Ever made someone feel bad so you would feel good?

I often feel ashamed and guilty knowing that I have allowed the beast in me to go out and sometimes cause damage to me and worse to the people around me. Its shameful that I have claimed to be a christian and still allow the beast in me to cause damage and hurt other people that I care about.

I don't know if I did. I may have hurt other people's feelings unintentionally but never to make me feel good about myself. I think it is really bad attitude when you do this.

Its not a good attitude. Its not a blessing to others who have seen you do this to other people. There are times though that we dont mean things but they just happen in a snap and then another person is not pleased and it caused them pain.

Sometimes I say things that would make the person feel bad and I would feel vindicated because of how I made that person feel. I usually do things like that when I feel that an injustice has been done to someone or to me and I want the person to realize his/her mistake. Once a friend of mine was accused of something that is just not so true and was asked to resign. I knew I had lots of projects going but I resigned too just to spite the person who did those things to my friends. She asked me to stay but I refused. I made her feel so bad because I was a key person in her team but she was so unfair to my very good friend and I just can't take all that sitting down. I do things my own way and I felt that I got back to her for my friend. Though, both of them are non the wiser of the reason why I resigned.

Yes, thats very true. Soemeitmes we think of revenge to get even but I dont have peace. Sometimes I mask it with something else but its the other way around. More often than not we hate believe that it has become a not so good lifestyle that needs to be polished and to be cleaned. Its not good to be always hurting others but sometimes we impose it as a punishment sometimes.

I feel guilty and I feel bad at myself, everytime I hear a bad side comment agaisnt the way I have treated my subsceribers. I have known the reason because I was too driven to assist as many subscribers as I can but I dont have the quality time and the quality service that they deserve. I dont know why I end up alwasy like this, every now and then it happens and I dont like it and I want to change but why does it have to be like this. I am not successful of taming the best in me and end up not pleasing them because I have targets which is not something to make them feel better.

Not me. I do not really like to think about it either. That is just plain mean and I like to avoid going there if I don't have to.
