Just Say No
No matter how much pre-wedding planning or counseling a couple does, the truth is that sometimes they get to the end of that aisle and realize what they’re doing doesn’t make sense to them. This may suck for the other person, but at least they found out before the marriage was completely set in stone.
That being said, this guy could have probably saved this girl from heartache and financial debt if he had just spoken his mind before this.
When you get married, one of the traditions is to go out and celebrate your last day of being single. Many people do this by hitting a club, which is entirely acceptable unless you do it like this woman did.
The fact that she didn’t wake up on her day should be a clear sign that maybe this wasn’t her day. After all, if it were that important, even if she were passed out, she would have figured out a way to get there.
Raise Your Hand
There are a lot of questions that we have about this story. The first is why this teacher would invite her whole 4th-grade class? That seems a little odd and a setup for some potential failure and conflict of interest.
The second is how she made it almost entirely up the aisle before she realized that this was not the place for her to be. This just seems like poor planning!
Woke Up With the Answer
If you’ve had a couple of years of struggling with deciding if you want to get married, then the answer is probably no. Why would someone go through all this struggle when the answer was staring them right in the face?
Especially if you wound up becoming a priest, he definitely had no urge to commit to a relationship in this manner.
Don’t Talk To Him
We’re sure it’s hard when a wedding doesn’t go off, especially if you’re super close to your fiancé’s family. But when it’s done because of false information, you lose touch with the people you built a close connection with.
We actually feel really sorry for this guy as it seems like he genuinely didn’t do anything wrong, yet the girl still did this. Perhaps she really wanted out of it, and she used it as an excuse?
We’ve all seen those movies where the couple gets to the end of the aisle, and it gets to the part of the ceremony where the priest asks if there are any objections. These movies have elaborate and exciting situations in them, but we never think it’s something that happens in real life.
Apparently, we are wrong because this person lived their romantic comedy horror story right in front of their entire family. However, it was kind of their own fault!
It is one thing to end a wedding before it happens when you know that you won’t see that person on a regular basis. After all, some really hurt feelings will stay with you, and these won’t go away anytime soon.
That’s why we feel so bad for this couple that’s going to continually have to see each other because they live in a small town. On top of that, in small towns, we all know that everybody talks!
It isn’t good when a wedding ends up being called off, but we can’t even imagine when it’s around the holidays. This has to be a pretty devastating moment, and to realize that you’re not happy with the situation has to be even more devastating.
We think maybe this woman should have really figured it out when she began bursting into tears when she was trying on her wedding dress. That would have been a sure clue to us that maybe we didn’t think this was the right move.
Hanging Out With a Friend
We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty sure that we wouldn’t let our fiancé hang out with their ex before the wedding, especially if they were still this close. This woman kind of set herself up for having a devastating moment.
On the other hand, this guy should have been a little clearer and not jumped into a relationship knowing his dependencies and problems.
No Call, No Show
Of all the stories that come across when it comes to weddings that didn’t make it to the finale, a no-call no-show seems to be the worst of them all. After all, that leaves one person holding the bag, confused about what really happened.
Honestly, this guy was kind of a coward. He should have at least told the woman why he wasn’t showing up, especially when there was a child involved.
Green Card Marriage
There are many reasons why people get married, and one of them, though illegal, is to help someone stay in a country. These marriages can be very tricky and costly for both parties in many different ways.
So it’s probably best that these two found out that they were incompatible before they tied the knot. Otherwise, they would have been in a world of trouble when they had to do those interviews with the government officials.
Sometimes, when people separate after being together for quite a while, there’s no reason for it. It’s just that they don’t work and have grown apart. So we kind of understand why there was no reason or explanation.
On the other hand, this woman was kind of crazy when she asked him this question. Clearly, she should’ve already known the answer. If he had ever loved her, he would’ve given her some sort of explanation.
Arranged marriages can be challenging because you don’t really know the person you’re walking down the aisle to marry. So perhaps in this situation, having someone leave the other was probably the best thing that could have happened.
Who knows what would have happened if they had actually made it down the aisle. We guess that it would eventually have ended in heartbreak.
Sometimes, people just decide that they see no future with you. This can be heartbreaking, especially when you poured time and energy into a relationship and have made it all the way to the engagement stage.
But it’s best that it happened before the actual vows were said because otherwise, that would have brought a whole world of other painful heartbreak.
Whenever you’re getting ready to marry somebody, the process leading up to that wedding can be very stressful. But just because it’s stressful doesn’t mean that you can push aside any red flags you’ve been seeing.
We think this woman should have been a little bit smarter and maybe done precisely what she said she should have done. Stop this before it got too far and too much money was spent.
Having good friends around when you make a big decision like ending an engagement right before a wedding is essential. This guy made the right decision, clearly, but it didn’t work out very well for both people.
The fact that these friends took the time to encourage him to go through with it, even when he was breaking down, just goes to show you that maybe these weren’t the good friends he needed.
There’s something to be said about being courageous when you need to make a decision that will affect multiple people’s lives. Just bailing and leaving town is not a great solution to ending an engagement.
The fact that this girl had to find out on Facebook is terrible, but the fact she thinks that this guy who did it this way will come back to her is a whole other world. Maybe therapy is necessary for her life.
I’m Here to Party
Sometimes couples just don’t work. Though opposites do attract, there has to be some sort of chemistry, and when someone who’s so lovely is marrying someone that is so not, it becomes a problem. So it’s probably best that this guy didn’t go through with the wedding.
When you make a big decision like that, what do you have to do – party! So there’s no doubt that a festival would be the first place we would go to!
There’s something to be said about ending something before it becomes too toxic. When you’re dealing with someone who has an addiction, no matter what that addiction is, it might be best to let them solve their problems first.
Though it probably hurt, we think this was for the best for this woman. Hopefully, the guy got help, and eventually, they were able to make amends at the very least.
I’ll Stand In
Being left at the altar has to be one of the most heart-wrenching situations to be in. That’s especially true when you go to a wedding like a large Indian wedding that is so elaborate and has so many people in attendance.
This guy stepping up, though, is kind of unique, and the fact that it actually worked out makes us believe that love really can conquer all.
I Had A Vision
It’s one thing to end a relationship before the wedding when you realize that you guys are not compatible in any type of area. It’s another thing to tell the woman you did it because God told you to.
We don’t care how religious you are, this just seems like a really lame excuse and a way to pass the blame off onto somebody else, and that’s not right.
It Will Help
Sometimes when we meet someone, we rely on them to fix our lives and ensure that everything will be okay. But the truth is that you wind up hurting yourself, and them, more when you do that.
That may be why it took so long for this woman to realize that she really didn’t want to go through with this wedding. It probably would have been best if the minute she started having any type of questions that she just went ahead and at least postponed the wedding.
Young love, especially first love, can be very intoxicating. This often leads to jumping into things that you’re not ready for. Perhaps this girl should have realized that when she couldn’t tell her true love she had planned to go abroad for a couple of months.
But eventually, it looks like they figured it out, and though they probably hurt each other at the moment, it was for the best in the long run.
Sometimes, you think you have found the one, but when you really look at what you need in a partner, they just don’t have it. It’s better to cut ties when you realize this than to make it all the way down the aisle.
This woman needed a stronger man than the one she was attempting to marry and called the wedding off. In the end, we’re sure that both of them were better off for it.
His Day in Court
Weddings can be expensive, and having one fall apart at the very last minute means someone is going to be left with a hefty bill. This is the bride’s family most of the time because that’s the traditional way of splitting the cost.
But this dad was right on it, and we applaud him for taking his stand. Though we are sure the bride wasn’t too happy that they had to air all her dirty laundry out in a courtroom. We’re sure dad was happy, though, when he got to pay the bills.
Dodged That One
There’s a whole process when it starts getting serious and heading towards the wedding aisle. In many cultures, that includes asking for your bride’s hand from her family. Why this guy would go through all this trouble if he knew that it wouldn’t work out is beyond us.
The fact that he broke up with her six months after doing this, and then wound up moving in right away with someone else, just goes to show you his character.
Sometimes, the disillusionment of a wedding has nothing to do with the fact that you don’t really love each other. Sometimes, external forces cause so much pressure on a relationship that the couple just can’t make it.
But that being said, we would probably say that if that was the case and you couldn’t handle the external pressure, maybe you guys really didn’t want to get married in the first place.
Not That Centerpiece!
There are a lot of decisions to be made when it comes to the wedding itself, from the dress to the venue, to the centerpieces. All of these are vitally important to many people when it comes to creating the atmosphere they want to say their “I do.”
But if a centerpiece can break up a relationship, we think that relationship was doomed from the beginning. Luckily, this couple still managed to stay together, despite the centerpieces!
Chicken or Beef?
One of the most complex decisions to make when dealing with the wedding is the food choice. After all, are you going to take the chicken, or will you take the beef? This guy had a very definitive answer to that.
Though it was funny, it definitely was a little messed up that he chose to go that far before telling his soon-to-be wife that he wasn’t going through with the whole wedding.
Which One of You?
When you’re getting ready to set up your wedding, one of the first questions most brides try to figure out is who they want to be their bridesmaids. This woman clearly chose poorly when it came to bridesmaids because they’re supposed to be people that love you and care about what you want.
We would be so mad and never speak to these women again! On top of the fact that they betrayed you, they cost you a lot of money as well.
In Love With The Idea
Some people are just in love with the idea of being married, they don’t necessarily look for someone that they love. Instead, they want to look for someone that is willing to tie the knot. This can lead to a lousy marriage.
So the fact that this guy realized this before he got too far was good for him. It may have hurt, regardless of the reasons, but it was the right decision.
There are just some guys that can’t be faithful. Whether it’s because of addiction or mental issues, it’s still a serious issue, especially if you’ve chosen to get engaged. If you are someone that’s going to be like this, then maybe you should just figure your stuff out before you drag other people into it.
For sure, if you’re going to do it, you probably shouldn’t be texting the person you did it with while your fiancé is in the room.
You can’t help but love who you love. But letting one relationship get so far, before realizing that you want a different one, can be harmful to you and everyone involved in the situation. This woman clearly didn’t see the signs, though.
We’re sorry for her that she gave up on one person for another and then found out they didn’t want her. On the other hand, sometimes karma catches up to you quickly.
Destination weddings can be beautiful. They allow your family and friends to get a little bit of a vacation while celebrating your “I do.” But that’s only if you actually plan to go through with it!
The fact that they hadn’t discussed what they wanted out of life, especially something as big as kids, and let the wedding get to the point it did is on both of them. We certainly hope that nobody holds it against him for very long!
Please Come Back!
There are times in life when you make a decision and then realize you’ve made a mistake once you’ve made that choice. But just like that, there are also times when there’s no going back, even if you realize you messed up.
This guy was intelligent and brave to stand up and say “no.” The fact that she thought they could get back together after she did this to him is crazy!
Sometimes, calling off a wedding is not necessarily the end of a relationship. There are times when other things get in the way and cause people to have to push things to the side until they can get through whatever is happening.
This couple was pretty brave when they decided to postpone their wedding. But it seems to have worked out and we certainly hope that, eventually, they’ll wind up walking down the aisle.
When the person you have feelings for has any form of addiction, it can be challenging. But most of the time, that can be overcome unless there are underlying issues on top of that.
This woman realized that there were some things that they just disagreed on and that was a good reason to call off the wedding. It seems like it was the right decision, and we probably would have done the same thing.
When it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be! Sometimes, things happen that derail the plans only to allow people to grow. We think that’s what happened here when this guy decided he would go into the military and break off his engagement to his high school sweetheart.
This is the stuff of Hollywood movies and we think it should be made into one! It’s awesome that even after 30 years, they found each other again and are happy.
Everybody gets enamored with love at the wedding but not everyone thinks about what happens afterward. This woman was just being practical in realizing that she and her significant other didn’t have the same life skills.
Without specific skills, no marriage will be successful and will eventually end. Therefore, we applaud her for deciding before anything went too far.
Just like with any stage of life, you can’t go into a marriage and not have money. There will be expenditures that need to be had, and if you’re not in a financially stable place, it could be a really challenging and an uphill battle to make a marriage work.
But it can be even more complicated when you try to push past that and be something you’re not. So this woman made the right decision. Clearly, this guy was all about trying to impress someone.
Before you get to the engagement stage, you should probably have long conversations about what you value in life. Where do you see your life going, and what are your life goals as you go through the world?
If you don’t have these conversations, there are bound to be some rude awakenings by the time you get to the actual wedding. That’s what happened here, and unfortunately, we can’t really be sorry for them because these conversations should have been had way before they got to the wedding.
Bachelorette Party Mess-Up
Bachelorette parties are something that is a tradition, and every woman wants to have one. Sometimes, they’re wild and raucous and other times, they’re a bit tamer. It all depends on the person who’s throwing them.
The one thing that’s not supposed to happen is that the bride-to-be steps out on her groom. When this happens, a breakup is what happens!
World of Warcraft
Some people stay together for a long time and start building what seems to be a married life well before they walk down the aisle. This shows investment and feelings, but when things start to change and you start to feel the shift, it’s time to speak up.
Apparently, this guy we feel so sorry for wasn’t paying attention, and his wife-to-be was a little less than loyal. This is really more like a marriage breaking up than an engagement, to be honest!
Money can be a determining factor in any relationship. It’s a tricky subject to deal with, especially when you find out that someone is not very good with it. Or maybe they think they’re good with it, but they have a problem with gambling.
Honestly, we would have done the same thing if we were this woman, especially since he was so bold to ask her for her inheritance. That’s a problem and he needed help.
Can We Talk?
Sometimes, before a wedding, people feel guilty about things they’ve done during the relationship. This is when they come clean and sometimes coming clean is good, while other times, it can be heart-wrenching and a bad idea.
This guy came clean, and unfortunately, the woman couldn’t handle it. So we understand how she felt. After all, we’re not sure we’d be able to be understanding and make it work if our significant other had a ton of extracurricular activities going on.
No Money, Honey!
Some women are really just after a sugar daddy. That means they will look for a person who has a lot of money and try to get them to walk down the aisle. In this case, we’re glad this woman actually ended up breaking it off with this guy.
After all, if he wasn’t what she thought he was, his life would have been miserable. He’d have always been trying to live up to her standards, which would have mentally strained him.
One or the Other
There are just some people that think that you can’t have everything. So when that problem was posed to this guy, he decided he had to choose between marriage and his career. He chose a career, and that may have been a mistake.
On the other hand, maybe it was a good thing. After all, everything happens for a reason, right? This could have led him to a much happier life and left her to find a devoted enough person to make anything work.
Just 3 Days Before
Sometimes it takes a while for people to figure out that someone isn’t the right one for them. We’re sure there were tons of red flags that this woman should have been able to see, but she didn’t realize it until it was just before the wedding.
The only thing that we have a problem with is the fact that this guy did this to the mother of his child. We think that what she called him was definitely accurate!
Just Wants That Ring
Many people will point to women and say, “Oh, they’re just in it for the wedding and the ring.” But the same can be said for some men, and this woman just happened to find one of those.
It’s probably good that she realized this was the type of guy he was before they actually finished tying the knot; otherwise, we’re sure that there would have been divorce papers on that table a few years down the road.
Moving to India
It’s never a good sign that someone you are in love with and engaged to decides to block you on social media. This is a dead giveaway that the relationship is probably over, and you probably should try to get refunds on all the money you put down on the wedding.
Why this guy just couldn’t tell his fiancée that he wanted out, instead of blocking her and moving to India, is beyond us. Though, it does kind of make for a funny story, as long as you’re not the person it’s happening to.
On various social media outlets, one would hear things like men with beards are the real men, men without beards are princesses in disguise. This love for beard is sort of new for many. Those who grew beards in the past were often criticized for having an “unkempt” look.
Those without beards were seen as gentlemen. It was the same story for a young boy that grew beards at a very tender age. He had beards at the age of nine and got bullied for it. Today, having beards seems trendy and guys go as far as buying skincare products to grow beards.
There are different types of foods around the world. A popular food in one culture might not be popular in another culture. This has been a reason for bullying others, especially among kids. Anything seen as different is treated with disdain. These kids were made fun of in school for eating what was described as “poop sandwiches.”
Turns out it was a Nutella sandwich from Italy. The kids’ aunt had sent it to them. Nutella is popular today and everyone is enjoying the “poop sandwiches.” Just another of those things people got bullied for but later became a trend.
Being called a cat with claws and talons is pretty up there on the list of bullying that a young child could experience. What was the reason for these names? Well, this young girl loved growing out her nails.
Nature and genetic makeup were on her side. She was able to grow strong and long nails. There were also straight. But most people didn’t admire this. However, things changed for her when having long nails became a trend. People pay money almost every week to change long nails. She has maintained her natural nail and have enjoyed standing up for herself in the face of bullies.
When one has unique physical looks, it is usually an avenue to bully such ones. This is especially true in middle schools. Young boys and girls often have a difficult time trying to blend in. One student in middle school had bushy eyebrows. This led to bullying and abuse.
The bully got to a level that this student was forced to pluck out her eyebrows countless times. The whole eyebrows lost shape and she never recovered from the plucking. Having large eyebrows is now seen as fashion. A lot of ladies add artificial eyebrows to their grooming options. It became a trend in today’s fashion world.
Food has been one identifying mark for different cultures around the world. A food common in one society might not be common in another. Some types of food or recipes, over time, become popular and spread across the world far beyond the reaches of its culture of origin.
However, before they become popular, they could be ridiculed by others. This is why a student got ridiculed in school. She was eating biryani during lunchtime. She was bullied with “yellow food” chants. But today, turmeric has become a trend for different people. It is now a popular item in lattes.
In the 90s and early 2000s, wearing glasses as a student is one easy way to get on the to-be-bullied list. Most students who wear glasses are often seen as geeks and easy to bully. It is a different story when the student has a unique type of glasses.
This particular student had glasses with plastic frames. He was bullied by students and even some teachers. Some claimed he was wearing fake glasses. However, glasses with plastic frames are now a trend. One would find people wearing glasses today just for fashion. It was a thing to be bullied for rather than to be adored for back then.
The Movie Guy
One of the most famous and most talked about movie series today is the Marvel movie series, also known by some as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there was a time when people did not find much interest in this movie series and its characters.
In fact, those who discussed movies in school were seen as outsiders. They were often bullied. One example is a young guy that was always up to date as regards the stories about his favorite characters. Others would come to him to hear about it. He was bullied in school for knowing much about these things but it is a common trend in today’s world.
The Thrift World
Financial class has always been an excuse to bully others in school. However, bullying takes a whole different level if a student is found with “hand-me-down” clothes. Buying used clothes back then was unpopular so it was easy to understand why students would be bullied for wearing them.
But in today’s world, thrifting is now seen as the trend. People even call thrift clothes vintage. One student was bullied as a kid for wearing thrift clothes, now in high school, it is as popular as day. It is another thing that became a trend after years of bullying.
Natural Curly Hair
Fashion has often been dictated by what is seen as popular and what top celebrities liked. There was a time when natural curly hair was not recognized in fashion trends. At this time, this girl had natural curly hair and she was proud of it.
However, she got bullied for her hair and she was called different names by friends and family. Later on, natural hair became a thing and is now seen as trendy. This made her popular with her Afro. This hair became her signature and she has been stopped several times by people and they have praised her hair.
Having a Big Butt
In the late 90s and the early 2000s, the female world was obsessed with having skinny bodies because they were seen as healthy and more beautiful. Those that didn’t fit into this category were seen as outsiders and got bullied for it.
This young lady at the time had a big backside and was often bullied. Now having one is the new trend. One would see celebrities and popular figures paying thousands of dollars for surgery just to get big butts. There are creams and skin care product for those that cannot afford surgeries. The same thing this lady got bullied for years back.
K-pop is now such a big deal among music lovers around the world. The influence of this genre keeps growing every day. Streaming numbers are a testament to that fact. K-pop has grown beyond Korean and beyond Asian at large. However, years ago, when it wasn’t a trend, a student in middle school got bullied for his taste in music.
He loved Asian music, especially Japanese rock and Korean pop. talked a lot about it, decorated his things with pictures. but he wasn’t Asian, so he got bullied for his love of the music. It is another trendy topic today that people got bullied for in the past.
A young person recalled his past and what it felt like to be poor while growing up. Jeans were part of his favorite choice of clothing. However, most of his jeans got worn out and they became torn.
The jeans had holes and tears but he still had to wear them. He got bullied for his choice of clothing and mentioned that it was especially a hard time. Today, people go to popular store just to get jeans with holes and lines. They also buy jeans that look worn out and torn. This guy was probably living in the future.
Having Big Lips
One common thing a lot of people got bullied for in the past was body physique and shape. Any part of the body that did not fall in the popular category was seen as abnormal. People with such body parts got bullied for their trouble.
One example was that of a lady that got bullied for having big lips. In the world of filters today, many people use lip filters to enlarge their lips when taking photos because it is seen as a trend. It is popular today compared to years back when it was seen as abnormal.
Being a Nerd
Spending one’s life in front of a computer screen was considered boring in the 80s. Programmers and D&D players at the time were seen as outsiders and were easily picked on. The same goes for students who loved building electronic gadgets and mechanical stuff.
They were seen as the weird ones in society. However, games, programming, web design, and other “nerd” stuff have become popular today. People would enroll their young kids in computer lessons. The same people that bullied others for loving computers back in the 80s. What a world!
Most of the things that people got bullied for during the 90s are now part of the trends of today’s world. Majority of those things fall under fashion choices. Anything seen as different or unpopular is met with ridicule.
A student in his first year of school loved flannels or plaid shirts. One can imagine the kind of ridicule that one would face as a first-year student with a different style. Later, flannels became a trend when Nirvana and Grunge blew up. The same style that was seen as unfashionable back then is now at the top of the fashion world.
Those who found interest in technology back in the 90s were seen as outsiders. With the popular “nerd” tag attached to their names. They were often bullied back then. One of such groups were the game players.
Those who loved games often got bullied for their love of fiction and game characters. The bullying takes a whole different level when the game lover is a girl. One girl mentioned that she was seen as an alien back in her school days for playing games. It is now a trend for many in today’s tech world.
‘Freckle face, freckle face, nah nah nahhh.’ That was the everyday taunt for a lady for many years. She had freckles and was seen as different from others. Walking around was especially difficult.
Fast forward to the present trends, freckles are now seen as fashionable. Some even draw on their freckles and make different kinds of design on it. Years ago, it was seen as a skin anomaly. Those who had freckles were seen as dirty. Some even considered them as sick. It is now embraced in today’s world.
Dyeing of Hair
There are many beautiful colors in the world. Some have developed the courage to use those different colors in style and fashion. The only negative part was that these ones were bullied for their courage and audacity to look different using different vibrant colors.
A young girl back in her school days loved dyeing her hair using different colors but her favorite color was pink. And she was teased for it. Now she is in grad school, colored hair is the new trend. Same thing people got bullied for a few years ago.
Wearing Cropped Jeans
Jeans as part of dressing for both male and female has experienced changes in terms of what is seen as fashion and what is not. Years ago, people loved it when the jeans were long and reached the toes or covered the top of one’s footwear.
Those who dared to look different were bullied into submission. This was the case with a lady that loved cropped jeans at a time when it was not popular. Taunts like “are you waiting for a flood” were passed around. However, people today treat cropped jeans like it’s the best thing after Santa.
Being a “Tomyboy”
For those that might be unfamiliar with the term, a “tomyboy” is a girl that loves to dress and act in a “man-like” way. This does not necessarily mean a change in sexual orientation, it’s just a change in dressing pattern and attitude. Girls that had this preference were bullied and called different names and stuff.
But we now live in a world where having a different orientation is now the new trend. Just another one of those things that became a trend after years of ridicule and abuse.
Men Wearing Earrings
Another classical example of people getting bullied for their different taste in fashion and looks. Sometimes people forget that one might have a reason for looking different. They just bully on.
This guy was always wearing earrings for his theater performance. Unknown to those around him, they bullied him for looking different and he had to endure their taunting. Today he lives in a world where it is seen as cool and trendy for men to wear earrings of different types. It is more common than he would have ever imagined. Such is the irony that is life.
Today one of the most common footwears is crocs. One would see crocs everywhere. Used with different types of dressing. A lot of people have praised the comfort it brings which is apparently why it is now such a trend. Years ago, this wasn’t the case.
Those who choose comfort over style back then were bullied for their choice. A guy narrated how he was bullied by friends and family members. Later he gave into the pressure and switched over to wearing slides. Not long after that, the wearing of crocs became a trend. Now he can safely and happily go back to wearing crocs as much as he wants.
Clothes have been used over the years not just as a means to cover the body, but also used to reveal body beauty and shapes. This is especially true for ladies. Most dresses are designed to fit the shape of the body and reveal edges and curves. Oversized shirts are more common for males.
So, it often attracts bullies to see a lady that is interested in wearing oversized clothes. Now people are talking about how oversized shirts are cool for ladies. Top celebrities have been sighted wearing this type of clothes. It is now seen as the latest evolution in the fashion world. The same thing people got bullied for years ago.
Metal music has been around for quite a while and it has been characterized by its loudness. In recent years, it hasn’t been seen as popular and acceptable. Some called it the devil music and claimed they did not understand what was being said.
A guy who was a fan of metal music felt alienated after series of bullying. Things have changed over the years. People are now willing to put on shirts of famous bands. The genre is now getting positive attention and is becoming a trend among songs lover around the world.
Eating low-calorie lunches in school was unpopular. The few ones who did it were doing so for nutritional reasons. A girl was around 8 years old when she decided to start dieting. She was bullied for trying to make changes to her health. Her lunch included fruits instead of cookies.
However, people today are more conscious of their weight and her classmates have been asking her for tips on how to diet. Bullied for years for having more concern about her health. Today, she is sought after for tips. Just goes to show that resilience is needed for one to stay put to one’s choice.
Having grey hair is a physical attribute that is seen among aged people. It is quite rare to find someone in their 20s with grey hair. However, factors like stress and genetic makeup could contribute to having grey hair very quickly.
Some have decided to ignore such facts. Young people with grey hair have often been bullied for their looks. Things have changed over the years and people are now embracing grey hair as something cool. Some would even pay money just to dye their hair so that they look grey.
Cut in Eyebrow
A guy, through a serious cut, had a scar that left a mark on his eyebrow. This scar looked like a line dividing the eyebrow. He explained that kids on the bus would tease him for looking a little bit different.
He also had a cleft chin and was also teased for this. Having a cleft chin is a trend in today’s world. He mentions that it is a bit annoying after years of bullying to find fashion models paying for surgery to have a cleft chin. People also deliberately cut slashes in their eyebrows as part of looking cool.
A young guy narrated his version of bullying. It was in kindergarten when his mom would make special meals for him. This meal was packed in bento boxes, they included rice, seaweed, tea egg, meat, and others. One thing was special about this lunch.
It was the type that needed a spoon and fork. It was different from the lunch that students brought to school back then; the handheld food types. He was bullied for being different and for his type of boxes. Today, his fellow workers would pay money just to buy those types of boxes.
There are many characters in comic books of different stories. Most of these comic books contained earthly heroes and their contribution to the world of fiction. Before it became a popular trend to read comics, those who showed interest in it were seen as outsiders and they were bullied for it.
This would explain why a young guy in his school days had a Spider-Man shirt but could not wear it for fear of getting bullied. Now people wear Thor shirts for cheerleading costumes. Many other comic characters have their outfits worn in public more regularly.
Eating Raw Carrot
Carrot is a very nutritious vegetable. It is often used in different recipes across various food types all over the world. Some cook the carrots till they’re soft while some steam it just a little bit. However, this guy in his school days loved eating carrots raw.
Fresh from harvest, washed, and sliced into sizes that one can bite. But he was teased for his trouble. He had to change things by getting one of his bullies to eat the raw carrot. He mentioned that after a while, eating raw carrots became a trend in the school. Now everyone is enjoying it.
To be a part of any extracurricular activities in school is one way to be in the spotlight. One of such is the school sports section. They are the popular ones in school and when it is popular, it is either for praise or for bullying.
For this 14-year-old girl, it is the latter. She was part of the runners in school, however, her sport wears, especially her trekkers were not made by any popular brand. She was bullied for years during her stay in school. Most people today wear sports shoes that do not have any brand marks on them.
Chess is a game of strategy and requires a level of ingenuity for one to understand and master the game. Those that enjoyed the game at a tender age when it was not yet popular were seen as weird.
The game was tagged boring by many and one would be called a geek if they show interest in the game. Chess as a game became more popular during the pandemic. All of a sudden, it is a cool thing for one to know how to play chess. On the bright side, those who have loved it in the past can easily teach the new comers a thing or two.
Natural Red Hair
Another item on the list of things people got bullied for was the color of hair. This is another classical example of bullying based on physical appearance. This was very common back then. One typical example was those that were bullied because they had red hair.
Those with red hair were called names and were made fun of among their peers. The trend today is to have colored hair, not just red, but other flashy colors as well. Those that have natural red hair are now seen as fashion icons and are complimented for it. As opposed to the ridicule and abuse they faced in the past.
Close to Mom and Dad
Young girls and boys back in middle school loved to appear big and mature. This means that anyone coming to school with their parents or anyone seen with their parents walking them down the school premises were bullied as mama’s girl or mama’s boy.
They faced bullying in school by mates. But today, it is now a cool thing to show just how close one is to their parents. People now make videos with songs showing their closeness to their parents. This is the new trend in today’s world.
There is more to movies than just entertainment, it is also a mode of social interaction. People often come together in groups to discuss their type of movies. Fortunately, there are different types and genres of movies.
One that became popular recently is anime, a Japanese movie genre. It is the new trend among movie lovers today. However, it has been around for a while and those who were fans of such movies before it became a trend were often bullied for their “weird” taste in music. It is another thing people got bullied for in the past.
