Don’t let them win, like the second that they see it affects you, you let them win. What is something no one… *jumble of questions* What is the most hurtful thing anyone has ever said to you? “Someone I barely knew once said that the only reason I got my board position was because I was pretty, not because I deserved it or worked best.” oof. Well, people are haters.. For anyone who worked so hard and get to a position where you deserve it and for someone to I guess be a little left, I think it’s really really difficult. As unfair as that is, sometimes that kind of makes us rise to be even stronger. I tell myself every day, “I’m a failure.” “I’m not worthy of love and happiness. I should just leave so everyone’s lives would be easier.” A lot of times, I think the most hurtful things are the things you tell yourself. Even if you’re feeling like you’re at your lowest the next day can be your very highest so just keep moving on and looking to the future. “I used to be a bit overweight during middle school and a friend would draw comics about me eating everything and just made me feel bad for being who I was. Still to this day, I’m not happy, even after a massive weight loss in high school.” I can relate to this and even after I lost weight, I still had the “fat” mentality; I still thought of myself as fat. Everybody’s going to have something to say, you are never going to please everybody. Focus on the people that are putting positive in your life versus the people that are putting the negative. I promise if you can do that you’ll feel much better about yourself. If you feel better about yourself, everybody feels better about you. It kind of EXUDES. “My mother told me she would send me back to foster care and put me back up for adoption.” The fact that you’re in that situation, isn’t your fault, but it wasn’t without purpose, so I pray that that situation affects your life in a way that you can affect others so that no one has to go through and feel the way you felt about how she said. I used to get anonymous messages from someone who would call me truly hurtful things and would try to convince me to kill myself.. and for a while, I tried to. Anonymous, I think it’s worse to get them from anonymous because you’re just left guessing who hates me so much? I wouldn’t know what to tell them, but I’m glad this person is still around.
