It seems like most people - in person and online - are more mean and rude than ever before. These people are out to always be right and put everyone else down.

I quit social media because of this, but I do some freelance writing on a website. No matter what I write (it's recipes mostly) there's always someone who makes a rude comment, or tells me I'm wrong for how I do something, or says my information is wrong, then goes on a long tangent about how they're right. Then they insult me and call me stupid. This is literally everything I write, and it's always someone different. If I tell them they don't need to be rude, they flip it around and tell me they weren't and insult me again, like telling me "no need to freak out" or "calm down" when I literally only told them to not be rude.. No matter what, everyone gets the upper hand on me.

Interacting with people is like a constant battle to see who can be on top, and push everyone else down. Driving, working, grocery shopping -- it's all literally a battle of pushing in front of the line, cutting people off, etc. I don't do any of that, but it's everyone else doing it to me. I don't get it.

I wish I didn't have to be part of the world anymore -- not necessarily die, but I'd like to live far away from society. I can't handle this constant barrage of meanness from the human race. I wish the world would be given back to the animals because they deserve it much more than humans do.

One of the major channels here (in the UK) is kicking back against online hate and revealed virtually all of their presenters/contributors had experienced it. I think it is too easy for people to be critical online.

My view is if people aren't going to be constructive in criticism then its best ignored. Another way to look at things is that, for your writing, the majority of people probably get something positive from it but may choose not to comment. Sometimes its just the angry people who do.

There are a lot of decent people in the world, don't let the angry few spoil it for you.

hey, my goodness please don't leave this world, the world cannot afford to lose any more kind people. The world can feel hard that is for sure, I feel like society has got has got meaner somehow, I have felt for ages that we are being manipulated into not caring and division is the goal for a lot of powerful people, in this life find the kind/good/nice people and stick with them, there are lovely people doing good things everywhere, know that you are a good person and in my book that is everything, just try and ignore those people, they are haters & bullies, hope you feel better soon

Hi @strawberrywater
I'm sorry how you feel that most people are mean and rude. I think that your writing your post is cathartic for you. Would you consider seeing a therapist for talk therapy? I really think that would help you.

Hi @strawberrywater how awful that you are the target of bullying and negativity online. What are the advantages to staying on that site versus going to a different website that offers similar publishing opportunities? Do you think the same thing would happen at those other places? What about not posting in those online forums anymore at all? At least that way it wouldn’t give the haters, bullies and trolls the opportunity to harm you. xo, j

I was in therapy for a month before I couldn't afford it anymore. I don't have health insurance at the moment, but whenever I do I will go back

Get off of Facebook, Twitter and other platforms like that. Best thing I ever did was delete my FB account, that site has become toxic with all the hatred, heavy handed oversight and the endless bickering and 'fact checking'. Like I need that in my life! Never again.

I did a few months ago and yes, it's the best thing I did too. You're right, it's so toxic. I found myself upset every day about things all over major social media and now I'm not

Those who have suffered know what it feels like to suffer. That is the strange thing about suffering. Even though it hurts, it makes us want to show the kindness we know we need so much. Don't give up! We need you here! I bet if you share recipes here (Try the Member's Gallery) you will get lots of positive feedback!

most humans are scumbags, be grateful your not like them. I was laughed at by a former neighbour and her friend, as she was dropped off the other day. She viciously stared at me before going in her house and chatting with her. Then her friend drove off laughing, as she looked at me. Obviously it was at me, of course it was. They don't even know half of the mental suffering and pstd I have from co-workers and even strangers, laughing at me in the past. Now I have to put up with it in my own drive? It makes me violent and just want to attack the two of them, big time.

In terms of the online bullies, I think their should be more done about it. Harsher crimes and penalties, I'd throw the book at them. If you can't be respectful online/offline, you can either be killed by capital punishment or be in prison for a very long time. Theirs 6-7 billion people for good sake, why do we always give bad people the rights/freedom they don't deserve? As someone above rightly said, the higher power wants us to be divided, most likely due to money and power. If your in a selfish/hateful enviroment long enough, your either destroyed by it or you become hateful yourself.

You know whats worse, society and scumbags can bring out the ugly sides in ourselfs, we try so hard to avoid. Pretty hard to stay non violent and sane, when society/people are constantly pushing our buttons. Big well done, if you can. We just want peace, thats all. Well, seems like only a minority of us do these days. Sometimes I just think its against our nature to be peaceful. The majority of people seem to enjoy hurting and bringing others down, even killing them. Its a horrible world we live in. The internet just starting taking off during my generation (2000's), but I've seen a massive decline in the world/society in the last 10 years. As much as we all enjoy the nicer parts of it, its had a massive negative impact on humanity.

I'm sorry for your online abuse and my advice would be either two things: a: keep doing it if its mostly positive reviews and you enjoy doing it or b: stop doing it if its getting too much for you, mentally. Best of luck with either option.
