Back On Track

Back On Track

Female. Georgia

When I was growing up, I went to a small school with maybe about 500 kids in total.

Everyone knew everyone at my school. If something happened, everyone knew about it. If someone needed help with something, the whole school would pitch in.

Since word would always spread fast at the school, it was no surprise when the news that I was bisexual was talked about all over the school. So many kids bullied me for being bisexual and the bullying continued for three years.

My grades had started dropping which led to me being kicked out of the school. I then moved to another school with over 900 kids, and I loved it. I was doing great, my grades were amazing, and I was so happy.

Then, once kids found out that I was bisexual, I started getting bullied again. At this point, I wanted to give up and quit. 

I was so depressed and no one realized it except for one person who later turned his back on me because I was “too much to handle”. I tried my hardest to stay focused at the school but I couldn’t do it anymore.

I left the school to do online schooling but that failed too. My parents somehow saw me as a person who didn't care about anyone but herself, but I didn’t let that effect me.

I refused to give up even when no one around me wanted to help me. Everyone gave up on me but I stood strong and I got through it.

I eventually found someone who cared about me and he helped turn my life around.

Here is my message: Despite what you may be going through, never give up on yourself!
