Hardly. Indeed, I never even knew about that. Wholesale destruction of plot and characterization, now...

I already endure far too much honest opinions of my life. I cannot imagine caring about other peoples' opinions when I am not alive any longer.

I hardly care about them now.

The reason people are critical of you isn't necessarily because they are targeting you as being particularly in need of criticism, but rather that you share more than anyone else and that always leaves room for commentary. If you share a problem in a room of mostly men, we're going to offer solutions. Merely listening is more of a female trait.

There is no such thing as enduring too much honesty. Our society has the opposite problem of not being tough enough to handle the truth, or brave enough to speak it.

Opinions should be taken to heart, not ignored. They are either untrue, which can be ignored, or true, which can be difficult, but necessary for development.

When I was in Germany there were about five of us singles that attended Church, but only one of us had a car, and it wasn't me. Church was half an hour away and I had difficulty finding a ride if the one Soldier with a car did not drive me, but if I said anything she would tell me that I was wrong, even if she knew absolutely nothing about the subject, my military specialty, what I studied in college, something else from my life before the Army, it did not matter. If I said anything she found a way of telling me that I was wrong.

She also always complained that she was lonely.

Eh. I will forgo the rest of that story.
