Théun, everyone seems to find my behaviour to be crass and offensive, yet I for myself cannot see what I am doing wrong. Can you please give me some guidance on this issue?
:) Your heart, my friend, is in the right place, but you trip yourself up by wanting to TALK AT people! It is clear that you do this with the BEST of intentions, but whilst you continue to TALK AT people you will ALWAYS come across as being holier-than-thou, looking down upon them, and worst of all, you will keep on CONFIRMING for YOURSELF that you somehow ARE better than them, that you understand more, that you work harder, that you are brighter, etc., etc. So you see, my friend, you are a CLASSIC example of being the PRODUCT of your speech! :)
