And that made her run?

Actually we both were in the same section till the eightth grade and used to share the same classroom.

Now, we are ninth graders and she sits in a different classroom. We haven't talked to each other in person for long. She isn't used to see me appear before her.

Yesterday, we were talking and she said she was very angry. I asked how could I have helped. She replied that A slap would come her down. I asked her to slap me. She asked me to come 2 her class so that she could slap me

But that did not work. Next time have her try a couple of slow deep breaths.

Hi Agnishom;

They are very changeable, sort of even fickled. One day they like you the next day they don't...

You will have to learn to get used to that. You can not change anyone else's behaviour. Even if you use force. But you can change and moderate your own.

Try to take a little bit more of a detached viewpoint. This will mean less distress for you. And you can come in here and talk to me and I will cheer you up.

Thank you for your support

I feel a little better

You should. Your internal meter should never rise and fall on what others think or say about you. Listen to their criticism without emotion, if they are right then change your actions. If they are not just forget it or retaliate.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

She isn't criticising me

And that's where the problem is.

Also, I do not care if anyone else criticises me.

Ignoring you is a form of criticism. Treat it with a dose of its medicine, ignore it. If she talks to you that is great, if not that is also great.

When learning how to fight you learn to protect your head, chest and a few other spots. You have to protect your heart when dealing with girls.

Ignoring you is a form of criticism.

But I thought criticism is something like this:

Criticism is the practice of judging the merits and faults of something or someone in an intelligible (or articulate) way.

I an intelligible way, hmmm. Maybe that can apply?

I like this definition better:

the act of passing severe judgment; censure; faultfinding.

Yes. so what judgement, what censure, what faults...?

I can find none, but I am not her. They are very emotional and fragile sometimes. Is there no chance of her telling you what she is thinking and feeling?

What you told in #410 sounded somewhat like Nky's advice

I think it is sound advice for lots of things in life. You need to draw upon the inner calm that comes from understanding that these problems are illusions. They come and go. They change daily, do not change with them.

No, the routines are part of FluxBB. Then the words you want to censor are added manually.

Is FluxBB open source?

BTW, does the 'm' and 'r' in *that* word make much difference?
