If being called a name offends you, can you explain why?

Name calling attempts to reduce a persons esteem. It is human mature to seek appreciation and acknowledgement. Name calling attacks self worth and often ostracize the victim. You can deny its effect, but you cannot totally escape the influence.

It offends my honor and trust that I have spent a lot of time building.

It varies based upon who said it, the intention and the number of incidents.

It depends what they call me ,but it's not the word, I'm offended by their disrespect.

I explained that in the previous poll. When I know there's no truth in the characterization and that correcting them will only make me sound egotistical, I'm frustrated, because I can't just leave the record uncorrected, so I go ahead & correct them.

I'm not certain of my own self worth. So if you tell me I'm a piece of crap, well..
maybe you're right.
And yes I know that means I am pretty weak.

Never say that. You're not, Hayley.
I love you, girl! :)
