that is incredible……I’ve heard of people walking on the other side of the street but never verbal abuse like that in public.

Who do these people think they are?

you are pushing my triggers now.

well when others around me applauded me, i guess that couple felt rather embarrassed

but they and others still sneer at me if they see me in shop ctr etc

(they were the main people who ‘told on me’ with the christian schools – asking me to leave)

and to think, i did not even go to the same church as them lol

thankfully i dont see them every week

oh well

such is life

may god forgive them for their harsh, cruel and judgmental attitude…they certainly don’t remind us of the Jesus we read about in the gospels.

They do remind us however of some other people in the gospels……anyone want to guess who I might be speaking about.

Does it start with Phara and end in see?

I’ve walked down the street holding hands with the person I was seeing and never got yelled at or condemed. I’m sorry to hear that was the case.

My trigger (well, one) is when I come across someone who is only interested in what they can get out of me. I try and choose my friends based on whether they take as much interest in my life as I do in theirs. I’m sad to find there aren’t many.

It’s happened to me when I was in Brisbane city with a bunch of my friends. It’s happened in local supermarkets, and I’ve heard customers at work saying things as they walk away.

one of my triggers is when people say ‘homosexual lifestyle’

My Triggers are:

1. Straight people who stereotypes Gay people

2. Gay people who stereotypes other Gay people

3. When people say Gay people can’t be Christians

4. When people discriminate

5. When people attacks my nationality, and stereotypes my home country 😛

Its good to know triggers, but more importantly, how do you deal with them 🙂
