hello, my name is mckenzie. and this is my all really started in 5 grade & i was being bullyed and i started too feel isolated from my friends. in 6th grade things got worse for me, rumors where going around which didnt help me with the bullys. and in 7th my life was a nightmare. i hit myself. when i was going into 8th grade i convinced my mom too let me do homeschooling. thats when my cutting started, because now i wasent face too face with my bullys, i was on the internet. kids would call me scared and weak bc i wasent there too face the issues and things tht where said about me, i stopped talking too alot of my friends, and i began too be really lonely, cutting helped me have my release of pain. i finally opened up too my mom after i cut my self 15 times in one day. the pain was too hard too face alone. just writing this makes me upset because im still in the same place i was when i started. i feel like there is not hope. i feel like no matter wat, ill never b goodenough for my parents or anyone else. feeling the way i do is intense and painful. a few weeks ago, i wanted too commit suicide...i stopped myself. suicide is a permanit desicion for a temporary problem. iv come too relize that. thank you for reading my story.

prove your strong !
by: keza S

My heart hurts for you, I am so sorry you were a victim of bullying. That is horrible to experience. Don't let that determine your worth.You are so much better then the ones bullying you. They are weak, not you. What you can prove to people is how strong you are, by giving up the cutting and finding friends who will appreciate you and add into your life and no subtract. It really makes I big difference being around the right support system. Allow your pain to help someone else who has had to go threw this. I will be praying for you and your transformation into a wonderful young lady. I know God has a wonderful story for you ! You just have to believe it as well.
Love Your sister in Christ, Keza S

You are never alone
by: Tatiana

Dear McKenzie,

Probably not the right words to say, but a lot of people go through this pain. I am probably of the age of your mother, but during my years at school I was the "defender" who rushed to help when I saw things like this happen. To my utmost shock, my own child became a victim of bullying when he was seven-years-old. I felt so helpless and angry.

We sent him to a judo school despite the fact that he hated fighting. After a year there, his body language changed, and bullying stopped. I mean, he never really had to actually fight his abusers, but they stopped by themselves.

I think it is important that you do not isolate yourself from others, but face them. Is there something you love to do? Dancing, painting or something? Something that helps you to open up and be your true self. Try new things where you can show your creative side, and you will see that the world is much more beautiful and enjoyable place to be in. There are so many people who could love and appreciate you, if they get a chance to get to know you.

Believe this is true. You are never alone. And there is always someone who loves you just as you are.
