Looking back at my elementary and middle school life really got me thinking. It shows me how much I’ve changed and grown as a person. It’s also showed me why I hate people so much. I always cried and ate lunch alone. I never talked or hung out with any of the kids. I always did that since I was scared that everyone was the same and would just treat me like dirt and would walk all over me. I always got comments such as “you’re ugly”, “you’re gay”,”no one likes you”, “you’re nothing”, and the list goes on. I took them to heart and so I started shunning everyone, even my family. No one was ever there for me. I had to deal with everything alone and with no support. Depression got the best of me, so I tried committing suicide, but it only made things worse. I had to go through life knowing that I’m a failure even at killing myself. Fitting in was one of the worst things I ever tried doing. It just made me more sad and realized how pathetic I was for even trying. As time pasted I’ve learned not to give a damn about what people think and say. Also that looks, expensive materials, and selfish needs are not the number one priority. My focus is now set to meet my goal of graduating high school and college and then to become successful. I want to prove to those who doubted me or put me down wrong. To show them that I’m not nothing and I do have a role to play in society.
