    No Family

    After the police found out that my father had been hitting me, I was put into foster care. That happened when I was 10. All of my foster parents gave up on me. They all said I was too rebelious and out of control. What did they expect? I was beaten and bullied my whole life. They...

    I get overwhelmed if there are other people in

    That Doesn't Mean I Like It

    Back in school, we had to do group projects.

    Nobody wanted me, or I was forced into a group. Even then, I was ignored and blamed for not doing anything even though they never told me what to do

    As much as I wish my friends would support me more often, I know they have their own problems to deal with.

    After a while of people not wanting to do

    anything with you unless they need you, you get used to being left out and have to get stuff done on your own. It's alright though it can only making you stronger
