Most people deal with bullying from their peers at school, but my story is unique in the way that it was from my very own family. We were living with my step-dad's mom, in her 2 bedroom trailer. For whatever reason, her and my mother didn't get along. She did everything she could to get to my mom, but she wasn't budging. Once she realized that, she knew the only way to her was through her kids. So, me being the older, turned in to Leota's biggest target. As I was trying to get healthy, and going to the gym, she would criticize me for having a bowl of sugar free ice cream. She beat my confidence down every way she could possibly think of. 5 years later, and my confidence still controls me, and it all started because she just destroyed me. I also still struggle with forgiving her. But I have come to realize that even then, and especially now, I am a better person than her. What she says doesn't matter, what matters is how much I care about myself. My message to everyone is to stay strong, because I PROMISE, one day, you will be able to get away from it all, and live your very own life, and just be happy with yourself. I promise.
