Kindred,


Memory is, at times, selective, especially when it's perceived through a different lens.


Sometimes, with some people, it is so selective that you wonder if it was a memory at all or a hallucination. 


It is especially bad with narcissists that do not take no for an answer, hear and read whatever wants into every person and situation, basing  everything on their own desires.


It becomes problematic when these people "read" you like a book and force you into their likes, even though you do not like them.

  

What makes matters worse, narcissists can never figure out that I will never like, because it was never based upon my person and desires, but theirs. 


What was incompatible to begin with is even more aggravatingly incompatible now.


Preferences are preferences.


It is not something, someone else can change.


Also, if someone is not blessed with genius level IQ and EQ, no amount of bluster or wishful readings will change this fact;


Just like a copycat is a copycat, never the origin, never the original.


Who you like is your business; just do not force your like on my business and my person.


Since this is my life, the only thing that matters and is on my radar, is who I like.
