As you are aware, social media has provided another avenue for bullies to propagate their hate, abuse and harm and to do so anonymously and unfortunately, with global access to depraved bully cheer squads.
I was a kid who had no idea what to do or how to block out or combat the daily verbal assault in my final 2 years of high school. I already suffered through several years of it. I couldn't concentrate on my schoolwork and whilst I got through the final exams, I was not able to do my best. The bullying had a big impact on me in those final 2 years and beyond. What I did know was that I would never give in, never give up.
You may have experienced bullying or know someone who has, or who is going through it right now. I would appreciate you sharing this post with anyone who might be empowered by my words, my experience and survival beyond the bullying.
You may wonder why I decided to write this letter at all. My daughter turns 7 next year. My earliest memory of being teased was when I was 7. I would hate for any child to experience what I did. We don’t all have the belief or strength in ourselves to get through it unaided and unsupported. This is also the back story to why I began Gutsy Girl. Thanks for reading.
