Insulting somebody is really wrong. But insulting them back is worse. That's very immature! (Oh God, where's the morals & values of people?!)
For every dogs that will bark at you on the streets, are you going to throw a stone to each of them? If you'll say yes, then you won't be able to move forward. Because you always stop to each dogs wasting your time & effort picking up stones to hit them just because you don't like them barking at you.
A confident person with a goal in life won't even bother to stop & pick a stone & hit those barking dogs, instead he'll move forward to reach his destination ignoring them. He is focused with his goal that he won't let others to distract him or drag him down.
If your attitude is always "I must insult them back because they insulted me"
or "I'm just doing what they did to me"
, you're just going down to their level. You're no longer different from them. If they're evil, you'll become evil, too. Insults after insults, paying insults with another insults.. there'll be no end to it.
You won't even appear better than them. Well, it only shows that you were very much AFFECTED with their words or w/ what they were saying. If not, why you'll insult them back feeling butthurt?
In denial, eh? This kind of "game" is for kids & non-educated people only; they CAN'T CONTROL their mouths & emotions (like my neighbors near squatter's area). And in this "game", the pissed off is always the LOSER. Why? It's their goal to provoke you! And seeing you're pissed off makes them feel like a winner.
Some local celebrities say "You don't have to react to all the insults thrown at your face. Sometimes, being silent means: You don't give a shit to what they were saying."
You don't have to prove anything to anybody in the first place. But if you really want to prove them wrong, do something better without hurting anybody or boasting what you have. STAY HUMBLE! (unless you're a war-freak attention-seeker)
To my dear co-deviants who were insulted by others, pls don't think like I know everything or I'm just acting like "I'm always right." (maybe I'm really right)
I just know how you feeling, & here I am sharing some piece from my personal experiences & lessons learned rather. Just like many of you, I've received tons of insults too from others that I could not even remember some of them. Insults from classmates, bullies, backstabbers, teachers, neighbors, co-workers, superiors, clients, callers, strangers, co-deviants, relatives, & sometimes, from my own family. Of course, I was deeply hurt with their words. After all, I'm still a human with emotions. (so it's normal to feel hurt) Deep inside, I was really affected, but I decided not to show it & give them happiness seeing me pissed off or down. Instead, as time goes by, I learned to ignore their ugly remarks & focused on what's more important. And if I can afford it, I would still face them professionally or w/ my genuine smile. I know it's not easy to handle insults, but according to some wise, mature & educated people, you don't have to react to everything negative & feel bitter about it. If someone says ugly things about you, let them. Their words just define them, not you.
They're just revealing what kind of people they are. See? If they'll insult me more despite of my humbleness, then SHAME ON THEM!
Besides, it's not my personality to fight with anybody. (ah, I'm not a dog) And why would I waste my precious time dealing with them if there's KARMA? According to its law, everything you did to others will return to you. So be nice, & the world will be nice to you. Goodluck!
