Hey everyone! This is a collab with Rosie (who has been amazing to me throughout the past month) and I’ll link her blog at the end.
2016 for me, has been probably one of the worst years of my 12 years on Planet Earth. You might think I’m being dramatic, but I’m not.
I have been bullied quite a lot during my life. It first started when I was 5 years old and it was because of my…..weight. I have grown now to love myself and my body but it hurt me a lot and I just wanted to die so it would be over. I also suffer from Erb’s Palsy in my left shoulder. Erb’s palsy is a paralysis of the arm caused by injury to the upper group of the arm’s main nerves. Although I wasn’t bullied because of it, I was more so excluded from things because of it. I couldn’t do skipping or play football because my arm couldn’t rotate fully to support a skipping rope and I couldn’t hand-pass a football because there wasn’t enough power in my arm to do it. Life’s just hard, ya know? Thanks 2016, thanks a lot.
In the past few months, I’ve discovered that I actually get on better with the boys in my class, because I’m into games like GTA, FNaF, Fifa and things like that. Also YouTubers like jacksepticeye (aka Seán) and Markiplier (aka Mark) have helped me to get on with some of the boys in my class. All I’m saying is that don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone, and talk to someone who you would never talk to on a day to day basis because you could have a LOT more in common than you think.
When everyone in my class found out about the Instagram account for my blog, it was all they talked about on the group chat we have. One of the boys reckons that I use an app to get my followers, when you know that’s not true. I haven’t talked to any of them in a long time because I feel so much more like myself when I’m on my other account. Talking and collabing with you all brings such joy to my day and I hope you all continue to support me for another while.
I just want to say thank you for all you have done for me over the past month. You have changed my life so much. Can I just add that I am so close to 300 followers on my Instagram!?! WHAT!?! That is INSANE! Never in a bajillion years would I have ever thought that it would be possible. Thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart.
Say goodbye to 2016, and hello to 2017!
