Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Don't expect everyone to love, or even like you...

Live and let live, but be sure to take solace in the poor quality of character in your enemies.

When it's mostly the horrible people who are hating you, you must be doing something right.

3. Thank you for this...

It is such a good reminder.

I always tell my kids that it's ok if people don't like you--some won't and that's all right.

I also tell them that if everyone likes them, that they're probably not being themselves. Be yourself. Express yourself. You won't win a popularity contest this way, but you get to live an authentic life.

Thank you for this...

5. Its just so hard sometimes tho :(

You put your trust in them, give them your heart, and in return they spit in your face. Sometimes I just wish I lived on a top of a mountain all alone maybe with a few cats. At least animals would never be as cruel as some humans.

10. I never sought revange. And i did stop trying when my ex left me.

Now I feel like a ghost of who I was

I'm seeing a terapist next week, I think I'm falling into depression.
My ex took away whatever faith I had left in humanity.

11. You're so very right, my dear MrScorpio...

Sometimes it's hard, though.

Especially when you'd thought they were your friends.........and then they turn against you. For bogus reasons.
