When your habit your normal course of action doesn't hear me out doesn't let me finish my sentence... When I am shushed if the question that matters to me doesn't matter to you... When I seek a better solution for all of us and my words expressing ideas important to me in language important to me are shifted to your words and language or struck from the final deal altogether... When I strive to paint together with you a world with more variety of color and line and my colors and lines are painted over or are imperceptible except to one who knows just where to look for them... When everything I offer is met with Not here Not now: What do I do living with a lifetime of the ends of sentences jammed in my throat and the wildly alive Image of God burning here and now in my chest?

Profound. Enlightening. I have felt the same way. You articulate it so well, so beautifully. It is so hard to swallow the self righteous indignation that some wield like a sword. I have wielded it too, I’m sorry to say.
