Throughout my time in the NYC public school system being bullied or beig a bully was the accepted norm. For the most part my peers were about the same from grade school up until high school. I remember dealing with bullying on a simple level but I put a end to it by being an aggressor. I began phases of bullying. One point that really made me realize it was wrong was a time I pushed a kids face into the fall in jhs. I've never made a person cry before, let alone became physical. It was a joke/bully move that went wrong. I felt horrible afterwards. Absolutely disgusted with what I had done I reached out to anyone who may have had his number and apologized numerous times. It was at that point I knew that was the last straw and I did not want to be this way. That is the day I took a stand and vowed never to bully again. I became more prone to bullying since I strayed away from the norm but I was happy and content with who I wanted to become and turned my guilt into driving force against bullying.
