You know, Facebook is great. Every time I get hit by a wave of self-pity or resentment or nostalgia, I can use Facebook to search for the evil bitches in junior high who made fun of me and see how much worse their lives are than mine. Is this a nasty behavior? Of course it is. But it feels really good.
(My personal favorite: the girl whose grades were always a hair higher than mine, to whom teachers constantly compared me – negatively – dropped out of high school to have the first of her four kids. I sincerely hope she’s happy as a mother, but I like that I’ve been ultimately more academically successful. I know that’s horribly bitchy, but it’s also extremely gratifying.)
So my question for you is: what are the ways you’ve dealt with negative people and issues from your past? Revenge? Triumph? Therapy? Ice cream therapy? Maybe even reconciliation?
Or are y’all just Facebook stalkers like me?
