First off I want to say I am writing this to spread that it does get better and you are not alone but also to say that you should thank all the people who have hurt you because it makes you stronger. Thank you to all the people who have made me the person who I am today, by tearing me down because each time I have gotten right back up. I've always been super outgoing and fun and I love to party but at the same time I always try to help others and try to put others before myself. I never fit in with a group at my old school I always felt alone, like I was a second choice or a puppy just following around. I started hanging out by myself at lunch because I felt so embarrassed to be with people, I felt like everyone was staring at me. It started to take a toll on me. I was depressed and felt like I had nowhere to turn. I had almost no friends at school, I was not close with my teachers or counselors, and as much as I love my parents I couldn't tell them my feelings. I had videos made about me, rumors spread about me and even people yelling things at me in the halls or starring me down to the point where I just wanted to cry. I stopped going to school and it got to the point where I had to leave school, I felt unsafe and unwanted, I didn't know what to do. I was out of school for 2 months and during that time I was trying to find new options for school and tried to be more like myself. I became to surround myself with people who I knew I could trust and better people. I lost a lot of people in my life in the 2 years but it doesn't matter to me anymore because I am happy now and I love my school and the people I am surrounded by. Not only did I grow stronger, I learned lots of lessons. I hope everyone will hear not even half of my story and take into consideration that words can hurt and it's not cute to treat someone poorly.
