I never watch the news. But it was on today, but I’d left the TV on when I was laying in bed, trying to stop a panic attack.
I saw this story and cried.
Because I was that girl. Who everyone called fat, stupid, ugly, “hideous.” Amber and I were called many of the same things.
And I was between the ages of 12 and 17 when this was going on.
And years later, I still hear it all the time…from myself, in my head. And I try to brush it off and pretend it has nothing to do with how my peers treated me in the past…but it probably does.
What a beautiful story. I hope she can be strong and fight harder than I did. After all she, has her brother. ^-^
