After reading the blog post on bullying it has managed to bring up old feelings from when I was a child at school. Kids are just so cruel. Back when I was at school kids could say the most horrible things. They weren’t armed with social media, the Internet or mobile phones, but their actions could damage the kindest souls. I spent my teenage years being trodden down… Every part of me picked to bits. I absolutely begged for acceptance but it never really came and it affected me and continues to affect me as an adult. The day that I birthed my baby girl was the greatest moment of my life, but I was instantly scared for her. I never want my children to experience what I did, but it is just so hard to prepare them for the onslaught of jealousy, bullying and emotional battering that being a teenager will present. I just hope to God that my girls are caring and confident in themselves. I hope they protect themselves and their friends, and do not let anyone else crush their confidence.
