Oh yes, I do know exactly how you feel. Do you know why you feel like this? It's called having a heart, it just means that you are sensitive and that you care, and that you are a very considerate person. People like us tend to get crushed easily because we kind of carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. What I mean by that is that we kind of feel guilty about almost anything that happens to others even if we have nothing to do with it. You see some people at times like to target people like us as punching bags because we can easily be emotionaly shaken. Kind of a guaranteed satisfaction from getting a reaction.
Here's a little secret I will tell you that can make a big difference on how you will feel about days like that:
Did you know that when people talk down to you or try to crush you, that they are actually revealing their own weaknesses. If someone, for example; tells you that you are a lousy employee, then what that means is that, that person deep inside feels insecure about his own competence. Insecure people like to crush others to make themselves feel better. They try to correct what they perceive as being flaws in others, when in reality it's their own inner insecurity that's eating at them and causing them to snap at others. When someone treats me that way, I try see that person as being "confused" and at best as I can, I try to not take it personaly because I didn't do anything wrong and whatever is eating that person is not my problem.
Another thing I would also like to toss at you as an advice is:
When you feel like that, when you have those down days, look at yourself in the mirror and smile. Because you have somthing to be very proud of, and you should never frown upon it because you actually have a functional heart, not many people out there is equipped with such a heart. You care, you are considerate that's why you have such feelings of despair at times. It's a big sign that says that you are a good person. And don't forget as well, that you are only human and that it's not normal to always be in a cheery mood, your not a machine, you are not supposed to be perfectly happy and extremely productive all the time. Take it easy and, treat yourself with the respect that you deserve and put that good heart of yours on a piedestal.
I realy feel for you and hope this helps!
