Hurt For the Fun Of It

Updated on April 2, 2016

How Could Someone Be So Mean ?


Do you think it's funny ?

Lifting yourself up to put me down

It happened often

More than we want to remember

Pushy and bossy

An emptyness on the deepest levels

One that can never be traced

Not in written text

Sly undermining all self worth

The pain that leaves no scars

An emotional termoil

That makes the ground you walk on shake

Where I'm always wrong and you have to be right

Cheered on by your peers

Born of the same blood

We shed different tears

It wasn't right then

Not right now

Even though the wounds have healed

Once I was bitter and disappointed

What would of been cool

If you could of only tried

I have forgiveness and compassion

One day you might see

What I wanted to believe

How great it could of been

So much more than two boys fighting

We could of been best of friends

      Gypsy Rose Lee I love to appreciate everyone. Maybe the others will come around. If not I can't worry about that. I spend my time with the people who mean the most to me. Thanks for all your inspirational words. (SHELLS)

      Michael-Milec I remember trying to avoid future situations and because we were always together that was never to happen. I felt trapped and powerless. In my mind I have replayed the same situation and gave it the ending I wanted to happen. So my mind could let it go and focus on better things in life. Life and our thoughts and our emotions can be very confusing at times. I always look toward the future making new memories that will replace old ones. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      Not every person has interest to grow up and mature. you should know them and ignore. That is what I do with fewer words and a smile, never going back in time and events. Life is precious commodity and no moment comes back... Let anyone who wants to reach you, move closer to your level, you are surrounded with good friends.

      By the way, you don't have to accept what doesn't fit you just because someone says something. People tend to view others with their own ability to see and perceive. Often it's influenced by hangups of their own. So if it's not "you", just let it go. You can't untangle someone else's tangles. But you don't have to get caught up in them. Forgive and be at peace.

      Just remember that a mean spirit hurts the one who possesses it much more than it could ever hurt anyone else. And if hurting is someone's sick idea of 'fun', then it's all the more sad for that person who thinks that. Remember that you're above it, not part of it, whatever the meanness has been. Forgiveness frees yourself. Hugs.

      Time and distance definitely have a way of making all of the negative things seem so small and less important. Perhaps that is the lesson too?

      Shanmarie Years have made it easier to accept and understand it. You said it best it's never easy to explain and maybe it was so I will never treat someone like that. Thank you for your response and your kindness.

      First, just letting you know I did get the message you just sent right before finding this hub. Second, if you are talking about the last hub I wrote, the reply I left for Faith Reaper might be of interest. It's always hardest when those we love treat us unfairly. And when those we are supposed to stand by are purposefully mean (as kids often are) it is even harder. Unfortunately, I have to watch my own children experience the same things from their peers. It's never easy trying to explain that some people are just bullies and others do not mean to be hurtful. How do they learn to tell the difference? And how do they learn what friendships are real enough to let go of all of the things that are less important than the good times and love? It's never easy.

      We just learn all of that as we grow. Forgiveness and compassion is a good thing. It can hurt at times long after the fact, and it takes longer to process the initial emotions when hurt is involved, but it is better than a bitter and hardened heart, I think.

      Or perhaps, the mean ones grow up one day and realize they should not have behaved in such a way. I think of Tim McGraw's song "One of These Days". Powerful lyrics there. It's about a bully who grew up and now has to learn to love himself. He remembers that he hurt these people terribly and that they could've been great friends.
