1. For a large portion of your life you probably didn't even realise you were annoying.

Because all kids are annoying and lack the self-awareness to know this.

Because all kids are annoying and lack the self-awareness to know this.

2. But then it started to dawn on you... perhaps your presence isn't universally enjoyed by all members of society at all times?

MTV

3. The signs are small. It could be the passive-aggressive side-eye you get.

Paramount Pictures

4. Or the short and snappy answers.

5. But worst of all is being shushed.

CBS

Those people, however, are their own breed of annoying.

6. All these behaviours either make you feel shit about yourself...

ABC Family

7. ...and make you want to change everything about your personality...

8. ...or they make you want to be FIGHTY and even more annoying.

Paramount Pictures

9. But that's only if you actually know what it is that makes you so annoying.

10. Like maybe you have no control over your voice.

Cartoon Network

11. Or you're literally always fidgeting.

Nickelodeon

12. Or maybe you have a really weird laugh.

Walt Disney Productions

13. But sometimes people seem to have an adverse reaction to you for no reason.

Bravo

And that's OK — they're entitled to feel that way.

14. And you've definitely had moments when someone inexplicably irritated you too.

E! Entertainment Television

It could be something as small as the way they walk.

15. But knowing that you're annoying makes you so much more conscientious.

CMT

You're not always aware that you're fidgeting but you damn well try to not do it.

16. And it's made you very good at taking criticism.

Well, sometimes. Most of the time.

17. In fact, you probably appreciate the criticism.

You'd much rather people just say what it is about you that's annoying them so you can change it, instead of being passive-aggressive and stewing in their own annoyance.

18. But you've also realised that if you annoy someone that much, you'll probably never get on that well anyway.

Bravo

19. And you don't really need people in your life that make you feel like a burden or a nuisance.

20. Because someone out there won't mind how you bounce off the walls when you get excited or snort when you laugh.

Nickelodeon

21. If they can't handle you at your most irritating, then they don't deserve you at your most tolerable.
