If you were treating the open wounds of accident victims you would realize that the most gentle, well-meaning touch could send patients reeling. You would not be offended if someone you were seeking to help lashed out in pain with almost involuntary action. You would half expect it. But imagine the confusion if the wounds were invisible and the person looked uninjured. Consider the further complication if in that person’s experience everyone who had tried to help (and how does he know you will be any different?) had in their ignorance done little but inflict pain.
That’s the norm for someone who is hurting inside.
Emotionally wounded people cannot help but be highly sensitive. Words hit them like whips. It is vital that they be treated verbally with the careful tenderness you would use if you were dressing gaping physical wounds. Once we understand the seriousness of emotional wounds, it’s surprisingly easy to employ the [compassionate] graces of turning the other cheek and using the soft answer that turns away wrath. When we realize an outburst is just the pain talking, we no longer take it to heart. Only a fool takes personally the actions of someone drunk with pain.
I started writing some sci-fi with Fleischer in it. May (definitely) involve robots. I’ll post more as I write it, if inspiration keeps striking.
So I finally got in the mood to write something. Critique is more than welcome.
With a penchant for floating on its side to soak up the rays, the Mola mola is better known as the ocean sunfish, although its Latin name refers to its resemblance to a millstone. Growing to around 10ft in length, it is the heaviest bony fish in the sea, but happily it views humans with friendly curiosity
