Why is it that people like to put people down? I know people that try to hurt people just to affect them and I think it is wrong. Personally I get attacked everyday and he says he is trying to make me stronger even though I don't buy it. I know there is a saying whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger but when someone is constantly putting you down I don't see how that helps..
