Smile Howdy! - September 14th 2011, 07:20 AM

Hey everyone!

My name is Jessica. I am 22 years old and from Canada. I'm not quite sure why I decided to join this site, but I'll give you a little bit of history on myself.

I moved to a new province when I was 10 years old. I had lived in a small town and grew up there, and had lots of friends. I moved to a large city, and didn't necessarily fall into the cool kid trends. I was from the country.. pretty slack out there. Anyway. Long story short, after I moved here, bullying started right away. Mind games, physical bullying, mental, emotional.. you name it. They eventually started doing it online too. A group of people I had considered friends, and for some reason, still clung to hope that one day it would stop and they would be my friends again. After 3 years, I wound up having to change school divisions and start fresh.

I guess the reason I am here to see if there's any advice and support I can offer others who are in the shoes I walked in years ago. I'm still young, and what happened in the past is still fresh in my mind. I don't dwell on it, but I can still remember what it feels like and try to help others.

Don't be afraid to ever message or email me if you want to chat about anything. I don't like the thought that this goes on every day and that the people it happens to think just like I did - that there's no way things will be getting better. But they will.

Stay strong and carry on! Keep those heads held high.

Jessica

Hey there Jessica and welcome to TH! It sounds like you've been through a lot, and even though like you say, it's still fresh in your mind, you seem like a really strong person and it's really good to have you here so I hope you enjoy what you find. The site has so many different features. As well as the support forums we have a LiveHelp and HelpLINK systems where you can recieve help from our staff members, the blogging system and of course the chat room which is a great place to relax and get to know others on the site! Take a look around and make yourself at home and if you get stuck anywhere feel free to give someone a shout! There'll always be someone willing to help!

I try my best. But I do have my bad days, just like everyone else.
