Bullies who thinks its cool to put someone down is not cool in my book. When i was little i had no friends most of the kids would get up and leave and maybe talk behind my back. A few of the adults would do the same call me names right after knowing the kid who would call me a name. While growing up, i had big ears, wear glasses, and buck teeth so came the labels like dumbo, four eyes and beaver, yeah it would hurt my feelings over time but i some friends that i met over the years who would be bullied too but it was mainly directed towards me. Friends come and go but bullies are there forever we can't get rid of them. All through my school years, it got me to thinking 'its only words and words cant hurt you' and i still hold on to my mono. Now that I'm 24 years old, im still bullied but not as much though, kids from the high school that i live next to, some of the kids there would see me and yell out of their friend's car or throws something at me when they go by but misses every time and i just laugh at the failure of hitting me with the thing. With the names as mentioned, i learned how to turn it around and make it fun like, big ears "so what, i get every channel out there even alien channels" or buck teeth, "at least i can rebuild my house every time it goes down while you are homeless for a while and would not be any trees left for you to build" As much as i want to punch the kids i can't until they are 18 years old which i will never know until i over hear them saying that they are 18. So i let the words roll off my back and one day, the bullies will be asking us for a job and we can turn them down which i dont think we will cuz they will be bossed around by us and if they dont like then they can leave and find another job.
