Why Are You So Mean?

Standard

Have you ever had anyone in your life who is downright mean? It’s so hard for me to comprehend that any human being would lack empathy, the ability to show kindness and compassion and have so little respect for others that they belittle every chance they get. It’s hard for me to believe that they have been through something so horrible that they turn to ice, spewing off coolness to the people who try to love them. I used to have pity but now I am just disgusted by behavior that hurts and offends other people. Maybe it’s a defect in the brain or maybe it’s just pure selfishness. The older I get, the more I realize that every day I wake up is one day less to live. I just don’t have the time to allow mean or small people into my life. I am blessed that my world is so big that I do not get caught up in the smallness, the things that really don’t matter. I would never intentionally hurt someone. If someone is hurting, I will pick them up and not kick them in the face while they are already down. We are all deserving of respect. If someone cannot offer that, are they really worth being around? It’s a tough question to ponder and it’s even harder to answer.

  2. I live with two people who are often like this. It blows my mind when they act like this. For the longest time I thought that I was the one with the problem. Talk about being gas-lighted. I’m trying to change my life to the point that I don’t need to deal with them anymore (or in just limited amounts). It’s going to take at least another year, but that is what I’m working towards with every piece of myself.

  3. My oldest stepson has a mean streak going down the middle of his back. He is a vascular surgeon and is the most narcissistic people I’ve ever known. He will say anything to belittle his father . It infuriates me… Luckily he moved across the country ,so there it much room for interaction. My husband is the kindest man I’ve ever known. So undeserving of such hateful actions and words from an adopted son to whom he gave everything. It’s really very sad.

    There is just a certain (small) percentage of the human population that is comprised of sociopathic people. There is no excuse for their behaviors or actions. They do not deserve to be pardoned, they will unflinchingly plow over anyone in their path to get whatever they want. It’s just a sad fact of humanity.
