“Growing up in the ’80s in central New Jersey as a weird kid with a blue mohawk listening to the Sex Pistols and dressing really funky, I was bullied pretty badly. It was every single day in elementary school and kept going into middle school, too. I felt totally alone, without a single person there for me.”

Staying strong and coping up under given circumstances needs great courage and strength
You’re so right about that, Tanvir! 💯👍
Thank you kindly, Shanti! Many blessings to you! 💖🌞
My thoughts go out to Michelle. While I would call it bullying, I did catch a lot of crap off people for having long hair and wearing an earring and Native American moccasin boots. It infuriated me because I was simply trying to relax a bit after four years of living under military discipline.
I feel for Michelle and for you, Michael. I got bullied for so many things! Labeled stuck up, labeled crazy, labeled a slut. Bullies will make up reasons to bully. They’re constantly moving the goal posts. And to overcome them is to taste victory! 💖💖💖
One can feel the emptiness and isolation in these words.
You got that right! I sure felt it when I read it and I got to relive a very dark time in my life. Sometimes you must have little reminders like that to keep you humble.
