It feels good to be self insulted.

How to say it grammatically correct. I know I am wrong please make me correct.

  • It is very difficult to tell you how to say something correctly if you don't tell us what it is you want to say. What is the meaning of what you're trying to say? – stangdon Dec 22 '17 at 15:34

It's not clear to me what exactly you want to say with self-insulted. Why would anyone want to insult themselves or be humiliated in front of others? That's a form of masochism. Maybe, you're thinking of something like self-criticism or self-deprecation which are generally considered good qualities to have. And those are probably the expressions you're looking for.


Self-criticism is a good quality to have because it helps you see yourself from a more critical position.

It's always good to be a little bit self-deprecating in whatever you do.

  • No actually I wanted to say that in a fun way that. I always take approval from my friend before uploading my photos on social media cause sometimes it feels good to get self insulted. – fusion Dec 22 '17 at 17:06
  • Actually my English is not as good as you people, so I couldn't explain I just want to say that "it feels good to be humiliated by yourself" is that what I am trying to say. – fusion Dec 22 '17 at 17:17
  • Well, then just say exactly that: I really like it when people humiliate me. or I enjoy being humiliated. – Michael Rybkin Dec 22 '17 at 17:23
  • It perhaps means when people does, but I wanted to translate like "I like to be get self humiliated or something" a kind of by my choice it's happening – fusion Dec 22 '17 at 17:26
  • I like being pushed around -- will that work for you? – Michael Rybkin Dec 22 '17 at 17:35

"Self-insulted" implies you are insulting yourself. If that's the case then Cookie Monster's answer of "self-deprecation", etc. would apply.

Otherwise, if you're just talking about someone else insulting you publicly, then that's pretty much what you would (sarcastically) say:

It's always fun to be abused by my friends.

Could you please slap me around some more? I really enjoy it!

Or you can focus on the expected result of the insults:

I always appreciate being humiliated in front of an audience

Certain well-known political figures or celebrities will sometimes be given a roast, which is a banquet at which the honoree is subjected to good-natured ridicule by other celebrities, often famous comedians. For example, excerpts from the 2009 Roast of President Obama.

In this context, it may be OK to say you're being "roasted" by your friends, but I don't know if they'd understand.

  • What if I say, it feels good to being humiliated by yourself. – fusion Dec 22 '17 at 17:28
  • @fusion then self-deprecation, self-denigration, self-abuse, self-humiliation, etc. as in the previous answer. – Andrew Dec 22 '17 at 18:39
