How I look at people projecting negativity, is because they're not happy within themselves.
When people are going out of their way to humiliate you or put you down - not being constructive or helpful - is because they're looking to fill a void.
That can be to either make themselves feel better by putting you down so they feel superior, or to simply feel satisfaction by attempting to hurt you.
At the end of the day, I wouldn't say ignore it but understand where it is coming from. Understand that it is coming from a place of lack and insecurity, and know that it shouldn't make you feel any less or low about yourself; as they're attempting to bring you down to how they're really
At the end of the day we are all human beings, and this will happen in any public community; with a smaller population it will definitely become more common.
Personally, if you are feeling that there is a lack of 'community' in Halo 5, look at what you can do to change it positively. Obviously not saying that you have to do this, but sending out a 'GG' or a 'Good game well played :)' to your fellow or opposing team can go a long way; it can make someone feel better than they were originally :)
I'm really passionate about community, self development and mental health, hence why I've gone very in depth with this post; don't mind me haha
Thank you for bringing this to light iGETTER
, I hope this brought you or anyone reading this some insight and clarity.
Much love my Halo homies <3
