When I was in Primary School, I was often teased about my size, but I always kept a positive attitude no matter how much it hurt inside as I had good friends and I was a smart kid!
Oh my! Scarlett, yellow is a great color, but it doesn't look very nice on you....it kind of makes you look fat.
I like my shirt because yellow is my favorite color and my mom bought this for me! I treasure this shirt a lot.
I like this outfit more than yesterday's one!
Blek! Ugly much...
But when I entered middle school, everything changed. I went from having many friends and creating social clubs to barely graduating at all because I was absent so much. I had insomnia, experienced 7 deaths within my close family AND internalized all the teasing I experienced in elementary school...
"You look so ugly, HIDEOUS"
"No makeup will ever save how ugly you look..."
I look so hideous and unattractive! Others' must-see me the same way as I see myself...I'm a monster.....
"YOU'RE SO FAT"
Does everyone really think this about me?
She's so weird...
Yeah, I know right...what's wrong with her?
Hey Lola, look at that kid~~~
I can hear them whispering...
BAHAHA! She's so weird :D
Since my mom has been working in the mental health field, this self-help plan that uses the inside knowledge of one's self will help me stay on the road to recovery. After all the failed suicide attempts, a good bad relationship and a child to open my eyes into using this plan, I'm sure it will work.
Thank you to all these people, who I call "angels", for helping me. But the person who inspired me the most, is my precious baby girl... <3
I now work an awesome organization that is amazing in the field of mental recovery, stigma elimination and advocacy. I'm so glad that my recovery has allowed me to work in the mental health field and provide education and insight on the possibilities of wellness and recovery.
