Years ago I took a vow to put a stop to bullying since I myself was a victim for most of my life. I pray that everyone who reads this post takes bullying seriously. The scars left behind by bullying can & often do last a lifetime. I constantly have to remind myself that things are different now, no one will hurt me like they used to. But my self esteem will forever be affected, my fears & inhibitions will for the most part remain the same. I have been shaped into who I am today because of the bullying. I was teased, threatened, tortured, spat on, punched, kicked, laughed at and often had things thrown at me by the bullies in my life. For me it started in kindergarten & worsened from the 1st-5th grade, yet continued througout junior & even trickled into high school. As hard to believe as it may be, I promise all of you that it will get better. There is a life outside of school, and you will find that the bullies aren't in it. God Bless you. Pray and stay strong. Try and talk to people that love and care about you, a big brother or sister, a friend, aunt, uncle, mom, dad, pastor or neighbor. God bless you all.
