To all of you who attacked (yes, attacked) "Iheartmyfamily", this is for you.
While I agree she sounded immature in a few of her posts, she was acting out of shock and anger for the way you guys (especially "21st") responded to her and initially said hurtful things. I thought her choice to stay seated during the "family blessing" of the wedding was pretty immature because she did make that part about her; she should've just sucked it up and stood up, lying or not. She made it about her by staying seated out of spite and not "approving" of her cousin's wedding. But that still did not call for the kind of remarks you guys made. Now, I'm all for drama on the boards, but I've been on thebump, theknot, and thenest for almost a year and I can honestly say you all have taken things way too far.
What would've been necessary would be if people told her how she needed to suck it up and stand for the wedding and explain how that looks like she's making it about herself by not doing that. But you guys right off the bat started saying she was a spoiled brat (which she's far from - she's STARVING for attention, love, and acceptance because her family makes her feel inferior and unimportant.. that's sad!), and you had a mean manner to anything you had to say to her. I just want you all to know, you're not funny, witty , or clever with anything you said to her. It was all directed to hurt her, not help her.
It was incredibly awful to say "no wonder you have no friends and your family hates you". She doesn't deserve that. She doesn't sound like an awful person, just someone who's hurt because of the way she's been treated by family. I know this place isn't for support, it's a public message board, and I'm all for giving the hard truth to people who need it, but seriosuly.. you guys were incredibly unnecessary. She got defensive and started calling names because you guys hurt her and she didn't understand why she was being treated that way. Yes, the lawyer bit is pretty unrealistic, and she'll soon realize she can't do anything and just needs to move on. But you still have no right to say she has a "mental illness" or say any other offensive things, public message board or not. And if I read right, I thought the rules here state that you can't repost a drama thread? I mean I used to do that and was corrected for it because someone told me you can get banned for that depending on the situation. I don't know, it just doesn't seem right to me what you guys did to her.
I hope you all feel victorious or whatever you were seeking in treating her the way you did, but just know it was not right. Now go ahead and flame me, call me names, whatever you want. I don't care because that'll just show your immaturity more and that you're defending the fact that I'm right. Carry on!
