Exclamation I feel trapped ! - January 28th 2013, 12:03 AM

Me, I have not exactly been bullied as a child, I had many and good friends that we used to spend a lot of our time together. One of them one day called me patate because as he said my head looks like potato :P. At first I was not accepting it as nickname but unfortunately I got used to it by time and it wouldnt bother me. The problem started when we got older and started making new friends, they used to call me patate in front of every new person that i met and everyone used to know me as patate, many of them didnt even know my name. It got so bad cause I wasnt a child anymore I was 18 but they wouldnt understand how i felt, and they kept going with that nickname, even one day i was with my girlfriend and a guy that i bearely knew shouted at me "hey patate" how are you doing.. It was so terrible feeling for me, the next day i broke up with my girlfriend and i told my parents that i wanted to move to another country and so I did. I got over it by time.. but when i went to visit my family after five years something terrible happened to me that changed my life for ever i will never feel proud of myself again i think. we went shopping me and my parents and at the super market one guy ( not really a friend of mine) saw me and in front of my parent he said : "hey patate where are you" it killed me, my parents didnt know that i was called this way until that day. the worst is that i said hi to him too instead of beating him to death. My parents never talked about it with me but it kills me everytime im with them i think only of that moment. Now I asked many times everyone not to call me patate anymore cause im not a child but they dont understand. every time i go to meet my parents the same problem.. I am making plans to kill everyone who knows me or at least 10 of them one day. I cant even be in a relationship cause i feel worthles and not the proud guy that i used to be. is the worst thing to know that i cant be proud of myself again. What can I do to feel good about myself again instead of killing them all one by one ?

Hello, sir! First off, let me just say that you are not worthless and that you are on this Earth for a reason and you have a lot to look forward to in life. Secondly, since your friends didn't understand you when you asked them to stop they aren't really your friends. It's all good man, there are plenty of people out there who want to be your friend and invest time in you.

Hey mate,

You're old enough to know murder isn't a solution to anything, it actually makes it worse for you. Fighting doesn't sort anything either, give people a reaction and they'll continue.
Moving away was a good move on your part, and it is bad when a situation gets out of control like this.
I'd suggest that you talk to people about it, explain exactly how you feel (I know that would be hard but it may help). I know sometimes shrugging things off and burying it inside is easier but when someone calls you by that term, tell them firmly not to call you that and that you'd appreciate them calling you by your name.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
