BULLYING IS BULLYING NO MATTER WHO IT COMES FROM.

IT JUST HURTS A FUCKLOAD A LOT MORE WHEN ITS COMING FROM PEOPLE YOU TRUST

FUCK OFF.

this post will often go weeks without a note

and then there’ll be a holiday

and it resurfaces

and that makes me sad

I relate to this a lot.

My extended family really likes to pick on each other at gatherings (it’s supposedly their way of showing affection, since being vulnerable and genuine is just too hard) and often when we get together, all my embarrassing adolescent moments get brought up and laughed at.  I’m never given space to “get over them” because they’re literally brought up every time I see those people, and totally get retold and twisted into a bigger deal than they were until I end up feeling gaslighted and having a borderline panic attack.  It’s at the point where I get a ton of anxiety when I’m going to have any kind of reunion with my extended family. 

Don’t be one of those people who embarrasses or bullies others for reasons like supposedly showing affection, feeling included, or to avoid being bullied yourself.  Especially if they show signs of not liking or appreciating that kind of treatment.  Be the one who rises higher than that type of behavior.
