Hi, I'm Colin, a junior in high school. From the time I was in the seventh grade, I have been called "emo". I am actually still called "emo". When it first started, I just brushed it off as no big deal. It eventually got bigger. People would tell me to go kill myself, and go slit my wrists. I started taking offence to it. I began getting angry whenever people would tell me these things. They would laugh and say "Oh look, Colin's gonna go home and kill himself now." Eventually, I became one of the "emo" kids. I started dressing in all black, painting my nails black, and wearing eyeliner. It took a little while before I actually started cutting myself. I would have to hide it from my parents and my friends, because I thought that maybe they would start laughing at me as well. I found great comfort by listening to my favorite bands Black Veil Brides, and Avenged Sevenfold. Andy Biersack (singer of Black Veil Brides) would give me hope for a better tomorrow. While Matt Shadows (singer for Avenged Sevenfold) would help me get my aggression out. I still cut from time to time, but not as much as I used to. I am proud to say, that I am a very proud member of the anti-bullying campaign in my high school, and try my best to stop any bullying that I witness. That is my bullying story, thank you for reading.
