When I was in middle school, I started to develop acne. As a young girl we all know that this isn't the most attractive trait to have. It started when I was in 7th grade. I went to a dance with one of my friends and when this kid wanted to dance with me, I was in disbelief. I felt so pretty. About a week later, I found out that I would be attending this school, and when I saw this kid, he whispered to one of his friends that I looked better when the lights were off. I was mortified. Things seemed okay, and then when I got to high school things just got worse. I was a freshmen and was humiliated weekly. I was never the girl that slept around, I tried out for the dance team and basketball team and I never made it. My acne was still pretty bad as well. I got awful rumors spread about me, never got invited anywhere, and I was constantly looking for acceptance. When my acne started to disappear around my junior year, I was already known as the ugly girl, but all the guys started to talk to me. I would never give it up, but the guys would still call me a slut and say that I was easy. I thought my acne was the problem, but apparently all my problems were just beginning. I graduated from high school in 2008 and I was the happiest girl in the world. I grabbed my diploma and never looked back. Inside my constant bullying was just beginning to wreak havoc on my life. I started to date around, got into a ton of trouble, went through awful abusive boyfriends both mentally and physically. I was told my one guy that I needed to look more like Katy perry. I was also pushed and shoved out of one of my boyfriends trucks and he acted like he was going to run me over. Up until about three years ago, I suffered internally every single day. I wouldn't wish being bullied on my worst enemy. I was always the nice girl and that was my biggest problem. I am happier today, but I will never forget how every one of these guys and girls treated me. I have a husband now, and am back in college and I am still trying to forget High school and all the turmoil that came with it.
