This year I got bullied so bad by people that I thought were my friends. These people made me feel so bad and they treated me so bad and told me I wasn’t good enough for anyone and so I started to believe it and so by believing that I wasn’t good enough, I thought well what is the point of being here and I thought about taking my life but then I thought no. I ‘m not gonna let them win so I didn’t, but then they told me I was fat and ugly an no one will ever like me and I believed that too. So after every meal I made myself throw up and it made me feel so much better even though it was super bad. I have two best friends that I love so much and trust so much, but the time that I needed them the most they weren’t there for me, they didn’t stick up for me they just watched me cry in the hallways, wishing that this day would be over. I cried everyday I went home from school but I couldn’t tell anyone that was going one because they wouldn’t understand and nobody would believe me, so I bottled up my feelings and everyday I told myself that I would be fine and that it would be a good day, but deep down I knew it wasn’t going to be.
