The comments ruined her life
In some of the Danish magazines the readers are able to share their stories and experiences. Some time ago I read a story about a woman who avoided other people for 13 years. Her mother was ill and the woman took care of her for many years. They had enough money and the woman didn't really have to work. When she was in her 30's she decided to find a job anyway mostly because she wanted meet other people. At Christmas time the company where she worked arranged a party. In the past she never participated in parties and at first she enjoyed the new experience. At one point she discovered that two of her co-workers were talking about her.They called her a fat old maid and they said that she was boring. They also said other bad things about her.
The woman was extremely hurt and she quit her job because she didn't want to meet the people who said all those bad things about her. She started taking care of her mother again and for 13 years she stayed at home. She didn't talk to friends and she didn't go on dates. She was very lonely and very unhappy. She called her story "The comments that ruined my life". I can't forget her story. It is really sad that those comments ruined so much for her. Most people would get hurt in that situation, but she didn't just get hurt, she actually stayed away from other people for 13 years.
