A couple of years ago one of my classmates came up to me and said one thing right into my face. “I don’t like your name.”
She continued by saying that she “always thought it was weird and ugly”.
It really doesn’t seem like a big deal to me now, but to a twelve year old kid it felt like being told that she hated me and thought I was weird and ugly..right into my face..
The only thing I could do was stand there and have her staring at me until she finally went away..as soon as I got home I couldn’t stop crying.
I kept blaming myself for being bullied and thought that what they were saying about me was true.
After a lot of other stuff happened and a bunch of mean things had been said, I decided that I couldn’t be weak anymore. I tried not to react and pretended not to care about anything they were saying..it was hard and not easy BUT it was definitely worth it!
After I was able to rebuild my self confidence that I had lost due to all these years of being teased and bullied, they finally left me alone.
What I’m trying to say is; don’t care about anything other people say about you! Believe in yourself and all the things that you love about yourself, don’t give them the power to say anything to or about you that isn’t true and especially; don’t let them convince you that you aren’t exactly the way you are supposed to be.
If anyone ever tries to bully you again, walk right up to them, tell them to leave you alone and to never bully you EVER again.
Love yourself, believe in who you are and don’t let anyone convince you of being something you are not!
