Murphey continues: Although that happened weeks ago, as I continued to ponder his statement, I’ve decided that he’s right. I need those negative, hateful, harsh, mean-spirited people in my life. I don’t like what they say, and sometimes I’m offended. A few times I’ve gotten angry over things they’ve done. I’ve resented them and wanted to retaliate by telling them how despicable and insensitive they are. (I haven’t usually done those things, but I’ve thought about them.)
