Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Speaking as one of your brothers (self-appointed), I really think you should also consider whether your perception of what has happened is the only possible interpretation. What people said and what you thought they meant can be two different things.

I believe you began chivalrously as always, but found yourself in a frustrating crossfire that you took too personally. I believe this because I have experienced the same myself. As I have pointed out many times (and which has been rightly tossed back at me), the failure of a message to be understood is always the fault of the sender. When these failures are compounded by all senders, it might appear conspiratorial, when it is in fact a dynamic of the system and thus the fault of no individual or group of individuals.

It is no bad choice to be away for a while. Step back. Your heart is good and will recover with rest. I wish you would come back soon - not on some timetable - but when your true strength is again centred in the right place. Peace, brother.

You can't be me, I'm taken
