Been There

I can't stand seeing or hearing people making fun of others.  I know what it feels like to be made fun of.  I think sometimes people feel they are being benignly clever when they do this, but there is NOTHING benign about it.  Even if they think just making fun of their hair, their outfit, or their shoes doesn't hurt... think again.  I used to wish people would actually physically injure me - shoot me with a freakin' gun - instead of assailing me with the constant cool-kid insults.  There is no such thing as a benign insult.

I think people make fun of other people either under pressure or because they have low-self esteem issues about themselves, so in some weird way it makes them feel better. The best thing you can do is to let it in one ear and out the other.I know it is hard but, if you don't let it phase you it is better for your mental state and it reflects good on you for the person who is making fun of you.Good karma is good karma.
