There is one girl who is extremely snotty and rude, as only the French can be, to me and to her French friends. But while I am very sensitive to it, the French people barely seem to notice. I know that if I said something in public about it, they wouldn't take my side but hers. It would be like "Who are you, American, to criticize our countrywoman?" That is the kind of nuance I'm talking about.
I have to be more patient, more forgiving, more humble than all of them, to remain in the shadows, to know my proper place. They can attack each other but I can't say anything. It's actually quite profitable for the soul, as you might expect. Perhaps if I pass the test, they will truly accept me one day!
