  • i realize that you probably have some deep rooted self esteem issues and the only way you can deal with them is to bring down other people for it. it really is a shame that you can't just be a decent person and not attack people for something so trivial. i hope you realize that just like you all people have dignity and deserve respect :)

  • My self esteem is perfectly fine. People bring themselves down with stupid questions and stupid comments.

  • keep telling yourself that you have high self esteem and then maybe you will someday dear :)...because people with high self esteem don't have the need inside them to verbally attack.
