    I was made fun of for being adopted. They told me that my birth mother does not love me, that I am useless and the one that killed me “No wonder your mother did not want you. You are a good for nothing slut.” I told my mom right away, I knew it was not true, but it hurt. Two years later, here I am. Recently put in counseling because I want to kill myself/hurt myself. My life is not the same. I am sad all the time, do not want to deal with people, and do not care. Two kids, just two, decided it was okay to say these words about me. All it took was two kids to traumatize me, two kids to make me ashamed of whom I was. I used to be open about which I was and never feel the urge to hide it, but people decided it was okay to pick on someone who was different. Going into high school, I choose to hide it, but word got around that I was adopted. People looked at me different and took the way society personified adopted kids and made it their thoughts about other kids like me. Kids called me spoiled rotten, thinking I got everything I wanted, but I do not. I’m like any other girl in high school with a different background than the average person. I thought it made me unique, until someone had to damage my point of view on being adopted. Everyone has a hard time in high school; we are all trying to find out who we are and who we want to be. I have it harder, I do not know who I am because part of me I will never know. Everyone does the whole gene chapter in biology; normally people find it so cool. I ran out of class in tears because we were supposed to figure out what genes we got from what parent. I cannot do an assignment like that because I have no clue what my parents look like.
    One of my bullies got hazed at school, I wanted to think he deserved it, but he didn’t. Now? He still bullies, has a free ride at my high school because my school couldn’t afford to be sued. He thinks he’s on top of the world and he believes it is okay to make me feel like I do not even belong in this world. How it is alright that he bullied me, then got bullied, and found it okay to go back to his old ways? People say I was spoiled, by my bully. His parents cheer him on and give him money for every bone he breaks in another persons’ body while playing football. His parents found it totally acceptable when they found out he bullied me. People say I should tell him, but if I do that, I give him the power to tear me down more. When does he lose the power over me? How will he realize how terrible words can be, if I live in fear of him hurting me again?
