    I was bullied from the age of 8 to 12 for being overweight. It first started with verbal abuse from my new classmates (I had just moved schools), but it quickly escalated into spreading rumors, locking me into bathrooms, and stealing my money and belongings. I cried everyday when I biked home and I hated myself. I had 0 friends. My bullies told me that I didn’t deserve to live and that I should kill myself, both in person and online on Facebook. My family was already going through a dark and hurtful period, so the bullying only made my feelings of hopelessness and anxiety grow. I moved schools again when I was 12, and even though I haven’t been bullied since then, I still struggle with self-esteem issues, self-harm, depression, and dysmorphia. I reached out for help a year ago (at the age of 14), and I’m slowly recovering from my depression and anxiety issues. Though sometimes I have very significant relapses, I’m still hopeful for the future. Bullying changed me, but it did not destroy me.
