My worst memories from school are from people pretending to like me and they didn't. Boys who said their friend wanted to go out with me, but it was a prank. They just wanted to embarrass their friend and me. Who does that? What was the point in that? Girls bullied me for everything: my hair, teeth, acne, smell, clothes, weight. Usually by talking to their friends about me right in front of me, as if I couldn't hear them and figure out they were talking about me. Even most of my "friends" didn't like me that much. It gave me trust issues. It took me years to rebuild my self esteem and believe it when someone liked me. It scares me that one day my kids will go through that and I won't know. My mom never knew that stuff was going on. I talked to my mom about everything else, but I was too embarrassed and prideful to tell her about it.
