I was and have always been way too concerned about what people thought of me. After experiencing bullying at a harsh degree, I conformed against my nature into someone people wanted me to be versus who I truly was inside. I did not begin to re-discover who I truly was inside until well into my adult years. I just wanted to fit in and be accepted. Little did I realize that what people think of you actually DOES NOT MATTER in the long run. Being true to yourself, regardless of opposition is the only freedom I have ever found. I was always worried about the popular kids liking me, do any girls like me, are my clothes/shoes cool, is my car new enough, etc. If I had support to be myself and stand up to bullies that were against it, I would have discovered my TRUE self long ago. Stand together and fight back, bullies are the weakest people of us all! BE YOU!!!!
