we hate those we gave wronged

I remember coming across a reminder of this bit from Dostoevsky while in the midst of my befuddlement and vexation over what on earth could be my sister's reason for suddenly treating me as though I were a murderer or child trafficker or some sort of despicable criminal or other. It was/has been as though one or the other of us has been taken over by a space alien.

So, Dostoevsky to the "rescue" I guess.

Just too stupid and vicious and ugly to be borne.

pipe up any time....
