In all of high school I was picked on for my weight...not that I was the most over weight person in the world, but I had a little more weight on me than others. At the end of 11th grade the bullying became extreme, with the use of social media and cell phones I was an even bigger target then before. It went on so far that a girl sent a forward to everyone calling me a milk cow...I would have people messaging me calling me names, picking on me at school, and out side of school events. A whole cheer squad took a picture of them "milking" this girl and they posted it online with my name saying it was for me. The thing is I never told anyone but my parents who tried their best to do something about it. However, like most cases, nothing was ever done about it. After high school I kept to myself and stuck up for kids who went through the same thing as me, and tried to be a good example to my little brother and my cousins. Life gets better after high school, you realize the only people who are important are your family and the ones who stick up for you and are there by your side. Yes, there are still bullies, but they are way easier to avoid and you don't have to deal with them like you did in school. My advice for younger kids is to stick up for yourself, but don't go on their level. Be confident in yourself because that's the way God made you, and you are perfect in his image. Also, if you ever even have thoughts of harming yourself, talk to someone...whether it be a parent, teacher, or a friend, talk to them. Don't do something permanent for something that will end in time!
