Good and interesting conversations are a necessity for me. I want to feel like you're expanding my mind. Reflecting and making me think. I need my attention captured. I need my mind to be stimulated. Attention can be fickle though; make me want to remember you.
If you express that a particular joke offends you and you hear a "but it's not that deep" response, that person does not respect you.
If you are in crisis of who you are and your self-image, then everything is going to be distorted because of one crisis that hasn’t been resolved.
Pastor A.R Bernard
