From 1st grade till I graduated high school... I was bullied. I was called terrible names, such as: untouchable, dog face, ugly duckling. You see I still have a bacteria in my body that causes cysts and boils. As a result I had them all over my face, chest, back and arms. I was called the untouchable. The last day of my Senior year of high school I was given a grocery bag full of coupons for soap and shampoo to get myself 'clean'. I never went to prom, homecoming or any high school dance. I let myself believe the names that I was called... Untouchable... I believed that long after high school. Here is thing I put my self value at those names. BUT IF YOU'RE BEING BULLIED AND BEING CALLED NAMES: DON'T BELIEVE THEM FOR A SECOND. YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH MORE. YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD. Believe it and know it. It took me so long to really believe that I wasn't the UNTOUCHABLE. I am amazing and I can conquer any obstacle that comes my way. If you're being bullied repeat this to yourself EVERYDAY: No matter how bad it is... Or how bad it'll get- I'M GOING TO MAKE IT.
