OmegaMan Posted November 25, 2004 Share Posted November 25, 2004 I have this weird friend at work. She is a beautiful, funny person. Everything is perfect when we are together and we have loads of fun. I always try to be kind to her (not nice, kind) and have been very comprehensive of many things. She sometimes have reactions which I just don't understand. She sometimes make jokes which are quite simply hurtful. They're not even jokes (since there is nothing funny about them), they're just mean comments said in a jokingly way. She also has the tendency to make comments like that when we're in a group, so I look silly, stupid or to humiliate me. The thing is, from what I gather, I have not done anything to instigate those kind of behaviours. Every time I don't say anything, it then burns me inside. Like some kind of venom. Writing it does some good, however it doesn't go completely away. I think I still live in a world of fantasy where if you treat someone right, they will treat you right in return, with respect. But she doesn't. I know what some of you will say, that she isn't a good friend, that I should dump her. But she is so genuinely cool sometimes and I do have a lot of fun with her. I know, I know, I probably should talk to her, explain to her what pisses me off about her comments. I have trouble with self-affirmation. I either don't say anything or I burst up and overreacted and praticly slaughter the person in front of me (in a litteral way of course). But If I don't say anything, it stays down there and boils and brews. Well, I will read any comments with great interest. Thank you for reading. Etienne aka Omega Man. Quote Link to comment
