    We are all spiritual beings whether we are in tune with our higher state of awareness or not. When we hurt someone's feelings I believe we are in the same hurting ourselves to some degree. Many can relate to this by feeling bad after saying or doing something out of character. Some just blindly ignore it.

    I for one can relate to this. I will feel bad after I say something that is not true about someone, which is why I tend to speak less and listen and watch more. We are all connected on a higher level of thought and existence, so when we hurt someone we are sending out a signal that we don't love oursleves and we deserve to be punished because of the act or thought we are sending (or have sent) out. It is an invisible boomerang that has to come back at us no matter what we do, good or bad.

    Well if you said something purposefully mean, you should feel bad. I don't know if it's a sin.  But if you didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings, I think you're just being thoughtless. Sometimes I'm thoughtless too though but I don't think that's a big sin either.

    Because hurt breeds anger which, in turn, spreads like a disease to others.

    It's not really a horrible 'sin' because some people's feelings get hurt when they don't get exactly what they want from you...and that's just too bad for them, really.
