When You Need to Stoop Down

I don't air grievances on Facebook.

Okay, I did it once. But only to defend myself from cyber attacks of people who were once significant to me. And that was it. I believe in taking the high road and not stooping down their level. I can bite my tongue and just let it slide even if there are already a hundred reasons to take out that inner bitch inside me.

People suck. That's a fact. I have high tolerance for rudeness, stupidity, jerks, assholes, hypocrites, and bullshit. I think I deserve a medal or a merit for this. But all I get is more assholes pushing me to the limits until bam! I just found myself mudslinging.

And you're reading one of my moments.

I have said words that hurt. Words that have long been kept on my mind. I wanted to take out all my trump cards and lay them down like I was going to win a poker game just because I wanted to see them go down. I wanted it to sting. I wanted them to hurt badly. I wanted them to feel what they made me feel. I fired bullets to the already wounded.

And I know I shouldn't have.

The counterattack didn't help. I wasn't able to get my point across. The shots fired did not make me feel good either. I took the low road to victory because I wanted the people to know that I was right and they were wrong. But I realized everybody's a loser there. And I see why it's called a low road. It is murky and shitty down there. And it's hard to get all the goo off your body after sinking deep in that shit. It's like all the values you hold have been stripped off and voided. What difference was I to them then?

No matter, I am still glad I took that road. It made me feel what it's like to be there, what it's like to be them. And bruce-almighty-forbid I become like them.

I do not want to be like them.

So the next time they throw mud at me and I have the urge to stoop down their level, this should remind me how shitty it is to be back there. That shit isn't worth it.

So for everyone who feels the need to retaliate, take the low road, and stoop down... Stop. You are better than that. BE CLASSY. It's the best payback to knock them down... and effortlessly at that! :)

  1. I have low tolerance for stupidity. Wag sila. Dahil raratratan ko yun. I can be a bitch both online and offline. But I choose my arguments. If he/she's not worth the argument, then I won't waste my time.

  4. Mag-anonymous lang ko kay basig ipahunting ko. Kay diba nag threat2x pa na sya atong pagbulag ninyo? Nisurok akong dugo pagkabasa ato sar. Papansin sya. Nangitag friends na maluoy sa iya. Makabeast mode. Pila na man katuig nilabay, sya pa magsugod ug skandalo. Bitter kaayo sya. Kay ngano bitaw gibuy-an. Di nako maimagine na natiis nimo sya for pila ka years.

  5. Nakakainis lang dahil gusto mo nga silang masaktan but sometimes pag sobrang kapal ng mukha nila, they won't feel anything. Better move on and forget them. hayyyy ang hirap magmove on! Charaught!

  6. To be classy and keep calm is always a good idea. Life is too short to argue with silly people. Don't let them put you down :)

  7. Sometimes I think we do need to retaliate, especially if I see someone being nasty I have low tolerance for that. But your right we need to know when to back off.

  9. This is so true! Especially on Facebook. Everything is misconstrued and misunderstood. I'm a big believer in picking up the phone or airing out disagreements in person!

  10. Very interesting post! ...but I still believe : "Don't Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering." - Don Miguel Ruiz :-)

  11. Nowadays when people seem to say almost anything via internet it's important not to take it personaly. Those people giving bad comments don't even know you and they are probably just jealous.

  12. In my contry there's a saying ,,Паметнији попушта" which means something like the smarter one turns the other cheek. There's nothing powerful then the feeling of clear conscience!

  13. Don't take negative people that seriously, girl! No point. Just let them go.

  14. I totally agree but some times you can't cope with them it is just too much. You can be as classy as you want but when you go back home and close that door you will still feel angry, hurt, disrespected. Thankfully experience helps to get over these situations faster.
