Elementary through senior year of high school I was bullied. Not physically but mental and emotionally. I was put down, called names, and even threatened. I was bullied because I was who I was. I was bullied because I stood up for those who didn't have the strength to stand up for themselves. senior year of high school was when I had enough. I took it passed the school. However it got worse and nothing really helped. Going to court didn't really help. I missed 70% of my senior year. And graduation was suposed to the best day of my life but it ended up being a bad memory because everyone's stood up and cheered for the bully because they felt like he was the victim. I turned out to be the girl the whole town didn't want to be around because I stood up to those cheerleaders, football stars and wrestlers. People who I grew up with wouldn't even look at me. I developed bad anxiety, flashbacks and depression. Here I am today a college student going to school to become a fire fighter/EMT, I am now moved out and on my own. I made the choice to leave the town that put me through misery. Yes, I still see those people every once in a while but I keep my head up and smile as big as I can because I am strong.
