We often regret the things we say without thinking when we’re hurt or angry. And when our words are posted online, they can’t be taken back. Perhaps you’ll have a chance to apologize if you see this girl in person. You might even consider mailing her a letter explaining how sorry you feel.
Try to learn from this experience. A good rule of thumb is to never comment online when you feel upset—and never write anything you wouldn’t feel comfortable saying face-to-face.
It might help to talk to your parents about this, too. They may have more suggestions.
