GUEST,Wowbugger BS: Lost sense of humour: links to bullying (51* d) RE: BS: Lost sense of humour: links to bullying 10 Apr 00

Little Neo if I had written my original message like this would you consider me wise and compassionate?

Whenever I have encountered hasty, unthinking people who say needless things, yeah, it bugs me for a moment and then I consider the source. You should not feel bad about yourself or irritated with the person (although that's the knee-jerk response) but consider how unhappy they must be in order to purposely try to inflict themselves on everyone. They will NEVER admit this but obviously, they feel hurt or unloved or whatever, in their own lives, their own selves and they can't help but blabber to anyone who happens by. It has NOTHING to do with you and everything to do with THEM. The ironic thing is, and the thing they don't understand, is that talking over other people ultimately silences them even more. If you change your emotion from either irritation or disgust to pity, it is much easier to deal with these puppies. They are miserable. And there's a nice amount of poetic justice in that.
