Being bullied? Get help, I did!


Bullying seems to be one of the hardest things for kids to get though these days. Not only because our lives revolve around our images across the entire web but bullies can now hurt you from across the globe without ever coming face to face with you, this creates an easier way to pick on prey. I feel for all these kids as I was a victim of bullies growing up and it made my life so much harder then it needed to be. When I was in grades 4 and 5 I started to develop early and was teased and told that I stuffed my bra by boys and girls my age. I ended up flashing my chest to the entire girls locker room to shut them up because it was beginning to drive me crazy. I got in trouble for that but the girls never bugged me again. Then when I was in 6th and 7th grade I was teased a lot for smoking at a young age and for having a large chest. Girls didn’t like me and boys were very disrespectful. I ended up having a very hard time going to school because of the torture I faced, I hardly went and when I did bad things always happened. The last time I went to school the girls finally took it to a whole new level and chased me down on the field and dumped nacho cheese sauce on me and called me a slut. I dropped out of school.

So why is it important to share this story? Because I know how it feels to be bullied and rise against the hurt and pain. I found the love of my life who accepted me for me and has stayed by my side since I was 12 years old. The bullies I had grew up and moved on and I haven’t seen them since middle school which proves the pain doesn’t last forever. We all grow up and eventually as the people who hurt you will not bother you anymore. I am now a successful business owner with 3 kids and a loving husband even though my teen years were tough I just want everyone to know that the bullies do not create the future and have no control over your life.

The best thing you can do is keep yourself safe on the internet and avoid those who bring you down. Always tell someone when you are being bullied because nobody deserves to be treated that way. Talk to your parents, teachers, family members or even call the kids help line to make sure your not fighting this alone. I was lucky enough to find someone to support me in my struggle and see how amazing I really was, you can to.
