My story isn't about being hated by a school or even by a group of kids, it was three kids in particular. I was in 2nd grade and still in my let's just call it "developing" stage. I was short with big buck teeth and a horrible bowl cut. I had been growing up in a pretty rough area of new jersey and nothing made sence to me. The things going on in my neighborhood seemed so simple to me. I thought if I could be friends with everybody they would get along better and all the drama would end. Unfourtunitly a few kids from my school weren't going to let that happen. I was jumped a few times and called names every day. My belongings were being stolen from my home (this is later on of course) and I couldn't figure out what to do. 8th grade came along and after leaving the bowl cut and bad teeth behind I had been approached by my bullies this time I fought back. By this time I had gotten use to the way things were in that nasty place and I swung back. One punch led to the the other bullies to join in. What they didn't know was that in the time between elementary school and 8th grade I had been doing a little MMA in my free time and I knocked them right down and told them word for word "I don't hate you, I don't like you, and I sure as hell don't respect you but I know I'm so far above you that your not worth my time digging to get to u". Ever since then I haven't heard a peep. I graduated and I have my group of friends that I swear are the best things to happen to me. I know violence isn't the key but I was not violent. They may have gotten a little dirt on there pants from hitting the ground but I never went beyond what I needed to do to make my life better. Remember bullies are just flesh and bone just like you and in the end you're the one surviving the hell they cause, you're the ones that mosh through the choas and come out the other side. People say things will get better and if you wait it'll come to you, I'm telling you to stand up and call these people out. Tell them how wrong they are and show them how bad it hurts to be made a fool of by making their own stupidity known. You only get one shot at life, why not make it the most enjoyable one possable.
