Looking back over my responses and yours as well, I realized I misinterpreted your words and intents. I agree that I responded condescendingly in response to your words, which I was perceiving to be condescending. I don’t have any issue admitting fault and I apologize for insulting you.
The reason why I respond is because you take the time to give me thoughtful responses and it doesn’t feel right to simply ignore your words. It is not because I feel the need to have the last word as you stated in your last writing. I am interested in hearing more of you what you have to say and maybe we can start fresh. As I said I never believed that my experiences or perspective were categorical truths or emblematic of everyone’s. I think we both have been at fault of making assumptions and misinterpreting each other’s words and intents.
Maybe we can try this: we could restart this discussion in a more focused manner and see where that goes?
