Why do you even bother lying about that? If you're that concerned about it, go make real friends. If you don't want friends, don't bother lying about it either.
I have to say I agree with #4, of you want friends go out and meet people. Pick a new hobby or take a class and meet people with a similar intrest and talk to them. When you meet some one who you are comfortable with maybe he/she will introduce you to his/her friends, if they are allright you will build up your own social network and become their friends. I have gain a very close group of friends that way. I say give people a chance, perhaps they will give you one to.
Sometimes it's not that easy. It may be hard for her because she may have a self esteem problem, a mental illness, or may be extremely shy that prevents her from doing that. I know that that is the case with me. For years it was extremely difficult for me because of said things but I've learned ways and tried to break out of my shell. Anyways OP. Chin up! You will make friends! Just always hope for the best! I have faith in you! :)
I'm not saying it's easy, I'm saying there's no point in lying about it. Even less so to close family. They know you don't get calls or receive visitors. Obviously they'd see through the deception. Why do you even try to impress them anyway? Not like they'll kick you out of the family tree.
It's not easy to make friends. I have major self confidence issues, think I'm too weird or ugly and I have been ditched by so many people that I genuinely have a hard time talking to people, and since my family has financial issues as well as medical problems I don't get out much. People I love have told me to just "go make friends" and it's "not that hard"; You DO NOT know OP's situation, please do not be so quick to judge.. And as for the lying to the family, it's hard to tell people when you know they will just tell you to go make friends.
i understand how you feel I usto be very shy and almost didn't speak at all and didn't have many friends until one day this girl started talking to me and made me hang out with her friends. I eventually started to enjoy talking to them and wasn't so shy any more. a year later she did move schools and the group feel appart but I stopped being so shy thanks to them. I know going out and finding friends is never wasy but all I can say is if one day people try being your friend don't push them away it might end up beibg a great friendship.
The whole FML website is based on assumptions, all comments are basically asumptions. But like others and I have said, avoiding most forms of social contact will lead to solitude. I am not saying it is easy to make friends/gain social contacts. But as it is with all things, one has to play an active part, despite other issues. People may not know of your personal issues and may come over as rude, but once you make good contact they are considerate most of the time, if not they are no friends.
27 - I didn't say it was easy. But lying won't help. I don't even say OP should necessarily make friends. However, this FML is based on a lie being seen through. I doubt there would've been severe consequences if OP said she had no plans and saved herself the embarrassment she is now upset about.
I would go shopping with you... but I'm not sure if I exist either.
I bet that your sistet has an imaginary friend to. It's okay to create that lie for your sister to get of your back. I will be your friend.
My name's Emy.... I'll be your friend! Don't mind the mustache, I'm not actually creepy in person. I only touch little boys.
I feel like all horrible subjects should be treated with a humorous regard. It takes away the power for the experience to inflict lingering pain when you can laugh at it, this spoken from another victim. All of the bad things that have happened to me in life have been treated with laughter, because it neutralizes the awful feelings that would otherwise make my life less pleasant. If you're offended, as a victim, I apologize..But I do think that giving horrible personal experiences the power to offend lends more harm than good to one's emotional well-being. That's just me though.
To the defence of miss Sushi, I say that one is free to make any joke, however inapropriate, however the reception of said joke always varies. Personally I believe that once you start to live in a place where you can't say or joke about certain things, it becomes scary. I think intent is more hurtfull than content of words/jokes.
Then tell me how someone on the internet may know that someone else, perhaps on the other side of the world might be offended. Is this a reason for self censorship? Not for me at least, like I said, I think intent is more hurtfull than the actual words. I don't think that she joked, just to offened people.
I'm not defending myself. I apologized to the person that I offended, explained why I don't censor "taboo" subjects, and clarified that I, too, am a victim of child molestation. My sense of humor isn't everyone's cup of tea, but those people aren't my friends. People I get along with understand my point of view, and those who don't can try or decide not to. Really doesn't make a difference to me, I'm not affected by it.
49- In person, one can usually get a read in whether or not someone else would be receptive to a certain kind of humor. At work, we all make "innapropriate" and distasteful jokes, because it's part of the culture. Online, it's a bit different sometimes. Everyone's offended by something, and it's fine if someone chooses to let a joke ruin their mood, that's their right. I really don't mind it.
There are certain subjects that are not tasteful to joke about. Granted, I accept the right of free speech, but the right to do so does not make it morally appropriate. Morality itself is subjective, but there are universal stigmas associated with child molestation throughout the world. Everyone deals with such situations differently. I chose to live my life by seeing the world for its true beauty, and not by the actions of a few individuals. Humor towards such a subject as a coping mechanism seems odd to me. I was not entirely offended, but found it to be an offense to all victims in general. Not every individual who has been through those experiences have the ability to see that in a positive light. Most don't in actuality. While I personally find it distasteful, and find that people should not joke about such a topic, I defend your right to do so. Just don't expect not to receive flak for making such jokes.
