Bullying, I think, lends itself to the individual dealing with deeper core issues of insecurity, bitterness, jadedness and self-hatred (fun emotions, right?)

My high school was about 400+ in my class and daily... yes daily.. I'd walk into my homeroom, which was Student Council (since I was class Vice President), where I'd be cussed at with the same phrase "You're F**&IN' sick" by the same person with the same cocky eyebrows to her forehead expression and a demeaning piercing glare of hatred. She spewed evil at me since our 9th grade year when a boy she liked dated me and continued until a few months before senior year graduation.

Here's the crazy miracle twist: Our senior year, she and I got stuck in a photo lab dark room together for 10 min by ourselves. I nearly fainted with nausea when I realized what I just walked into (and couldnt leave because of the rules of the darkroom)... Being a confident leader in high school, in midst of being scared of being punched... I pulled up my big girl pants and I prayed for the right words to say to begin conversation.. by the end of the day, a miracle happened.. word spread across the school that she no longer hated me and "Jenn Gotzon is cool." Here's the real miracle: the night before in a youth group called Young Life, we were encouraged to pray for our enemies.... I refused stubbornly because this girl made my life a daily hell in high school... so my friends prayed on my behalf for her.. the next day the bullying stopped.
