I first started getting bullied in 5th grade. I was different, i was weird, and i had really bad acne. The thing that still sticks with me to this day is a boy told me he could play connect the dots on my forehead. It really hurt me. My friends tried to help, like if they made fun of something I was reading, Ally would read it right in front if them. In 6th grade it got worse. They made fun of everything about me. I became so insecure that my 7th and 8th grade years I didn't talk to anyone except a few friends. They called me the school reject. My friends were outraged, but i believed it as if it was the truth. Now, after just completing my 9th grade year, I've learned it was. I'm still extremely insecure and defensive, but I'm getting better. I've only had a couple problems with a girl spreading mean rumors about me. If people say stuff long enough, you start to believe it. I've learned that just because they say it repeatedly, doesn't mean it's true.
