I do not like being laughed at...

It is going to sound really silly when I type this but I don't know i just guess maybe I am getting quite defensive of late, who knows, we'll see what you think!

One of my parents has a tendency to laugh a lot at things I say, and I don't mean like because I am being funny. I am being laughed at. I don't like having a hot drink too late in the evening so I just got asked if I wanted one, I said yes but just half a mug full I didn't want a whole mug! I was laughed at and I didn't like it and when I said this this person got really funny with me and started shouting at me but couldn't accept that they had upset me.

It really gets on my nerves but I am quite sensitive and I know if I did the snide laugh in return they would react the same but somehow I am always in the wrong!

Hi, no one likes to be laughed at it can really hurt some people. Have a great day and look after yourself.

That's really mean and childish for someone to treat you or anyone else that way. I'm sensitive, too, so I know how you feel. Well, just hang around here; I'm new but everyone has been so nice, even when I made some goofy mistakes! No one will laugh at you and will respect the posts you want to share.

I don't like getting left out either so don't feel like you are alone. I am very sensitive as well and if I do something that I make a mistake on by accident, I do not like being laughed or I will feel so Embarrassed.

It is not fun to be laughed at a lot, It is mean of that person to do this and then get mad at you for saying something. I would get my own tea and other things, and not depend on this person to much. It is said ignoring what this person is doing might stop this person, but really I don't know if it would. If this person is your sister or older brother time away from them will help.

Yes, i know what you mean.While they think laughing at a person is not good,they are under the false notion that they have a right to talk and act as they please because they are your parents.I am a mother of three sons and a grand parent to two grandsons.Two of my sons were very sensitive from childhood.So I have been careful to take into their feelings.If they do not want anything they will always tell me.I hope there is a little more communication between you and your parents.

It can really hurt when people treat you like that but try not to let it get to you too much. Your only realistic line of defense is to keep a score in your head to see how often it happens in a week - perhaps put that many coins in a tin and after a while they will be the cause of you having a nice little pile. Ignoring them is the only way because you won't change who they are you can only change how you react. ((hugs))
