Does anyone else have someone that makes you feel like crap out of the blue for no reason? Well for me I deal with this stuff a lot with one of my sisters who for some reason has decided to make me feel like shit all the time. Here’s an example of what I mean:
Me: *walking through the grocery store* Hey you know what’s really good with yogurt? Mixing in some granola and fruit!
Sister: WOW MARIAH THAT IS SO COOL AND ORIGINAL NO ONE HAS EVER THOUGHT OF THAT BEFORE. YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL OKAY. HHAHAHA
Me: *puts down granola and walks away*
Sister: OH WOW NOW YOU’RE GONNA BE ALL SENSITIVE AND MAD OKAYYYYY.
Like I just feel like there’s really no reason to say something like that…I don’t do anything like that to her and yet for some reason she enjoys putting me down all the time..It just starts to hurt after a while. Especially from someone I love..And the funny thing is she gets mad when I don’t open up to her about things I like and what not, but when I do she puts me down, so it just makes me want to close up.. An example of what I mean:
*watching the blue lagoon with my sister*
Me: I really love Brooke Shields, she’s always been a celebrity I admire..
Me: Oh just because..I don’t know..I can’t really explain it…
Sister: Oh my gosh..really…just tell me…
Me: Well I dunno, I just thought she was really cool because she’s an actress/model who has really thick eyebrows and, for me having thick eyebrows always made me insecure about myself, but when I see someone like her it makes me feel a little better..
Sister: OMG MARIAH LOTS OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE HAVE THICK EYEBROWS, YOUR NOT SPECIAL OKAY SO STOP.
…I really don’t know why I’m writing this but I guess it helps me. But if anyone else deals with this kind of stuff, just know that you ain’t the only one..
Just your daily reminders:
- Racists are a problem
- White people are not
- Homophobes are a problem
- Straight people are not
- Transphobes are a problem
- Cis people are not
- Sexists are a problem
- Men are not
And most importantly,
- Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole
This is something a lot of people on tumblr can’t seem to wrap their head around.
