    Water Under The Bridge

    I was bullied my entire childhood from age 5 to about 15. Looking back I realize I missed everything that made childhood fun like friends, parties, girls, excursion, sports. Well not everything, I became a prolific reader, I learned to love nature, I'd spend hours alone by...

    I was a very feminine little sissy boi

    who was bullied very badly and I couldn't help it that I was Born in the wrong body or Trans. Growing up I was so confused however it did make me a stronger person and now I am so very proud to be beautiful inside and outside!

    Because I'm bi, everyone thought

    that I was weird, and stayed away from me. They thought I was going to try to make them gay. Always calling me names, and singling me out. Just because I am bisexual, doesn't mean that I go after every girl or boy that I see.

    Okay, when I was little,

    I was bullied quite often. I'm almost too embarrassed to say why because till this day, I still hide it. I know I shouldn't hide it and just accept myself but getting bullied hurts really bad.
