I dated this girl a long time back that I'm reminded of when someone is intentionally abrasive. I can hear her bitchy little voice lashing out at everything and anyone around her. She was really cute but she had the personality of a constipated badger.
I hear what people say for a reaction. It doesn't get past me but when I smile, yeah, I can be dense and all but it's because I'm seeing right through it. I see where it's coming from and why it's said. If I maintain that relationship it's because I see beyond it. Above it... and I may even be gaining strength through your weakness.
Open your eyes (all three)... you are wasting precious time.
