Doubling-Down, Pt 2 - Baseline
This is a long entry because I recently got confirmation of something I thought I knew. Did you know that you need a physical injury for cancer? You can't mentally will someone to get cancer, you have to have something actually injure you - a virus (HPV), a particle (asbestos, coal), a physical action (tick bite), something. Well, when you hurt someone, without early intervention, that injury metastasizes like cancer. And the loneliest people in the world not only don't intervene, they double and triple-down, to ensure that there's no relationship. From: On (or Close to) Schedule - Doubling-Down, Pt 2 - Baseline

The words: “I’m sorry.” Some manifestation of contrition: “I feel awful about what I did; there’s no excuse.” Some overt act to try make things right again: "I'll make it up to you. Let's go to counseling." I submit that a lotta lonely people are the ones that don't understand that apologies are a three-step process. From: On (or Close to) Schedule - Doubling-Down, Pt 1
