Aftermath - October 14th 2013, 03:31 AM

I was bullied for about 8 years from first grade to 8th grade and now I am in 11th grade and the traumas that I sustained throughout those 8 years still affect me in some way.Though I have gotten past some of the traumas the memories of the events that took place throughout those eight years take my confidence away. Many times I feel that my childhood was robbed from me because I never learned the social skills I needed at the right age and I have to learn them now and I have made an incredible amount of progress; however, my lack of confidence effects many aspects of my life from school to personal goals; from socializing to starting a relationship; I can never fully get the confidence to pursue what I want. Although I may show physical confidence sometimes in the inside I am a nervous wreck filled with sadness, frustration, and longing.

First off, I am so sorry you have been a victim to bullying. I'm glad to see your desire to recover, though!

Have you tried talking to a friend/family member/teacher/counselor about this? They might be able to bring a new insight to the table, and might be able to help you out. You could also try daily journaling, as this might help you better comprehend your emotions about your situation.

Remember to surround yourself with who you want to be! You are worth it and I'm sure with perserverance you can gain every ounce of your confidence back.

Hope I helped!

I love you to the moon and back.

Darling you are the only exception. ~Paramore ♡

My parents know how much I struggle with my traumas and i have gone to at least four psychiatrists; however, they don't help much and I also don't feel much trust towards them. I really want to put my past behind, but its incredible hard and I feel that it is effecting my ability to socialized like a normal teenager. I don't like going out very much and meeting new people and if I am in a social situation I tend to distance myself from the crowd. Some may say that it's shyness but in my case its not. I used to be very social and talk to everyone I saw but after all that happened, the fear of being hurt didn't let me have a normal childhood and now that I am in 11th grade I don't want it spoiling what little I got left of my teenage years.
