I need to grow a spine

People make jokes at my expense.  I laugh along with them.

I’m laughing on the outside.  I’m hurting on the inside.

I try not to take myself too seriously.  Maybe I don’t take myself seriously enough.

I’ve never been good at standing up for myself.

I don’t like to be laughed at.

Made fun of.

Bullied.

I need to grow a spine.

I need to assert myself.  To not worry about who it will offend.

My feelings are important too.

If you don’t think so, you can get lost.

Offended

People get offended way too easily.

(Warning: language: pg-ish?)

I don’t understand the point of getting offended.

That’s not to say I never get my feelings hurt.  But I try to let go of it as quickly as possible.

Being offended is a choice.

You choose whether to be offended.  Whether to hold a grudge or let it go.

Holding a grudge only hurts you.

Let it go.

And don’t start singing that stupid song from Frozen.  I hate that song, and I’m offended.  😉
