Do they just want to pull everyone else into their misery?
Talk about knee-jerk reactions.
If you don't like being called on your senseless statements, stop making senseless statements and stop starting 20 threads a day. You are in total control of this.
I think it's funny when people get their panties in a bunch when someone disagrees with them.
i never understood either.
or a feeling of superiority
i think some people take enjoyment in making others feel bad simply because they can and it makes them feel powerful and invincible
Nasty, miserable people are driven by the reactions of overly sensitive people. Called mem :tongue:
I don't know the post/thread you are referring to mem but you do tend to overreact/ take things to heart a bit much.
This was not referring to you Lex, nor your friend that made the statement. I don't dislike either of you. I don't think either of you are miserable, at all.
It is more about one person in particular who I have gotten off my scent so I will not speak his name, and another nasty person here whom I will not mention. And yet another who has been kind enough to ignore me recently. If you want to know who you are you can ask me, if it is not, I will tell you so.
... and insecurity about what or who they are and have to offer to assist the rest of us.
... defensiveness instead of co-operation.
Describing many co-workers here... sorry!
I forgot it is the Weak-End.
*** Actually, it looks like I joined in on a hornet's nest that I did not expect... I'm bagging out of this thread. ****
One man's nasty, miserable person is another man's realist.
Or, in other words, just because person A comes across to person B as nasty and miserable doesn't actually make that so. Sometimes people are just incompatible.
Mem--It appeared that you started this thread after we disagreed in that other thread. Sorry for that assumption.
Without more details (dynamics, subject matter,. etc.), I can't posit why they are being nasty towards you. I try to use the ignore button more and more--when you do and don't read what the people you are ignoring say, the board can be an easier place to play in.
Yes, one of the people who I think are nasty here, I suspect that this is the reason.
Actually this was just a question in general.
It wasn't even about me, It was someone being nasty to someone else.
The majority of people who think everyone else is a miserable nasty person is missing the point - when the rest of the world is at fault take a good look at yourself.
What is in the heart of a stranger i dont know.
True, the few people that I think are nasty are friends with other people here. But I have seen them have conflict with many people here.
But they can be nasty and mean for so reason towards others, I wonder if their friends see this or not.
I am talking about people who say hateful things when not prevoked.
When you see someone be nasty and mean remember you often don't know the full story - and some people seem to have a knack of making threads that present them in the worst possible light and don't even seem to realise it.
Your answer is in your question, "What drives nasty, miserable people?"
That is very true but at some point their venom begins to poison the water supply so "That is just the way I am" no longer cuts it. THe only problem on this board is that many of the people who complain the loudest about others being a problem have been complained about by others for the same thing.
It's amazing how people can shift the blame for their faults onto others What happened to social skills?
"Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it."
Some people are that way because they don't know any better.
They're still in Plato's cave, watching the shadows on the wall, unaware that there are other ways to see and other ways to behave.
And people trap themselves into their behavior because they feel what they do is inevitable, and nothing else matters.
