There was a time when I would have felt the same way. But now whether or not I have an email, whether or not someone responds to a post I have made or even whether or not someone agrees with me no longer is an issue. I think I finally am secure enough in that I know who I am (I am finally happy with myself) and that what others think does not shake me any longer. It becomes that we can agree to disagree, people either like me or they don't, people either agree with me or they don't...in any of those cases it still does not change what I feel, what I know and how I view things. I now can be inaccurate in what I saw because the connection wasn't there but it will not devastate me. We are, after all...still humans.
Interesting topic Bruce, thank you!
Blessings, peace and light...
