Picking Pockets

The life of a vine involves many twists and turns – it grows forward; it grows toward the light.

Yesterday I worked on my room. It has gone from being a complete disaster to an organized mess. I haven’t completed the entire cleaning and organizing process yet – when I was vacuuming the closet, the vacuum kind of overheated … So I took a break. I never realized how colorful my room could be; I never realized how many colorful things I had. Cleaning comes now; organizing comes later.

Mimi taught me how to make stew by myself. Now I know how to for the future, and now I can make it if I ever want some and not need help. 😛 She said that it was a great time to make it, too – there was a sale on stew meat (pork).

Remember how I said I would stand up for myself? It’s not easy to when the person(s) won’t even listen. 🙁 It’s like they don’t think before they speak what is on their minds; as if they think it’s all a joke. Anytime a noun is put down it is never a joke. >.< And what kind of person is someone being when they put someone down? A bully. And no matter how much you try to get them to listen to you, they are not going to listen. If they do listen, they are not going to understand. They put on a show in front of others, but in front of the people that have known them the longest, they feel the weakest around and feel the need to control the most. They are bullies.

What’s more insulting is when someone you love joins in – or worse: starts it.

Bullies pick on torn and patched up pockets – pockets that have been through a lot. They pick their pockets before they actually tear them apart and break them down like decomposers. Bullies, take a bow before people you want to impress, because they’re the only ones you are fooling.

Bullies are despicable people. They are best ignored so they don’t get any attention for what they’re doing. If one of your loved ones is doing the bullying, then you make sure they know that you disapprove.

Standing up for yourself is hard when nobody listens. Just keep going, it’ll pay off sooner or later! We’re all hear listening online from far away!

I feel like you just described my mother.

hugs I know how it feels, trust me. You don’t have to tell me what’s going on unless you want to, but I know what it’s like to be ignored, to not be listened to. I know what it’s like to get the brunt of someone’s rage. Hell.

Yeah. My mother puts on a show around everyone outside of this house. And that’s all I have to say about it. I know how you feel, hun. If you need to talk to anyone, don’t hesitate to send me an email. I know what you’re going through. But you’re strong and you can keep hanging on. Never let anyone bully you.

Let your bright colourful room take you in. 🙂 Sometimes we need a little something to brighten our days. Surround yourself with people and things that make you happy. I hope things get better for you. <3

Liz,

I need to do what you’ve been doing, only I need to do for my whole house. It’s not it’s a mess; it’s just that I have so much junk that needs to go:~)

You are right about bullies, but there are ways to handle bullies.

One way is to not respond to the tirade and wait until they’re done and then simply say, “I can’t talk to you when you’re being a bully or acting this way.”

If that’s not possible,you can walk away from a bully; just leave them because it’s not worth fighting them. If it’s a parent or another adult with authority over you, simply ask calmly if you go to your room.

I’ve always found that a bully’s words are not really about the person they are bullying, even if it feels like that. In truth, a bully is just someone with something really wrong in their own life and they don’t know how to deal with it..so they bully.

Another idea if you can’t escape the bully, is to visualize the bully as someone silly, like a cartoon character or you can visualize them as growing smaller and smaller with each mean word they say. The idea is to remove the bully’s power over you…if only in your mind.

Stay true to who YOU are and not to what people tell you are. I’m pretty old compared to you and I can tell you this — you DO get to define who you become; no one truly defines YOU unless you let them:~)

Good thoughts to you!

one of my aims for the first quarter of this year is a complete revamp of my flat, so I’m with you on the cleaning. I love it when you tidy and find something you’ve not found in ages and then base everything around it 🙂

This is a good post.

My room barely ever gets really messy but when it does, it is an organized mess as I am an organization freak. Hopefully you can get everything straightened out and be able to enjoy a clean room. 🙂

I love stew. Never made it, but I would love to know how. I should put it in one of the things I would like to do before I die.

You are completely right about the whole bullies thing. It makes it even more painful if it is someone that you trust or love. Nevertheless, each bully is hurting inside somehow. A lot of times, by putting some people down, it makes them feel better inside. I could be wrong, but just hold your head high and ingnore it.


That is what I am thinking. It would be fate if it happened. Nevertheless, I will have to try and bring it up causually with him. See if Iam off my rocker which I probably am.

@Ashley,

I’m even okay with what it looks like right now. ^^

Just randomly bring up what his favorite websites are, and then wahlah. 😛 😉

Stew is easier to make than it looks.

@Liz,

Really? I will have to surprise my family with stew one night that I have to cook supper. 😉

I will also have to ask him. I doubt he would say LTC was one of them though. He is super shy. >:|
