Being Willfully Inconsiderate is a form of Bullying! -

I hope you're having a groovy day!
Being willfully inconsiderate of someone is a form of bullying.
Years ago I had a very close friend named Holly. She struggled with her weight. She was always on one diet or another. Everyone who was close to her knew this - especially her family. But what did her mom always give Holly for her birthday? Home-baked 'treats'. Cookies and cakes. Over and over again - for YEARS - Holly asked her mom - BEGGED HER MOM - NOT to give her FOOD for 'presents'. But her mom never listened. Now some might argue, "Well.. that's her mom. She's just trying to do something 'nice'!" But MEANNESS isn't NICE! Unless her mom was mentally ill - suffering perhaps from dementia - then 'mom' is being willfully inconsiderate. MOM is a BULLY.
When we love someone - we are SUPPOSED to take THEIR thoughts and feelings into consideration. We do not DO or SAY something to them that they have told us over and over again HURTS them. We do NOT bully someone we love. [We should never bully ANYONE!] And we do not demand that they 'thank' us for being so inconsiderate. "Thank you once again for not giving a damn about ME"! NO ONE has a right to be a bully. And that includes dear old mom.

Thank you for sharing this! I too agree that we should always listen and take other people's opinions into consideration, no matter the relation or how much we may want the opposite for them. To not respect how others feel is definitely an insult to them.
