It's people like that who give their purpose a bad name. I know they mean well in their abundant faith, but they often hurt people, send unkind messages, or turn other ppl off, and what does that do for the big picture?

She obviously is in a particular mindset, a very simplistic mindset, where she's following blindly, and has no real opinions of her own. She's spouting things she's heard that sound good to her, but she has no real perspective. She can't put herself in another person's shoes, or feel their pain, so she probably shouldn't be offering advice.

You were right to note that she didn't see her own situation through the same lens, and you're right, you were the bigger person by being gracious, and not pointing that out to her. Keep that as your medal instead of punishing yourself over something you haven't worked through.
