Hello. My name is Jamee and I am 20 years old. When I was in middle school I went to a private school. The people at this school were richer than I was, had nicer things, were what they considered better looking than me, and because I was the new kid.....and because I was different I was rejected. I moved to Florida when I was 11 and in the 6th grade. I left my family, my friends and everything I've ever known behind, and the place I went to I wasn't accepted in. My little sister who was 8 years old at the time and in the 3rd grade was being bullied as well. The kids in her class made a game called "Alyssa cooties" which meant if Alyssa as much looked at you, you had cooties and had to spread them to someone else. She hated herself. She had no one but me.
High school, at least I thought, was going to be different. Yet again, however, freshman year this one girl chose me as her subject of torture. I'd cry everyday. I told my parents, my teachers, and I just felt like no one wanted to help me. I had this girl making other people come up to me and ask me why I was such a bitch. It was literally the worst feeling. People kept saying, "Oh she's just jealous of you!" All I could think was why would anyone be jealous of someone like me?
I'm 20 years old working on my second college degree, I have a wonderful boyfriend of over a year now and friends that love me for exactly the person that I am. I have a part time job that I'm very successful at and life is good! I had what some people would consider support from my family and the "friends" I did have. I have to say though, I got through it by myself. I can't imagine how people with stories that are much worse than mine make it everyday. I just want to say that I love you. EVERY SINGLE PERSON DESERVES A CHANCE! You....you...deserve a chance and I respect and value you.
Thanks for reading.
