You've said something very insulting. Especially towards people I've met. Some people I'm in communication with, and know.
I mean man, you insulted your own Shihan. Stop bashing your head. Just be more respectful to seniors.
I'm not trying to be mean...what you said was just wrong, and these men and women's character shouldn't be in question.
You tell yourself whatever stories you want to, Maggie. You have been all along, and you will continue to do so, no matter what I say. You tell yourself whatever stories gratify whatever need it is you have, and you tell yourself that they're true. You keep right on doing that. I, however, don't have to listen to them.
