    You are certainly far more bilingual than me, and, moreover, I am influenced by regionalisms in my location. I agree 100% there is no right or wrong here. I really don't feel very confident in either language. So much hinges on tone and how the other person receives the message.

    mvictoria is right. The word "part" is often understood as abstract in English. "She is a part of who I am". "Part of me wants to say 'yes' and part of me wants to run away". "There are parts of our relationship that I believe will become a problem down the road". It is so abstract that it is rare (but possible) for someone to use it in word play. One example would be:

    "Part of me wants to go out with you".
    "Which part"?
    LOL!!!! That's a good one, Gernt!

    Más sabe el diablo por viejo que por diablo....lo poco que sé lo he aprendido porque a través de los años siempre he estado en disposición de aprender.

    Hace muchos años que me quité el escudo defensivo porque me dí cuenta que nadie me estaba atacando.
