How do you feel when someone teases you?
Honestly it depends on the circumstances, who is doing the teasing, how they sound when they’re doing it, and how I feel at the moment. I’m an only child, so I didn’t grow up being teased by someone who loved me — I was only teased by the other kids in school and they were right mean bastards. So for the longest time I didn’t know teasing was done by nice people who liked you, I thought teasing was only done by assholes. It was probably not until my late twenties that I became OK with being teased *if* it was someone I knew liked me, if I could tell they were being funny, and if I wasn’t feeling vulnerable about something already. I always try to take it in stride, whether I think it’s funny or not (probably mental training from not wanting the other kids at school to see that my feelings were hurt).
