Hey guys, so this week I think I’m just going to be discussing something a bit different to what I normally talk about and I know recently I have been saying that a lot and it probably doesn’t seem that different, but oh well… It just seems different, you know?
I feel that this is something that many people experience but don’t really talk about because they are either too worried to talk about it or they dont want anyone to know what their thinking. Does that make sense? Probably not, but lets continue!
So recently, I have noticed quite a lot. I’ll be sitting down and someone will say something to the group I’m sitting with. It’ll be aimed at one person, it probably seems funny to them, but then I notice that what they’ve said actually isn’t that nice. I don’t know if they realise or not, but it has hurt or annoyed that person. I can just tell by their facial expression. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. Most of the time everyone in that group will laugh and that’ll be the end of it, but then the person that it was aimed at looks at me and I just know.
“It’s just banter.” That stupid excuse that I hate, I’m not talking about bullying here. I’m talking about people not thinking before their speaking.
Although I suppose it does apply with bullying.
It happens to me quite a lot, someone will make a joke about me expecting me to laugh as well, sometimes I do but then sometimes someone will take it too far. It has happened quite a lot over the past few weeks and as much as I don’t mind, a few of the things been said have been hurtful.
Some things that people say can be really hurtful and sometimes they may not mean what they say in that kind of context, but sometimes they might.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, just be careful with what you say. If you wouldn’t want it said back to you then don’t say it to someone else. It’s just common sense really. I just don’t understand why people can’t be nice to each other…
When I read this quote this week, “Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.” I knew that I was going to use it for this weeks blog. I’m not quite sure who said it but it is genius.
It made me think about a lot. It’s kind of funny. Ironic really. A bit hypocritical. Someone can say something horrible to someone else but then often doesn’t like it if someone else says something cruel to them. They don’t like it themselves, so why do it to others?
I know quite a few that have been bullies and didn’t like it when someone was horrible back. It just makes no sense to me. They still carried on being cruel to others after too. It just doesn’t make much sense to me, why do something to others if you don’t like it done to yourself?
I don’t know… I think I’m just gonna leave it at that… That made sense, right? It did in my head anyway.
Okay… So that’s it from me this week, kind of a short post. There will be another one next Thursday! Thank you for all the support from last weeks post and thank you to those that came up to me and told me they like reading my blog. It honestly does mean ever so much to me! Thank you so much! Keep smiling, stay strong and don’t settle for anything less than you deserve! Much love – Alison xx
