I've been bullied ever since I can REMEBER. By my own family , and classmates. It all started when my hair grew long. In Elemantry , I grew my hair long, my parents didn't take me to cut. So as time went by I always let my hair down. One time my father started calling me "Witch" because of my hair. He later made more jokes. Whenever we were going to go out , he would be say I didn't need to go in the car....that I could have just taken my broomstick. Late on my mother started calling me "Witch" too. And making jokes. Later on my siblings started it too. I asked my mother if she can cut it and she did. Then took me to the hair salon to layer it out. Years later.. I started to eat alot.. I obviously got Fat. my parents called me "Fat , Ugly" the told me no one ever want to be with me because I was fat. At school people called me Fat,too. They would look at me in disgust. Soon my cousin passed away. One of my cousins that actually talked to me, didn't judge people by how they looked, he was really nice to me. When I found out he died I was heartbroken. I cried once at school in the playground because of his death. Some people asked what was wring with me. Other were taking it as a joke and laughing at me for crying for someone that was dead. That day I cut myself with scissors on my wrist. and I regreted it. Middle school came and I was still fat. People made jokes about me being fat. And my family made jokes about it too. My sister even once started pushing me and calling me names. At school even my teacher didn't liel me. One day in her class I cutted myself with my lead pencil ... No one noticed... I couldn't take it. All the name calling, pushing around, looks of disgust made me want to end my life. But I didn't. High school came I made new friends and people stared talking about me. Saying how ugly I was and how fake I was. In second semester I started listening to rock. Bands like Black Veil Brides , Pierce The Veil, Falling In Reverse, Sleeping With Sirens, Asking Alexandria , etc. Those bands saved my life. They made me see that everything is okay, that it will all end, and to keep my head up high. Thanks to them i have 2 years without cutting and being bullied. I stood up to my bullies and I saw Self Harm was not the way out of my problems. My family makes jokes to time to time. And people at school call me "Emo" and "Scene" but I could careless. I just put my bands on and listen to the MUSIC THAT SAVED ME.
