In September of 2012 I said that my freshman year was going to be the best year of high school. For a couple of months it was because I was really popular at school. But 2013 turned that happiness around. People that I thought were my friends talked about me behind my back and spread rumors about me. I thought I could trust some people , but in the end I was manipulated making my life even worse. Everyone called me a slut , whore, bitch , everything you could possibly thing of. I ignored their words at first because its just talk right? Every word they said just went in one ear and out the other, but after a while I couldn't hold my emotions in anymore. I was broken down because I knew no one would be on my side. People now had this image that I was weak, and vunerable, so they attacked me even more. One day in science , a girl came up to me and said "You know what Nadyah , you are absolutely beautiful , and whatever these people are saying is b.s! You cant let them get you down , you are too pretty for all of this. Just put a smile on your face and they will leave you alone." I will never forget that day because this was someone who I didn't even know and she cared so much about me. We soon became friends and she stuck up for me whenever someone even mentioned my name. Without her I would have never gotten the help I needed, and probably would have ended it all. So I would say to anyone reading this ... please don't be a bystander , if you see someone upset , try to comfort them because who knows , you could be saving someones life.
