People often wonder what one would have done in situations in the past had they known then what they know now. Other times you get to experience a similar situation years later and you recognize its the same thorn in your side from years ago in different packaging.
I recall being teased by the "cool" boys in summer camp. I found it upsetting and since I was on the shy side they managed to irritate me immensely without much backlash from me. Flash forward years later there are single men who think they are Mr. Cool who like teasing me. This time around I don't let them get away with it. Its a bit sad though. When I was younger I thought they were cool and now I realize that they really were not as mean as I thought they were they were just immature. Now I realize how immature they still are and I have little patience for those types. I guess things can change. I am no longer the victim.
