There's nothing victim-like about identifying a problem and fixing it. But I know that's hard to understand coming from a philosophy that divides up the world into victims and non-victims only. Again, there is no nuance in the cult of positive thinking.

And I'm not shaming you. I'm pushing back against your original narrative that I somehow have taken no accountability for this -- clearly, this piece shows the opposite.

What's clear is that you didn't expect I'd push back; you're likely accustomed to people slinking off after you accuse them of bringing on bad fortune; perhaps they don't have the fortitude to see right through this malarky. I'm different in that way.
