Other times I participated with tether ball or playing jump rope with the other kids. During those times I was not afraid as much as being bullied as I did when I went to class.
When I went to high school I was bullied by a few boys whom I attended classes with. I dreaded going to class for fear that they might be there. They were in most of my classes such as English, History, and Science. I was a Christian then, and I knew that Jesus loved me and that He loved them. I had a friend whom I went to church with a few times who had witnessed on how much I was a wounded target emotionally.
When I was a senior in high school, I attended a Christian fellowship meeting after school once a week. It was nice to meet other Christians in the school. I was not bullied as much, and I wasn't afraid to attend any of the classes.
After I graduated from high school, I felt that I was not worth anything at all. I was afraid that I would never make anything of my life because of my delays in learning. I back slid from Christianity, and I drank alcohol. I continued to drink until I was in my mid-twenties. I did not care if God loved me. I went bars, crying, and I attended college part time. I took courses in Writing, Art, and Microsoft Word. I received my statement of Achievement then in 1998. I knew that God was behind me when I succeeded in getting the certificate.
I knew that God was there when I went through the rough journey at school. I also attended freedom Session at a local church and those sessions as helped me redeem some of the bitterness.
