Being bullied made me feel miserable, worthless and insecure. I was lonely and had low self-esteem – and my education really suffered. I just couldn’t concentrate at school.
Things are better now. I stay away from the bullies and have friends that I can talk to, but it took far too long for me to get to this stage.
With Fixers, I’m sharing my story in the hope that I can help prevent others from experiencing similar abuse.
By highlighting the emotional impact of bullying, I want to show that it’s something that needs to stop.
