Unfortunately it takes two in any effort at communication verbally or non verbally and mean things are bad but ignoring someone, them not validating your feelings and holding you in judgement for everything that they don’t agree with is often more painful because it lowers yourself worth and does not come from a place of love and understanding. Extremely hurtful and extremely hard to control emotional responses. It’s a knife right to the heart. ~ Linda Littrell
Don’t waste your time trying to change the way people feel about you it’s none of your business how they think just smile laugh be happy no worries your the maker of your own feelings.
People think they are clever putting others down. If they get no reaction, hopefully they will get fed up and stop. Unless they are not intelligent enough.
