I'm in high school. I'm the valedictorian of my class and the guy who has done the most shit for the past 4 years. I have the highest SAT scores in my school's history. I kept it pretty much to myself until the end of junior year when I started becoming more social and outgoing. I have also gotten in shape, and my life changed dramatically after TRP.
However, ever since that happened, my life has been nothing but a constant stream of shit tests. It's not bullying, but it's definitely getting on my nerves. Women do nothing but shit test me in my face, making negative comments on everything from my appearance to my body. When I'm not around, however, I have been told that the ones who shit test me go on to say how attractive I am. I have even heard a few of them whispering how "I'm so hard to get" and how they wish to be with me. It's mind boggling to be honest. The same thing applies when it comes to my male friends. They all shit test me in a very disrespectful way.
I always try to maintain frame. I just smile or laugh it off when someone makes such comments. I don't respond or make comments about them in retaliation. However, it's gotten to a point where I just can't fucking take it anymore. It's so annoying that I have to deal with this to maintain my frame. The problem is all those who shit test me don't have strong frames themselves. When I tease any of them, they would act very offended and would lose every single bit of frame they have. It's very funny and disgusting to watch at the same time.
It's not that I really care about shit tests. It's just that I believe I deserve to be treated with more respect.
What should I do? Should I stop smiling or laughing it off when someone shit tests me and just keep a straight face? Should I break frame and insult them back? How can I escape this crabs in a bucket cycle? I'm sick of it.
