Anyways. I've made ANOTHER change to my blog. Well, not so much a "change" but rather an "addition". Now at the bottom of my blog I have a quote of the week featured. I love different quotes so this should be exciting, at least for me anyways.
So this weeks quote is:
Let's elaborate! I have been in many situations where I have wanted to add my opinion to a conversation but felt like I was bullied into silence. Like "Oh, you're just a 21 year old who knows nothing about life". Well, maybe my opinion would have meant something to someone else in the group of conversation. So goal is to not be bullied into silence. Speak my mind. Add my opinions and stand up for what I believe in. :]
I have also been in many of situations where I was made out to be the victim, or I felt like the victim. Just this week another co-worker decided to tell my sister that I was talking "shit" about her (my sister) as well as my nephew. REALLY!? Um, no. In that situation I was the victim to her lies. Another instance: In high school the "popular" girls at the new school that I had just started attending decided it would be a fabulous idea to spread a rumor that I was a lesbian.[psh news to me! last time I checked I had a boyfriend at the time!] The outcome was either eating my lunch in a bathroom stall or getting croutons and bacon bits thrown at me by Mr. Baseball boys. One imparticularly, Andrew. I can't stand him even to this day. [afterall, who doesn't LOVE walking down the hallway with people yelling "DIKE!" behind you?!] Unfortunately, still to this day none of the girls have apologized. I have forgave them either way. Yet still I fell victim to the rumor. I wish I would have stood up for myself. On any other occasion I would have, yet I had just moved to a new town, a new school, and I didn't know anyone. I guess that called for an easy target for rumors and bullies. So don't fall victim. Stand up for yourself. Don't let people run over you, and for heaven's sake go eat your lunch in the cafeteria and show those bitches they don't mean shit to you! if only I knew this back then
Last but not least, the definition of my life. All day long people can try to define me but truly in the end not everyone knows the extent of layers to my being. I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a best friend. I am beautiful, crafty, religious, smart, ditzy, clumsy, creative, wierd, loud, shy, fun, exciting, and loving. I love to paint, knit, draw, color, and play with play dough. I enjoy reading, coffee dates, late nights, early breakfasts, doing laundry, playing with makeup, getting dressed up, watch movies that make me ball my eyes out, watching the stars, cuddling, drinking wine before bed, and taking naps. I have an obsession with shopping even if it's just for a tooth brush. I absolutely hate when my feet get wet unless I'm taking a shower or swimming. I've always been self conscious about my weight and I use to have an eating disorder and an obsession with working out. Then I realized no one is perfect and now I'm a cute chubby kid and proud of the skin that I'm in. I'm a 100% girly girl but I love getting dirty too (because real divas know how to get down!) I bite my finger nails and if I have a booger I'll pick it. The list could go on and on.
What are a few ways you can define yourself? Have you ever been made felt like the victim? Have you ever been bullied in to silence?
