I have an uncle that I swear just thrives off of certain “mature” posts on my Facebook page. He comments to the point of making me feel far-less superior than him and by making me look bad to everyone else when that is simply not my intention.
For instance today I posted this on my Facebook: “We can’t complain that life sucks. Circumstances may not be ideal but we’ve been blessed. It’s our choice what we do and if we want to change for the better.” I’ll admit the wording was less than ideal, but what I was really trying to say is that yes, life is extremely hard. But that we as America have been given all of these opportunities to make choices that decide our life’s path. We can’t be pissed at the world when it’s our own choice.
And he just made me feel like a complete moron, just because he knows he’s smart and because he is 9 yrs my superior. I don’t get it.
Can you explain the need to be cocky?

@SweetRose2011: He is trying to feel better about himself by putting others down.
It’s not about you, it’s about his own insecurity.
Plus, it’s your facebook wall… you can remove his comments.

@KatNYC2011:did that as I don’t appreciate him making me look bad.

@SweetRose2011: If honestly all he ever does is make snide comments on your wall, I’d block him from being able to view your wall.

@SweetRose2011: In my experience, people who do things like that aren’t nearly as smart as they think they are. He sounds pretty insecure, not to say immature.
Agree with KatNYC2011 that it would be best to just block him.

@KatNYC2011:well, the only reason I haven’t is because I do like him as a person and this happens rarely. But I think I will strongly consider it from now on because I’m pretty irritated at this.
@teaadntoast: oh yea, he’s immature. Real immature.

If you have to knit pick on others, you are probably insecure with yourself. So, I think he is probably insecure- or why would he pick a part your positive comment?

Girl, I completely understand! I am in law school, theres like 300 of those people in one building! I find that ignoring their comments really irritates them. 🙂

I would hide your status/wall updates from him. It’s very easy to do that in the FB privacy settings. You wouldn’t totally be blocking him, Just make him work harder at reacting to your posts.
