I just dont get it....

As long as I can remember, I've always hated to see people's feelings get hurt...

& always hate to have my feelings hurt.

I think I could handle getting punched in the face more then someone trying to hurt my feelings....

& when I see someone else getting their feelings hurt, it even feels like a punch in the gut to me.

I've seen repeatedly over the past few weeks that I am surrounded by some people that really love to discourage others... really find a joy in trying to belittle others... really find happiness in trying to embarrass others.

Its so sad to me

What makes someone WANT to just hurt someone to the core?  For no reason?   

& the worse part is when this person is feeling so happy with themselves for insulting others & they look at me, with an expression of "You agree - right?" ...

I've actually been bolder in standing my ground & saying "That's not right" or just shaking my head & letting them know that in fact, I don't agree...
& not being with the others who laugh, uncomfortably... but with fear that if they don't laugh, they're next on the list to be made fun of....

incredulous
This is usually my reaction at least 3 times in a given work day

Sometimes life feels like it's nothing but Middle School all over again...

It makes me really aware of how hurtful words are...
How they effect a whole atmosphere...

& it makes me completely aware of how I respond to those words...

I never want to be a part of hurtful words

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,
but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
~Ephesians 4:29


Do you think hurt feelings are the worst?

What do you say to a 'bully' in action?

Ever feel like life is still just like middle school?

  1. I have this same dilemma, but just with one particular person and I can't just remove myself from her altogether, unfortunately. What I've learned through this situation though, is that it is not me, it is HER. She is miserable, and she has to try to make others miserable in order to feel better. It is sad. And pathetic. And I think she might be crazy. ;) But I pray for her and the situation daily!

  2. Life is still so much like Middle School. And I don't understand it at all. I have a couple of those people in my life who feed off of making other people miserable, and it is painful to spend time with them.

  3. I'm with you...I just don't understand why some people are mean and rude on purpose...and say hurtful things. that they KNOW are hurtful. It makes it very hard to speak the truth in love, because I want to fight fire with fire...but that's not what is going to help.

    Every once and a while I feel like I'm back in middle school! Some people are just bullies for life!

  4. Hey, my friend! Feels like it's been forever! Oh, yes...I've seen meaness in people play out many times. When it does, I often have to say something. I just can't stand by and allow someone else's feelings to be hurt...it kills me! I try to be nice about it, but it's often very hard to bite my tongue. Looking forward to blogging regularly again soon with you and all the ladies! Hey, I'm doing the Easy Canvas giveaway on Monday! I may have to look at your post about the giveway you had so I'll know how to write it all up.
