I know it's an old thing, but it hasn't stopped. I'm not writing this because it's recently happened to me or someone I know, but because it's a real problem. 

As a victim myself, I understand how it is to be bullied, made fun of, ridiculed and trodden down. It's hard, and made me into an angry, resentful person incapable of trusting anyone. I had very few friends in high school and college, many of whom I had known since I was in elementary school. I never thought I was pretty, or even capable of getting a boyfriend or even someone interested in me because people told me I was ugly, boring and stupid. It wasn't even just peers that said these things to me, it was my first boyfriend. Some of you may remember the artwork I posted of us (the grey and red wolf). But hindsight is 20/20 vision. He manipulated me, emotionally and mentally abused me, and made me believe that I had to not be a virgin in order to be a proper adult woman. Having no confidence, I listened. 

I wish I had confidence, I wish I had someone there to listen to my problems. But having withdrawn into my shell, I didn't even talk to my parents, my older brother, or even my closest friends. I was trampled and mauled, and only now have begun to truly heal. 

The church I belong to, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, has posted a video regarding bullying that I recommend everyone watch and learn from. Regardless of your religious standings, it is a beautifully done video and shows not only the side of the victim, but the perpetrator.

Please don't comment with your views on religion.
