In high school, I was teased for a number of things. My name, the way I dressed, and for my love of reading and learning. I didn’t have many friends for this reason, but now I’m 21 years old, and living life to the fullest. What changed? I did. I realized after years of always being afraid, that it was okay to be different. That I could be myself and that what others said/thought didn’t really matter. What really mattered was that I was comfortable in my own skin. That I was happy, doing what I love.
