In elementary school and high school I was bullied for being the smart kid, I would just let them say what they wanted and I never told anyone that this was happening. The worst part about it was I internalized everything and I would hurt myself in return. I had scars on my arm that look like bug bites and everyday kids would call me a meth addict. That hurt the most. Nobody wanted to sit with me or work with me as their partner. This happened every day. For a long time I didnt wear anything but long sleeve shirts and sweaters because I figured if they couldn't see it then they would stop bullying me. It didnt help they continued to do it anyway. I like to believe that I am a strong person and I try my best to not let things bother me....now that I am graduated all I want to do is help others that are being bullied. This is a horrible thing and it hurts way to many people. I want to help stop it.
