Growing up is and will always be a way of life. but for me it seemed like countless days that led to nothing. In my younger years I found it hard to connect with others. Kindergarten is when it all started to unfold and become clear. That I was no where near like anyone else. As I got into my middle school years being teased was at the top of everyones to do list, except mine. I was ridiculed on how i acted and who i hung out with or how i dressed. When asked about it at home, and explaining my day, i got the " Well dont let it bother you" or " you egg them on" from my parents. it did not seem like they really cared. So about 6th grade I lost my self confidence and my own respect for my self because I was just the girl that everyone thought it would be funny to make fun of. Needless to say i made it through middle school and high school while still being bullied. I look back now and think that was the worst part of my life the I ended taking control of. I have now a junior in college and loving life and my friends. I am still faced with diversity or name calling or whatever else people think is funny but being 21 i could really care a less.
