This was something that I was thinking about in the shower. It still does make me angry that my ex best friends would come onto my profile whenever I’d talk about a song or an artist I’d relate too and they’d call it lame or stupid.
Don’t do that…Just don’t.
A lot of the reasons that someone likes an artist or likes a movie, or likes a style of art. Is because, to them, that represents who they are. It was always amazing too me how they’d get so upset when someone would put down something they like. Yet, they had no problems calling other people’s interests “lame”.
Understand that when you do this, you ARE putting down a part of that person. Especially if they are literally saying that they can relate. You are putting down a part of that person. If you don’t like it when others do it to you, I don’t know why someone would think it’d be alright to do it to others? We were told that we were not allowed to watch Mel Brooks films because he had made joke about Michael Jackson. Yet my “best friend” was allowed to come onto my profile and tell me what I like…was lame?
