I consider what I like to be a bit weird at times, and sometimes people have hated on my likes and interests in some way or another.
I am quite sensitive about people hating on what I like and usually feel upset and disheartened when it happens.
I am not a reactor however; I have a personal rule of not going on the defensive and act upset or angrily when someone says something I donít like.
For example, on YouTube somebody said on a video that all people who like this video are fags. Some people responded to this and got angry and upset by the comment.
This wasnít the best way to deal with it in my opinion, even though I take things like that and get offended I donít then get angry back or find some way of insulting his or his or her interests or anything like that back. I either find a way of discussing it in a mature fashion or if itís 100% trolling leave it be, and donít give this person the satisfaction of a response.
What about you?
How do you take criticism and insults?
