Man! Why are some people so insensitive? Long story short, I got into an argument with my older brother earlier over a remark he made that I didn't necessarily find funny...so when I tried to open up to ppl about how I felt, all they could say to me was that I was being "pre-teen", overreacting too much and that I "need a thicker skin".....how does that help anything?!!! Why, when I feel pretty low and sh***y about myself, do I just get a load of unnecessary guff about toughening up and snapping out of it? Are these people blind?!!!! It's not that simple to just get a "thicker skin" when you have such a crappy outlook on life and other people! And believe me, it takes a lot for me to open up to people like this...unloading all my personal problems. Just makes me question my faith in others.....maybe I WON'T open up or pour my heart out to anyone if that's all I get! I give up!
