We hear so much about kids being mean but we rarely hear about adults being mean. Adults teach there kids that being mean is ok, being a bully is a learned behavior and there is no excuse for it. Saying and doing mean things to another person doesn’t make you a better person, it doesn’t make you appear intelligent or special in any way. Computers make it even easier for people to be mean because they can hide behind technology.
I’ve had some real hateful remarks made to me online and all I do is shake my head and say to myself that, that person has a lot of anger and they need to take it out on someone but why me? I do not claim to be more than I am and being mean to me doesn’t change anyone’s life or who they are. I do believe a lot of hateful remarks are made out of being rejected somewhere along the life in their lives.
I try not to let my anger come out in mean remarks to other people but I also refuse to let someone use me as their whipping post because I have a hard enough time with my self esteem. I’m trying so hard not to drown in the pressures of life and Im doing the best I can but there seems to always be someone out there that insists on being mean. I rarely share with others how difficult life is for me and that is why I write so much.
I try to let go of what is hurting me so much, what is making life so hard and challenging. People do not care about anyone but themselves and all I can say is do not be mean.
