I'm not offended by your posts, just confused by what you're trying to accomplish. I don't mind being reminded to be sensitive and kind, although sometimes an appropriate response to a post is to gently challenge and confront the other person as tactfully as possible. Confrontation is also a time-honored intervention principle with people who have addictions and similar types of obsessive-compulsive thought processes.

Although I may have gently challenged Jo, it was NOT because I perceived her as obsessing along a track of unproductive thinking errors and felt the need to intervene. Actually, I was impressed by several things she has posted recently on NewDayNews and I wanted to engage in an exchange. In the year or so that I've been reading her posts, I've seen a lot of insight and personal growth.
