I thought my first offical post would be a back story of my life and how I came to be me today. I overall had a pretty great childhood full of fun and no worries in the world. This lasted until second grade where things changed for me.
Not to sound concided or anything but I was a cute kid and being cute brought some unwanted attention. There were some boys at this age that started to notice girls in a different way. I had two boys that would not leave me alone. The first one would follow me around during recess and claim he loved me and wanted to marry me. I wan’t nothing to do with this boy! I just wanted to just go play with my friends. I would cry to my teacher and all she told me was that I was a pretty girl and I had to get use to the attention.
Now something happened with the second boy that I would say changed me. This boy sat next to me in class and would slip his hand into my pants touching my butt inappropriately. I don’t know if he knew what he was doing was wrong but I knew I didn’t like it. It bothered me so much that I would cry every moring and beg my mom not to take me to school. This lasted about a week or two until finally my mom caught on and figured out something must be going on that I didn’t want to go to school. So I finally told her that their was a boy that was bothering me but never told her the specifics(him touching me). Had a teacher parent conference with my mom and the mother of the kid and I was moved away from the boy and never had issues with him after that.
This was an eventful year for me and I believe this is where my personality changed. Instead of being this outgoing little girl I became reserved and shy. For years I never though of this certain event ever having such an impact on me or did I ever consider myself being sexually harassed at such a young age. But it makes sense now and I need to accept that it is what happened and what affects it had on me.
Overall this was the begining of many changes that many kids go through when growing up but what I talked about today is where it all started.
Remember to be forever different! ❤
