As a kid, I was insanely skinny in order to be in a modeling class. Only 37 lbs. at ages 7-9. I was called super skinny, twig boned, etc. So I ate and ate and ate...and did I mention I ate? Well I did and became 124 lbs. by sixth grade, I was 11.... So the jokes went around about how I was a donut, a "garbage disposal", and a lot worse... I'm a blonde, so accordingly it was only a matter of time until I was considered the "dumb" one of my classes, especially when I hit middle school. From 1st-8th grade I was a loner. I had no friends and didn't know how to make them. I was afraid of the words...and the words made me scared of myself...I started self-harming at the age of 10 and didn't stop until 13. Nobody knows my story. I'm a junior in high-school now. And am actually really happy with what's happened in my life throughout high-school. Yeah there's always going to be drama, but I mean you can't exactly avoid it. I finally found that sense of belonging everyone was talking about. I'm living a successful high-school career. 4.3 GPA, honors and AP classes, a close circle of friends, a boyfriend I've been with over a year, and scars fading. Mentally the scars will always be there, but without the scars, I wouldn't have ever had the motivation to do better. I always thought I was worthless and should end my life. But I stopped and thought about anybody who might have been affected, and family was always in the back of my mind. So if any of you are trying to give up. Believe me when I say it's not even close to worth it. I'm proof, that bullying can make you stronger.
