Smartest Girl In Class Mocked For Dumb Questions, Turns Out She Did It For Socially Anxious Friend

When they learned the truth, they wrote: "And I was just so touched??? Idk but it really changed the way I looked at people??" 

It's really hard to come across a good friend because now all everyone cares about is themselves. However, this does not mean that good friends don't exist. There are people who will love you unconditionally and stand up for you. I, for one, strongly believe that even the most horrible person has at least one friend they can call their own. Social anxiety can be crippling sometimes and people do need someone else's help or a hand to hold on to for them to face the world. A person on Tumblr shared a heartwarming and wholesome story about one socially anxious girl who had trouble speaking up in the classroom. But, she was really lucky to have a friend that always had her back. 



 

 

They wrote: "I had this girl in my class and she was considered to be really dumb. She’d ask a ton of doubts and questions in class, which everybody would consider to be “stupid" and “silly” and even the teachers would often taunt her but she’d never stop asking. But the thing was that she’d almost always top the class examinations and everyone was like???? They all thought she was cheating and stuff and obviously, even the teachers were very biased because she wasn’t so ‘smart’ in class, and she was regularly accused of cheating."



 

 

People are really quick to jump to conclusions, aren't they?  "But nobody could prove that she was actually cheating but the whole class and teachers totally believed that she did. I’m pretty socially awkward so I never really talked to her, but she was leaving school this year and I was genuinely curious about how she was so good during exams and how she didn’t let everyone’s remarks affect her. She always used to sit and hang out with only one girl."



 

 

"Once, she told me that that friend of hers was severely socially anxious and she’d lag in studies because she couldn’t bring herself to ask doubts in class or ask for help from others. So they had this system where during lectures her friend would write down any question she had, and she would ask them for her. And I was just so touched??? Idk but it really changed the way I looked at people??" 



 

 

"This girl endured taunts and jeers and borderline bullying for being “stupid” when she was actually really smart and could easily have refused to ask such doubts for her friend but she did?? And brushed off everything others would throw at her for her friend?? I was just, idk it just really changed me in some way." Sometimes we are quick to judge people and put labels on them, but not always do we try and find the real reason behind it.
