Overcompensation in the Big, Bad World

Last week, I was labelled as kontrabida when one of my friends slash ex-colleague sent a message in our group chat about one of our friends who’s presently mending a fucking broken heart. It was sent along the lines of “Kawawa naman sya, she can’t get over sa guy.” I rolled my eyes.

And there I was in my room, curled under the comfort of my blanket and clutching my phone, sent a reply saying “Meh. Fuck that. To be honest, I feel for her, but discounting the fact that she’s my friend and putting myself to be someone from the outside looking in, I just felt like it’s her karma.”

That comment surely raised most of their eyebrows but hell I care, I can’t tolerate the wet noodle image that she’s flashing to everyone. Along those lines, I made a remark that she’s overcompensating for her break-up. Picture this: The guy loved her when she was 80 kg, do you think he will come back into her arms just because she’s 20 kg lighter? I said no. They said I was mean, and they missed my sarcasm there.

And I was like bitching about overcompensation and made sure that my statements were clear when God forbid, the people on the other side of the phone screen does not even the know what the fucking overcompensation that I was talking about. One friend even commented na “ay akala ko overcompensation na nasobrahan sa bayad!” I rolled my eyes. Fuck yeah, nakakahawa ang kabobohan ng iba. Mag-ingat. Kayo ba, alam nyo ba ang overcompensati...
