Would this be helping one see the other side or would this be victim-blaming?

*You were constantly bullied in school because you always talked to yourself*

*People are saying mean things to you because you're unfriendly*


Another example: *He's telling others that you [misbehavior or annoying habit; eg staring, lying, cheating, trapping foot, etc.] because you're bothering him!*

Update 2:

"trapping" should've been TAPPING

    Victim blaming.

    Need more details. Not just a fortune cookie read of what's on the surface.

    Victim blaming in first, other side in second.

      "He's telling others that you [stare, lie, cheat, or tap your foot] because you're bothering him" is helping the person who's complaining about the gossiper see the other side? Even if the complainer has refrained from doing that undesirable action or at least has tried to?

    It probably helps someone to understand what people consider socially acceptable because that's just the society we live in, but also that you love their true self still

      Protecting whose feelings? The complainer or the accused/perpetrator?
