Today, my sister was upset because she felt like no one liked her. Without thinking, I replied, "It's okay. If I acted like you, people would probably hate me, too." This sounded sympathetic in my head. FML

Op probably did think about what she was going to say, but social situations like this can make a person fumble on their words and mean something completely different.

#1, I think the reason you're getting thumbed down is because of the "sweetie." It seems condescending. I know it drives me crazy when girls my age call me "hon" before trying to correct me.

My friend was once complaining that her bestie's brother doesn't like her, and in an effort to console her the bestie said: "Oh, you're upset that he doesn't like you? But lots of people don't like you!" She thought shecwas making it less personal :D

#6 Damn, I accidentally thumbed you down. Sorry!

OP, while that wasn't clever of your part (you tried, though, and it's the thought that counts...?), it'll hopefully make her try to change herself for the better.

I did that once.
My mother walked into the room i was in.
And my dogs started flipping out and barking at her.
So i said "they probably don't recognize you because you look so pretty"
It sounded like a compliment in my head
