I am not sure how it started but somehow, I ended up becoming the victim of bullying. That included mean rumours on a daily basis and my classmates avoiding me like I had a disease. These were times when I felt completely sad and hopeless and hated each day. I thought it would never change and I simply did not want to tell any adults about it because somehow there was this internal belief that maybe there really was something “wrong” with me. So if anybody is out there reading who is currently in this kind of situation please be sure that I know how lonely and sad you can feel. But guess what - things changed for me!
