    i don't understand why some people have to be so nasty and do things to inentionally hurt you i am sick of it. I am not talking about anything anyone on this forum did i am just talking in general. I mean what do people get out of making another persons life miserable, the past few days i have some really nasty people i have had to deal with. there is a person that is intentionally flagging my classified ads online so they will be removed, ads i depend on for work, and people are just downright nasty, one woman came up to me at bingo outside in the smokers area and said flat out get the fuck outta my way ******, why are people so mean, and i know it's not just me i know other people go through this, i am really pissed off. a whole lot of other stuff has happened too. am i just being sensitive or reacting normally? i want to cry just about now... what the hell is wrong with some people???:mad::mad::mad:

    I understand how you feel, sometimes things people say can either come out differently than they mean and hurt you badly. People who bully others are only doing it to feel big, and I know a lot of people say it and I get fed up with it to, but it's because they were bullied too.
    Sometimes things people say to me make me upset or what to cry, and some stuff is so degrading I hate myself or that certain thing for ages. The best thing to do, even though it is one of the hardest is to just ignore it, and keep telling yourself that they are wrong. I was bullied throughout highschool but I finally managed to stop it by standing up for myself, and telling them that what they were doing was one, stupid and two, a waste of time.

    Wally, hun, I wish I had answers for your questions, but I don't know. It could be that someone bullied them and now they are getting their revenge?
    I understand how you feel because when I was in grade school, middle school, and high school, I was bullied also. I was called names, made fun of, and criticized for everything i tried to do. In my senior year of high school, I learned about the opportunities available to me in the US Army. That is where I learned to gain respect for myself. I'm not saying you have to join the Army to get respect, I'm just saying that somewhere in the world there is a place for you and you have to find that place. Just remember, you are a person of worth. With love from, Jolanta

    So many times those that bully are actually nothing but big cowards. They need to intimidate those they see as weaker than they are in order to feel better about themselves. Do you ever see them picking on someone they know is stronger, tougher, and meaner than they are? not usually because they are afraid they might lose and they couldn't take that. You know the truth in your heart, so try not to let them get to you. Someday they will get what they deserve in one way or another. :hug:

    People like that are not worth your time. I actually feel sorry for those people, because their lives are either so fucked up, or so hollow and empty that they need to hurt others to make themselves feel worthwhile. They will need a lot of forgiveness and mercy in the afterlife and I hope God is more merciful than they are.
