But the way I do it is I gather a lot of strength from the closer people I know. That way I won't be affected by people who try to hurt me. But if they are close to me (and try to hurt me), that would be one of the worst situations I can find myself in.
I'm pretty bad at dealing with "sniping" from people who don't really like me. Sure, I ignore it and act like everything is all right but sometimes it gets to me.
