What is the meanest thing anyone has ever said to you?

    My (soon to be) ex husband told me that I'm a loser and my father would've never liked me. The reason that was such a hurtful statement; I knew my entire life that my mother had been lying about my biological father. She told my sister and I that we had the same father, but It was obvious to everyone that that wasn't true. We asked her several times throughout our childhood, who my father was. Finally at the age of 23 she decided to tell me who my real father was. He wasn't a loser (she's been married 6 times, 5 of them idiots)! He was a great person but she only remembered his name, nothing else. Anyway, I spent over seven years trying to find him on limited finances. Finally an amazing event happened and a stranger found him for me in one hour! It was the best day of my life, finally knowing, having my father! But he had passed away two years prior, complications from Hep C that he contracted in Vietnam.

    To say the least, this was one of the most hurtful things anyone has ever said to me. The four siblings that my father gave me later in his life, told me that he'd love me and be proud of me, just like he was for them. He was an amazing man who loved his family more than anything and also loved everyone around him. He would've loved me, he would've been proud of me, he would never have talked to me like my husband has. It's very sad that some people must talk to people they supposedly love, like dogs. They have no idea what it does to a victims heart. Yes, we can always let it go in one ear and out the other but intensely hurtful statements stick with us. I'm sorry for anyone that's been verbally/mentally abused in any way! I'll pray for you.

    I have had many people say many hurtful things to me.  Some people get jealous for whatever reason (I really do not know why people get jealous let alone why jealous of me) but I try not to let it get to me. 
    I can't really think of the meanest thing tho my ex tried making me look like a bad Mom to my daughter and told me it was my fault something happened in front of her.  It was something he did but in front of her he said it was me who did it.  That to me was one of the worst because he tried to make my daughter think I did something bad.
    If it doesn't involve my kids, I take any mean things well.  I don't let mean words let me down and I try to think that they say it just because they are jealous or something.

    When I look at you, I see nothing.  By someone I had thought was a good friend.

    The one that I remember the most would be "the only man who will like you is a ghetto lowlife". That one made me feel bad at the time but now I would laugh at someone who said it to me. I've been told so many mean things that I rate them for being creative or just ignore them and move on with my life. They are just people and their words are worthless to me.

    When I was at High School I really fancied this guy, he liked another girl but she detested him. He told one of his friends to tell me 'you are an ugly bitch!'. At fourteen I really took that to heart and was devastated! I laugh about it now and epsecially when I see that guy now, he's an absolute dork!

    "You are stupid" or "you are not as smart as me".  I don't see why people want to belittle others.  For some time, I actually believed it.

    Can't say for sure but i hate someone calling me names or trying to make me look bad in front of others.

    My friends do that often back in college. But things ve changed now cos i don't really care what others do to make me feel bad. I do my thing the best possible right way. Thanks

    During the initial stages of my divorce my ex wife told me that after 26 years of being together she couldn't think of one happy time...bizarre that if things were that bad she waited so long. Personally I remember some really great, happy times! Her saying that just added to my confusion and heartbreak at the time...maybe that is why she said it!

    The worst thing that stuck with me for over 40 years.  My mom and I were at my aunt and uncle's watching TV. (1960's) The BeechNut gum commercial came on and had this cut teenage girl on it.  My mom looked at me and said, "Why can't you be cute like that?"

    Ouch...I'm 59 now and it still hurts.

    "How can you be so smart and yet so stupid?"

    "You STILL haven't figured that out?"

    "Do I need to draw you a map?"  (HELL NO!   That's the worst you could do, idiot)

    "Why can't you just use your head?"

    "Do I have to explain EVERYTHING?"  (Duh!  Yes, jerk.)

    "Can't you be more (organized, normal, responsible, like a boy/man, "together", helpful, independent, neat, orderly, thick-skinned, like other people)?

    "Seriously?"

    When i was pursuing my Engineering i was totally careless. I didn't care about the time which i spend in doing useless things and sleeping. I was not serious about my studies. I spend a lot of money at that time. Then one day my Father said:

    "Once this time went by you have nothing to do. Because time will never wait for anyone. You are not respecting time you waste it doing your useless things instead of your studies."

    At that time i thought it was useless thing. I can do what so ever i would like to do.
    But seriously i was wrong.

    Well, maybe not the "meanest" but the most lingering......


    My Dad said,

    " if you had been a puppy, I would have drowned you"..........


    I was a terribly sick babe......." doctors" gave me little chance of surviving.  Yet, here I am, the mom of 3 and the Grandmother of 2.

    My Grandmother told me, it was the only time, that she saw my Dad, as a grown man, cry.

    I'm sure I've been told many mean things in my life, but I can't remember most of them - and that's exactly how it should be!

    "When -BLANK- leaves you, you are going to be all alone and die alone because no one is ever going to love you again!"

    A so called "friend" I knew since I was 3 said that to me 5 or 6 years ago. I no longer speak to her. She said that about my ex-boyfriend. Funny thing is, I left him and I am now engaged to someone new. smile
