As some of you may know, bullying has been a huge part of my life. I have decided to share part of my story with you hoping to bring some awareness to this awful epidemic. for me, bullying started at a very young age. I was constantly teased about my appearence. In elementary school it was comments about being too thin or about my acne. Once I entered middle school I got diagnosed with scoliosis. I had to wear a back brace for the next year. One of the boys in my class would push me into lockers, knowing it was a struggle for me to get up cause of my brace. He would punch me in the back where my brace didn't cover my skin. He called me awful names & carved slut into my desk. The school did nothing. They put tape over my desk & ignored the abuse, I even got blamed for half of it. He lied, said I had kicked him & pranked called him. Eventually the school caught on to his shit & he was expelled. My bullying didn't end there.
Entering high school I still didn't have a group of friends, I was always the outsider, I felt alone. Still getting teased for having bad skin killed me, I wanted to rip my face off. Once 10th grade started I returned to school with a mohawk. I should of known my strict uniform wearing Catholic school wouldn't approve, but I didn't really care at that point. Kids would write things on my locker about how I was a poser, a fake, a loser. They would yell at me in the halls. I got called a Nazi. I had no friends. After a month of this abuse I started ditching class & developed a stronger relationship with self harm. Once my parents caught on I was removed from the school & put into treatment for self harm, depression & anxiety. Once I finished treatment I was able to start at a new school. This school was more excepting but I still had a hard time fitting in. School was never my thing. Once I graduated I finally started to feel like I belong. I made real friends & was able to make a career out of my writing. I wanted to be open about my life so people could relate & know they are not alone. It took me a long time to be able to feel comfortable in my own skin. I have turned to drugs, alcohol, self harm & eating disorders, trying to cope with my pain. In the end, the only thing that could help me was myself. I am now sober & living a healthy life. Yes, I have my ups & downs, but don't we all? Bullying is always around us. I am 23 and I still get harrassed online. The internet has made bullying so easy. They can just hide behind their computer and never deal with consequences.
ahh.. what a LONG weekend.. i am glad the week has begun.. i have a ton of exciting things happening this week like my visit to Jvalentine, where i will be interviewing josie stevens & nylon pink... i am finishing up my photo shoot with backstage clothing.. still need to do the look book & a behind the scene video.. AND i have my weekly parties at sayers club/lexington.. i am trying to LIVE in the moment.. my mind is all over the place.. i am thinking about the past.. i am worrying about the future.. i am focusing on events that haven't even happened.. i always go for the negative.. constantly thinking of the worst outcome.. convincing myself to not enjoy the moment but to be frightened of it.. constantly stressing.. with constant anxiety.. its a terrible way to live.. never enjoying the happiness that is right in front of you. no one is perfect. i still have a lot of work to do on myself.. but for now.. my first action will be for the moment.. to live in the moment.. embrace the moment.. and to be happy. there is NO reason to be upset over something that hasn't even happened.. maybe you can relate, maybe you can't.. just thought i'd put it out there in the universe..

felt like dressing up a bit today.. been wearing my pink hooded bear dress from the josie stevens collection.. the best part is the hands.. at the end of the sleeve there is a thumb hole & claws.. too cute! i feel like a cartoon character.. in other news.. i had a BIG reality check yesterday. sometimes the people you trust most are the ones fucking you over in the end.. i guess its hard to mix business & friendship.. i am done getting used. it's time to put my foot down are really open my eyes to what's going on.. i wish everyone could just be fair & actually mean what they say.. but hey, not everyone was raised with morals i suppose.. i should expect this with work.. i mean, nothing comes easy. if you want something you need to do it for yourself.. don't realy on someone elses words.. they will just take advantage.. ive seen this for years!!! anyways, i am probably not making sense.. i am just annoyed with certain work situations in my life.. but all is GOOD.. i am healthy, i am young, i am free.. have to focus on the good, right?
