I Hate When People Nitpick

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 106 People

    Picky, Picky, Picky

    IT really ****** me off when people have to nitpick you over every little thing. It's like they are attacking you, YOU as a person all over and they are pointing out every little thing. I mean any tiny flaw or imagined flaw they can find to hound you about. Or they are...

    It's Negativity..

    and it wastes everyone's time...I try to hear people out, not judge anyone and find the positive in everything!...I think there would be far less depression, if people stopped tearing everyone else down and focused instead on the good in things...

    Can You Be a Little More Clear Here...?

     When you say, "I hate people who nitpick." Do you mean it metaphorically or literally. Personally I think picking at nits in the literal sense is gross. But in the metaphorical sense, it's really annoying but not gross. Not like it's bad mannered or something. I...

    I'm Having Heart Twinges

    I am having heart twinges in a sense. You see I have known most of these people for several years. Lately I have been feeling like who I am is not enough. I was going to say what I do but all in all who I am is mainly attacked. They will say I have a problem when I don't have one...
