I recently went to Atlantic City for a girls weekend to kick it, be us, goof around, and enjoy each other, and all those things we did but I have to tell you, if you ever think you’re to old to be bullied think again.
Minding my own business, chatting it up with friends in the line to one of the clubs, a group of people walked by me, stared me down head to toe and snarked saying “Where do you think you’re goin’ the PROM?!”. I didn’t make anything of it, thinking that a childish remark like that would only come from a person who doesn’t like themselves, has low self confidence, and feels they have to put others down to feel good about themselves, so I ignored it. Shrugged my shoulders, and let it fly off. That was until someone else in that group decided to throw a huge stuffed animal banana, yes a banana (true story) at my back to try and embarrass me in a line of about fifty people.
Let me make myself clear to all the people who read my blog. No matter what age, color, sex, or situation you’re in, there will always be one dumb banana trying to spoil the whole bunch. So please like yourself no matter what. People who put you down for being you, people who bully you, do that because they don’t like themselves. And you know what, that’s ok. You’re stronger than you think. Think of how bad their situation must be and compare. Someone always has it worse than you. Usually, people that bully, bully as a tactic to cover up something they don’t like about themselves.
Now, could I be blowing this whole bullying banana bunch out of proportion, maybe, but you know what… People need to remember that no matter how old you are, there will always be someone trying to take you down when you feel great about yourself, and there is NOTHING WRONG WITH LIKING YOURSELF. And if you don’t like yourself it will show. So accept yourself for who you are, who others are, where you come from, and what you have. You’re situation could always be worse, think about it… You could be the one throwing stuffed animals at people for attention. I think I’d rather be promoting positive messages for attention then throwing fruit. Jokes on you.
Gal Pals, you’re stronger, prettier, smarter, and more *Polished than you think, know it! Own it, and never let anyone spoil the good in you.
