No, I think you're quite right, Kes. Which is why I've tried pushing myself into things I would never have thought to do, such as pushing myself out of my shell. A lot of it has to do with the pyschological aspect of it and how deeply bullying has affected us as persons though. In the end, we just try to live our life day to day. In other words, like I've mentioned earlier in the thread, I've used those experiences to better myself, and I wouldn't have mentioned them if it weren't for this thread as it's not something I often talk about or dwell on, and it's felt therapeutic in a way.
