Re: Power and Compassion

Hi Rob, I never said they were jerks, just that I didn't necessarily like them.

Not everyone we dislike is a jerk. Sometimes all it takes is just that they are different. Sometimes they just don't coddle us. Sometimes they just don't give us the respect we *think* we are due.

Jerks are people who set out intentionally to hurt me or injure me. On or off the mat.

Best,
Ron
