Never be afraid to let your TRUE COLORS shine through and always be who you are!!! One last thought before I say good night. Don't waste your time conforming to ideals that others hold for you. Be original, be different! It is ok!! Be happy!!
SHAKE THE HATERS OFF Month continues!! :)
As a freshman in high school I was awkward, scared, and just all around different. I have been overweight all my life and have had my fair share of stares, names, and harsh treatment. I have tried to be the nice person, and just let it go. I too found it difficult while in school and one bully in particular made it his mission to make my first period class a living hell. I hated going into class when I knew he was there. He would always pretend to flirt with me and try to grab me and made me feel uncomfortable. Every morning I would dread having to go to school. I wished I could disappear, just vanish so no one could see me or hurt me.
I was never one to tell anyone what anguish I was going through, I kept it hidden, and just tried my best to get through it. One fateful morning, he was harassing me again, grabbed me and didn't want to let go. I asked him to stop and let me go, he still hung on, a fellow classmate saw I was in distress and called the guy out. Right then and there he let me go, and for the rest of the semester he pretty much stopped bothering me.
A little while later this guy was dating one of my friends, and he approached me and apologized for being such a jerk. He said he realized how nice of a person I was and I didn't deserve that kind of treatment. I accepted his apology and we were able to get along for the remainder of my high school career.
I am thankful for the one person who stood up for me when I was too scared to do it myself. I am also thankful for the guy coming to the realization that I wasn't such an oddball after all.
All I can say to those who have been there, this is just one situation, I have thousands. Please know it can get better!! Don't give up, and speak up!! If you need help, ask!!
I don't believe violence is ever an answer, in fact I dislike it. There are other ways. Intelligence, kindness, and being strong will help! I promise, I have been there.
Much love to you all!!
Marty is a movie from 1955 starring Earnest Borgnine as Marty a butcher who is 34 years old and has yet to meet the right girl. He finally does meet a girl he likes and everyone around him doesn't approve. This is his struggle.
It can be found on NETFLIX!!!
It is a very insightful movie. It may be because I can relate! But the reason I chose it to kick off the Shake off the Haters month is because of the message it sends at the end. A very powerful point.
We are all different and may not fit into the cookie cutter image that society has made up.
Marty and Clara both have negative self images about themselves and think no one would have them. Yet it only takes one person to make a difference, and see them for who they really are, and that's each other.
I rate this 5 Lizas!!
This month we are dedicated to giving reviews and blog posts pertaining to bullying and how it can get better!!! We welcome anyone who wants to contribute their story or video! Our youth and even adults need to know that it is not what you are called that defines you, it is what you answer to! Be strong, be different! Shine your own light, and shake the haters off. When you are doing what makes you happy in life, then no one has the right to make you feel inferior. Stop the hate!! Spread the love, hope and all the good stuff!! Stay tuned for much more this month!!
