Severe eye-rolling is probably the most appropriate response! I chuckle at the absurdity of the communication, but it also wants to make me heave. I've heard this same language too. There must be some secret writing course they have, Writing Fluff For Lekkies or something, where they learn to write in their scripts. Can you imagine a world where we all talked like that? What a nightmare!
Dynamix really hit it on the head here, especially:
Telling you that she'll "never give up on whatever relationship we have" is sneaky, she's thinking that she's being totally selfless in taking the blame and that her motives are pure (which in her mind, they are, remember that part) where as in fact it's tricky because it makes you feel guilty and cons you into giving her her "win."
My experience with Landmark is selfless=selfish. In one of my earlier posts I said that I don't trust anything a Lekkie tells me. The quote above is partly why -- so much of what goes on is a shell game, and trust is impossible when you have to wonder if you are subtly being "enrolled." I think the communication she gave you is largely an enrollment conversation -- she is just taking a different tack at it, becoming very disarming and "vulnerable" (falsely), in order to build some rapport and trust, in order to get your defenses down. The clinch phrase is the "You don't need to do Landmark . . . " phrase. No better way to make a sale than to say they don't need it.
In Landmark, the measure of their results is enrollment. Always be enrolling. Whatever you are doing, get people to enroll in what YOU are doing. How selfish.
I wouldn't give this any energy in response, leftcoast. I find there is nothing that deflates them more than to be untouched, unmoved, and uninspired by what they do/say (even what appear to be compliments). Sounds like you're doing great overall with this. Keep doing what you're doin'.
