but they keep deleting your comments and spinning it to make themselves look good when they in fact look terrible in a given situation, does it feel like a win, or a loss for you?

I take it as a loss because instead of being introspective and getting better, they just be defensive and slip even further away. I truly hope that people can at least reflect on the information in private since they're unable to do so in public. Perhaps it's just my lack of people skills, but I think it's also at least in part due to people's inability to look critically at themselves.

Sad face.

I never see having different opinions with someone as a win or lose situation.
Advice given should be seen as gifted necktie at Christmas. Whether they wear it or not is no concern of mine

[@1097981,JoePourMan] Differing opinions is something entirely different than what I'm talking about. It's akin to one person saying, "I think murdering a certain group of people is fine. I get that you don't, it's just a different opinion." It's not okay to write it off so simply. One person needs help, but just like this situation, they'll ignore it and that makes me sad. I want them to get better.

Wanting someone else to get healthy, however, is apparently narcissistic of me--if you can figure [i]that[/i] shit out, let me know.
