  • Consider the source. Consider the source. Consider the source.

  • The depressed part wouldn't bug me, but the white trash might. But like PP said, consider the source! Guaranteed they're way trashier than you.

  • Don't let this bring you down to their level of low class negativity. Find empowering phrases so that you can believe more in yourself and not as to what others think.

  • Wow. Some people can't feel good about themselves unless they are making others feel shitty. Just remember that you are the master of your life and destiny. If you are depressed, go see someone and figure out why and start healing. Life is to be lived and enjoyed. Don't miss out on it. Take control and fix it. Ignore idiotic people who have nothing else to do but be rude.

  • Well, I wont say that it wouldnt hurt, but likely I wouldnt let it get to me. I am pretty self assured that I am not white trash so I would, like the first post said, consider the source. I said one time that some could call me fat and ugly and it might hurt my feelings, but they could call me stupid and I would laugh. I know that I am not stupid and I know that I am not white trash. I have been accused of being a snob and uppity and that hurts me more because I really dont want to be perceived as such. I really do try to be compassionate and like everyone and accept everyone. I do have a standard of how I want to dress my children and how I present myself, but that is my personal standard. I dont hold anyone to that, its just for me. If you know youre not, then....let them just think whatever they want. Like you said...whatever helpst hem sleep at night.

  • Not especially. I am white, but certainly not "trash". No human being is trash, and I am most definitely not in the category of people who ordinarily get called suich an ugly thing. Nor am I depressed.

    If you are depressed, and internalizing this kind of ignorant crap is very often a sign of that, then talk to someone who can help you. A lot of the time, it is depression, low self esteem, and a poor sense of self worth that make us vulnerable to the mean things others say, because somewhere within ourselves, we are afraid that they are right. Even when they're not. Whe you feel good about yourself and are confident in who you are, this kind of thing doesn't have much effect on you. If you need some help getting to that good place in your own head, then get that help.
