Well. Lets say you're yoyoing at a public venue, most likely school. Im sure this has happened to everyone. Some jerk says these quotes for example:
“You have no life”
“Why are you playing with a kids toy? You Los3r”
“You have way to much time on your hands. Get a lif3”
“Your gay/ yoyos are gay”
I want to write this to say that you shouldn't let judgmental people take you down. People that do this are just insecure bullies who have nothing better to do then pick on people that have found something in life that gives them true joy. Honestly, if you have a """""friend"""""" who says these kind of things to you, they are not your friend. A true friend doesnt judge anothers hobby, no matter how strange.
Dont let this get to you, and throw on. Shove your yoyoing in their face. Say “I am secure, and do something i enjoy instead of being a poser”. Many people on here are high schoolers and middle schools, where these statements normally occur. We have all been called names and such from yoyoing at least ONCE. We understand. The cruel statement mean nothing. They are just screaming “I have nothing better to do then pick on a person with an acual hobby!”
You are not alone, and i dare speak for the yoyo community as a whole, but it seems like everyone ive encountered are very helpful and understanding. I was embraced with generousity when i came to yoyoexpert! A sizeable amount of my yoyo collection is derived from the generous deeds of others. Special thanks to jwil45 and totalartist.
So dont quit yoyoing just to look cool in front of the popular people. Be yourself, and yoyo on!
