Bullying Discrimination

“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked,
ut it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.”
― Michael J. Fox

So much has changed for me these last few years, as I recovered from my youth bullying damage. I went from being a blamer for the card I was dealt as a youth, to accepting that which I could not change. Tim shares a brief part of the pain of today’s youth bullying due to a discriminatory factor, such as not being an athlete. No one deserves to be bullied for being different, unique, and themselves. I know the damage this causes, when a bullying victim tries to change who they are to please others. Always stay true to your authentic self. While it may be hard at times, this too shall pass, and we want to be accepted for who we really are. Especially be our own self. ~Alan Eisenberg

antfingerMy name is Tim, from elementary school through middle school and high school I was bullied because I wasn’t very athletic and for some reason that was looked down upon by classmates, friends, and even teachers (mostly gym teachers) would discriminate me for being not as athletic as other boys in my class.

Its hurt me being called mean hurtful names online and even to my face. I just don’t get these people’s logic. Making fun of someone because they prefer to read or draw and not play sports it just doesn’t make sense. That’s why I want to stop people from bullying others for their differences because at the end of the day we are different but we have to accept others no matter if they are different than us.
