I was bullied for being different. And because I kept mum, it slowly killed me from within.

I am a highschool girl. Highschool, is the place where people are obsessed about who has the new phone, the trendiest dress with that designer label or the coolest car. All they want is making out and being all “pretty” to be popular, to “fit in”.

I was never like one of them. I loved books, instead of partying, wanted to stick to one guy instead of kissing tons of boys, never really cared about what I wore or whether I had to put on makeup or not. For this, I was bullied.

I never talked to anyone about it. People kept on taunting me, teasing me for not being like them, I used to come home and cry myself to sleep. No one noticed it; because I was silent. And slowly, slowly, I started losing my self confidence, my self esteem. I started hating myself, put down the mirror in my room because I didn't want to look at myself.

And now, I only regret that if I had spoken up, and not kept silent, maybe it wouldn't have made me so depressed and anorexic. Maybe the bullies would've been punished. Maybe the school would have been a better place, for others like me; but no, I decided to remain silent. And that has let me astray.
