goody2shuz - I am still confused. Can you dumb it down a shade? And other people should chime in to. I had a anger managment therapist insenuate that I was manipulative after I said that my feelings were hurt because of .... and I think I've heard a counselor say I can't blame my problems onto people when I was talking about how a certain supervisor was being rude and arrogant to me but in no way did it hinder my work performance, I only felt really angry and depressed about it. So I was confused for months and I still am lol. What is blame and manipulation really and what is flat out I am angry because so and so is being rude and bothersome.
