Who says?

Hello,
today is a bit more of a serious post. I want to talk about bully's and how they can make you feel. Now I'm sure who ever is reading this will have unfortunately been on the receiving end of bullying, and it Can make you feel like the most unpopular person in the world. Now when I was at school I was never physically bullied, but there were people every single day who would make comments about my weight and my appearance. I'm writing this because my cousin is starting secondary school in September, and although she wont read this, i know that shes worried about fitting in.

I hate the fact that at some point she will be bullied and all children will be. I thing the problem is that to many children think that bullying is physical, and yes that's true in some cases but most of the time its verbal. The amount of times I was called fat, ugly and much worse that I don't want to write on-line because I don't even want to write what I was called, but it made me feel so small, unimportant and there were some days I didn't want to go to school.

So many kids are worried that they will be bullied and that they wont it in that they don't admit to what they love or who they are in fear of what people will think of them. When I was at school I kept the fact that I was home schooled during some of my primary school a secret from people I knew, even my best friends because I was so worried about what they would think of me. I didn't want to be the odd one out, I didn't tell them I love doctor who and harry potter because that would have made me different and I didn't want to be made fun of.

They point of this post is to tell you that's its okay to be different, its okay to like the most unpopular band, that shows that people associate with being geeky and its okay to have a past, and you should never feel like you should hide who you really are. Most of the people I went to school with haven't spoken to me since we all left, you will find that those people who make fun of you because they see you as different will have the same problem. they will have something they don't want to share because they don't want to be seen as slightly different.

Never be embarrassed to tell people what you love, what you believe and how you chose to live you life. Because they people that have a problem with that, and chose to pick on you aren't important, they wont be part of your future and there opinion's are not valid. to everyone that's been called fat, ugly, boring, to thin or made fun of because of the colour of your skin or hair, remember that the people who said that aren't important and it may hurt when they say it, but never let it affect you because everyone is perfect just the way they are, and no one should feel like they need to change to fit what people say is normal. Remember, why fit in when you were born to stand out.

Sorry that was a bit long.
Bye for now xxx
