I wrote a post, but took it down because I didn’t feel like it would go over well with some people especially since I’m a little spacey and accidentally made things sound offensive. I’m having a writer’s block, but I’ll be sure to get over it soon and write about something else.
… Is one of the most serious things that happens daily and all around you. There are a variety of different ways to bully someone. Even ignoring someone when they try speaking to you is bullying.
I have been a victim of hardcore bullying from a ridiculous amount of people. I have been bullied by people who used to be my friends, but decided not to be when they heard something bad about me and didn’t even ask me if it was true. They bullied me by ignoring me, and being rude to me when I attempted to talk to them. Outright rude, actually.
I was also bullied by a friend of a friend of mine who pretended I didn’t exist when I tried speaking to them. It was like I was worthless and not worth their time to even acknowledge.
Another instance that happened was rumors of me that were started by someone who liked a friend of mine that was just my friend when they thought differently. I was told by different people that this person was calling me an attention whore, a bitch, and actually stated I didn’t want want them to date my friend because I wanted my friend for myself. What?
This person was genuinely just a good friend. Always there for me when I needed them, and we just had fun together. I have no idea why I deserved this, but it happened.
I am also that girl who sits in the back corner of classes and actually goes to school to learn, but can’t because of petty girls who like to sit there and literally make asses of themselves.
Every time I would speak in a class people would look at me like I was an alien, or just plain stupid. All I would do is ask a question, or comment on something the teacher would say.
Something else that happened was the teacher moved around our seats and I ended up sitting behind one of these girls, and she flipped shit about it. Sorry I exist and don’t want to put up with your bullshit.
That was sarcasm, by the way.
There are even more cases, but what’s important is putting a stop to it. If someone is bullying you in any way, and you feel like you can’t take it, tell someone. Tell a teacher, a friend, a parent, an administrator, or simply anyone you trust.
Remember, hurting yourself is NOT the way to go. Ever.
I understand some situations are controllable, like plenty of mine. But if these people threaten you in any way, tell someone immediately.
Don’t let it go too far either.
And if you are bullying someone for ANY reason. I suggest you stop, and hopefully reclaim some of that humanity you probably once had when you were once 5 years old.
No matter what you did, you don’t deserve to be bullied. Nobody does.
I recently participated in one of these for the hell of it, but something that really bothers me about these is that it is so obvious that most people lie because they don’t want to hurt other people’s feelings.
Don’t get me wrong, when it came to “What I dislike about you:” I definitely put something true, but not the whole truth.
Because, for one thing, I think it’s rude to randomly blurt out something like “You’re selfish!” or “You’re a bitch!” on a Facebook post. (These don’t actually relate to people I would’ve done this for.) Another thing is I don’t want to actually hurt anyone’s feelings either, and I would rather say something to someone’s face so it can be clear that I intended it to sound the way I want it to sound.
If I’m being honest with someone I care about, I would say it in a nicer way suggesting that it’s not something to be proud of and it actually hurts other people.
Some people I would actually tell them straight up and not care about hurting their feelings because in comparison to what they’ve done to me it’s minuscule.
In conclusion, I think the whole process is rather ridiculous if you’re just going to lie through your teeth anyway.
Music. Always music.
I have so many ideas, but just like Carrie I’m afraid to use them in fear they won’t be good enough. See the “Things I’ll Never Say Project” here: http://carriehopefletcher.com/submit
Anyway, if anyone actually cares I’ll take any suggestions and maybe even offer advice on this blog of mine.
Due to a recent Facebook status and how well received it was, I decided that I would start over on here and simply use it to convey my ideas about anything and everything.
I’m an extremely opinionated person. I know what I like, and what I don’t like. I know who I like, and who I don’t like. I know what qualities I find admirable, and what qualities I find shameful. So on and so forth. What an interesting use of words when you look at it.
Anyway, as you’ve already found out, I digress. Time to get back on topic, Scarlett. *sigh*
I feel like I have a lot to say, and that there’s no use in only telling the two people I actually like and enjoy talking to. So here I am, and I’m ready to go.
One last thing, I have no idea how often I’ll be on here. Probably a lot, I am a very responsive person.
