Years ago after watching a movie with a group of people, we started talking about current events.
I wasn’t towing the conversational line correctly, so I was asked by someone, “You mean you don’t believe all 17 of the US intelligence agencies?”
When I said, “no, I don’t believe any of them,” their eyes got big as saucers and I heard the wind rush out of their lungs.
They stammered, “well, well, well, I’m so glad you’re here” while grimacing and shaking.
I knew at that moment my time there was drawing to a close. Sometimes I still go back, but I get a lot of gaslighting. One of them even said to me, “when people act like you do, my experience is that it’s usually internal problems.”
Yep! lol. Glad to have those internal problems.
