So my friend said something to me last night which really upset me. She called me a nerd, and she said I’m in the ‘bottom group’ and she’s in the ‘second to top group’, for popularity. She said I’m such a chicken it’s no wonder I hang round with the ‘nerds’. I mean, I thought that was quite a bitchy thing to say, so I told her. She immediately apologies and said she could help me become more popular, but I’m not asking for popularity, I’m just asking not to be judged for who I am, I’m asking for people to respect me, and asking for people to be kind enough to me that I don’t have to worry about hanging out with my friends, I’m asking not to have to dig deeper into what it could mean when somebody calls our friendship group ‘cute’.
and besides, you can’t really take something like that back. She apologised and I just told her to forget about it, but those words are in my mind forever now.
I don’t want to be a ner but
thats who I am
i just want to be confident
i just want to be happy
