The slightest, most innocent comment from someone may strike you as intentionally rude. You may even speak negatively about yourself, or others, to the point it borders on verbal abuse.

In most cases, incorporating positive changes into your lifestyle can help immensely, including eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
