    Ever since I was little I was always bigger than other kids, and I was super chubby. People would comment on how big I was and say rude things. At first I just rubbed it off, but with each time the words were thrown at me they would hit me harder and harder, until I just couldn’t take it. As if it all weren’t enough, we moved to a different state, where I would be a fat lonely child. My cousins didn’t help much with the bullying because they would say rude things about me and give me rude nicknames like “Chubby Cheeks” and “Fat Bones.” I cried myself to sleep every night and I also had medicine to help not stress so much and have a lot of anxiety. While other 2nd graders were busy playing tag, I was trying to figure out different methods to lose weight. Then finally in the middle of third grade it started coming off. I was so happy that I could finally feel accepted by others and not having to worry about that but those words and comments stretched farther than I could have ever imagined. I was scared of gaining weight and refused to eat anything. I developed a small eating disorder. Though it was not for long or that severe, it still got to my head and I never felt pleased with myself and I lost a ton of self- confidence and self- esteem. I thought of myself as ugly and that no one would ever love me because in my eyes I was still the sad, depressed, and an ugly girl that no one liked. I am still dealing with problems and they have led to severe anxiety/depression disorders that I am scared to tell others and stress problems and each day is a battle for me, but I try to not give up. I know there is hope for all of those going through what I have been through and worse. Just know that everything happens for a reason and that God loves us all and he has greater things for us and we just have to push harder than most, but we will get through.
