I Don't Understand Why Some People Are So Mean

    Never Understood

    I don't understand the appeal of crushing someone's self-esteem or feelings to bits. How can power over someone else feel good to you, even though you know you just caused another living thing pain? I don't get it. It's just not at all my nature.

    I think people are so much afraid of being

    judged or loose something, that they immediately start attacking before they actually have a "reason" to do such. fear is a f***ing mind cancer.

    Like honestly what good do they get out of it?

    How can seeing yourself picking apart and destroying someone's life give you a buzz like why do it? Why would you want to intentionally destroy someone's life

    I personally love making people laugh

    and having a good time. Why are some people really rude and mean, especially on the internet? There are many hateful comments, and it can be quite harmful to many people who deal with depression and sensitivity. It's cyber-bullying, and I wish everyone could just get along in a...

    I've seen it on other websites and on here on EP. I'm disappointed. Some leave insulting remarks and telling people to go kill themselves. What was that for? That's no way to treat others. Bullying others for no reason or whatever. Come on now, really? Also making rude...
