and engagements: to demean the unsuspecting. We are so busy inventing our own fake lives online; an avatar of the person that we wish we were, rather than who we are, in reality, and not having to venture from no further than ours living-rooms to do so. Perhaps, we even start to believe it about ourselves; we are being sucked in unconsciously.

It is a symptom of communities offline being unable to challenge the out of control juggernaut that is social media coupled with the remarkable rise in narcissism. If this narcissistic sharing overload is ever done with, perhaps we will all stop needing the constant validation of others.

RE: What would you do...

Well Jac if someone physically pushed me, it is an assault and I would call the police.
Shouting or swearing by a Supervisor could mean they have mental health issues or they have no idea how to manage those in their care, (in both cases they shouldn't be employed in that capacity, ever) so report it officially to your line Manager and Union. Unfortunately, petty squabbles can happen occasionally among colleagues, if it is a case of bullying then it needs to be reported officially to your line manager.

RE: Did your ex ever start arguments for no apparent reason?

Women still have much left to do before we are even close to being liberated from the shackles of patriarchal privilege. There is yet more unpaid work we women undertake when we take on a man... 7 extra hours unpaid per week to be precise ... what a liability when he considers his woman to be a drama queen, a feminist... Playing mind games? She is probably multi tasking in her head whilst you single tasking with your Remote.... As I already informed you women value a protector, a real man about the house! professor
