Honestly, who wasn't picked on, teased, or bullied (whatever you want to call it!) in middle school? Good grief, kids can be mean and nasty to each other! Boys said ugly nasty things to me, also. Girls were little bitches when I was 12 and 13, as well. I didn't live with or harbor it for years and years, I got over it.
having a last name easily made fun of, and being one of the only 2 boys in my class with glasses, the other guy got it slightly worse, he had braces as well ......
you survive and move on, yeah it sucked, it was difficult
.... but a bully only has the power of YOU, that YOU Give them ....
