You know how some people, when going through a bad time, throw everything out of the window? Literally, EVERYTHING. Everything they have once said, rejoiced and believed in. All that are released from their mouths would be arrows of negative outbursts. Some of these arrows can even be poisonous. That is when the words damage your self-esteem. Yes, you know it can happen.
Let’s give this a scenario:
A: (after whining for over an hour, without interruptions) Ya…so now I’m feeling like shit every day. Nothing is going right for me at all. How I envy you…life is good for you and all…
You: Seriously? You know I’ve just been through some hard times myself. And since young, you have always enjoyed a smoother life than me.
A: This is like the worst shit ever, that can happen to someone! Ever! (It’s not. Far from it.)
You: Ok…think you are too stressed out or something. We should go do something fun! Relax yourself! How about the arcade? Or…karaoke?
A: You know…I shared this problem with Giselle…she was really nice. She totally feels for my situation. She didn’t go on to talk about her own stuff…she just listens…and I really feel much better after that.
Seriously?? Yes. The big question is, Why Do You Have To Tolerate This Crap?
Answer: You don’t.
You: Apparently, she didn’t make you better. Or..maybe you were just too darn bad to start with.
