Yes exactly. Some people live a a world of delusion and they surround themselves with other people who are also living in delusion.
They convince each other that someone is the “big bad wolf” or “bully” (no matter what the actual truths are of course) and must be obliterated through personal attacks. They smugly pat each other on the back for each blow and thus they have become the bullies.
Then at the end of the day when confronted with the reality and responsibility of their own actions and words they want it be chalked up to “teenage ignorance” as one so eloquently stated it. They’d like to be excused for their age while simultaneously bashing me for my age.
So based on that “logic” I suppose these same people ( who are over 18) can say go commit crimes and such and we should all know better than to blame them for their own actions and instead realize that it’s just their “teenage ignorance”.
They have no concept of reality or responsibility. Yet I remain the “bad person”. Amazing how much in denial people allow themselves to live in.
No need to apologize for anything- everyone is an individual and only responsible for their own actions and words.
Btw- it was these types of girls (cliques) that made me hate High School. Although I have never been bullied until (ironically) making a blog on the interent. In real life these people wouldn’t say one word to my face and I know it.
