I was bullied all through elementary and middle school. My bullies would tell lies to get me in serious trouble, corner me in the bathroom or after school and punch me. They told other kids not to speak to me or play with me during recess. Some of the lies became so serious that I can't even speak about them here. I had no one to play with even after school. I was made fun of for my weight. No one would date me or take me to any school dances. I was also considered dumb. However, as an adult I moved to Chicago by myself and became a Chicago police officer. On top of working full time I received my masters in police psychology and I'm starting my internship for my doctorate in psychology. Next July i will graduate with my Psy.D and then I will sit for my license to become a clinical psychologist and work with police officers. I'm telling you this because as hard as it was and as much as I disliked my childhood I never stopped believing in myself and I worked very hard. Life does change and you become and are the master of your domine. So always try to do the right thing, be kind to others but most importantly be good to yourself and stand up for what's right even if your scared!! We all need someone to talk to at points in our life and it takes courage to ask for help or speak to someone when we are depressed or being bullied
