"You're stupid. Just kidding!"

Written by Erin LaVaux

Real Friends Aren't Mean

Jokes shouldn't hurt. When someone constantly puts you (or another) down and then answers your requests to stop with, "I'm just kidding," "it's just a joke, wow," "don't be such a baby," "lighten up" or similar. You need to stand up for yourself or the other person. Jokes shouldn't hurt. Sometimes all it takes is telling the other person it's not acceptable and they need to stop.

Real friends are not mean.
