Have you ever lost a longtime friend because they refused to stop "ripping" on your acne? I have, a friend of almost 7 years. It all started when he lost weight, he was always heavier than me and was nice to everyone but after the weight loss he started taking potshots at me, saying i looked like the moon aka round and cratered. Soon after everytime I ran into him he'd say something else offensive, sometimes even getting our friends to laugh along. After a few weeks of this abuse I started fighting back, Every time he make a joke about my acne i'd make a joke about him being bi-polar, this offended him,And he asked why I was doing that and i simply replied "If you make fun of something I cant help I'll do the same to you". After that I distanced myself from him, since then my confidence has skyrocketed and my acne has cleared up quite alot.
Fast forward about 9 months later. I'm at the blackops 2 lauch and guess who I see, well I can't ignore him can I? So walking up to him and saying hi the first thing he says is "man you got fat." What in the actual f**k, who does that? So i spent the launch listening to him blather on and brag. After that night If i see him I just try to get past him, as he brags on about his life and tells me what i need do with mine.
From all this I learned something, there is a difference between nice and kind, Being nice is doing kind things to win approval because you must compensate for something, while being kind is a permanent thing no matter your situation. Maybe i'm wrong though was my skin too thin or was I right to stop hanging around him?
