About 36 years ago, I walked home from school with my friends.
About 36 years ago, a girl who was in my circle of friends decided that I wasn’t worth of speaking to.
And, from that day forward, she never spoke to me again.
Even though we hung around with all the same girls.
For the next 10 years I let her, and others who followed her lead, treat me like a non human.
I suffered for a long time…I had always felt it was my fault until about a year ago…a year ago, people.
If this seems petty and seems like I am over dramatizing something…I would like to point on how long feelings like that can hang on.
On a crap day…it was like yesterday.
I am sure some of you are thinking, “Well, get over it.”
And I tell you this…maybe you should have a deeper think about it.
This is one of the most moving things I have ever seen on the subject of bullying.
