I just moved back home the other month & I feel like I'm in high school all over again.
See I moved into my parents apartment complex where my parents & two sisters both live as well. We all have kids & we all share the same yard so we see eachother daily. Since moving back it seems like one of my sisters is always joking & poking fun at me.
Another thing I was adopted later in life & am much younger then my siblings so this is the first time that I have had to deal with siblings in my life. The oldest of all the kids is the one always making jokes at me. If this keeps up all summer long its going to be very long.
I was always poked fun of in high school then after leaving & moving away for a time that eneded. It was nice not to be everyones joke & I thought that it was over. I guess I was wrong. People have told me its bc its so easy to poke fun at me. Well thats still not fair it still wears me down & yes makes me upset. I dont cry about it or whine & I dont poke back mainly bc I am not witty enough or quick enough to do it like they all do.
I currently just laugh with it but then sometimes I have to say something sternly to get a point across & if all else fails I have to literally walk away from the group & find another spot of the yard where I can be away from them. I dont know what to do though I cant keep this up all summer long simply walking away & having them all think that I am some kind of party pooper when I'm really not. Lucky for me the yard is huge the size of a field so I can at least go somewhere else & be away from them but still its not right.
Okay venting over its just annoying & I dont know what to do about it. I dont want to just smile while they all make jokes at my expense, I dont want to be a downer & walk away every time, if I stick up for myself I get called grumpy then another joke comes from that. I like to joke around too but not when its just one person always being picked on just when its like everyone who is getting poked fun at. Oh well sorry just had to vent it somewhere.
I think it's wrong to joke around at the expense of another person. Especiallly the people were closest to. I understand completely because I was made fun of alot. and sadly I'm married with a child and still get made fun of by people, my in laws, my co workers etc.... I distance myself from ignorant people who poke fun at others. it's not okay. and regardless it doesnt feel good...
