Things You Said That I Wished You Hadn’t

People can easily get caught up in the things that they’re told. I know I have.

You might be told something that can be revealing, but hard to hear. You can be told something completely untrue, but you find yourself sitting around, analyzing the things you do, and checking whether or not it’s actually true. You can be told something you just didn’t really want to hear, because it changes the way you see a person.

Either way, we’re told these things on a daily basis—whether we like it or not. Here are a few things I wish I hadn’t been told. (Full disclosure: I’m not crediting anybody for what they’ve said, because you know, that’d be really messed up.)

(Sidenote: The following quotes are not necessarily verbatim, but they may as well be, by how many times I’ve replayed them in my head.)

“You keep information to yourself, but then you wait for the perfect moment to use it against people.”

“I just really want you to get a boyfriend…then, you’d understand.”

“You know, you’re a really hateful person.”

What is your problem?”

“The problem is that you don’t talk. One day, you’re just gonna combust.”

“Why are you so judgy? I don’t think you realize how judgmental you actually are.”

“I like you, as more than a friend.”

“If I could find a girl that looked like Megan Fox, but had a personality like yours, she’d be perfect.”

“I can’t believe there are some women out there who don’t want to change their last name for a guy, that’s so rude.”

“Stop putting a meaning to everything! Not every thing needs to have a meaning behind it.”

How did you get into college?”

“You’re such a know-it-all; you’re not always right.”

“Sometimes, I wish you were a guy.”

“Why do you read into ever little thing?”

“I love you, but I don’t, like, love you love you.”

“You’re more of a dreamer than a doer, ya feel me?”

“Stop being such a little bitch.”

“You need to have your privacy invaded.”

“Here’s a tip: learn some life skills.”

“You’re going to end up just like your parents. Everybody does.”

“…You? But you have no talent!”

Prompt: List things that a person has said (or multiple people have said) to you that you wished you hadn’t been told.
