I've had, like many others, dealt with people taking advantage of me than turn around and accuse me of being a monster. you can't really do anything about those heartless assholes....except try not to run into another one of their kind...
and, you gotta learn to stand up for yourself at some point in your life, else this hell will never end.
people took advantage of my kindness, too...like one time, i gave a preppy girl a compliment, only to hear her and her posse laughing at me as i walked away. i used to leave school every day in tears, because of how people take advantage of me...
Honestly, you have EVERY RIGHT to express how your feeling Bullying hurts-HARD- trust me when I say I know You should ALWAYS stand up for yourself, especially when its not your fault, even if you think you'll just get in trouble for it anyway. You shouldn't change who you are just because life comes along to kick you to the dirt. But at the same time you have to be brave and strong
I've had stuff like that happen to me before. It sucks when people think they walk all over you. When something like this happens to me, i try to tell myself: "This only lasts a moment, the next one will be better. I AM STRONG!" It helps more when you talk to friends. Its nice to vent. You helped me alot when I had troubles. Thank you.
Whenever I get bumped or shoved in the hallway at school, even if I don't know the person -or if I DO know them and severely dislike them- I always sarcastically say "Gee, thanks for almost making me drop my books". Then the have a look that says "WTF?" and walk off. I often try to draw for other people, and if I ever end up finishing my drawing for them, they'll go "Thanks a bunch! I love it!" or something. I'll see it in the trash at the end of the class period I gave it to them.
Because its happened to us more than onceXD. We've either met a person or people who knew we were gulliable at some point in our lives and took it to their advantages. I had former friends who knew I was.
This used to happen to me a lot, especially in middle school. One girl in particular that I remember starting hanging out with me, because she didn't have any friends (found out later that this was because she was an asshole) and she knew I'd be friends with literally any one who wanted to be my friend.
The second she got new friends, she stopped speaking to me, and even starting calling me names. She used me because no one would hang out with her, and then ignored me completely.
There were also boys who would copy answers off me and beg to be my partner on a school project, only to leave me with all the work, because they knew I was too shy to tell the teacher.
After a while, I just went through a phase where I stopped being nice to every one. I wasn't a total bitch, but I'd never do anything particularly kind either.
Now, I think I've found a good balance. I'm friendly, and I make a point to do plenty acts of random kindness, but I've gotten better at figuring out when people are just using me, and when it comes to that, they lose my kindness.
TL;DR- Middle school was a black hole filled with horrible, horrible people. I am still kind, but I'm no longer a pushover.
Yeah, I'm in middle school now, it's just a never ending ball of stress. I was in a huge state of blind depression when I made this stamp it seems a bit silly to me now but I guess when your young your emotions are a bit out of control I couldn't help it :/
And I know exactly how you feel with everything, my family just informed me that when I was little some parents actually ASKED them if I could be their daughter's friend JUST because I was smart. And this was a girl who had bullied me everyday :/ I knew something was up when she started being nice to me. And my parents had TOLD them no
How people can be like this confuses me greatly, I'm glad to know you have found a balance though, I can only wish I will find mine one day.
...i hide it...not always the best idea...it sucks to be a socially awkward homeschooled like me when you have to go out and interact with the world...all i want to do now is just lock myself into our house...sometimes i think all i need is there...i know how you feel cause i've been picked on all my life to, even by my family...well not my parents but growing up with 3 siblings ain't easy for the pacifist (aka me)
This is very true and shameful as well. (In my life) It seems like all the nice and "rejects" are the ones that get hurt more. And the ones that are all showy and are sorta know-it-alls get all the attention. To me, this is how I think the world advertises as well; and it's a really sad thing. There's a song that I like, and listen to a lot called 'Miss Invisible ', and it really describes how this situation is handled. The artist is named Marie Digby. Here's a link to the song. [link]

Ugh, I hate it when that happens. One guy once took advantage of my kindess for 3 fucking years and has asked for my forgiveness after everytime he backstabs me. And people wonder why I'm the way I am now. Especially the ones that take advantage of me.
