It seems like my first amendment rights are being revoked by those who claim themselves to be friends. Well, not really revoked, but whenever I do speak my mind, I get attacked for what I say, then their goal becomes to make me feel as awkward and awful as possible.
I've been told by so-called friends to f*** off....to stay away, leave them alone, shut up.....I've been called names and criticized. I mention something small, someone blows it out of proportion, and suddenly I'm inconsiderate and ignorant and hateful. It's just not right. I have no ill intent toward anyone, and a person who knows me, especially a friend, would understand that.
I mention that my knee hurts, and a so-called friend says "Well so-and-so is having knee surgery, she'd probably be happy to just have a sprained knee".....well, yes, minimize my pain. Because it's not surgery, it can't hurt, right? Therefore, I should portray sickening happiness, and allow people to minimize me. To do otherwise would be rude and ignorant.
I'm just so tired. No, my life isn't the worst out there, I know that. But that doesn't mean it can't be horrible, stressful, etc. I just want to be appreciated, that's all. I don't want people hating me because I say one thing or another. Just because I noticed that people say "hi" a lot doesn't mean that I believe we shouldn't greet each other- I like greeting others and being greeted. Just because I say something hurts doesn't mean I'm saying nobody hurts worse. Things can easily be misinterpreted over the internet. Just don't jump to the gun.
