People Break Down The Most F**ked Up Thing Someone's Ever Said To Them

The most surefire way of hurting someone is not by physically attacking them but rather by using words.

Indeed, saying something to someone you know will deliberately hurt them will leave a far more lasting impact than any scar or wound.

Petty name-calling or completely false accusations are fairly easily brushed off.

Then there are the things people say to others which can simply never be forgotten, and no amount of forgiveness will ever make them forget.

Words that are so harmful, or information so traumatizing, that the only way to describe it is "f*cked up".

Redditor TPhantom45 was curious to hear the most utterly "f*cked up" things people were told by friends and family, leading them to ask:
"What was the most f*cked up thing someone said to you?"

Love Is Stronger Than Blood

"I've shared this one before."

"I was adopted when I was three."

"My mother has always been very supportive and a wonderful person, but my dad had a drinking problem and overall was a bit of a sh*tty person."

"When my mom got pregnant, I was 7, and I remember my dad telling me he was so excited to 'finally have his own and first son'."

"There was always favoritism, and in the current day, he and I don't even talk."

"I love my brother to death and hold no ill will, but our father should have been better."- CT3993

Someone Will Always Remember

"My mom told me that she wishes I was never born."

"I wasn't planned but they always told me I was a 'surprise'."

"One day when my mom drank a little more than usual, I told her I love her and she looked me in the eye and said 'I don't love you, f*ck I wish you were never born'."

"I haven't stopped thinking about that, it was just us two in the room when it happened and she doesn't remember it."

"It scared me and I don't think I will forget it."- Commercial_Sea_8817

People Grieve In Their Own Time

"My husband died suddenly when I was 35."

"There's a picture of me at the visitation standing in front of his urn with my brother's arm around my shoulders while I cried."

"My friend said 'I love that picture of your brother supporting you'."

"I said 'Yeah'."

"That's when he told me to suck it up and stop crying."- DevonHexe

All Children Want Is Their Parent's Support

"'I don't love you, or care about you. I only love your sister'."

"Honorable mentions: "

"'I hope you never make it into college'."

"'I hope you have to work a grueling schedule for the rest of your life'."

"Thanks dad."- lcssa

Apparently, So Could Her Husband...

"I had a very complicated pregnancy."

"I found out at 4 months (crazy, I know)."

"I was extremely high risk, and my FIL was asking my husband what he'd do if it he had to choose me or the baby."

"Before hubby could answer, my MIL pipes up with 'Well, if it's her or the baby save the baby you can find a better mother'."


"Husband lost it."- NickiP5150

Never Pick Yourself Up By Taking Others Down

"To me and my wife."

"We went over for Christmas 10 years ago, my dad was so drunk that they couldn’t stand up."

"He asked if he could hold our six month old child to which we said no."

"My mom who was not as drunk walked over about two minutes later and asked to hold the baby."

"We said okay to that and she immediately turned around and handed our baby to my overly drunk dad."

"A week later we get together with just us and them and tell them if they drink like that around our kids again, we won’t be coming to family events."

"My mom looked straight at my wife and said 'all the problems in this family are because of you'.”

"My wife being taken by surprise by that stuttered her next words and before she could get it out, my mom did that 'to-to-today' mock."

"Needless to say we got up and walked out of their house."- Myworkaccountbrah

So Good To Know They Had Their Support

"I was basically bedridden after an accident left me in constant, debilitating pain."

"My ex screamed in my face to 'just die already'."

"But apparently I'm remembering it wrong and it wasn't that big of a deal."- moxley-me

No Need To Hold Her Feelings Back

"My mom married my stepdad when I was four and we moved out to my step-grandmother's ranch to work it."

"When I was seven, I was told to help my nine year old cousin learn about what to do."

"He whined and b*tched about everything he has to do the entire time."

"I told my stepdad's mother about him 'not being too excited' about it."

"Well, he's the oldest, so this ranch will be his someday," She'd said.

"I'm seven. I don't know how sh*t works, so I ask, 'So I'll be working for Brad here someday?'"

"'No. You're going to be a priest. There's no other use for bastard children,' Was her answer."- wjescott

Children Can Be Cruelest Of All

"In middle school, I was told by a girl named Aubrey that I was a 2/10 and she audibly gagged at me."

"Well guess who’s a 2/10 now, 15 years later?"

"Still me, but f*ck you Aubrey."- itsTonic_

Not Everyone is Meant To Be A Parent

"'My life would have been so much better if you had just died too'."

"My twin died at birth."

"It may be true, but no kid needs to hear that."- bonjelascott

"My dad's speech at my mom's funeral:"

” <mom> and <son> had a close relationship, I’d have preferred to have a daughter'.“

"Not sure how that's relevant for the occasion but ok."

"Either that or the: 'Your mom wanted you, not me'.“

"Many years before that."- Remk0h

Placing Blame Will Never Change Anything

‘"It’s your fault your dad died’ - my mother."

"He had a heart attack on my 14th birthday, I was at school when he had the first one, asleep at night when he had the second that killed him."

"I didn’t get to see him as he told me over the phone to enjoy my birthday."

"That was our last contact."

"I cancelled my plans anyway and stayed at home waiting for my mom and sister to come back from the hospital."

"I still carry that guilt."

"Later, my ex’s mom. ‘It’s no wonder he died having to deal with you as a daughter’ sigh."- FrozenBluebell

Some Things Are Out Of Everyone's Control

"'It shouldn't have been your dad'."

"'It should've been you'."

"'It should've been you'."

"Said repeatedly by my mother, both drunk and sober, after my father's death."

"I think I looked too much like him for her."- berripluscream

Just Plain Cruel

"My ex-husband while we were still married:"

"'I don't find you sexually attractive anymore'."

"I was eight months pregnant with our second child."

"We were in the middle of making love."

'My ex-husband again: Fast forward a year."

"I am still nursing my baby girl when he tells me,

"'Lose weight or I want a divorce'."

"I am 5'5" and weighed 135 lbs when he said that to me, which is exactly ten pounds more than I weighed on our wedding day."- mom_with_an_attitude

They say actions speak louder than words.

But some words leave a much more lasting scar.

We all have our different breaking points when it comes to tolerating certain behaviors.

When pushed too far, people can act impulsively and wind up causing irreparable damage and also ruining various relationships.

Some people may find it difficult to do, but turning their back on the situation is key, but if their backs are up against the wall, they may find that counting to ten may bring momentary peace.

Curious to hear about strangers online suppress their rage, Redditor Grouchy-Trip9582 asked:

When we look back on our childhood, we all reflect on things we regret doing.

From stealing money from our parents' wallets to buy candy or cheating on a test, to sneaking into an R-rated movie against our parent's advice, or being caught coming home past our curfew with our first crush.

While these things naturally got us in trouble, we often look back on these things with laughter and amusement, as they seem to be things all children are guilty of at one point or another.

Of course, some of us also may have done things that we can't simply brush off as "kids being kids."

Things we did that couldn't be fixed by an apology or a punishment, and which still cause us to lie awake in bed at night to this very day.
