Alright so I have been pondering hard on whether I should be posting this but I decided that I need. So I had gone for Endgame with my friends and as we came out of the movie theatre towards the food court, we were stopped by a bunch of people asking us for some money for drugs. A very small amount but we all refused. Eventually this escaped some threatening, people started to give in to their demands. They came to me and asked me how much I was willing to give, I said nothing at all and eventually they swore at me and threw some verbal assaults and this is where I caved in and gave them around 3 bucks. I was visibly pissed and then when he had the money he needed, he comes asking for high-fis and I refused. He says “either my hand meets your hand or my hand meets your face” and I have never felt more powerless at any instant. My ego was bruised badly and I took it to heart. I gave him a high-fy like I had no choice. Though everyone around me couldn't do nothing, I felt even worse. It's been two days and it hasn’t been any better. I told my parents and they gave me splendid advice and I was fine for a day but my feelings of inferiority and powerlessness are springing back up. I hate having failed to establish my boundaries and for the fact that I was scared at that instant. I could have threatened at least and stood my ground but I didn’t at that moment, I feel like I froze up in fear and every incident where I’ve been dominated and controlled has added up and I’m feeling terribly shit at this point. I hate being bullied around and losing power in situations like this where injutice prevails. I hate the social hierarchy. I hate people who have emotional holes in their life and attack others to compensate for their insecurities. I haven’t been able to think about anything and this is the only thing running through my mind. Please help!
