When I was growing up, my mom told me that those kids who said mean things to me were only trying to hurt me to make them feel better. I told my own kids the same thing. The older I get, the more I realize it’s so true. We should all feel sorry for those people who continually try to hurt us. I mean this. I genuinely feel bad for anyone who lives that way. They must be miserable all the time. Can you imagine what it must feel like to get up every day and have your first thought be of how to hurt others? I want to thank my mom for her insight here. I listened. Thanks Mom!
