    MSU degree's. This is what the iop councelor always told our groups. That we ALL make stuff up!!!! Of course we all do this. It is not incorrect. It just is what it is.
    But again..... I digress.

    I do not disagree that you may have heard your IOP Councelor tell groups that All make stuff up.

    What I do question is how this Councelor supports this theory. Was a global study done on every person alive? Was this based in fact? Was this an assumption? What research does this Councelor present in evidence of the theory?

    As you stated... "it is what it is." Just your IOP Councelor's theory and your belief.

    I'm sorry you feel a need to leave the board over a simple dialogue, a communication of individual thoughts, feelings and expressions, and a conversational debate on the many sides of theories. I will not speak for others, only myself. I would like it if you stayed, I would be sad if you were to leave but I know you must do what is best for you. I love you SB. We have gone through much on the board. We are all human and suffer from the human condition of individuality. This is what makes us all unique. We are all perfect in our imperfection, after all, God created us all and God does not make mistakes.

    Hugs to you SB.
