i remember getting bullied in the 5th and 6th grade, i went through puberty way before anyother girls did. once we had a new student and she saw that i was already developing, she decided to get everyone against me. it first started with me stuffing so it looked like was going through puberty and then it would lead to them trying to take off my shirt or take of my bra. i was scared and didnt know how to approach this, so i just took the harrasment. she then decided that bothering me about that was too boring, she moved on to finding every wrong thing about me, my nose, my hips, my face, my hair. they used to throw rocks and tortillas at me just because of my last name Portillo. i was so tired of the bullying that i became the bully... but i realized that no matter what i did, they would always try to beat me with their words, and i was not one of them how could i scoop down to their level.... i never spoke to anyone during this time, at home i would act like nothing was going on at school. but then a girl would follow me home and tell me so many bad words, and call me fat and just wouldnt leave me alone. my mom never realized anything... i moved to colorado thankfully i thought i had escaped it all but once i got here someone in my class called me "UGLY" those words stuck to me like glue, i didnt make any friends fast, i had one friend in my math class but i still felt very alone, people kept calling me a whole lot of mean words and i was tired of it i didnt want it to be like elementary all over again so i decided to try and take my life away,, as i was doing that i received a text from that one guy in math class. he started talking to me and i told him everything. he saved my life, he might not know it but if it wasnt for him i would have killed myself that moment. hes was my friend, he still is and he will always be, because he saved me from making the worst mistake of my life. he made me realize that i am beautiful, inside and out and im not alone i will never be alone. nobody is alone, everyone has a hero in their life. even if you might not know it yet.
