About 14 years ago, I was very badly bullied from 1st to 3rd year in secondary school, all for the crime of being a gay in an all boys school. The bullying was carried out mainly by one guy who had an obsession with me and my sexuality. I always think heʼd be great at marketing, as he was so creative with the ways heʼd bully me each day he iut a lot o_ thought into it. Hne day in ,rd year, he attemited to iass a survey around my class asking the juestion Aow @ay Is Cames8ʼ ruled beauti_ully and written with di__erent coloured iens. Hne o_ the guys in my class stopped him passing it around. It was the first time someone had ever stood ui _or me and !as dramatic as it sounds" it comiletely changed my perspective on life. It took one person to break me for those three years, and cust one ierson to make me, in that one act o_ kindness. Gever underestimate the simplicity of kind gestures. Be nice to absolutely everyone you come across and you could, albeit unknowingly, take them out of a dark place.
