Just walking down from my house to the shops this sunny afternoon, a young man was walking up the hill towards me, smoking a cigarette. I was humming a song to myself and aware of him but thinking of other things. He was rather handsome, and I think of mixed race... and I may have been staring, but I really was only half paying attention. We were crossing each other, me going down the hill, he up, when he said with a scornful voice, 'that's enough of this little girl sh*t - suck d*ck' and went on past. I was pretty surprised and - obviously - angry. I called after him 'Wow, what did I do?'. He carried on walking but looked back over his shoulder long enough to say again, 'suck d*ck'. Rather naturally, I'm quite upset by this - just wanted to get it off my chest really. How many people just are angry, I guess! How easy it is to offend someone without even realising what you're doing! I'm a counsellor and try to be skilled at not taking on other people's bad energy, but you know... it's pretty hard sometimes.
