If a boy is sick of being taken for a chump because he is respectful and has manners should he completely change his ways?
No you shouldn't, and good for you! Just stand up for yourself
and don't let anyone mess with you and get the best of you. I'm
sure there's ways out there to prevent jerks from doing this
without having to compromise your respect and manners. AND--believe
it or not, there are more people in the world to associate with!
You will be valued by someone you value..keep looking. On the
otherhand, if there is something good about these people, notice
it. Even if you choose to not hang out with them, your noticing the
good, reinforces what's good in you.
