Do you get upset or hurt when people try to insult you or call you names online?? Even though some people have assumed, others know I don't. I find it hilarious.
I mean, why would people be stupid enough to think that they're so all powerful that their words are going to really affect you? A faceless stranger on the internet? Don't make your self more important than you really are.
And just like with a lot of things, the insults are more about the insulter than the person they're insulting. There's many reasons people resort to insults.
Some people are incapable of holding down an actual conversation unless someone is totally agreeing with them. Get over it. Not everyone is going to agree with you. And you don't need to agree with everyone. And you can rant and rave/insult/name-call if you want, but that says more about your character or lack there of if you can't even control yourself.
Some people can't control their anger. It's easy to get irritated or angry. I'm sure we all do. But it's how you handle that anger/irritation. Just like people shouldn't let peoples insults get to them, why would you let Someone's difference of opinion get to you so much that you make yourself look bad trying to make someone else look bad?
The need to always be right
I mean if people get that triggered because a stranger's view differs from theirs, how do they treat the people in real life who don't agree with them? It's funny especially when people call other people stupid. You're the one who let a stranger get to you so bad you resorted to acting like a child having a temper tantrum, but they're stupid?? No they're the smart ones that still conduct themselves with respect while you get angrier and angrier. And that's smart? 🤷🏼♀️
Insulting someone you don't know at all is just really immature. I actually get very amused by it myself. While I don't name-call, I may get sarcastically nice which pisses them off more 🤣 I may be many things, but not stupid enough to take people like that seriously.
Seeking power/control they can't get in real life
Some people can only feel or think it makes them more powerful trying to put someone else down. Or come off like they're opinion is fact. But again in trying to make someone look stupid or weak by insults just backfires, reflects back on you.
Sometimes people get so triggered offensive because they are guilty themselves of what's being discussed. Like you coming at them personally and their situation. Which reeks of guilty conscious to me. But I'm not going to sugar coat what I say just because someone can't handle it But hey, at least I do it respectfully. Well, mostly 🙂
Unfortunately, there's always going to be disrespectful people. But don't stoop to their level, don't give them that power. Walking away from an insulting idiot doesn't make you a coward, it makes you the smarter, stronger person.
