I was bullied all my life. There were times when I tried telling my parents but they didn’t listen to what I had to say. Majority of the bullying came from people who hated me, people who thought I showed off in class, and friends. Out of everything I’ve listed, being bullied by friends was the hardest thing to overcome. I did everything like: taking anger out on others, getting consulting, and holding it in to myself; and nothing worked. Eventually, I got tired of the same thing over and over so I started writing things in my computer and filling myself with positivism. Doing those methods has helped me tremendously to being a strong person I am today. You don’t have to keep putting up with criticism like I did. I know that I can’t inspire alot of people but I want to inspire some. Whoever is reading this, You’re smart, beautiful/ handsome with full of talent. Don’t listen to anyone and what they say about you because at the end of the day, it is your life and you are the one who can control it. I tried to give up due to what I was going through. I still think about it but if I gave up, it would only lead to regret. Do what you have to do to succeed. No matter if anything bad happen to you, try to get your education and strive the best way you can. You have a purpose in life so don’t give up to criticism! Chase after your dreams!
