growing strenght by temmybanana growing strenght by temmybanana
for the spirit day.

i can't understand people who bully other people just because they're different. what's the matter? if you're not satisfied with your live go get a punchingball, but don't make other people be your punching ball!! if you wanna have some fun, why don't you go and watch some TV, there are lots of shows being much more funny than the existance of other humans. if you want to be a show-off or a gangsta having swag go and waste some money you stole from your parents, but don't prove your coolness being rude to other people! and if you're seeing someone being bullied don't fucking look away!! go and do something! they maybe need your help because they aren't strong enough themselves.

this event really confronted me with my past. i didn't have a pretty nice time in middle-school; imagine a shy, very small, anorexic-looklike girl that's cross-eyed, has no idea what's modern and does not know anybody in her totally knew class except a few stupid idiots from elementary school who started everything. 5th to 7th grade have been horror to me. then i had to change into the french-class; 8th & 9th grade. i started watching anime, wearing black and acting emo; they continued and even became worse. i had surgery for my right eye which was the reason i was cross-eyed; at least they stopped asking who i was looking at. the only good thing that happened back then was the fact that i got to know my best girlfriend (left puppet). then i had to repeat the 9th grade, hoping everything would become better. but because i dressed like a guy, didn't really know anybody and was too shy to change that, i continued being alone; at least they didn't bully me anymore; but igrnoring nearly was the same. second 9th grade also has been a hard time for me, i had lots of arguments with my mom (left puppet) and felt very depressive, what changed when i met my best friend ~MentleJan (puppet in the middle); he always knew how to make me happy, helped me a lot and with him i got lots of new friends. summer vacation between 9th and 10th grade changed everything; bff excaped the friendzone (yes that fucking IS possible!!) and became my bf (that's a year ago now). he was the reason i became happy, again, and i'm so grateful for that. 10th grade was great, i sozialized more and more with my class and ended middle school with an optimistic feeling. now that i came to high school and compare myself with my younger self i have to admit i changed a lot; i'm still shy, but i can talk to people without being stupid. i'm so grateful i had great friends who got me through these hard times because i don't know what would've happened if i didn't meet them. thank you so much.


the picture simply shows my younger me on the left (about 13/14 yo) and myself now, who's holding puppets of the people that got me through this -> bff, bf and mom.

Including your greatest supporters as dolls, such a cute idea! I'm glad that you're able to look back on your harsh experiences in a positive way.

This looks amazing. You forgot one spacing in your text 'you'reseeing' and you said left puppet twice though. ;) I know exactly what you went through I was bullied for 3 years straight, and not the wedgy kind but full up getting beat up on a daily basis. I was shy and ignorant and didn't know how to defend myself. Nobody helped me though, I had to fight through it myself. Changed schools and at that turning point I started becoming goth. Listening to metal, growing my hair and dressing black and a long leather coat. On my new school I finally had the guts to make a reputation and stand up for mysekf and made lots of friends...nobody really helped me though, not even the school who KNEW what the fuck was going on. Anyway this drawing really looks amazing!

thank you <3 (edited it :3)
yes, changing school or just class can make a big difference :) and i noticed that teachers really give a fuck about bullied pupils; even though they always say "tell us if you're having any problems!!"

I know, that bs about the school saying you have to tell them so they can help pisses me off. My parents didn't really appreciate it either. XD Most teachers knew, no one cared.
