I Wish People Would Realize How Their Actions Hurt Others

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,147 People

    Nobody will ever really know what someone else

    is going through and their words can push someone to their limits. Everybody just needs to start taking a step back and try to understand others before they judge them.

    Just Realized

    I, for the longest time was one of those people who went about his life w/o much regard for the feelings of people around me, even the ones I loved or cared for. It was my naive nature that thought: no matter what I do or say my friends and fam will always be around good or bad...

    I'm Very Disappointed

    The sudden disappointment of a hope leaves a scar which the ultimate fulfillment of that hope never entirely removes. Thomas Hardy I have recently discovered that someone I've held on a pedestal thinking they were as honest as the day is long only to find out they've been...

    Today I was in my history class

    and I sit behind this guy who's sometimes mean to me. Well today, I was sitting at my desk when he walked up, took the stuff off of my desk and sat it at another desk across the room and when I asked him why he did it, he said "I don't want you anywhere near me." That hurt me...

    I hate seeing people hurt.

    It drives me insane. Calling a girl fat and ugly hurts more than you know! Calling someone stupid will stay with them forever. When you ignore a person, it hurts. When you avoid talking or associating with a person, it hurts. You have no idea what that person has been through...

    Why Can't People Keep Out of Other Peoples Lifes and Business.

    Its a shame that some men feel the need to totally control a women, and ruin her chances of decent employment.  Does it stroke his ego to squash her aspirations and dreams.  In my experience it only takes one person to assassinate your character and destroy...

    It hurts to love someone.

    And not to be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

    Most Likely Never Will.

    I tend to believe that we live in a society in which we don't pay enough attention to others. Like we walk past people who are sad and we are so selfish we don't even notice them. Somtimes they would even try to give hints to us or ask for help indirectly and we just see what we...
