It has been a very long time since I have been to school. My school days are a blur – I can’t remember too much of it. I also can’t really remember most of my class mates.
The thing I do remember is that I got bullied a lot. I think it was because I was dyslexic and quite shy. I hated school but I had one friend who use to stick up for me.
It’s funny – I was one of the tallest in the class and she was one of the smallest and I was the one being bullied. She was so confident and gave the bullies back worse than what they gave out. With her on my side I never got bullied again.
She is the only friend from school I still see now and today is her birthday. She is a person who speaks her mind which means sometimes it would come across as being a bit blunt. I however loved it because she said exactly what she thought. I never got offended. Without her my school days would have been miserable.
One thing I always remember is she used to tell me to stop pouting I replied “I’m not it’s just me” Nowadays people are always pouting and big lips are all in fashion. People even pay to have them now.
In those days big lips were not the thing at all. If you had them you’d be picked on for it and I did.
Recently though I have really started to notice them more. The thinner I am getting the bigger my lips appear!
When I was younger I was really embarrassed about the size of my lips and I was teased for it. Now, though, people want them. I think that being teased for something that you can’t do anything about, something that is part of you is a bit cruel. And they certainly don’t tease me now.
I think we need to accept the way we are no matter what size, height, shape or how we look because that makes us who we are. After all, like I said yesterday, beauty comes from within and it shouldn’t matter what you look like.
