What do we do when someone says mean things?

Remember that you do not deserve it EVER. You can call them on

it by asking them why they would ever say something so hurtful (if

they are in front of friends, so much the better), or you can walk

away, giving no response. You don't need to add to your woes by

feeling that you should be able to come up with something clever

before you comment. Also, do not try to respond in kind since that

makes you no better than that someone. Good luck and remember that

there are plenty of decent people around to focus on.

Another thing to remember is that the person saying something

mean has the problem, not you. A person who is mean is usually

compensating for something that they are lacking.
