This is my body. This is not who I am, this is what I look like.
In grade school, I was bullied daily. It’s hard to look back on those days and not get emotional. I didn’t really have anyone to help me. I didn’t know why I was being bullied, so I started to think that it was because of my body. I started hating my body, and I wore baggy clothes, large sweaters, anything really that covered it. When I went swimming, I only wore one-piece bathing suits. It was hard for me. When I hit puberty, things only got worse.
I was depressed. I still am. But now my depression is based more on irrational fears than on my body image.
It took me a long time to realise that they were bullying me because they just didn’t like me, not what I looked like.
This past year, I’ve continued getting more and more confident to the point where I will actually wear skirts and dresses to school. My friends are people who like me for who I am, not what I look like. My girlfriend has especially helped.
Please, please, please, remember that it shouldn’t ever matter what you look like, it should only mater how you act.

    I’m confused….what “flaws” am I supposed to be looking at here? Why was she bullied? For being “perfect”?
