Well considering I’ve always been overweight and almost obese when I was little I definitely was insecure about it. Especially since my sister was one of the main people who bullied me about it.
I had good girl friends in elementary school though, because when there were rumours of one girl, rather not say who, saying that I was the fattest person at school, my friends and I confronted her and she just said “yeah, I think Corinne is really fat” THANK YOU FOR THAT.
Two other people who bullied about me on my weight was Dustin and Dominic from my elementary school. Even after I lost 13 pounds in 6th grade after starting cheerleading, they continued to make fun of me calling me such names at ‘fat cow’ and saying that I was the fattest girl on the cheer squad (they played football in the same league that I cheered in). That made me the most upset, because if both guys and girls were saying this about me, who could I confide in?
Something funny is that after losing a bit more weight and years gone by, I started my conformation classes in 9th grade, both Dustin and Dominic were in my class and didn’t even remember any of this. Well they didn’t even remember me, they probably didn’t even connect the dots. So they were all nice to me and even tried flirting with me. That bugged me so fucking much. Like you were so cruel to me in elementary school and now you’re trying to be all buddy buddy? no. I’m not letting that fly past me.
But now that I’ve somehow managed to lose even more weight and got taller, I feel a lot more comfortable. I’m willing to wear things that I wouldn’t even consider to wear, or was forced to by my mom when I was little, such as dresses and shorts because my legs would get made fun of.
That’s one of the reasons why I love Demi Lovato so much, because I can relate to her bullying story so much. It makes me so upset that people can be so cruel to people just because they’re a little bit different. I can’t help but get really emotion when I hear or read about when she talks about that.
And I just realized that’s probably another reason why The Hunchback of Notre Dame was one of my favorite movies growing up because I could relate to Quasi :l
oh cheezus, this is so freaking long.
reblogging because this is relevant in my life again.
