Asteism

I wish I had it in me to be able to politely insult people.

A little asteism never hurt anyone.


I usually either hold it in or let go in a not very polite way.

I just have to use sarcasm. Sometimes it works. I have a fear of hurting people so often the nasty comment is under my breath.

Never heard the term asteism before either. I don't know, I guess if someone needs to be called out they should know they're being called out. ;)

Oh no, I'm sorry that someone (or more than one person) has made you feel like they're worthy of being insulted. I hope everything is okay, dear Lorena (I'm always here if you need anyone to talk to about something).

*PS* I completely adore those animal rings!

Your ring is so cute as always with your rings. You're totally pulling off the head to toe monochrome print. And I am the same way with insults: either bold and in your face or none at all.
