It Came From An Eighth Grade Girl That Had Her Own Self-esteem Problems (probably)... But Here Goes.

When both her and I were in eighth grade, we were arguing about something. I don't quite recall what it was about. But I just know that she ended up uttering this one phrase: "Well, if you died, no one would really care." Let's just put it this way: though that might be insulting to most, I have a feeling that many would have just brushed it off or at least not taken her seriously. But, since I was very young, I've suffered from depression. At this point in my life, I was starting to have suicidal thoughts. Now, her saying that to me took on a completely different significance because of that. I felt like it could have been true. And at the time, I was starting to lose some friends. So, it really did seem that way to me. And it haunted me for a while.

Of course, I don't give a **** today about what she said (I'm 7 years older now, and wiser). But at the time, it was pretty horrible.

I had the same experience, I was probably in my 5th or 6th grade, and this boy said that if I died, no one would care. It really hurt at that time, and although I know he was just a kid, I am never interested to talk to him anymore, even now that we are both grown up. I just think he must have a horrible personality to be able to say that.
