Offended

I was “talked” to tonight, by a leader of a group I’m involved with.  At some point, I don’t know if it was someone I was talking to, or someone who overheard me talking to someone else, but they were offended by my words.  I wasn’t told who, due to confidentiality, and was asked not to talk about it again, so I have no way to, one on one, apologize.  What was it about?  In general – cancer.  Possibly an alternative cancer treatment, possibly something I already wrote about on the blog?  No details because that might reveal the “offended”.  I was just told that “cancer” is a touchy subject.  “Some people have a hard time talking about it because maybe they’ve suffered the loss of a family member or friend.”   Well, as you already know if you’ve read through it all, I lost my dad to kidney cancer, my brother made it through a stem cell transplant with lymphoma, I struggled for over 3 years moving from “terminal” to surviving to living with it, and lost over a dozen friends to it in the last 2 years.  I may have mentioned, that because I chose to use alternative and nutritional therapies, I continued looking better and better as my treatments progressed.  I’ve had many people treat me as if nothing was wrong.  I had a friend who acted jealous that I hadn’t lost my hair.  I was later told by a third party that she said it wasn’t fair that I didn’t have to go through the brutal treatments her husband went through.  I do have other things to talk about, but getting well has been my mission.  I’ve accomplished something I was told was impossible.  I’m thankful for the will to live, the dedication, determination and education God provided when I needed it.  So, to this offense, I say as Joe Vitale shares in Zero Limits, “I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you!”

Love, gratitude and blessings
