Day 20 - A Difficult Time In Your Life

I suppose the hardest time was when I was at school. Up till I was 9/10 life was great. I had fun, friends and enjoyed it. Then with another school change I met up with bullying ... something that I had never met before.

Hard to describe what it was like, but mainly I was teased for my faith, my glasses, my willingness to obey, etc. The thing that was the hardest was that every time I tried to be friendly I was isolated.

The girl who was the ring-leader moved schools with me, so for the next 5 years that continued ... by my 6th form, things were easier as she left. Add to that an English teacher who told me I was useless and an art teacher who told me I was weird that I didn't know colour (yes, I'm colourblind ... which was discovered when I was 9), all in all school days were not the "happiest days of my life."

It's left me with a real isolationist attitude - which is hard to shake. LJ has done wonders for me, in that I have friends here ... something I have had little knowledge of in RL. (Yes I do have a couple of good friends, but only over the last few years)

Anyway - we all have bad times, nothing takes those away - but we get through them. As my Grandmother used to quote -

"Here we suffer grief and pain, over the road they are doing the same"
