RE: Revenge or forgiveness

Thankyou Fifi, and it's good to see you too. hug

It depends, Boban. For the jewellery which had sentimental value, I would call the police in a bid to get it back.

Otherwise, it's only stuff and nothing of great value.

Maybe on a practical, or emotional value they might need the stuff more than me.

The real transgression is the breach of trust and that's the bit which does harm and would require forgiveness.

As for forgetting, that would be foolish, not to mention impossible: I can remember your first posts on this site. laugh

RE: Revenge or forgiveness

Forgiveness is not a magnanimous act which I bestow on someone.

It's something I take for myself for my own healing.

The way I do that is by trying to understand why a person has committed their harmful act.

And I don't say that lightly: some things are really fookin' hard to forgive.

But it's a massive relief when it happens, enabling me to move on, sorting out the effect the transgression and transgressor has had on me.

The best form of revenge is to live well and break the cycle, so I don't harm others as a result of my negative experience.

I think there might be a bit of a long walk to freedom in there somewhere. It's a poignant, multipurpose and powerful phrase, I reckon.

RE: Now Hiring

Okay, I'll settle for a fish and chip supper washed down with a bottle of iodine, sitting on a midden, but I absolutely draw the line at non-brewed condiment on my chips. snooty

RE: Now Hiring

Okay, okay, a bag of chips washed down with a bottle of iodine, but I want real malt vinegar and a proper wall to sit on.

Blimey Track, I never thought you'd play hard to get. laugh

RE: Now Hiring

I was hoping more for a bottle of red wine with our first bag of fish and chips date, Track.

Potting mums...?

You'd get fired for that over here. laugh

Golly, are there people still alive who can remember full time contracts? laugh

I hope medical cover is included in the contract, Track. laugh

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

Uh huh, life is so very good, eh?

Well, you're going to have to begin somewhere, now you've said that! laugh

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

Sauce...?

You're giving me ideas, KB. Clearly, as a raging feminist, it'll have to be barbecue sauce.

Assuming there's going to be anything left to grill, of course.

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

KB, me old china! I was just thinking of you. hug

I'm good - moved house, changed jobs, gained a gaggle of grandchildren through no fault of my own. laugh

You?

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

A new friend is never a replacement, but I hear ya Bodey. I'm still houndless myself.

What you said implies to me that a babbling fool can't have true faith - need there be a pecking order?

Babbling, or sane, fool, or genius, of faith of any kind, or none, kind, or unkind...most of us are many things and all of us are human.

Even the hounds. wink giggle

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

Yeah, I'm going incognito John, in the hope that Lee Charming won't recognise me. I'm after his real man sausage for my lesbian plaything, you see. dunno

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

Hello, Molly Cork! hug

I hadn't noticed I'd been away in order to be welcomed back, but I supposeI have. Thankyou. laugh

Things good with you?

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

Hello Bodey, old friend! I see you have a new one. Give him a cwtch from me, eh? hug

I'm not sure I know what strong, or weak mindedness is, or whether they're concepts which necessarily correlate with faith. Does it matter what a person's state of mind is with respect to faith?

The original post just struck me as a shot in the foot sort of an argument. laugh

RE: Is being religious a strong minded person with faith, or for the weak minded?

If someone has a strong faith and are therefore strong minded, why would they be concerned about being called weak minded? confused

RE: GF Texting Pissing You Off?

I'm glad it's not just me who finds me funny. grin

RE: GF Texting Pissing You Off?

Gluten Free texting?

How about Vegan texting? Y'know, like 'show us yr carrot, honey sugar?'

RE: Which one of these freaks you out the most?

At least there's no chance of the forums becoming animated.

RE: No proof of collusion

The wording of the judge's statement will have been deliberate.

Plainly, an opening has been left for the fat lady to sing..

RE: A family

Up until three months ago I lived with my daughter and granddaughter.

The novelty of not having people burst into my room at all times of the day and night hasn't worn off yet. laugh

RE: Denmark approves burka ban

Miwagi, to subject women to head covering is the same as subjecting women to non-head covering.

Feminism is the movement for equal rights for women. You can't have equal rights for women without having equal rights for everyone. If everyone has equal rights then, within the bounds of harming no other, that allows self-determination.

Denmark is contravening feminist ideology with its ban. To be non-discriminatory there should be equal rights for grown ups to choose their own clothes when they get up in the morning.

RE: Denmark approves burka ban

To make it non-discriminatory, countries and people who think it's okay to ban head coverings should be banned from covering their bottoms.

RE: Character Traits.....

Maybe speaking one's mind in a way which feels safe and learning to deal with the consequences is useful practice for face to face interactions.

RE: Should there be a license to use the internet?

Golly Riz, that's really rather discriminatory of you.

It would lead to politicianism.
