I’m becoming a snob…
but I’m not sure I actually care…
I used to be fairly quiet. Which annoyed people. They kept telling me to get out of my shell more and friends who took me to parties used to get irritated at my wallflower behaviour. But I’ve recently grown more confident and I’m happy, I’ve gained a voice and educated myself, all traits that are commonly believed to make us better people, but its now compromising my friendships…I’m realising how immature the people I hang out with are :/ particularly the boys. They call each other bros, use old dated Internet memes in common language and belittle women who don’t fit the barbie doll convention they want. They’re obsessed with looks :/ a recent “hilarious” thing they did was take a picture of a homeless man who walks around our city. He’s clearly suffering a mental illness of some sort, and yet he’s a joke, people posted his picture all over social networking sites mocking him, accusing him of paedophilia etc. I just can’t associate myself with these people anymore :/ and what worries me is that it seems to be becoming more and more common in people, this “trolling” attitude that mocks and hurts complete strangers. They’ve started calling me a snob for retaliating and not laughing. But frankly…I’m not sure I care anymore :/
