how can I not let what others say hurt me? It always hits the heart hard and I wish I could just ignore it but don't know how

If it's hurting you that much, you shouldn't ignore it. Do something about it! Stand up for yourself! People always told me to just ignore it but that made it hurt more. ignoring it WON'T make it stop, no matter what anyone says. they shouldn't be allowed to hurt you like this! I am extremely emotionally weak and I have no self esteem. Don't let the same happen to you!

And you try to do the same. You cared enough to give a very caring & intelligent answer, so obviously you have the mental ability to stand up for yourself. The older I get, the less BS I'll put up with.

Ignoring it only leads to an unhealthy amount of bottled up emotions, whats best is to take charge of the issue, seek help from a parent, counseller etc. if you don't, no one will

This chick hates her parent, she's just thinking about herself, I wouldn't worry too much about her, she's all about taking care of herself.

Sounds like you have some unkind acquaintances, ignore them. You don't deserve that, but "girls" don't deserve your comment either.

Remember you are strong, smart and engaging. Always remember your best qualities. all of us go thru this at times. I tell myself as I look in a mirror that most people feel the same way that you and I feel. Some are just better at hiding it. Become one of those. Take a big breath and just wade in. Talk to people first and get the first advantage. Remember:ALMOST EVERYONE FEELS THE SAME WAY

Any criticism be it constructive or degrating should be the fuel that propell you to be a better person. Don't prove anyone anything however, prove your self that not matter what any person say about you; you yourself is better than they. People will talk about you when they know that you're good and they themself cannot be like you...so live happy n healthy...cheers!!!!!

Just trust yourself and face it , don't give a damn about what people around you say, act normal, maybe when people realize that you completely don't care , they'll stop , i had the same problem at school but after a few years i became really popular, DON'T GIVE UP !

I'm the same way :(... I remember everything mean someone has ever said to me, but I forget the nice things a lot. I don't know why, but it shouldn't matter! People need to be more kind! There's nothing wrong with you; it's something wrong with the evil world we live in where they don't believe words hurt!

Find your self. Know who you are what your about. Keep that head up and feet always moving forward. There will be people like this in your life forever.. They are bringing you down but press on.. Life is fun but there is always those people who make it seem like hell.. Karma is a biatch...... You good kid just find yourself no one else will matter..
