Some people just can’t feel good about themselves without putting someone else down. I am genuinely sorry that their world is so small and that they are so insecure in it that they find it impossible to be positive or kind to others. I hope that you felt at least a bit more secure for putting me down today, that you found it just a bit more tolerable to live in your fragile little world. I wouldn’t trade places with you for love or money. I live in the sunshine, and you’re not big enough to cloud my sky.
Oh, and next time, I’m not going to just bite my tongue and shrug. FYI.
