    I grew up being tortured on a daily basis.

    Everything from name calling, to gum/eggs in hair, to being physically pushed down/shoved around. I've never been the type to have the courage to stand up for myself... Even now this is something I struggle with. But, when it comes to me witnessing someone else being put down...

    Put Down

    About two years ago, I went to a garage station, inside there's a Tim Horton's.  I don't recall what he said exactly but the manager put down the young employee.  it seems as she was about to cry.  It was said right in front of me while I was at the cash.  I politely stood...

    Always Stick Up For Underdog

    I can't stand to see someone being picked on or disrespected.  I will sometimes stand up for them even if I don't really see their side of things. When I see someone being "crushed" I feel an almost compulsive desire to stick up for them. My Dad always used...

    See Red

    I cannot stand when someone puts another person down unnecessarily...especially when its someone who can't or won't defend themselves. I find it incredibly immature and unnecessary. The need to attack another simply to see them bleed is incomprehensible in my book.

    Competetive

    I cant stand to see parents looking down to their children. That is why they get so screwed up. Everyone makes a mistake. It just takes people alot longer to learn from them. People them down and telling them they are worthless does not help matters much.
