Chapter 4-Suddenly I became me
By: Nicole Neal

I don’t remember when I came out as me...the real me. I remember when I went to a place to help me with my depression, and other things. while I was there I learned how to accept myself and to love myself for who I am. I was hiding in the shadows for 9 years not getting out there or not socializing to people I didn’t know to make friends. Whenever I had a group project I wouldn’t talk in my group, and i would ask to be in somebodies group. I just let people walk all over me all of the time. I used to be bullied when I was younger. I have also been a bully but I had stopped and apologized to that one boy I dissed on so much in the first grade. I was never a bully again. I don’t like to think of the past much but i’ll share what I can. I never had many friends when I was little, I never really talked to people. i let people talk bad about me all of the time. I wore glasses in second grade and people made fun of me for that so i guess i broke them. People never understood me for who I was. I was afraid to be who I was because i knew that if I got bullied by not doing anything at all, why start saying things when it could only just get worse. I never told anybody, I remember coming home sometimes crying. I had only 1 friend I went to school with and 1 friend that didn't go to my school yet. My only school friend’s name was Brittaney Becker. We had been friends ever since 1st grade, till she moved in 4th grade. So after 5th grade it got a little better, and I would come out as myself a little bit more because I had a little more friend than I had. But some point in time reaching my freshmen year in highschool, I went downhill again. I was always depressed and angry at myself. I hated who I was, and I didn't like myself at all. My mom helped me by sending me for help at a mental institute. In only 8 days I loved myself and wasn't depressed anymore I wasn't shy and to this day I am not afraid to speak up or talk to random kids. Im not afraid to be me and make friends. today, I have more friends than I ever had. Im satisfied with my life. And thats the time I suddenly became me.
