    When I was in middle school bullying started for me. Girls were so horrible, mean, would make fun of you, put you on the spot in front of your peers, ridicule me for everything I did. The bullies however, were my friends. The girls I had grown up with since kindergarten. It stemmed from jealousy, but when it was happening, it made me hate myself for who I was. My family had the means to put me into a school where everyone was accepted and things got better until I went to my town’s high school where I would rejoin the girls who had bullied me. The girls who used to “own” my middle school were no longer the big fish, however, there was a new group of girls who became bullies. They were my friends also, but they bullied me to get me to throw parties at my house, to do things I didn’t want to do, but would feel un-accepted if I didn’t do them. I was pretty and popular, but I was not strong. I wanted to be accepted so I was willing to do almost anything to please these girls who had the upper hand. I went through alot of dark times, hurting myself, thinking there was nothing I could do and it could never get better. I tried to take my life, but that spread like wildfire, and there was no sympathy instead I was targeted more because girls knew I was weak. I tried to seperate myself from these toxic people, but the further I got, the more they hated me and targeted me. The point is that I am now 21, I made it out of the worst 7 years of my life, and I see now that no matter how bad things can get, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. You will not be treated like your nothing for your entire life. It is so hard to see that when your in the thick of it, but I wish now after hearing about a young girl from my high school who last night took her life that I would have become an advocate against teen bullying. It is not ok ever to put people down, to make them feel worthless. Everyone in the world is here for a reason, and it is noones job to judge, or target or attack someone for not being the prettiest, richest, best dressed or skinniest. Those were the superficial issues that I dealt with, even though I was all of those things. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like, anyone can be bullied. Bullying breaks my heart because the bullies will one day see what they had done to people. My wish is for people who are bullied to realize that this too shall pass. It may be the worst day of your life, but there are people who care about your happiness and who will love you for everything you are.
