I hate to be the one…
But I’m gonna.
It’s an assumption John Hopkins that these are their reasons. Your reasons are all acceptable and neither right or wrong. They are valid.
The people you’re talking about do not see the interaction the way you do.
And that is also okay.
Most definitely valid.
I understand that your thought is that you weren’t being offensive — because from inside yourself you weren’t trying to offend.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean you weren’t offensive to someone else. I’ve been blocked before. I was blocked once after AGREEING with someone and trying to be supportive by providing a name to look up.
Well, that person heard a nasty tone inside when she read my words and blocked me. It sucks, but I wasn’t about to apologize when she didn’t give me the benefit of the doubt. We were friends. I felt I had earned the benefit of the doubt.
That’s not how she saw things.
And that is okay. I don’t have to like it, but I do have to respect it.
Know what I mean?
