Bullying

This week, I learned a tough lesson about friendships. I also learned that bullying doesn't stop in high school.

I was bullied growing up. One day, I had a horrible message spray painted, about myself, on the front doors of my school. I went home and spent the day crying. I never understood why someone would purposely set out to hurt someone. I am sure I have hurt people before but never intentionally. 

I won't go into details about what happened recently but I will say that the whole experience made me appreciate my real friends and my family. It also made me realize how important it is to teach London how to respect others and their feelings. I want to be a great role model for him. 

I hope London is never bullied or a bully. I hope I can teach him right from wrong and encourage him to be honest whenever possible. I want him to know the importance of getting to know someone before judging them and that everyone has a story if you take time to listen. I don't ever want him to feel like I did.

Being a bully is never okay.
