I know this is a sensitive subject, but please feel free to share your experiences if you feel comfortable and please know you are among friends that love and support you.
My SO and I had a long talk last night about how we were both bullied in school. The conversation started because I told him if we had gone to the same middle school or high school, I would have admired him from afar because I never would have had the nerve to tell him I had a crush on him. He said there’s no way I would have liked him because he was the “weird kid” that nobody liked and he would get bullied to no avail every single day. I told him I would have liked him even more then because I was the “weird girl” who also got bullied. At least we would have been able to sit together in the cafeteria.
I think that conversation brought us closer together, and I really believe that being outcasts is the reason we both eventually found each other, and the reason we get along so well.
The thing of it is, neither of us were really that “weird” back then. We both just had strange last names and liked old things before it was cool to like old things, and that’s it. I really can’t believe how cruel kids can be for absolutely no reason.
Please feel free to share your own experiences with bullying. It might be able to help someone else reading it that is going through it right now.
