I've recently returned to live in the place I grew up in since leaving my ex who was subjecting me to domestic violence. I was bullied at school, abused by my mother, and had other traumas and then had domestic violence for over a decade. What's in the local newspaper headlines? A girl at my old school (aged 13) is being bullied, poked, prodded, tripped up, followed home by a group of boys who are also cyber bullying her. Reading it I had a major panic attack, flashbacks, it was horrible. That school was full of asshole bullies 20 years ago and has fresh ones now and a fresh victim my heart goes out to her, she, like I - has no evidence of the bullying so the police can't do anything. I feel sick, disgusted, and angry as hell. I wish I could help her. I hate that such humans exist. In a way, it's kind of validating too, but it's mostly making me sad and angry.
