The thing is, everyone I see has people behind them. People backing them up, people they can go to, cause they have them. Everyone deserves that. To have someone who’s just there for you. In the face of adversity, you find out who your true friends are. Who are the people who care.
To the people who think that going home can temporarily keep you safe from the bullying, well, you’re wrong. Bullying doesn’t stop just because the perpetrator is physically a certain distance from you. You can break someone without even having to be there. In life you can run from shelter, but you won’t know for sure who your enemies are. A bully can be a mean kid at school. So if you’re done with school, you’ll never have to put up with that person again. But school makes it apparent. At school, you’re able to easily recognize who are the bullies, who are the enablers, who are the people standing up for you. At home, everyone is related to you. They are people you trust. You put your life in their hands. When you rely on people, it makes it difficult to recognize if they are bad for you. You can easily let yourself be bullied if you can’t recognize who the bullies are. If you can’t distinguish the people you can trust, and the people who really care about you.
It’s always nice to have company. But don’t put more value to it than it actually has. It may not be worth as much as you think.
