So this might be considered a rant. Not really sure how to categorize it, but we'll just say it's a rant.
This girl I've known since kindergarten - let's call her, ah, Stephanie - has recently brought me to the very last straw. Now lemme give some background on Stephanie. She's a really good artist, makes amazing art. Likes anime... a little too much. She's always been overweight (No offense, but it's true. And I'm not saying you're a bad erson if you're overweight, I'm just giving some background, here). Enjoys to complain a lot (rich coming from me, I know), and enjoys accusing people of hypocrisy when she herself is the biggest hypocrite in my very grade.
Like I said earlier, we've known each other for a while. She was "bullied" often as a kid. I say "bullied" because she never really was. Of course, there was a mean thing said to her every now and then, but who doesn't experience an insult as a kid? We're friggin kids, of course we're going to insult each other. But she always exaggerated that people would rub poison ivy on her and kick her out of our "friend group" - which was not true in the slightest. She was always invite to parties and to hang out with us, and no one ever bullied her.
That's not even it. She's always pitying herself and trying to guilt trip other people. Stephanie always tries to complain about how hard her life is and how her parents never pay attention to her and abuse her. She always says that she can't even say "I love you" to her father, but honestly, that's complete bullshit. Because one day, we were at the mall and she saw some really expensive markers she liked (almost $100), and her dad bought it for her, and she wrapped her arms around him and kept saying how good of a dad he was and how much she loves him. Her parents have never abused her and never ignored her, and I know this because I always see her parents pampering her and in fact, ignoring her older brother instead - who she claims draws the attention away from her.
And the different personalities this girl has... gosh, it's unreal. I get that there are different facets of your personality, but hers is... it's not even a personality, I don't know what it is. You guys know who ditto is, right? Like the pokemon. For those of you who don't, he can copy any pokemon, basically. Well, this girl's personality's like ditto. Although she doesn't copy a personality, depending on who she's talking to, she changes her personality in order to appear more likable to the person she's trying to please. I get that you can't completely be yourself when meeting someone new, but Stephanie completely flips her hobbies, likes, dislikes and current personality. For example, she could be very lazy, introverted, cold, hate anime, and hate working out, but when someone new comes along, oh boy, it's the exact opposite. She immediately screams how amazing anime is and how great it is to work out, become super extroverted and warm to people. Look, I get you act differently towards different people, but the way Steph acts is to the extreme. She even occasionally changes her religion to appease the person she's talking to!
And she's a weeaboo. I know this is really ironic since I'm posting this on a site dedicated to praising anime, but that's not really what a weeaboo is. Yes, it's okay to like anime, yes it's okay to cosplay, yes it's okay to go to cons and have merchandise, it's okay to learn Japanese and want to move to Japan, but it's not okay to be a weeaboo. For those of who don't know what that is, it's basically a non-japanese person who wants to become Japanese. They learn the language through anime, but Japanese people and anime on this pedestal, and worship it. They show no respect towards the culture, and pretend to be Japanese even though they aren't. Like I said, it's okay to like anime, Japanese culture, Japanese, and praise the people and whatever, but you should do it with respect. This girl has no respect for it, and badly wants to be Japanese because she thinks that it will magically make all her problems go away. She pretends to act like she's in an anime by sticking out her butt and showing a lot of cleavage, and even trying to eat like they do in animes.
Like this. It's really annoying after a while.
And then her talking about her body. Yes, it's great to love your body. It's and extremely important part for you to love yourself. But Steph's always talking about how big her boobs and but are, and how she's already a Double D in cup size. Like I said, it's great to love your body and it's wonderful she loves her boobs. Honestly, it really is. But when that's all you talk about.. It's really annoying to have to only listen about how big your boobs are. Like fuck, can you stop?
Lastly, the one thing I hate the most about her is about how much she made me hate myself. In the last paragraph, I talked about how all she discussed was her cup size, and that made me feel inferior to her. I... I don't have big boobs. They're really small, and I felt very inferior towards her because she kept flaunting her chest everywhere and kept telling me how small my boobs were, and how no guy found me attractive because of my breast size. Of course overtime, I learned to love them (as strange as that sounds ). I know it sounds really trivial, but at the time, it really hurt me how she always told me that I'd never get a boyfriend because my boobs were too small, and how no one would ever care about me. She always criticized me over my bust, so I developed some body issues because of it. Of course, I'm over it like I said before, but it was still really rude.
