Insecure People Suck: A Rant of Epic Proportions

This about covers it...........uh right.

Dear insecure people,

You suck. I don't try to ruin your lives...why do you try to ruin mine?

No love,
M. Rose

This rant was inspired by a quote. It's at the bottom of the page.

Insecure people are like locusts. They're everywhere, they're insanely annoying, and in large quantities, they're enough to drive you out of town.

The worst part about insecure people is that they try to bring you down because it makes them feel better about themselves. What kind of principle is that to live by? If somebody else is feeling crappy, you feel less crappy? That doesn't make sense! It's completely nonsensical. That's like saying if somebody else buys fresh vegetables in the grocery store, you're going to get some of those nutrients, even though you're buying Ho-Hos and frozen pizzas. Can anyone explain this twisted logic?

I think insecure people live by the phrase "Misery loves company." They're miserable because they don't like themselves, so they try to make the rest of us hate ourselves too. And they'll try to do this by any means necessary. They will find whatever it is that makes you the most miserable and jump on it like it's the most fun roller coaster on the planet.

I've encountered bazillions of insecure people in my days, but my favorite story is one that happened when I was younger, back when everything was amazingly dramatic. I discovered that one of my friends was talking smack about me...on the internet. To complete strangers. She accused me of stealing her stuff and as her grand internet finale (after writing many other things), accused me of being a lesbian. Everything was completely made up, to the point that even my young self had a good laugh about it (before inevitably wanting to set her on fire). Apparently turning me into a theft-loving lesbian would have made me unhappy like she was. There's more to the story, but it's not as funny to describe. Insert typical teenage drama catfight scenes here.

That's why it's so bad when you're friends with somebody who's insecure. When they're feeling insecure (especially if something bad just happened to them), they'll go as far as flat out lying to you (or about you) so that you're miserable too. Bottom line: insecure people make terrible friends. But often, you only find out how insecure someone is when you've already been friends with them a long time and they've already tried to sabotage your life many times. So uncool!

So again I say...hey insecure people, I don't try to ruin your lives. I don't need to ruin anyone's life to feel good about myself. I know, it's a should try it. So why do you (unsuccessfully) try to ruin my life? Please, go away.

"Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great."

Mark Twain

Insecure people just want others to understand there problems because they don't even understand why they have them in the first place. It's not like they "try" to destroy your soul or something. If you let people drag you down they will however. Most cases insecure people have been shunned, bullied, etc etc when they were young or even their whole life. See what they are doing is projecting other peoples pain onto there own life and they look for the weakest ego to do so. It's not always on purpose either as because most social paths are also insecure. I'm not mad at these types of people unless safty is at risk. They just had a bad draw of the deck and need to realize that you can draw over again.

Nice!!..personally, I really love these people that tries to pull me down, not just because it's a "love your enemies" sort-a-thing, but because they are a sight to see when you rise up above them and you see their reactions - jealous, envious, lusting for your success..ahhh..haha..If you know what I, i'm bad..ahah

How odd. We must have a very different ideas about what constitutes 'the insecure' because loud-mouthed, public whiners who need to cry about it on blog pages are normally included under the same label.

Charli: Indeed. I call it "complaining."
