I delt with being bullied since 1st grade. Kids made fun of what i wore. I didnt come from a wealthy family by far but couldnt understand why these kids couldnt just ignore how i dressed and just be nice to me. It turned violent in 4th grade. Being punched, pinched, and even spat on. I took a stand when i was shoved into a urinal. After realizing how much of this treatment i took and covered it with a smile while altogether trying to forget things that happened to me i just snapped. Once that kids shoved me called bad names and walked away i then tapped on his shoulder and punched him as hard as i could in the face. I was hurt emotionaly and couldnt stop crying because i finally resorted to violence and felt bad about it. Lucky for me the bullying stop.... I developed muscles, started boxing and dedicated my time in high school by being a conflict mediator while scaring bullies away from the rest of the kids in the hallway. Felt like a hero and still do. Im proud to say i took a stand against bullying and will continue to be a hero for my kids and a hero to those children in need of one. Still at the end of the day you must always try to be your own hero.
