The Day I Met Me Narrative

Good Essays
I’ve come a long way to get to this point. If you had met me five years ago, two years ago, or about six months ago, you would never think this is how I would be now. Let’s take it back to the fifth grade; I had one friend and I never talked to anyone. That was the year I met my best friend, Alyssa. Before her and I became friends, I never talked to anyone because I was the weird kid that shied away from everyone.. I know that sounds like some sappy sob story but it’s very true.

I guess that was the only way I saw fit to cope with that kind of …show more content…
I constantly bounced back and forth from my grandmother, to my mom, to my dad. When I lived with my mom, we moved around a few times. I one point in time, we all lived with my grandmother on my mom’s side in her two bedroom apartment. I had to live with my mom for most of that time period because my dad’s girlfriend at the time hated me, so he decided it was best I not live with them. Which obviously made my day to day functioning a lot harder. As far as my social life went, I didn’t hang out with anyone ever. I still don’t. I really just like to keep to myself, but I’ll admit, it does get lonely sometimes. It definitely did back then,

    Sometimes I felt like it was somehow my fault and that I should have tried to help the situation. Other times I felt angry that they would do this to my sisters and I.

They would also crack jokes about me which wasn’t the best, but the…

    I never really liked school, even from the very beginning I completely dreaded going. Not only did I hate it for the school work and getting up early, it was because I was bullied for the longest time. Even in high school I was teased, but instead of to my face it was behind my back but I wasn’t ignorant to what they said about me. I was teased for everything, my hair, my weight, and the way that I dressed. I was always different than everyone else.…
