One of my teachers showed me this video today in class, and it was probably one of the most beautiful and terribly relevant things I've seen on YouTube. I can relate to the whole "Pork Chop" thing because when I was younger, I was called Smeagol, or Golem, mainly because all of the other kids thought I was ugly. I would go home crying almost every day, and one day it got even worse. My grandfather had shot himself, and he was slowly dying on life support. With this, I burst into tears, and I came to the school the next day a blabbering mess, reluctant to go. One day, I was approached by a boy, who asked me what was wrong. He acted like his intentions were good at first, but I soon found out that after I had told him about my Grandfather shooting himself, he went around school telling [i]everyone[/i]. Kids would walk up to me saying, "Hey Julian, POW." and pull the trigger of a fake gun up to their head. I went home an held a knife to my neck that day. I couldn't do it. I was only eight years old. I'm doing much better now. I'm generally happy, and I have great friends who would die for me. I've realized since then that life is beautiful, and you just have to enjoy all of the little things that make you overlook the bullshit. So, on that note, share your stories. Were you bullied ever, and how did you deal with it? Also feel free to share any funny, scary or interesting childhood stories.
