Re: verbal abuse from a teacher
Well, just thought I'd check back in, now that I've been at the new dojo for a few months.
Let me just say, dear God, what was wrong with me? Why was I so blind? I love Aikido so much more now! I am learning something new every day! Thanks everyone!
On a side note, I do think that the Stanford Prison Experiment does explain why I stayed for so long in such a negative environment.
