It literally does not matter who you are in life. Whether you are a homeless person suffering or a billionaire living high and mighty, you CAN NOT escape shit talkers, bullying and ridicule. Don’t think you can because I’m telling you now, it’s not possible.
The way you deal with it though is what makes you better!
I have been called names, been laughed at and had people talk shit behind my back. It’s not that some of it never hurt I think it more just pissed me off and by high school I just didn’t give a fuck!
You have these “groups” in high school, it’s goes from ‘shit kickers’ to the ‘popular kids’ right, the funny thing though, both, all and in between have people talking shit about them. It’s ridiculous how strong people feel when they talk absolute shit about others though.
By high school and with some wise words from my mum it became apparent that no matter who you are people are always going to assume they are better than you.
That’s when I stopped caring.
Even at my age now people still try to bring you down. I just laugh, I laugh because I know they’re shit talkers, I laugh because it’s ridiculous and I laugh because what makes me a better person is not stooping to their level.
Sometimes I still feel like punching people in the head but I don’t do it lol that’s strength.
I guess the thing to remember is, people will always talk smack it’s how you deal with it that matters.
Then on the other hand you have compliments. I mean what’s your reaction to a compliment, probably ‘thanks’ right? Nar not me, I’m an incredibly awkward compliment receiver.
I don’t know why, it’s not like I’ve never received compliments before I just have this diversion response.
With the help of a friend who has told me “just take my damn compliment would ya” I’m slowly trying to change that hahaha.
My awkward responses range from: “Nar you are”, “ehh sometimes”, “I try” and “I agree” lol
I don’t know what it is but I just can’t seem to say, “thanks, I appreciate it”.
I’m awkwardly amazing, it’s great hahaha.
We should be embracing these compliments though, they let us know that we are doing ok, we aren’t as shit house as we think we are and people do care.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, embrace the good and the bad. The bad makes you a better person for being able to ignore it and the good makes you a better person by being able to accept that you are liked/loved in this world we tend to view as dark sometimes.
My message to you today;
You are amazing and you are enough for the people around you ❤️
