how do you put up with people who are constantly putting you down? i mean, we all know those kinds of people and sometimes even wonder why i'm even friend with those kinds of people.

Be the same towards them... I guess it's the only time fire should fight fire.
Don't get the wrong idea; it's only worked for me--no idea if it'll work that way for you.

Just be straight with people. If something they do bothers you, ask them to stop.

For the people who constantly put me down, they are buzzed out of my life.

Criticism is good to take, and it is valuable many a time. But when it is only negativity and nothing positive when you know you deserve better, those people bringing you down are the ones that need to be kicked out.

If they are making you feel that bad, and not just joking around with you like some friends do, why do you even consider them friends at all? If they're just trying to joke around with you let them know you're not appreciating it. If they really are trying to put you down then the hell with 'em.

Why would you be friends with people who only put you down? That sounds like a rather masochistic concept if you ask me. If you don't know why you're friends with someone then that's usually your cue to tell them you don't want to be friends anymore. You don't 'put up' with them, you 'leave' them.

It's pretty basic common sense. If you don't know why you are friends with someone or If they are a negative aspect in your life more than positive then get rid of them. If you can't manage to do it or don't want to then you pretty much deserve what you get.

I can read minds
I hit were it hurts the most and don't need to do it that many times, I will hurt your feelings in the worst way possible without being obvious about it. I'm like Mohammed Ali lol.

'There's not a man alive who can whup me. I'm too fast. I'm too smart. I'm too pretty. I should be a postage stamp. That's the only way I'll ever get licked.'

You're welcome.

Tell them that it bothers you and ask them to stop. If they don't stop, just don't talk to them.

I used to have friends like this, way back when, but I was too wimpy to stand up for myself and too clingy to leave. Don't be like me. It sucks.

You do not want to please those type of people trust me because I am a people pleaser. Find a way to stand up to them and you will feel much better about yourself.

Your people pleasing ways is a great asset to have, maybe someone will self-reflect and bring themselves down with their fail. You can also direct conversation in such a way that most people can't.

people are only downers when they have no self confidence, so they try to put other down to make themselves feel better about their horrible life. When you meet a "downer" if you shine with self confidence you will surely be the first on their attack list. Just let their comments slide right off your back knowing what a sad, sorry little person they are, and that they have to resort to elementry school tactics to feel good about themselves... Just remember if they're giving you shit, tell yourself this "This guy must be jealous of me cause I'm a CHAMPION"
