I am trying to decide if I am too thin skinned. I had someone say something to me last night that really ticked me off. It was a pretty dumb comment but truthfully I am offended because it was just flat out rude. I have had problems with this person before, so it is hard to keep in mind that this comment may not have been intentionally hurtful. I can't avoid this person, no explanation, it just cant be done. I also have spent way too much time in my life worrying about not saying things back that could be hurtful. It is hard when she obviously doesn't give me the same consideration. She doesn't appear to care whether she hurts my feelings. What's stupid is that the comment she made wasn't even particularly hurtful, it is just another in a long string of them. I have been hurt far too often. I am getting really tired of this. I need to decide if I am going to give in and be just as petty and hurtful, or am I going to continue to be slapped in the face whenever she is around. The only other option is to completely distance myself and hope that the consequences don't hurt even more. I just don't know what to do... sometimes I think she is so hard hearted that she wouldn't even notice anyway. It is so thoroughly depressing to have someone, anyone, treat you this way.

Been there! I try really hard not to get offended by things people say, but sometimes, enough is enough.
Have you tried talking to her? maybe she doesn't realize how she is coming off?
Maybe next time she says something, say, hey, you know, that was rude. Or something.

Or maybe just try to avoid that person..

good luck!
