The pot calling the kettle black on “taking things personally and already have a biased view on how people should act” So sorry you’ve been hurt by dishonest people, people usually advi\sed based on their own revelations.
Allow me to recommend you brush up on simple NLP, your wording (the use of your pronouns) is all wrong especially if you’re trying to connect/convince me of anything valuable.
“This did not sit right with me” NEGATIVE
"I think you are going to find a lot of dishonest people…" NEGATIVE
"I hope you don’t return in 6 months…" NEGATIVE
One thing for sure, you’re more focused on yourself and by the looks of it need to raise your standards. It’s been known that depressed people use the word “I” much more often than emotionally stable people. People who are lower in status use “I” much more frequently. All your words provide me a window to your soul. I’m a deception machine, completely understand psychology and having someone go over my head is seriously unlikely, invariably it’s me who will elicit what is needed from people.
Hope you learned something, I’m sure you learned something.
