Teacher made a comment - August 18th 2011, 09:52 PM

So today I was in one of my favorite teacher's office writing my locker combo on my wrist cause the list was on her desk. She came up behind me and goes "Just so you know, it looks like your slicing your wrists" and laughed. And then out of a defense mechanism I laughed!! Ugh...Im really just rambling. Im not going to talk to her or do anything about it...I just wanted to tell yall. So Im dont now!


"When you've forgiven but you cant forget feels like your drowning but still got breath"

i love you.

YOU are beautiful no matter what and dont YOU forget it!!! <3

PM me if you need to talk!(:

These kind of situations are difficult and awquard, you will probably experience more situations like this again. So it is good that you seem to of coped with this one well.

That seems like an awkward comment for sure! I would have gotten so nervous or something, I'm glad that you seemed to have gotten through that comment all right.

Hey there,

It's always hard and awkward when things like this happen, but it does sound like you coped with it well.

I know you said you didn't want to talk to her so i won't push it, but if you ever want to talk about why or you want to talk in general feel free to PM me
Take care,
Charli

Good on you for handling it smoothly! I remember once when my piano teacher made a similar comment, I started rambling about how my friend had a really agressive cat...it got awkward :P

Re: Teacher made a comment - August 23rd 2011, 10:27 AM

my friend made an awkward comment yesterday in a similar situation, we was the train station and I noticed a scratch on her wrist area and asked her what it was pointing to it and she simply said ' rabbit scratch friends rabbit jumped from my arms and I had to catch it' Then my friend went on to say ' Don't worry I not been slitting my wrists'. I simply smiled at her and then laughed it off. It's sometimes the only thing you can do in them sort of situations where people are joking about self harm.
