Was it wrong to stand up for myself?

I was at rehearsal for a play I was recently in and I was backstage with about 6 other people. We are never supposed to talk backstage, but everyone does a little. So we were whispering a little bit and I guess you could hear it on stage. One of my classmates comes backstage screaming and swearing at us all to shut up.Evan though she is always talking backstage, so I said that to her and she freaked out and started crying. Then I started crying because this girl (Terry) is constantely talking about me and everyone else, then pretends to be our friend. So our teachers talked to us and of course Terry just said that she asked everyone to be quiet, but I told my teacher the real truth (her swearing my standing up for myself.) Both of the teachers acted like they weren't taking sides, but once Terry left they told me that they were proud of me for standing up for myself. Do you think it was the right thing to do? I really need point of views please!!!!

You did the right thing and you should not feel bad for it. If the person was dumb enough to scream at you when you are only whispering thy do deserve it. Always take up for yourself.

Thanks. But then when our teachers tried to bring us together to get the story at first neither of us said anything. Then she said that she was dealing with something at home...which she isn't because our parents are friends so I would know.So then she gets pity and I just look like a jerk.

Don't worry things will turn out ok in the end. No matter how good of a liar somebody is the truth will always come out. And show them you are the bigger person and just be nice to her. If you want to get on her nerves do that it works a lot better than trying to get revenge any day.

Thanks for the advice. My original plan was to be nice to her, but once again she talks about me then pretends to be my friend and I'm sick of just putting on a smile and pretending I don't know what's really going on.

Don't worry. I don't know if you are a Christian or not, but there is a verse that says be sure your sins will find you out. That means that even if the teachers didn't see it God saw t and he knows you did the right thing. If it really bothers you try and pray about it.

well kinda i mean like she would be good for a school that went to maybe 5th or 6th grade but she is like one of those really annoyingly cheerful people who you know isnt actually that cheerful! lol...and there is this kid in my class that has never done any of his work so she decided that she was gonna have him do his homework in her office with her everyday after school. Well my teacher told him to write down his assignments a few minutes later she asked him if he did and he said yes. then when he went to the principals office he told her that he didnt have any homework. so the principal yelled at our teacher for it because he didnt get his homework done! now does that make any sense to you?!?lol sorry kinda freaked out there but she annoyes me so much! haha

No it does not!!! Our principal is very laid back and nice. But he will take care of something if he needs to. But he is so nice.
