All of us have had unkind things spewed at us at some point or another in life. They say it takes 7 positive statements to offset 1 negative one, so try to remember the compliments you've been given throughout the years. Think on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy. It can help heal a wounded heart.

I am writing my educational blog on useful resources. Students often ask a lot of questions in the field of education. The main question is how to minimize the burden on universities. I always give a list of paper writing service that will help solve frequent problems. The first resource is
. He helps to write unique texts. The second resource is Web Archive - it will help you find old articles.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said,"No one can make us feel inferior without our consent". We can't change people. We can only change how we react to them.

I'm going to tell you a true story about Winston Churchill.

At some event, he got into an argument with a woman who exclaimed,"You sir are drunk". He replied,"and you are ugly. tomorrow morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly".

That is how you respond to nasty remarks. Some people are rude and need to learn some manners. Maybe someone called you fat. How to reply ? Yes, today I am fat. Tomorrow I will be lean and mean and you will still be an idiot !

Negative words can be changed into positive ones.

I am so sorry someone used words to hurt you. Kris has shared some wise advice. Time will make the hurt less.

I think that perhaps the best way to deal with this is by telling yourself that we can't control what others say, and sometimes they will say things that THEY know aren't true, but say it to cause pain to others. Tell yourself that you are above that.

I have had it happen with regard to me, too, but what it comes down to is that the person who uttered those words didn't know the facts and had (has) an extremely high ego/opinion of himself and doesn't like it when others don't share that same opinion or don't grovel. I accepted long ago 'his problem' 'his issues' and left it at that ..... even tho' what was said was very untrue and hurtful.

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but, words will never hurt me."

Unfortunately, we know this NOT to be true. I am heartbroken & trying to unhear some very unkind words.
