In 8th grade I got the app ask.fm. I thought I was the coolest girl in school, answering anonymous questions. But stupid questions like, "best friends? Favorite subjects?" Then I put my ask.fm website in the bio on my Instagram page. I then set myself up for anything. People could now go on my ask.fm and bully me. To the point were I couldn't do it anymore. In April of 2013 I tried out for my high school cheer team. My best friend from kindergarten was on the team and convinced me to try out. I made it. The first day of school came, and a rumor was going around about a senior on my cheer team. At practice that day, the senior came up to me and accused me of starting the rumor. From then on I was getting bullied by 3 seniors on the cheer team. I was heart broken. I thought the team was suppose to be a family? Obviously not. The drama and bullying starting calming down, until I became best friends with my close friends boyfriend. Things really took a turning point. Rumors started going around about how I was the most hated freshman in school and people would come up to me in the halls and tell my I ruined relationships and that I should kill myself. I was getting anonymous things on ask of people saying to kill myself and to just transfer to another school because no one liked me. I couldn't handle it. I would sometimes take 3 showers a day so I could just cry and no one would know. My parents had no clue what was going on. I was getting bullied by my best friend since kindergarten on the cheer team because I ruined her relationship as well. The whole cheer team hated me by then. I couldn't take it anymore and I quit. I was done with people telling me all these mean and hurtful things on ask, by text message and in person. It broke me down. Sometimes I would lie to my parents and say I threw up so I was aloud to stay home from school. I wouldn't eat and I had lost all of my friends. Then another rumor starting going around that I was transferring. People were on my ask saying they were hoping I wasn't going to their school because I would create to much drama. They were hoping I would be home schooled. Some even said they didn't know how my parents even loved me. It hurt me, peoples words hurt. That next day I broke down telling my parents everything that was going on. They made the switch right away. I have found friends that actually like me for me and friends that don't want to get in drama. I know they have my back always and I'm glad. I have deleted my ask.fm I learned that I need to stand up for myself and stay strong. I have not forgiven any of my friends during that period of time and I only have contact with 3 of the people from my old school. I'm happy with my decision and I know I made the right choice.
