Video: When People Say Mean Things

Sometimes intentionally, sometimes on accident… either way, painful comments will be made after you’ve had a loss. Three teens share their stories of insensitive comments and how they responded.

    Ignore them! They’re just immature idiotic ninnies if they insult you. Besides, why would you ever care what anyone thinks? (Um, you know, most of the time) Plus, ignoring infuriates them (which can be sort of amusing, to watch those fools turn bright red, clench their fists, and so on, while you calmly stand there, staring at them), and responding might get you in serious hot water!

    My dad died when I was six. This video really got to me. My friends always say that they hate their dad and they just wish they didn’t live at home, but really, if I could, I would have my dad. And I would be thankful that I lived with him, and that he was still here. Unless you’ve experienced this kind of loss, you shouldn’t say anything like that. It’s not fair to those who didn’t deserve for their parent to die.

    Since what has happened, Ive become to be very short tempered when it gets to that point of someone pushing it to far, I compose myself amazingly to any other topic in life in general, but when someone brings up my sister or my grandpa or a reference to something I don’t like hearing about death, I feel like I should speak up and tell that person the true perspective of what it is their blabbering about.
    and no I don’t g off the chain swinging at people and yelling lol, I respectively tell them to ‘zip their lip’ 🙂
