Well it's been a while, and I have had time to think about what I might have done to make someone want to chastise me in public. It's been a while since that happened to me last. Even the angry nuns in nursing school, 32 years ago never did that.
So, I meditated on it for a long time. I felt hurt and angry, knowing that I wouldn't do that to someone. I would probably talk to them privately. As one person did for me, and I certainly understand where she was coming from. It WAS a misunderstanding that this all happened.
Still, I have learned the valuable lesson to pull back and not give as much of myself to anyone, anymore, even those asking for opinions. Thanks for that.
