I was often bullied by the boys in my class or the other students during recess. I was often called "retarded" or dumb. I liked to sit at the back of the playground until the bell rang. Other times I played baseball with a few of the other girls in the class.
When I entered high school, I was punched in the head by a guy in my class for no apparent reason. I had hit him back a couple of times. I still think about that today, and how mad I felt. This boy called me ugly. I was just getting over the acne stage.
When I was in grade 12, I started to drink, and feel suicidal because I didn't know what to do after high school. I had some learning difficulties, but at least I passed grade 12. I failed a few subjects such as math and biology, but a passed a few other courses successfully.
I started college a few years later, and I started to feel good about myself. I took a typing course followed by a computer course. I also took a few courses in creative writing. I eventually received a certificate in arts and science.
My wounds have healed a lot. Other times I feel broken, and stressed when I deal with family issues. I pray for the lord for help.
