Just a quick doodle I've done today.
I really wanted to upload somethind for the Spirit Day because... well... Yeah, I've been "indirectly" bullied in the middle school period. I'm a really cheerful and active girl, I like so much being with my friends and lately I knew some new people that now are a very important part of my life. I've always been a girl that loved to have fun with friends, until the 1st year of middle school arrived. I don't know why, all my cheerfulness... It disappeared. All of sudden. I immediately felt marginalized from the other people of my class. And then I started feeling depressed, sad, sometimes I even thought it would have been better to die. Isn't that a horrible thing for a 12 years old girl to think? The only thing that allowed me to live a little better was the friendship of a few people, my old friends and just 2 girls of my class. If I didn't have neither them... I don't know what I would have been able to do.
My family didn't know nothing. Neither my old friends, they just kept being my friends as always. Why they didn't know? Beacuse I've always acted like it was always fine. I've always done my best to look okay, like if nothing never happened. But when I was alone, thinking about my situation, thinking about my real feelings... I was always crying so much in these moments. When middle school finished, I promised to myself that I would have changed, or better, I would have returned to be the one that i was and my REAL SELF. This summer I knew a bunch of idiots, with them I immediately felt at ease, I felt accepted, I could be myself, maybe because I'm an idiot too, lol
So, I want to say "Thanks" to all my "old" friends, that of course I consider friends even now, at the same way of before, for cheering me up when I was sad and another big "THANK YOU" to all my new friends that made me re-discover my real self.
And also, saying all this I want to say STOP to bully, every form of bullying it is, it ALWAYS hurts. Don't emarginate people just because they look "different" from you, always try to know each other as better as you can. Prejudices are the worst things in this World.
