As a highly sensitive and reflective person who tends to draw strong reactions from others, I've learned to let it go. Trust me, I do plenty to folks who should stay mad at me despite my apologies. And, I support them in that. If I was a real "B" once, hate me: it makes sense. I can't stand the people who jump on a bandwagon though: dislike me because I've DONE something to you. Not because you heard... Or your friend said... Please, we're grown. I worked with a woman who did not make eye contact (let alone speak to me) for about five months. She didn't like me because I got the job she wanted. I carried on like I never knew anything. I realized that it didn't matter what I did or didn't do, she had her mind set on not liking me. Of course that crazy cow had the nerve to ask me for a recommendation, and I gave her one that was about five sentences long... But, I digress!
