Comments

Comments like:

“That is what you are wearing?”

And

“What are you selling?”

Make a self-conscious person, 

Always wondering if their outfits are appropriate

 

Comments like:

“You talk too much,”

And 

“You can never be quiet, can you?”

Make a quiet person, 

Never saying what they are thinking 

 

Comments like:

“Why are you stressed, at your age I was never stressed”

And 

“You are fine, you should not be crying,”  

Make a numb person, 

Always repressing their emotions so no one sees them

 

Comments like:

“What does it matter, everyone graduates high school,”

And 

“A 91? You could have gotten a 100,”

Makes a perfectionist, 

Never believing that what they create is good enough. 

 

Now imagine if all of these comments, 

were to be said to one person. 

That would make a very

nervous, shy, apathetic, overachieving person. 

Hi, my name is Arletth Fraga, who are you?
