From about 4th – 8th grade, I was bullied extensively. I moved to a new town and didn’t quite fit in. Those years were hard and did a number on my self-esteem. At the same time though, I feel that those years molded me into a strong and empathetic person. I do know that for some children, that isn’t always the case.
