Katie’s friends were also fluent in one of the languages she spoke, which left Sarah feeling left out of their conversations. One day, Sarah saw that Katie had a new Portuguese coursebook on her desk, and she couldn’t help but express her frustration.

Sarah said, “I realized that I was being unfair to Katie. Just because she loves languages doesn’t mean she’s boring. I should have tried harder to find common ground with her.”

The Internet Responded

One person commented, “OP also sounds immature. Telling people language isn’t a personality trait and that they are boring is simply obnoxious and she’s old enough to know better. Jealousy is not a personality either.”

This commenter responded with, “OP needs to make her own friends, and deal with her insecurities. It’s fine to be a bit jealous of someone with mad language skills, but don’t hate on her for it!! Plus, learn to watch movies with subtitles. That might help you build tolerance for hearing other languages “all the time”.”

This last person posted with this opinion, “‘I tried to see what she was watching”, “I tried to listen to what she was listening to”, “I can’t jump into a conversation she’s having with her friends because it’s not in English.” Like, do you want to be friends or stalk her…?”
