I was bullied all my life and I did not know why I was being bullied. I remember I was bullied in High School so much that I just did not want to go to school. But one day I said to myself, “Enough is enough”. I decided to write a book about my life, “Growing Up with a Disability.”
I wanted people to know my life story and to spread the word about being kind to other people. Also, everyone has a story to tell and it is not ok at all to bully other people. I always felt alone because I thought no one would understand me, but I was wrong. A lot of people care.
I am so proud of the first book that I wrote because it tells the story through my eyes and what I went through. I learned the best lesson of all. It is ok to be you and if people don’t understand it is not your problem. I used to care what people thought about me, but I don’t care what other people think about me now.
I am myself and I am not going to change myself for other people. We all need to learn to be kind to each other and that everyone is unique in their own way.
