“Etsy Admin, gay and straight, share testimonials of bullying, strife and wisdom gleaned from their teen years. To anyone struggling: we hear you.”
During my teenager years I was bullied for being a good student, wearing glasses, being different. They were hard years, but they have passed leaving me with a sense that there is noting better than being different unique and special. Kids are mean and they make fun of anything and everything that isn’t the norm. But to everyone who’s going trough this or went trough this in their life, it will only make you stronger. Value and cherish what makes you different, it’s those little things that people around you will grow to love and cherish in the future.
I second the Etsy Admins and say: We hear you! It gets better!
