11 Things You'll Understand If You Act Sassy AF But You're Actually A Really Nice Person
New Now Next

If you are like me, you have an interesting personality. Basically, you love to be sassy and snarky, gossip, and act like a total bitch (not really), but deep down, you are actually a very genuinely nice person. The idea of actually hurting someone truly makes you feel bad, and you probably have never actually hurt someone’s feelings because your kindness always shines through, even if you do not want it to. Not sure exactly what I would call this type of personality, but if you identify with it, here are some feelings you can undoubtedly relate to.

1. You are honestly kind of offended when people say you are a nice person

Ugh, I go out and act like a bitch all the time just for people to think I’m nice? Great.

2. People think it’s cute when you act sassy

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F6360732789513834281969240067_don%2527t%2520mess%2520with%2520me.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=650&h=35b3c65dfa3a1fcbeb3111086043014d3313e535304dec283f65268c7439ba70&size=980x&c=2401047363 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F6360732789513834281969240067_don%252527t%252520mess%252520with%252520me.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D650%26h%3D35b3c65dfa3a1fcbeb3111086043014d3313e535304dec283f65268c7439ba70%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2401047363%22%7D" expand=1]

Because remember, everyone thinks you have no capability of being anything but sugary sweet so when something sassy comes out of your mouth, no one can take you seriously. Ugh, this is not supposed to be cute, this is serious business!

3. You always have people who annoy you but will not stop following you around

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F6360732798049247721575083365_plastics.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=239&h=0db1aee8e06fa7513ff8c04dfb4aa96fcd26af7b4a12d51394802f6324778cde&size=980x&c=2209502878 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F6360732798049247721575083365_plastics.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D239%26h%3D0db1aee8e06fa7513ff8c04dfb4aa96fcd26af7b4a12d51394802f6324778cde%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2209502878%22%7D" expand=1]

Who has not had this problem? There is that person who just annoys the sh*t out of you and you try as hard as you can (without being outwardly mean, of course) to let them know that you want absolutely nothing to do with them, yet they still are convinced you like them and will not leave you alone. Why does this person think I like them if I acted like such a b*tch to them? Oh right—I am incapable of actually coming across as mean. *facepalm*

4. You often have trouble deciding how you want to present yourself to people

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073280395984010-1628045902_hillary.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=362&h=27b2f159ca76e930fe480ecc1230215cbaf71347c0ae683803c08b96f1671462&size=980x&c=1155453780 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073280395984010-1628045902_hillary.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D362%26h%3D27b2f159ca76e930fe480ecc1230215cbaf71347c0ae683803c08b96f1671462%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1155453780%22%7D" expand=1]

Do I want to show them that I am actually really nice? Or should I act like a total (s)asshole so they will know not to mess with me so easily? Depends on the mood.

5. You have probably never actually hurt someone’s feelings

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F6360732811788624101939274542_aries.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1017&h=d3a77322abc6f0ce16b4df60da1eb3e0d552c3acbc98cac05326fb2a44daf2ed&size=980x&c=1923578488 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F6360732811788624101939274542_aries.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1017%26h%3Dd3a77322abc6f0ce16b4df60da1eb3e0d552c3acbc98cac05326fb2a44daf2ed%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1923578488%22%7D" expand=1]

Once in a blue moon, your sassy comments get a bit out of hand (or so you think) and you worry for hours afterward that you actually, like, really offended someone. Then, when you go and apologize to them (because you are too nice not to, of course) they confess to you that they were never offended, either because your comment did not actually come across as mean at all or they “know you are too nice a person” to actually try and offend someone like that. Sigh, time to work harder.

6. Finding friends is such a struggle

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F6360732819394200902108337378_friendless.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=296&h=93ade799af30a89a65d982428bb3518374a47174608bf119a137db70aca8333d&size=980x&c=2389918351 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F6360732819394200902108337378_friendless.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D296%26h%3D93ade799af30a89a65d982428bb3518374a47174608bf119a137db70aca8333d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2389918351%22%7D" expand=1]

You find it hard to be friends with people who are not actually nice, because deep down you are too nice to tolerate mean people—but you also cannot be friends with people who are too nice because they most likely will not be able to tolerate your sassiness. Ugh, that friendless life.

7. But actually, that is a joke because your flexible personality allows you to be friends with many people

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073282673674127-737961969_gretchen.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=520&h=6bc34997310ff80de506918afa7d8784322a9d0112dffff853f391b77a8b6882&size=980x&c=3882296275 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073282673674127-737961969_gretchen.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D520%26h%3D6bc34997310ff80de506918afa7d8784322a9d0112dffff853f391b77a8b6882%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3882296275%22%7D" expand=1]

You can basically convince anyone that you are really nice (because you are), and therefore most people want to be friends with you—but you also have enough snark (or snark attempts) to show people that you are not to be messed with, which is also a trait that many people admire.

8. You are secretly kind of (actually downright) jealous of queen bees, especially those from TV shows

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073283464147882-1202452467_blair.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=744&h=cc1583be8627cded5d4ed8e5705eec736246ecfb42306545a65d9efec0fc5a50&size=980x&c=1032179069 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073283464147882-1202452467_blair.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D744%26h%3Dcc1583be8627cded5d4ed8e5705eec736246ecfb42306545a65d9efec0fc5a50%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1032179069%22%7D" expand=1]

Like, you wish you had the power to actually come across as being that snarky. But deep down, you are thankful that you are not capable of producing all the drama that Blair Waldorf gets herself into, so you just live vicariously through her while you sit back with the popcorn watching her on TV and enjoying your drama-free life.

9. You often read articles with titles such as “41 Signs You’re a Sasshole,” thinking they are going to be so relatable….

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073285257745668309534487_wifflegif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=963&h=aee2153290fd87e394d4ea8928a385276d8cc8632b3b7f6ebd5c98db1a7e8445&size=980x&c=3958423830 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073285257745668309534487_wifflegif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D963%26h%3Daee2153290fd87e394d4ea8928a385276d8cc8632b3b7f6ebd5c98db1a7e8445%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3958423830%22%7D" expand=1]

But then a few points in you realize that you do not relate to it at all, because deep down you are not actually a sasshole and no one actually thinks you are a bitch.

10. Sometimes you get really mad and wish you could actually come across as a total bitch…

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F6360732887847202681101274228_http---mashable.com-wp-content-uploads-2013-06-Glee1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=770&h=44567ea3f71297efb60ea46e81d0051c410c692af999c9094a5c3781353e2615&size=980x&c=3710945986 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F6360732887847202681101274228_http---mashable.com-wp-content-uploads-2013-06-Glee1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D770%26h%3D44567ea3f71297efb60ea46e81d0051c410c692af999c9094a5c3781353e2615%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3710945986%22%7D" expand=1]

11. …but at the end of the day, you are thankful for how nice you are

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F20%2F636073290607436892-1067024001_signs-you-found-your-best-friend-forever-9.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1012&h=6191b2bc7e284761d477651ba47035330c473f5dd7e9a94933489a2c75cc9bdf&size=980x&c=1466408545 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F20%252F636073290607436892-1067024001_signs-you-found-your-best-friend-forever-9.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1012%26h%3D6191b2bc7e284761d477651ba47035330c473f5dd7e9a94933489a2c75cc9bdf%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1466408545%22%7D" expand=1]

Okay, let’s face it—it is fun to be sassy, but deep down you know that being nice is going to get you much farther in life. You may even be a bit proud of the fact that everyone thinks you are nice—okay, you are really proud. You love being nice, and could not picture actually being mean to anyone. Let’s just be thankful that we can get away with being as sassy as we want and still come across as nice, because not many people can do that.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
