They often say, the right path is the hardest
for you to follow. But the hard path is also the one that will make you stronger. My name
is Rebecca Pham and THIS is my story. A few years back, I was walking down the street.
A hooded man approached me kidnapped and raped me. Ever since that day, nothing has been
the same. Everything in my life changed. Leaving me all alone. Until the day my parents found
out. They interrogated me and I finally gave in. They thought I was irresponsible, careless
and just plain stupid. That was when I confessed that I was actually raped. I was an idiot
to think that they would actually support me. So I used my last resort and told my best
friend, praying for at least one ounce of sympathy. Unfortunately, nothing came. So
I ditched school. I hated how everyone just looked at me as if I was some alien. Is this
what I really deserve? The bullying dragged on into cyber – space. I was ready to slam
my phone against the wall, ready to give up hope and lose. Lose to them all. There wasn’t
anything left for me. I was on my own. No support, no sympathy. But then, I saw the
light. Someone had finally understood what I was going through. People began to support
me. Although I was still bullied, I wasn’t alone anymore. I was saved. Here’s the bottom
line when it comes to bullying: DON’T. Growup and accept what makes someone different
to you. Because its a good thing. THey are not going to all one-eighty overnight, grow
a few centimeters, gain a beautiful face and turn into Miranda Kerr. They’re humans too.
They have proper feelings and words like ” You’re ugly ” means something to them. Even the slightest
cracks of inconsiderate words can have a catastrophic effect. Bottom line: Don’t Bully.
