When I moved in the third grade to a place unknown I never imagined the issues I would have. I was in an unfamiliar place with very unfamiliar people. My lunch was stolen every single day. I was a third grader! But I never told anyone because I didn't want to cause issues. It got so bad that I had to put my lunch into my teachers purse and she had to lock it up in her desk. I was never the "popular kid" when I was younger and thought many individuals were my friends who weren't.
However, I grew out of being the person no one knew to the person that everyone saw. I got involved in middle school and shined in high school. But the only way I did that was to forget about the negativity that surrounded certain people and did my own thing.
There are always people that are going to put you down but you have to believe in yourself enough to get past that. So what if someone doesn't like you. Not everyone is meant to be friends. But also don't stoop to others level with bullying because it just makes others feel as hurt as you.
By writing some words below, you are showing your support and letting everyone know they're not alone.

Thank you so so much for sharing our story. Incredible to read how you turned the negatives into positives, it is a very common theme among others who have also posted their stories! Keep up the positivity, we need more of it in the world!
