I've come to realize that I am completely not used to hostility... I suppose I haven't experienced it often. I'm not exactly the type of person to provoke someone else. And even when hostility is directed towards another, I am uncomfortable and almost personally hurt by it. So when I do experience it, I suppose it can come as sort of a shock. I'm an emotional person, and I tend to dwell on things excessively. I take in every little thing and run it through my head over and over, until I am finally content with leaving it be.

So, while I suppose such a thing could be easily forgotten by another person, I have to live with the scrutiny of my own thoughts. One person, who I don't even know, and who certainly doesn't know me, left a comment in my livejournal about the quiz I had made, which was less than pleasant, and outright insulting. I deleted it, but that doesn't seem to help with clearing it from my mind. Some people simply don't have a clue... So why do their words hurt so much?

You can either stay in turmoil over it, or realize that people are stupid, and you're above that.

Neither is the better option, one just hurts less.

People sometimes say and do things to people they don't know, when they wouldn't do it to someone they do know. The reason is, partially at least, because they figure that you don't know each other, so it won't effect them in the future, and they don't care how the other person feels. Someone that inconsiderate and insensitive wouldn't say something they mean, so don't take it to heart. They probably said something trying to be funny, and what they said wasn't funny, or they said something just to be a jerk, but like I said, they didn't mean it, they just wanted to be a jerk.

hostility is natural. its like being territorial... just a thought...

That doesn't mean one should simply accept it or give in to it, however.
