  • I to am like you....I've always been respectful to people, those I don't know and those I know. In the last few years I've been treated like crap by some family members and it's harden my heart and because of that I've changed, I don't think for the better, but now I don't put up with disrespect AT ALL from anyone. Here I used to be a really nice person and it showed to know being a big fat Bi..otch!!! I keep in mind this to....they made me who I am today....although I KNOW I don't have to be a biotch...I just pick and choose my battles. I don't walk out the door and just start being mean and dispectful though...just when I have to.

  • If someone treats me like shit...I get fed up but I TRY to be nice no matter what...if it keeps happening I usually will say something like, "show me a little respect please." If they still pull there crap, I get them out of my life.

  • I feel what you are feeling. I have the samething happen to me all the time. And ironically enough it is always the ppl whose opinions I most value. I always hear "kill them with kindenss" but sometimes that doesnt work. i say treat them the way that they treat you. i dont think ANYONE should be treated badly, even if they deserved it, but you have cross paths with ppl who have miserable upbringing and always walk around with a chip on their shoulder. they feel like the world owes them something.

  • thats a great saying "treat people like you'd like to be treated" but not everyone gets that whole concept. I'm just a friendly person by nature and kind and respectful to most people, untill I felt like I was unappreaciated and used. another saying "the only people that can hurt you are the people you give the power to" you don't have to be disrespectful back if it's not in your nature. I don't know who is thats making you feel that way but if possible remove yourself from that persons power to affect you.

  • one word - disengage - get them out of your life and stop giving them power to hurt you. I did that with quite a few people and it works. I also learned not to be so nice anymore. I'm not going to let people treat me like shit anymore - I'm worth more than that.
