"Everyone does that"
It annoys me so much when I give reasons for doing silly clumsy mistakes or things I feel is right that others don't agree with and the person telling me off or questioning me goes "yes everyone does that." Well to be completely frank people may deal with such situations better than me and are more emotionally stable and strategic so there's no right to say I mustn't make exceptions for myself and it's inexcusable. Like when Im feeling grumpy and angry and I snap and argue and shout at people and slam/throw things and I say I go by how I feel as a teenager and the person telling me off goes everyone goes by how they feel and have hormones not just teenagers. This means I act how I feel as a teenager especially to those who are mean and strict to me first or if the person is older their times were a lot different. Or when I scream dramatically when I get my fingers stuck in something or bang my head and they say everyone is sensitive to pain and don't react that way. Well maybe some people are physically and mentally stronger than me and I don't deserve to be fussed at for that, super sensitive is how I am! Also when I don't do cleaning up and I say I'm busy and the person says everyone's busy. And with daydreaming saying everyone finds what's in their heads more fun so I can't use that as a reason to be accidental and unintentionally ignorant and develop silly habits. Grrhhh! Why can't people just accept this is how it is and get into their heads that people cope and feel different, there's no "general" or "majority"?!! Nobody else even gets told off for these things only me so no point in saying everyone does so and so is there? I'm tired of being the one told off simply cuz it's family restrictions or I'm the most "gormless" and tend to be clumsy most. Vice versa at school when my classmates complain that I don't get in trouble for forgetting to bring books yet they do when they all know how sensitive I am and being forgetful was clearly unintentional, or at home when we're told to eat food we don't like and my siblings moan that it's ok if I don't eat it. This is particularly the case with parents and teachers and classmates and even friends occasionally. It's harder to deal with when I have pretty personal reasons for making exceptions for myself that I cannot explain as the person telling me off will say it's nonsensical and petty and just won't understand and listen.
Another plus on planning to live alone later on: no need to worry the harms of making exceptions at least at home. No one has the right to be call me self-conceited for doing so, I feel that they're the ones being that way for deliberately missing that people have varied feelings and coping techniques to have a reason to tell me off. How can I focus on what matters to me and distract myself when people keep saying things that I hate hearing and are totally hurtfu and deliberately and personally misunderstanding of me???!!!
