Holy Snap Attack!

How many of us have been attacked by other peoples words? I am sure in the past all of us have been attacked by something someone has said. Why do people feel the need to be so rude? I try to be as nice as I can to people. What goes around comes around. I hate when people "try" to attack me with their words. Words are words, and sure they might hurt your feelings, but why do people seem to have a need to ruin others days? What type of attacking words have people used on you? Did this ruin your day? How did you deal with this situation? What are some good tips about responding to people who try and verbally attack you?

I have been snapped at by even people here! I remember these people, especially one. I try not to immediately snap back, but in one case I kinda did. There is a person on here who knows how to research mylot with ease. She can find 985 discussions on a subject at all times. I came home from the hospital after having two strokes and couldn't wait to get back to mylot! I couldn't find answer to something and created a question instead saying I couldn't find it! She came back with: "When there are 985 discussions on this?!" I just said "you don't have to jump all over me for it! All I can say is don't come in here if you are sick and fuzzy headed. You are not alone!

Ahh yes kinda the same thing for me. Not just on Mylot but other networks as well. You can find out a lot from a person just by how they speak to someone they have never met. When it happened to me it felt like high school drama, but no drama just the straight up attitude. It was like I had directed that particular discussion, comment, to these individuals. Simply when someone makes a mistake, I do feel that yes they should be corrected, but not with such attitude.

It happen always in our home and the people who do this to me are my own brother and sister. What I really hate is that it always happen in the morning. The morning hat I loved so much when my mind is fresh and active. Maybe I am getting used to their cruel words anymore that is why the pain lessened everyday. Actually if I give them any attention they will be successful in ruining my days that is why I tried to turn my deaf ears towards their verbal abused. But in the end of the day my fondness for them overrides my being upset....so it's kind of forget today and just head on tomorrow.

I say that sisters and brothers can have a lot of problems sometimes. Not everyone gets along with their siblings for various reasons. My sister and I do not get along at all. I don't know why but she always had a goal to make my life a living H*LL. Since I was a child there has been name calling, jealousy, games being played on me, verbal and physical abuse, and much more. I used to come home from school and get in trouble for things that I had no idea what they were about. We physically fist fought a few times over who got the car that night to who left the dog out over night. Every time I got in trouble I would be grounded or punished with more chores. I think it was her way of bossing me around through my parents. I would get her chores, and her duties around the house and she would get away with it. (I can just imagine her evil witch laugh now.) It changed my relationship with my parents because they thought I was trouble. They treated me like this demon child. I always had a early curfew, was never trusted, and much more. I moved out when I was 15 years old and things started to change. I don't suggest that for everyone since everyone is different. I suggest staying at home as long as you possibly can. For many different reasons. I don't know why exactly that things started to change between me and my parents, but they did. They treated me differently and started listening to me. Now that I'm older and I talk to my mother about different things, she understands me and always says shes sorry for being so blind about it. She honestly believed that I was troubled, and just thought the doctors couldn't figure it out. They even sent me to psychiatrist, therapists and councilors, but I wouldn't talk to them the same way I would when I started doing this on my own. So it has taken me a bit to get over all that, by talking to doctors and other people that have gone through the same things. Since I was over it I recently became engaged and thought I would ask my sister to be in the wedding party. She then told me that she couldn't afford it, couldn't take that kinda time off work and that it would be to much trouble for her to get fitted and what not. Now I see her facebook status stating shes going to Montreal this coming week, shes booked her Mexican travels for this coming March, and yada yada. Now I didn't expect her to hope on a plane and come get fitted, my wedding isn't till 2012. So I figure that was the end of that. Once I seen those status's I decided I was not going to "try" with her anymore. That doesn't mean I will ignore her but I defiantly wont be the first to speak anymore. I can honestly say I "hate" my sister.

Words are sometimes for hurtful than actual physical attacks. And some people are just really rude that it's really hard to avoid it. If I have my wits with me, I can actually snap back one or two myself if I was being attacked. But if it were someone I don't really don't know, and I have time to think about, and realize that it's not worth it, then maybe I'll just give the one-finger salute and move on.

Words are more hurtful then any punch I can think of. Especially if the harsh words are coming from someone you care about. There are so many reasons people feel the need to be rude, It could be because they are jealous, angry, literally anything, But regardless there is no cause for someone to try to hurt you with words. People will tell you don't worry about it, Just Brush it off... Yeah Right Easier said then done, right? In my day I have dealt with a lot of pretty down right mean people, I'm talking about being used, Stealing money from me and just recently invited me on a trip and then ignored me when I was all packed up and ready to go... Just turned his phone off, So what can I say I simply wont ever deal with him again. Sometimes things are said out of anger especially when someone is drunk, if that person doesn't call you within the next 48 hours I feel like they aren't your friend and shouldn't be given a second chance. Dont give them the satisfaction of fighting with them because deep down that is probably what they want anyways, just ignore them and don't deal with them that's the best you can do at least in my opinion. your friend Larry

I can relate to this! I hate the money topic. I have been stolen from, borrowed from, loaned from, cheated from and everything that involves money. I honestly hate when people can not commit to things like say paying someone back. If you can't I will understand, just talk to me and work something out. I am very fair. You could pay me 10 bucks a year and I would be happy. If you stole from me, tell me yourself before I find out, pay me back, give it back, or leave my life. I do not need people who steal from me and are dishonest about it. People that owe money always seem to have a hard time talking to me. I don't know why but they sure do. But I have always been able to get back what is mine from most people. There is only a few that still owe me something. One of which is court ordered, and just over the three thousand mark. That was for a car that was stolen from me and the person had admitted it during court. But that was years ago and still have not received a penny from it. I do have to go back and have that garnished but I am waiting until its worth it to me. and in your words, " simply wont ever deal with him again"

Oh yes~ It happens yesterday.. I totally understand why those rude words comes out to her mouth- Because she's exhausted and haven't eat launch yet... huh?! I'm kind of Immune in those kinds of people~ because anyone who is hungry and tired and still need to do some work with unhelpful people is a passing reason for you to explode-~ so.... My advice to her is to get someone who will order the food for her so it wont happen again~~ :) she's just hungry~ 0_0
