Have you ever been called worthless?

I've been called names over the years. Takes a bit of personal mental work to help develop a thick skin against name calling, if you aren't used to it. For example, I recently shared something on Face Book, without context on what I thought on it, and what happened? Someone in my friends list, immediately called me out as a Socialist, when they don't know me enough to make that judgement call. Personally? No, I am not a Socialist, but it is still shocking to have someone calling you something out of no where, that is just so shocking, because you never expect to be called that.

My suggestion, don't give into the name calling. If you do, it gives them place to mess with your mental health in the future.

Well said @Joshua Farrell. Am gonna long-press the "ignore" button and move ahead.
Actually, it doesn't make me less of a human being :-) Thanks for that detailed insight. Quite motivational.

I'm in complete agreement with @Joshua Farrell in that giving into it is what they want and what they need to get under your skin in the future. I've been called every name in the book, some I wouldn't even call my worst enemy, but you pick yourself up and carry on. Name calling does not impact you physically, and you shouldn't let it impact you mentally. Those who do it are weak willed and have reached the point where they have no more arguments left to make to counter whatever you have said, it's basically an admission of defeat. Take it as a moral victory and move on.

I will say, though, it can be very jarring when it's a family member doing the name calling, and it takes a lot to hold back in those cases, but do your best and you'll be fine. My mother has dementia, and when she's in a full blown mood she comes up with language I didn't even know she knew, and even though I'm aware it's not actually her calling me those names, it can hurt coming from her mouth. You just have to learn to not respond, keep doing what you're doing and take the high road.

Growing up my parents used to call me of sort of names. "You won't amount to anything", they used to say. That actually used to get to me until it didn't.

I have been called a lot of things while I was growing up and I didn't have anyone to share my problems.
I feel like it affected me in some way but am still working on my self and getting to better my self.
I think you shouldnt take in the insults because they are bad energy to your life and future too.

I have just been called worthless! And I thought who else has ever been in such a situation?
How did you handle it? .... I calmly thanked them.
I know what you're talking about too. No I have thankfully never been called that.

Nope I don't think I've been called that before and it's be rough for sure to go through it if you've been called that.

I've grown a thick skin over the years. Time has really helped me build an armor against such negative energy.
