There are many forms of bullying, physical, online, or just teasing right to their face. I tease people, but in a playful way, such as family and close friends that I know won’t take it personally. Today I’m going to blog about a time I teased someone and they didn’t take it personally but they almost did. Luckily I explained fast enough so she knew I was joking. But that got me thinking, what if they did? This is a friend that takes things personally and she doesn’t really think things are jokes.
One thing that I know I have to watch when I tease someone is that I don’t cross the line. I have to make sure they know I’m joking. I've seen many people cross the line and I don’t want to do that because sometimes people cry.
Another thing I need to watch is that I don’t tease someone so bad that others look at me as a bully. Teasing is a form of bullying as I said at the beginning. Teasing can spread around and people may see you or the person being teased in a different way. Usually that way is never good.
The last thing I have to do to prevent my teasing to be taken seriously is immediately say that I’m joking. If I hadn't said I was joking then she could have taken it seriously and it could have hurt her feelings.
In conclusion make sure you don’t cross the line when teasing. Especially with your friends because you don’t want to lose them. These are some tips for you when you tease. I hope it was helpful! Bye!
