I am on a Discord server, which promotes a positive environment.
I was chatting with someone and made a joke.
Someone else had just posted a pic of themselves, and they were pinged by someone else to the same chat about something.
They thought my joke was about them, and they asked if it was a compliment or insult.
I didn’t know they posted a pic and just assumed they were in on the joke, so I explained the joke would be an insult.
They ended up getting depressed and leaving the server.
I wasn’t even talking about them, and I didn’t even find out until later. I know I shouldn’t feel this guilty about it, it’s not even really my fault. I did nothing wrong, it was just a mixup, but I still feel awful about it. I do hope they get better soon.
