When I was in the 6th grade people at school would pick on me and call me ugly, fat, geek, metal mouth (I had braces at the time) and a whole lot more. I was too scared to tell anyone what was happening cause I thought the bullies would get bored and stop. My friends found out a year after it all started and then they never left my side. But they couldn't be on the bus with me and my bullies kept it up. At the end of the 8th grade they were still hurting me. On the last day, I finally found some courage and stood up for myself. That summer I dreaded going back. I was afraid that they would start bullying me again. But they never did. they didn't even recognize me. I looked better, dressed differently, and acted different. apparently I looked more like a girl. the guys would flirt with me and try to get me to date them. I made more friends and stopped letting people walk all over me. I am now a junior in high school and I'm not afraid of going to school anymore. I still get bullied by some people but I don't let their words get to me.
