I recently deleted a post about someone who invaded my Facebook account and directed his homophobia at me out of respect for a friend of mine whose account he used.  However, I want this person to know he doesn't control my life.  I also want this person to know that he should leave me alone to live my life as I choose.  I don't need him or his view of religion to tell me how to live my life.  Leave me alone.  Respect my privacy as I have shown respect for your family by removing my original post.

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values

and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false

and the false with the true.

Hello Ron,

I'm sorry you had to endure the rudeness of the guy who commented on the men dancing the tango. He's one of those people who shoot their mouth off without any regard to a person's feelings. What they don't realize is not everything is as it seems, but their rudeness stays in our minds & hearts forever. Oh they might try to apologize in their lame way, not caring that the pain has worked its way into our soul. Their apology is just to get them off the hook & never sincere. For some strange reason people like that feel threatened by things they don't understand & never will even try to.

I could say try & let it go but that will never work. My wish for him is to feel that pain & look back on what his words do to others. But again, they are oblivious to their cruel tongue.

Have a "Happy Thanksgiving!"

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful remarks. You are right about people like that spouting off and not realizing the hurt they cause. What was especially hurtful with this situation was that he is the husband of my co-worker us uses her FB account. Now he has affected my relationship with my co-worker who is a wonderful person. I can't help but think she will side with him now because he is her husband. His "apology", such as it was, wasn't really an apology but justification in his mind for insulting me.

I know there are hateful people in this world. I try to avoid them as much as possible. But when they get in my face I throw it right back at them, which is probably something I shouldn't do. But it isn't in my makeup to turn around and meekly go away.

I've had too much negativity in my recent posts. I will endeavor to make my future posts more positive.

Thanks again for your support. You are a very kind person. It is people like you that I give me hope. I am very thankful this Thanksgiving for my friends and relatives. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
