I don’t know if y’all are social media butterflies or not. . .
But, on TikTok there’s this trend. It says “What were the words that broke you?” Then you write what people said to you and how you proved them wrong.
Typically, it’s a kid who was bullied for being small or fat and then it shows them all fit and muscular.
Sometimes it’s the death of a loved one. . .
Anyway, the point is that I have heard my phrase today and I’ll never be the same again.
I Snap called my friend who happens to be my little sister’s best friend as well. It’s her birthday and we talked for a bit, but as the call continued we played around with the Snap filters.
I see my little sister beside her, and Glory (my sister) starts throwing jabs at me, saying that this is HER trip and that it was to get away from me.
Now, keep in mind that this is minutes after I get a video from Glory’s friend’s mom saying how much Glory misses me and my other sister.
(Glory has been on vacation with my mom in Texas for that past week.)
And I take the blows up until Glory says, “She’s just being FAKE! SHE’S JUST A FAKE PERSON!” Glory’s friend tries to defend me but the damage has been done. Not just my other friends were listening but several other people I respect and love as well. . .
And, they all heard that I was trying to be fake because I use Snap filters on my photos. Yep.
This is the family I know and love.
With that being said, the phrase that broke me was, “She’s a fake.”
Thank you, Glory. Thank you for just making me feel even more insecure about myself and from now on, I will never forget what you said or how I will change myself because of your words.
I hope your anger will subside one day, but until it does, I won’t be the same person you once knew. Grace is gone. And it’s your fault.
So, from now on, I am going to take a pause from posting on social media; I won’t quit posting here just because it’s therapeutic.
And, I will also become the recluse my little sister expects of me.
Stay tuned for my next post. . .
