Feeling sorry for those who reject us

(imported from yahoo 360)

I'm sad.

I'm not so much sad for myself as sad for someone who I recently invited to be my friend. She accepted, then, a few hours later, sent me a message saying that she couldn't be my friend because she couldn't handle my being a crossdresser.

It's exactly the sort of reaction that I wrote about trying to avoid a few weeks ago.

At least she had the honesty to admit that she had a problem with me, so perhaps there is hope that she will be able to change her attitude in the future.

I hope that, if she reads this (which I doubt), she won't be insulted. I bear her no ill will, and I genuinely feel sorry for her.

It reminds me of a line from the book "Illusions" by Richard Bach: "Argue for your limitations and sure enough, they're yours."
