I am grateful that i have never been subjected to PHYISICAL bullying and pray for the kids who are!...but MENTAL and EMOTIONAL bullying is just as bad. I remmeber all through elementry school up till about 8th grade i was bullied. A few people would constantly call a nerd and a geek just cuz i tried reall hard in school and did well. I wore glasses in 3r grade till now. i am a Junior in highschool soon to be a senior next year and wear contacts as well now to school. I couldnt even hold my friends hand in elementry school without being called a lesbian. Just because you hold the same sexes hand or even if you have a gay friend does not make you gay.I have Bi-Sexual,gay and lesbian friends and love them to peices!! It shouldnt matter who we hang out with because we are all peeple and should be treated that way NOT like some kind of wild animal. I have been called fat and loser. I now for a fact i am not fat but do sometimes feel like i am a loser and like i am worthless because all through school the people around me had something special about them but i never did. In the 7th grade i was scared of being called names and would just hang out in the library witha few other people and did this till he middle of 8th grade. When i got to highschool i came to resolution that i would just eed to wait it out and be strong. i couldnt let this peoples words hurt me...but they still did. I tried so hard not to let it show. I fnally moved to another town with my twin sister and grandma when she lost her house. I am so grateful and LOVE my mom for letting me move in with my grandma and have the oppratunity to go t oa different school. I have made so many amazing friends here that love and support me and i have not forgotten my few TRUE friends back where i grew up. They are the ones who helped me get through it all. there are kids out there who have no one and that makes it harder for them to stay strong because a person can only take so much heartache throughout there life before they decide to give up. We need to reach out to those people and let them know they are NOT alone and there are people who CARE for them. I will stay strong and helps others do the same!
