was talking about me!!
As you may have noticed, I don't "retreat" much . . . anytime - anywhere.
The subject, by the way, was much more complex than just "retreating". . . bad childhood memories that keep popping up and dictating how one interprets current events in one's life. We all have our bad memories, experiences and setbacks that flavor our actions and how we communicate.
Most of us aren't even aware of it. . . but the "shrinks" know!
