My name is Jennifer and i was bullied because i came from a household in poverty and my appearance. My family had decent jobs that paid the bills but we struggled financially every month. I could not afford designer clothes or shoes, had to shop at discount stores. I did not fit in well with most social cliques, i am a unique person and i was hated by some people in my community, which i think was not deserved. I am quite intelligent, was treated like i was dumb and comments behind my back. One friend in particular that i knew since grade school, i found out said rude comments behind my back. I've always been a strong person and good self-esteem, that is why i survived bullying. I say **** You! Bullies.

I grew up poor too and getting to go "school shopping" for new clothes was something I never got to participate in. I was bullies and left out because kids who dont even make their own money yet thought I wasnt good enough. I learned a lot from school and who my real friends are in life and it made me very thick skinned. Glad to hear you are alright my neighbor from the North.

Glad you overcame that cruelty. I was never rich or able to afford nice things, but my cousin who was a year older than I could. I would always get her hand me downs, which I felt was worse because people would know. Thank goodness that that cruelty gave us tough skin and taught us to appreciate and see things differently. #middlefingertothebullies

When you are an adult and you think back about a group of kids not liking you because of the clothes you wore you can laugh and think who the heck wants to be friends with people like that anyway
