View Full Version : This is really getting to me ... I need some good vibes...

02-25-2003, 08:28 PM
This person keeps instant messenging(is that a word?) me on AIM and telling me I have no friends. It's really making me mad and upset. That's not the only person. :( I'm also being called nasty names, and then being told I'm not "cool" enough to know what they mean. People are also saying that I am flirting with the teachers and other, worse cruel things. OK, I'm really sorry about boring you with my stupid preteen nonsense and you're probably like "well here she goes again...." but I just need to vent badly. It really angers me because I know I am a geek and they know I know it's true. I don't know why I care all of a sudden, but I do. And when I said I had friends on Pet Talk, they made fun of me and called me a weirdo for having internet friends. Plus, I have tons of school friends, I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea. Now I wish I had a paper bag to put over my head. :( I'm not trying to "disturb" anyone here, I'm not socially outcasted and I certainly am not crazy, I'm sure you all went through this once. Thank God nobody knows about this board from my school, or this message would be printed out and hung for everyone to see. :( I'm sorry, I just had to vent. I hate school so much now, and I used to love it. I want to enjoy it, but when you're being called all these names it is hard. :( Once again, I'm sorry...I'm just so angry and sad and kind of stuck...:(
P.S. I promise after this post I will try my hardest not to bother you all with my stupid problems...I know you all are having trouble with worse things(not saying that's a good thing), and I do not want to sound like an idiot. I'm actually probably disturbing you all, and that was part of the promise I wrote to you guys. I'm sorry.

Why don't you block the person from your AIM list and delete him/her from the list? I'm sorry someone is being so mean to you. :( Personally, I use MSN (mainly because it uses email addresses so I don't accept anyone who's address I don't know) and I like MSN messenger WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than AOL. I only accept very close friends and relatives on my chat list. No one else. I don't chat with unknown people or people I don't like. I advise you to do the same.

Sometimes it helps to vent to people who do not know you (physically I mean). We know you through the Internet.

Do not respond to the instant messaging ..... IGNORE it, always. Do not even read it - DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY. Actually, you should block the number on your phone. I know we can do it here in Aussie, not sure about USA tho. Perhaps you should check.

YOU can rise above ANYONE who is mindless enough to want to call you names! It is not your fault they have no other interest in their life, and they live to try to make you miserable. DON'T LET THEM.

Don't let them know about your Pet Talk friends ...... 'cos we would not want them joining here anyway!

I know it is hard, but really, rise above it. You are better than they will ever be! REMEMBER THAT ALWAYS!!!:D

Now I would have sent you this via a PM, but thought others might want to add their thoughts too.

02-25-2003, 08:46 PM
Floppsy, you shouldn't apologize for this post!! You're feeling down, and people are treating you badly...you deserve some cheering up!

I would just suggest the same things the others have: ban them from PMing you. As for the emotional aspect, just cheer up...how cool can someone be that they have the time and inclination to do something as stupid and petty as that.

I think you're cool.:)

I had the same problem last year, needless to say I was herassed so bad I almost dropped out but instead I had an adult escort me to every class I then went to a new school, the one I'm at now. I'm not saying you should switch schools, EVERYONE at my old school hated me because I suposubly said that some one was a bitch and I would never say that about her, she was my best friend, O well. All I can say is just think how lonly they must be to have ot pick on you to make there day better, obviously they are not very secure people. I think you need to block them.

i hate ppl who like to drag others down :mad:....i know exactly how u feel....i felt so bad a while ago on a different forum on the internet when everyone was being really mean to me, so i left and came here and now im happy :) so be glad that u can come here to be happy....i dont think u r a geek, personally, i dont think there is such a thing...everybody is beautiful to somebody, and everybody is special to somebody, which cancels out any geekness :p
its alright to come here to vent, atleast everyone here is supportive and nice...i tend to do that too, although i have been holding off lol ;) so just spill, ppl here care enough to try and make u feel better :)

02-26-2003, 03:22 PM
Thanks so much everyone who sent me a PM or posted here. It really made me feel better. I just get so mad and frustrated that everyone demands "perfection"... except you guys of course. :)

02-26-2003, 03:39 PM
So glad you are feeling better Britt. I hope you will ignore all the mean and negative messages you get.

Glad you are feelign better I hoe you diddn't listen to them because you are a great person!

it is HARD to ignore the mean and nasty people of this world. And it is EASY for people like us to tell you to ignore them. But it is not that easy is it? Just know, that those people that try to drag you down are the real losers. You do not need their acceptance to be worthy. You are worhty just by being you.

oh and by the way, it is the "nerds" who run this world and it's the "jocks" and "cheerleaders" who work at McDonald's *

*(and to everyone who reads this, just try to get my point instead of COMPLAINING that you were a cheerleader and are a nice person......blah, blah, blah...... you know the point I am trying to make !!!!)

02-26-2003, 04:25 PM
Well said, Jen. I agree! :)

Britt, do you have the possibility to block certain words on your IM? Or simply block users you don't know! Or you could make a new account.

Cheer up sweetie! ;)

02-26-2003, 04:52 PM
i send you my PM with my story. :) don't let it get to you. ;)

02-26-2003, 05:01 PM
Glad to hear you are feeling better--some people are just awful. I would definitely block them from your aim list, and just come here when you want to cheer up--I do!!!

02-26-2003, 05:01 PM
Whoever that is that is telling you that you have no friends may not have many friends themself, and their idea of fun is telling you that you have no friends and making you feel bad so they won't be the only one.I agree that you should block that person from your buddy list.Don't let people who try to put you down bother you.

02-26-2003, 07:49 PM
Thanks so much. I am now going to give out my close friends the screen name I use for Pet Talk, or maybe I'll show them how to install MSN. I'd rather use MSN anyday, but I think I'm the only person in my school who has it. Anyway, thanks for all the help and support. I blocked the people who were saying nasty things to me, and I really don't care if they call me a coward in school. I bet the people who are bothering me are probably just trying to make me feel bad to cover up their own problems. You guys made me feel a lot better. :) Today I drew a drawing of what I thought Pet Talkville looked like. Too bad I don't have a scanner or I'd show you. ;) Thanks for cheering me up, it is really annoying, especially when this kid used to throw spit-balls at me in social studies! How dumb and immature. :rolleyes: :o Once again, thanks.

02-27-2003, 01:43 AM
It's good that you decided to block those mean kids. Whether they realise it or not, you are actually the braver one for walking away and not perpetuating the cycle. I give you a lot of credit for that :)

Britt, you've been working so hard the last few months on your exercise, diet and school results - and probably other things I might have missed. I really respect what you've been doing to set yourself up for a great life and career in the future. Much, much, much more productive than harassing people like those morons have been doing. Keep trying to ignore them - if they aren't supporting you or being your friend, they aren't worthy of your time :)

02-27-2003, 08:37 AM
Britt, so sorry to hear that people are (were) being so mean to you. I think people like that are just jealous, that's why they do the mean things they do. Like everyone else has said try to ignore them (even though I know that's easier said than done). Sometimes we need positive vibes from our friends (that's us;)). And I don't think you were bothering any of us with this post!

As I heard somebody else say, just block that person and any time anybody harrasses you online, block their screen name. Who needs people who put you down. You're a great person and I enjoy reading your posts. Don't worry about what people like that say. You don't know who they are now, so you really won't know who they are when you grow up and move on. Good luck on ignoring these people, but I truly think you should just do that, ignore the, they are nothing to you!

02-27-2003, 02:59 PM
Britt, everyone here has given you very good advice. I say, never, ever let someone attack your own self-esteem and certainly not a stranger who cannot even identify her(him)self!

You know who you are - a very good person - It is possible that you may have some "friends??" who are jealous of you.

Ignore all of them - and get on with being a wonderful young woman full of fun and life!

Anytime you want to vent - we are all here to listen and we will understand!

02-27-2003, 03:37 PM
Thanks so much.:) It makes me feel so much better that I have wonderful friends like you guys (and my friends at school). I am going to ignore them from now on.

02-27-2003, 03:53 PM
good for you :) you did a good thing to just ignore. :D
