After graduating high school, I finally realized that there are some people out there that I just truly don't like or that hurt me to the point that there is no way to fix it and for that reason, we will never ever be friends. Although I pride myself on kindness and open mindedness, some people just need a can of whoop ass handed to them. So last year a young lady I knew quite well moved to my school, and I tried to greet her with kindness and welcome her and instead of just accepting the kindness, she decided she had to be the victim.
She told everyone, all of the people I hold near and dear to my heart that I was saying mean things about her and you know what, the saddest part is she thinks I cared enough to say those things. I didn't have the time to sit down and say stuff about someone who was irrelevant to any situation I was dealing with at the time. So I tried to tell her to stop, and she decided that was mean.
She will never understand how much she truly hurt me. She almost ruined my actual friendships by trying to make herself a victim in a situation that didn't exist. This person single handily almost ruined my senior year of high school, but then I realized what was there all along: who the hell cares?! She is irrelevant. I realized that no matter how much you want to be someone's friend, if all they want to do is play the victim, they shouldn't matter to you.
I guess I'm better off for knowing her because now I know that I don't have to be everyone's friend, and if they are willing to go through so much trouble and try to ruin everything I care about, then they don't deserve me. Also, when she went to my friends, they all immediately told me what was up and that is true friendship. I have the greatest friends and I still love them and they still love me with or without her. I cannot thank them enough for being amazing people and even as I've moved on with my life, they are still so supportive.
Maybe I don't have to be everyone's friend and maybe everyone is not gonna like me, but that's OK. With that being said, if you come at me, I'll clap back.
