This is probably gonna be a short post but lets get this down.
Have you ever heard a saying “The real bullies are your friends”. Okay, so let’s cut the chase. I first heard that during an assembly back in high school. At first I didn’t believe it because gotta admit it, most of the times I was in a good term with my friends. Obviously, I thought spending time with them were always good and fun and never a dull day with them.
But after high school, uni happens. I probably shouldn’t have signed up for this. But whatever, it is good to learn and educate yourself because in the end, it is you who are benefiting from it. Okay — back to my story. Once I started uni, I lived on my own with 5 different girls, and that’s when I realized of the saying ” The real bullies are your own friends”. Indeed. How can I not rant?
- Everytime I do something for the first time, say for example like emceeing for a theater event, instead of supports that I want to receive, I was being put down, laughed at, and criticized as if it was some kind of a joke. Yes, big deal. Not. Funny. I am already tired enough dealing with these criticism like it is nothing. It is my first time being an MC officially, I am already worried sick thinking what if I mess it up, what if I trip on the stage, etc. while you– who are supposed to be a ‘friend’ assumed that I will be the worst MC. I will make the whole situation cringe worthy. I will end up not say anything and let the other MC do the talking. Questioning me of how I ended up being the MC. The worst part? Instead of going to cheer and genuinely support me, you have decided to ‘BOO’ me. Thanks.
- Studies. Okay for pete’s sake! We are taking different courses. Who are you to judge if whatever I am learning is hard or not. Who are you to make fun of me learning something that you have already learned? Okay well good for you for learning something that I haven’t learned yet. I am getting there. We all struggled in the first place trying to understand the concept. Instead of teaching me, you bragged. Instead of teaching me, you constantly saying that whatever I study is easy. What’s the purpose of all that? To make me feel stupid about myself when I am actually struggling to understand? I just don’t get it. First, good on you that you have learned in way ahead before I did. Good on me that I don’t have a lot of assessment. But please be aware that every assessment I do, the weighing percentage is very high.
But let’s be honest. Why do people act like this? Why do ‘friends’ act the way they do? Are you so insecure about yourself that you have to put a friend down in order to make yourself feel better? If that’s merely the reason why, you are so pathetic. Please don’t live like a loser. If you have nothing nice to say, just keep your mouth shut. Just because I didn’t say anything that doesn’t mean I am not hurt by your words. If probably next time I stop talking to you, don’t question why. I am just cutting off the people that are giving me negativity in life.
