I Was, Until One Gym Class Gave Me The Chance I Needed To Fight Back LegallyEver since I can remember, I was bullied in high school. Their goal; because they knew that I had a bad temper, they would do all sorts of stuff to push my buttons and make me lose it. For a while, I always ended up in the principal's office. And if I didn't end up there, I'd be given an in-school suspension in a separate room watched over by the wife of one of the teachers (she served as a substitute teacher when needed). That lasted until my freshman year.
Our gym class was doing a class on wrestling. I was put up against one of my bullies. At the beginning, he was goofing off. But what he didn't know, was that I was part of the wrestling team the year before. So when I saw an opening for a takedown, I took it, and picked him up onto my shoulder, which caused him to yell out "Holy s**t!!!", before slamming him down onto the mat and pinning him. Even though he outweighed me by a good 60 pounds and I looked like a beanpole to him, he found out that I was a lot stronger than I looked. From that day on, nobody bullied me for a long time.
