Not any more (see post #53). Kids used to pick on me all the time and I used to internalize it but there was something else. It really wasn't about them. It was me. Once I focused on boosting my self awareness (esteem and worth) I was able to turn those challenges into opportunities. By high school, I was picked on less and less. I tried being the one who dished out the insults and I was good at it but at the end of the day I did not feel any better. I decided to be more understanding and aware. It worked.
