I agree and resonate with the comments of all. I too face this same dynamic, almost every word spoken, Teal.. Although, I don't have as much to lose...
I would love to invite you to my home whence it's finished and just surround you with those you love.
The old saying/mantra about surrounding yourself with those who truly love you for YOU goes a long way.
Many of us are ready to die for your cause. Much like myself, though I'm quite feeble, I'll still stand by you anywhere despite me being rather weak whilst being at the prime of 23.. got nothing much to offer you.
But, best way to disarm hate is with unconditional love right? Much like Aikido... one simply uses the other persons own strength against them. Not even self defense or to harm "residence" in that. simply aid them to move through you.
Perhaps spend time with the honorable martial arts? Karate, Bushido, Kyudo, Naginatajutsu, Shaolin, wing chun. the act itself clears the mind. You're bound to find an awesome Sensei. ( makes me think of that Chinese master you met in your early days. and also about that guy who took you pain unto himself, revived/upgraded your entire self from the ground up. ) I want to see you soar even higher, when positive flow meets momentum.. Nothing stops it..
even tai qi, and qigong. These things are truly magical. and bolster self love & for others around you. I love you Teal. i love you so very much.
I desire the same thing. We need more teal tribe meet ups and simply get out there together to have loads of fun being vulnerable with each other, etc. But also advocate teal with the same zeal as the haters, so far many of us dont do much ( for reasons I'm sure, but we could all try a little harder. Next chance I get, I will offer my home to teal tribe meetings from time to time. ( when it's renovations and reconstructions are finished.
