A Letter To My Old Bullies

Dear Bullies,

Some of you may actually see this, who knows. Maybe you’ve gotten rid of those thoughts in the past. They’re just little things in school that happened when you were young that didn’t make the cut in being lasting memories. Unfortunately, I am unable to say the same. I wish that I was able to say being bullied didn’t make the cut. I wish I could say that those harsh words didn’t make a lasting impression on me throughout my life. Whether it was elementary, middle, or high school…you each made it in my brain as a memory not to be forgotten. As much as I wish I could forget as easily as people may think I should, it doesn’t work that way.

I remember each time I walk by a group of people and they’re giggling.

I remember each time that I look in the mirror at my body.

I remember each time I suddenly get defensive when I think my stuff is about to be taken.

I remember each time I try to love myself but I just…can’t.

But just know, you bringing such lasting bad memories didn’t bring all bad to my life…whether that was your goal or not. These memories may have helped in tearing me down , but they also aided in building me up. They formed me in to the fighter I am today, and I don’t mean physically.

I’m stronger now because of it.

I have a voice now that I didn’t have before.

I’m ready for any bullets that could be thrown my way and I’m prepared to throw them right back.

So dear old bullies although you may have brushed off your ways of the past, the memories of mine are what made me able to form what I might’ve never formed without these experiences..

Growth.

    • Thank you! Whether they see it or not, I know the growth I’ve made and nothing needs to be proved to them. But I do hope that they have grown from their old ways as they got older. Staying in that mean girl mindset can limit you from so much, so I wish them the best on their own personal growth journies. Thanks for reading ♥

    • Thank you. I appreciate your kind words. The power of words is very strong for sure, which is why I try my best to be as positive and motivating on my platform. Thank you for reading and commenting ♥

    • Thank you. Whether they read it or not, I was glad to get it out for myself and for anyone out there who has gone through bullying themselves. Thank you for reading and commenting ♥

  1. This was a great, yet touching read. You are strong, bold, beautiful, and have defeated the odds. Keep killing them with success! You are more than a conquerer and your strength is amazing! Heaven is the limits!

  2. I am so sorry that you were bullied. It really is the worst and it does stay with you for a long time. But you are right. You do become stronger from it! Thanks for sharing this inspiring and powerful post!

    • Thank you love. Some people think that just because you were a child when it happened, you should be over it, but that’s not the case. Thank you so much for reading ♥

    • Thank you love. I’m hoping that others who were bullied are able to read this and feel inspired and empowered to either write their own letter or just to know that they’re not alone. Thank you so much for reading ♥

  3. Another of your posts I can strongly relate to. Although my bullies were outside of school. Good to know their power lost its severity. It’s difficult because no matter how much I try to think positively, their poisonous words seep through at times. Venting definitely helps though. I’m not good with confrontation but writing lets me release the anger and hurt 🙂

    • This is definitely one of those posts that I wish wasn’t so easily relatable too, because no one deserves to go through bullying, but I’m glad that I can show others they’re not alone. Words have that effect to come back in your mind, which is why it doesn’t matter when you were bullied. You are absolutely right about venting. I’m so glad that we both have found a space where we can vent and let out our thoughts. Take care of yourself love and thanks for supporting ♥

      • You write so well that it keeps me coming back. I may not always comment but I will be lurking, reading and enjoying your content. I actually admire how you put positive spins on things. When I write a lot of it is angry and negative but I suppose through that my mind clears and I’m able to feel good about myself again 🙂

        You stay well also during these stressful times and keep sharing your beautiful spirit 🙂

        • You’ve just made the entire rest of my year by saying that…thank you so much! I am so grateful to be able to produce content that makes you want to come back and read. My goal has always been to help others and it really does mean the world to me to know that I can/am getting to do that. We all have our own form of writing and if that’s what makes you feel good and you love the end result, then that’s all that matters! Thank you so much for always being so kind ♥

          • Aww you actually make me cry by saying that. I do love my writing and the more fictional sad/angry/lost fictional posts in particular that I compose makes me proud of how it’s evolving and my inner strength, which I never had before, so you’re very welcome and ((big hugs to you)). Sweet dreams

  4. This is so amazing and you so so strong and beautiful. I always look forward to your content showing up on my feed.

    I hate bullying so ooooo much! I’ve never experienced but my brother did when he was younger and my godson experience back in 2019 before the pandemic. It just just horrible! Some adults are quick to say “oh they are just kids and that how they play”. That is certainly not the way to play! The emotional damage cause by bullying is so detrimental.

    You are strength. Never forget it.

    • Thank you so much love for your kind words ♥. I hate that your brother and godson had to experience that. I would never wish for anyone to become bullied…it’s such an awful feeling. That’s definitely not how kids should play and it should be handled. Again, thank you for your kind words, I appreciate them ♥
