My XH, when I was in between jobs – not unemployed just waiting a month to start the new position – he said I had no purpose in life.  In front of my parents, too, who had driven over 1,000 miles to visit us for a week.

@lealorali:  When I was in junior high, and really awkward, pre-braces, overbite, acne, etc. This punk ass kid who’s locker was next to mine told me I was the ugliest person he had even seen.  He told me I looked like a horse, and then he started making horse noises, singing Mr. Ed theme song, etc etc.  Soon it caught on and 1/2 the 7th grade would make horse noises at me. It was so awful, I cried everyday. I got braces, and I grew into my own. I personally think I look pretty damn good these days, in fact, I would consider myself a hottie, and now I’d like to see that F****r and have a serious conversation with him.

I had a group of girls create a facebook page against me in college. This is was like 6-7 years ago so before the whole big bullying thing, but I had to get the college involved and they got into trouble.

@lealorali:  Yeah it was bad, it’s the kind of thing that stays with you forever! But here’s where karma kicked in…in 12th grade he was in a car accident and his front teeth went through his upper lip. His face was kinda mangled up…his lip was never right again.

My grandma told me I was fat when I was 13. I was, but she didn’t have to point it out! I still hold a grudge about it today.

The tie for meanest thing is what an ex-BF said to me once. He had broken up with his GF over almost two years about a month before we met, and after we had dated for a couple of weeks told me that I was “just like a bandaid, covering the wound so he didn’t have to see it anymore,” in reference to his ex. I was 16, and oh how I cried and cried after he said that.

@AirForceWife78:  I can relate to this one. When I was 15 there was a guy we hung around with a couple of years older who said I looked like Eddie Munster,had weird eyes and was fat. he shot what little self confidence I had to bits because I believed him. It took years to get over it and start to think I wasn’t that bad,probably till I met my first longterm boyfriend when I was 20 who told me I was beautiful and I started to believe it. Now I’m in my 30’s I happy in my own skin regardless what anyone else says and I think I’m kind of a hottie too 🙂

An ex-bf called me a worthless piece of shit and said I don’t deserve to live. Real sweet.

On my first day at a new highschool a guy called me a ‘Prawn’. When I asked what that meant he said ‘tasty body, shame about the head’

Everybody laughed 🙁

@Lindarella:  It’s awful isn’t it??? I tell people now that I used to be so awkward and insecure, they all think I was homecoming queen and head cheerleader…uggghh….no. Hardly! But I think it makes me a little more modest now, ya know? Sorry you had to go through that too!!!

I lived through kind of a fucked up/ traumatic childhood and I had an ex who said (while drunk) that he’s positive I made the whole thing up because I’m not interesting enough. He was the only person I had ever told at the time and it really, really hurt.  It took me 5 years (and FI to come along) to tell anyone else and I’m sure if I told FI my ex said that he would hunt him down…

Some people are so miserable they don’t even know how to communicate with others.  Lots of tormentors ITT sound like that.

@AirForceWife78:  Its horrible. I think there is a time in our teenaged years when we are trying to figure out who we are that stuff like that can be really damaging. I have an 11 year old son and try to instil in him you don’t be mean to others like that about their physical appearance or anything else. No one is perfect!
