Humans have this thing, in situations as this, they tend to take their story and exaggerate a bit. We've all done it, and it makes for a good book or Television show.
Right. Lemme tell you, if that's what you really think victims of bullying do, you're sorely mistaken.
All during middle school and high school, I was physically, verbally, emotionally, and sexually harassed on a daily basis in school... And THEN I got to go home and get beat on and emotionally abused by my brother and sister. I had to constantly watch over my shoulder for those that I knew would come for me. I feared for my life on a daily basis... I lost a huge part of my caring soul for a very long time because of it. I was turned from a sweet, caring, loving individual to a self-hating, cynical, un-empathetic *******.
Not a day goes by when I don't think about that.... When the abuse I suffered isn't effecting my life in some way. It's like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder... Apparently, you no ****ing clue what its like to go through every second of your life hating yourself, feeling eyes watching you, judging you, hearing the echoes of your bullies' words in your ears, trying with all their might to cut you down even a DECADE after it ended.
For any of you that think bullying is just some minor thing, and that she's just "overblowing it", or that it really doesn't effect people that much, you are ignorant pricks who don't have a ****ing clue what its like to suffer every moment of your life for years.
Any of you who thinks ^THAT is overblown too.... Words will never, ever, EVER come close to expressing the true horror of the abuse I suffered at the hands of my peers. Looking in that girl's eyes... There's no doubt in my mind that every word she spoke, every emotion she projected, was 100% real and un-manufactured. Go back to your childhood, live MY life, live HER life.... And then talk to me about how it's exaggerated.
