Everything is *always* about Barry, dummy.
It has been for almost twenty years. ________________________________ From: "authfri...@yahoo.com" <authfri...@yahoo.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Friday, February 14, 2014 4:37 PM Subject: [FairfieldLife] RE: Test: Can you spot the HYPOCRISY in this Barry Wright post? You mean, just like Barry didn't take a lot of umbrage or express outrage this morning? How blind can you be? And yes, this is about Barry, very much so. You realize Judy, that this is not about Barry. If you feel you have been misrepresented, then you simply correct the misrepresentation or it stands. Doesn't really require taking a lot of umbrage or expressing outrage. Just set the record straight and move on. Doesn't have to be a lot of conditions attached. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <authfriend@...> wrote: > > >Since when has Barry ever retracted or even acknowledged any of his lies about >me?

Anyone who has paid attention for some time also knows that our "sessions" were conducted over coffee at Downtown Subscription, our mutually favorite coffee shop in Santa Fe, not in a therapist's office. Anyone with a longer memory will remember me posting that I have only seen a real therapist once in my life, back when I was 16 or 17, and my parents forced me to see him. ( That was a fun story in itself, because the guy was an asshole who was actually served with a malpractice lawsuit while I was waiting in his office to see him, and then acted like such an asshole in our session that I unloaded on him, told him exactly what I thought of him, and who afterwards as a result refused to ever see me again.

She can continue to believe all the fantasies she's developed about both of them without fear of contradiction, because she's never exposed herself to the possibility of contradiction. Both of these guys -- or her impressions of them -- are tucked away in an elaborate fantasy cubbyhole in her mind, placed on a pedestal of honor there, and because she never has (or will) encounter the reality of them, she gets to call this fantasy "truth." Anyone who disagrees with the fantasy is a "liar." >>> >>>As has been pointed out here, Judy has arguably the *least* actual "hands >>>on" spiritual experience of anyone on this forum.

Challenging her idealized notions of Robin are (from her point of view) like attacking *her*, so of course she has to "take them seriously." If anyone were to believe more objective points of view expressed here about the guy, they'd begin to challenge her posturing as "the expert."

He has to deal with certain factual material if he is writing about science for clients. If there other places in his life for such concepts as facts and truth, it probably is not here on FFL. This place is for the insane; perhaps there are a few amateur sociologists and researchers hanging in here collecting data, but who might they be? >>> >>> >>> >>>
