But that's not what you said. Instead, you made it about me... telling me to stand on my own feet and be a man.

That is an insult, because it completely discounts my experience and understanding.

I am not insulted by your view at all.

I am insulted, however, by your telling me to "stand on my own feet and be a man", as if I wasn't already doing that.

I was speaking generically.
However, it did apply to you under that umbrella.
So I am guilty as charged of saying what I said.
However, I still did not insult you.
If you took it as an insult, that is your problem to work through.
In my own opinion, if you are leaning on some supernatural being then you are not standing on your own two feet. And you are not facing reality.

I understand that you disagree with this opinion.
But I still did not insult you.
