When I was in elementary/middle school I had 2 friends Ivana and Dario. We would always hang out they are the reason I'm here today. Every since I was little I knew I was different I knew that I didn't have the same attraction to boys as I had to girls. Even though I tried to hide it everybody knew. I was a tomboy I never did like girl clothes I hated them in fact. I always had my hair in a ponytail or braids straight to the back. I had a crush on this girl who I thought was my friend. In the end she taught me that not everyone is your friend and that there's just some people you can't trust. She told everybody I liked her and I was picked on for it. I stopped getting bullied when I was around 12 and that's because we moved to Texas but by then the damage was done. I have insecurity problems and I don't think highly of myself sometimes. I'm 20 and bully has effected all my life all the way into adulthood. Way too many kids in this country kill themselves because they're being tormented daily by other kids whose parents who don't give a crap about what their child is doing to another. Crazy thing is they don't seem to care until their child is facing criminal charges for the death of the kid they bullied. Bullying not only affects the child being bullied, it affects the families and the community as a whole. This needs to stop now.
