To this day I'm still affected by my childhood/early adulthood, the way I was treated by other kids/people, the utter loneliness of always being the new kid, the weird kid, the nerd, the bookworm, the loner, the poor kid..then being called the boy/girl, ugly, dyke, spaz, slut and freak... School was never fun, nor do I have good memories of it... (I lost count at 13 of the amount of schools I went to )..I avoided eating school lunch (and later in public) and hiding in the libraries... Refusing to go to recess...hiding during gym because I was too scared to be made fun of... Becoming so shy I couldn't look ANYONE in the eyes. ...
You'd be surprised how long and how HARD not only this, but also having a VERY dysfunctional family life growing up has affected me and I know I'm not alone....
I'm a work in progress and it has been a long time coming for me finally becoming happy with WHO and WHAT I am.
I have good days and bad...I'm growing into myself and I'm loving myself more with each day that passes.
With that being said,
This spoken word video hit at my heart strings...I was crying during the whole thing!
I encourage you to not only listen to this but if you have or know of young naive kids (or meanie adults) please let them hear/watch this.
