The therapist that I spoke to said that I have to change the way the things that people say affect me, as well as how I respond to them. I have been really thinking about this and I have come up with a response. tell me what you think.
"I know my situation makes you uncomfortable, and you don't know what to say or how to respond, but thank you for your concern and just keep me in your prayers" (all the while saying in my head SCREW YOU).
What do you think? Is that "appropriate" enough?
Where is my expected end?
