Feeling Guilty?

Wow, it is after midnight and I’ve pretty much done nothing so far today except let people get me down. Why do people who feel guilty about their own actions have to always add insult to injury? This is not a rhetorical question. I don’t get it. I feel like maybe I should be more hostile when people do things to take advantage of me because, whenever I try to just let a slight slide, the guilty parties always have to be rude in addition to damaging. It is like they are sitting there waiting to be punished for their misdeeds, and they can’t stand the suspense of waiting, so they have to push harder to provoke retaliation.
