I get so sad when my friends call me names like “nerd” or “freak.” I try not to let them see it bothers me, but inside it still hurts. Why do people call people names, anyway?

Dear Words Hurt
If these people are your friends, you have to let them know how you feel about them calling you names. Simply tell them to stop and if they do not, find some new friends. It’s so uncool to call people names, belittle them or make fun of people. Strangely enough, if people stopped making fun of people for one minute, they would realize the names they are calling someone else is how they feel about themselves inside. If they realized this, there would be a lot less name calling going on.
