Sincerely, The Bigger Person

I was going to write about my day of doing errands and boxing up my life, but then...I had an interesting experience on Facebook that sort of made me just want to delete my page altogether. Maybe create a new one, but probably not.

So, I haven't really been a victim of bullying. I guess you could say that I have to a point, but not really. Until today. 

Bullying...I don't understand it. At all. 

I get the the people that do it have issues. They came from a broken home. They've been treated poorly by people who love them. They want attention. They envy you. They hate you. They think you are someone that you aren't. 

But that isn't an excuse. There is no excuse for making a person feel this way. I honestly just do not understand...

Basically, what happened to me was simple. I made a comment on a status. It wasn't rude. It wasn't...invasive. It wasn't anything but a comment. Then this girl responds in the rudest way possible. Instead of being nice about it, just responding, oh I don't know, like a normal person, she had to be a bitch about it...

So I responded...still not being rude. I just said, "oh well that wasn't what I was referring to...but I guess I should have been more clear" Then she calls me a creep and sends me a message telling me ...rude things. Things I'm sure that she knew would hurt me. Because she's obviously a profession at bullying. Lots of practice I'm sure. 

I tried to not let it bother me, but I just keep thinking about what this girl said to me and it doesn't feel good. 

She blocked me of course. Because why would you want to see the reaction of what you'd just said to someone?  Of course, right after you say the rudest things to this poor girl who has never been bullied in her life you have to run and hide. 

Well, girlfriend, I've got news for you. You will get nowhere being rude to people for no reason. You will get no where picking fights and creating enemies.  You will never succeed in life if you attack those who don't deserve it and you tear down people who wouldn't ever be anything but nice to you. 

You won't read this and you won't care. You won't change and you won't ever have a true friend. 

I hope you are proud of the person that you are and all the people that you hurt. I know that I'm not your first victim and I won't be your last. I just hope that the next person that you hurt isn't unstable...because you are going to get hurt.

WOW!!!! I honestly wonder what is wrong with people. She needs to grow up and get over herself. Good for you for being the bigger person. You are and always will be better than her. :)

You're a bigger person than I am! I would have told that girl off. Lol. I'm sure you really showed your maturity by not lashing back at that girl.
