Incorrect. Being a "good friend" to someone is to encourage them in a personal way. For example: "Congrats on your promotion at work" or "Happy Birthday!" or "You look so good since the weight loss." It's personal; the person sending the message knows something about the person they're speaking to, and they say something that is tailored to the person they're sending the message to. A generic "You are all beautiful!" is not encouraging, because it's a generic message that says that she doesn't care enough about her friends to actually communicate with them on an individual level. It's lazy. Instead of communicating encouragement or affection, it communicates: "I do not think you're worth any of my real time." So yeah, OP deserved it. And hopefully she learned a valuable lesson.

Well, people throw them around trying to sound understanding and compassionate, but their actions are in stark contrast to the person they apparently wish to be. That, to me, is what makes all these "inspirational" quotes so annoying.

Yup. Some people do throw them around like water. And then you get that one person, who is being genuine, and really means it. That is what makes these "inspirational quotes", once in a while, special. :D

I think the only way I can really see them as special is if they're truly sincere, which to me does not mean copying and pasting from some website. To me, it means originating from the person sending/saying/posting them, from personal experience and thought. But I don't know, maybe it's just me. Everybody else seems to love plagiarized inspirational quotes.

And I am not arguing with you in the least! I quite agree on some levels. But some people do not always understand why these messages are not appreciated. Some people, are just trying to make a friend smile... : D

The most annoying over-used quote that gets plagarised these days is "I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best". Everything with tits and the ability to talk seems to think they're Marilyn Monroe, and most of them must be oblivious to the fact as they say this as though it's their own thought expecting nobody to call them on it. Off topic slightly, but it just reminded me of this.
