Personal Narrative: My Life Has Been Simple In Middle School

Improved Essays
My life has been simple in middle school, I never had trouble making friends, but it was very hard to keep a friend for a long time. I always end up fighting with my friends. I didn 't only fight my friends, I sometimes even fought people that I didn 't know who the were. I was the type of girl who always got in trouble for the stupidest thing. For example one day I was going to the bathroom and the girl in front of me slapped the door at me, but the door never hit me, I still walked up to her and said "try me one more time" as I pulled her jacket. We both got in trouble and spend the day in school suspension. I was not the only trouble maker in my family, my sisters also got in trouble. In middle school, I used to ride the bus with my sisters …show more content…
This is when hit me, all this time I was using "self-defense" as an excuse to get out of trouble. Everything was clear to me, I now understood why I was getting all these chances from the principal. Everyone who cared about me gave me chances to better myself and choose the right path. I broke into tears because I understood, everyone who gave me a chance cared about me and I was dumb enough not to see it. I realized that all my older siblings turned themselves around when they went to high school. I also realized that everyone who saw ugly side had faith in me that it was never too late to change. After my mom asked me that questions, I started to question everything I did, all the fights I fought alone or with my siblings. I spend the day crying and apologizing to my mom, she said "I forgive you, but first learn to forgive yourself". The next day, I went to school hoping to open a new chapter in my life. I start the day with a positive attitude and a big smile. Some of my friends started to judge me and said mean things like "is today an opposite day?", I tried to ignore them, I guess some people hate seeing others happy. Everything was over when a girl who I fought before said "did you forget to take your pills?", these little words destroyed my day. It was impossible to ignore something like this. Imagine the person you hate on this earth said these words when you are trying really hard to be nice. I felt like it impossible to speak or breathe, as if her words were choking me, the only way I was going to breathe was attack her, so I walked up to her and pulled her hair and a fight broke out. At that point I started to hate everyone especially people like her who always have something against people who are happy. I never knew being happy can

    August 2013 was the beginning of a long, painful lesson on loving my enemies, the consequences of hatred, and how to forgive. It all started as an aggressive girl who had no leash on her tongue, but quickly escalated to physical assault. I was terrified and hid everything for fear that she would lash out at me. But as the weeks progressed, the physical, verbal, and mental harassment only got worse. Up until the bullying, I really never had to forgive anyone.…

    I got followed home, blocks of wood thrown at me, pinched, shoved, and screamed at on a regular basis but I never hid who I was. Even after transferring to an online school, I still got followed home and hate spat at me as I walked the street going home. I remember one of the teachers there telling me I was so bright and outgoing even with everything going on. Before I dropped out of school, she told me she believed that I could do amazing things in life as long as I kept to it. Dropping out of high school was probably the most relieving thing of my life but also the scariest.…

    Overall, the hardest thing I had to deal with, was the ridiculous people around me. I respected them, but there are some materials the teacher is trying to teach, and I always get distracted from my classmate. My English teacher back in my sophomore year even had to ask the resource officer to come and observe the class and talk to any student that act up No teacher must ever have to ask their resource officer to observe their class. This just shows how immature students are. However, I wasn’t going to let that stop me, and still progress through my school years.…

    Did they even know how it felt being the victim? Instead of fighting back and getting violent with these girls, I told my counselor exactly what was going on immediately and just reminded myself to smile and pray for them each and every day. As the school year continued, I got involved with school clubs to take my mind off of that situation. Later that year those same girls had come to me and apologized and wanted to be my friend again. God truly worked in mysterious and magnificent ways that year!…

    Why did I do bad stuff in the first place? In my head. I feel ashamed and embarrassed that I let my family down and especially my older sister. She’s the one that raised me and wanted me to do good she saw potential in me and she was very disappointed that I threw all of it away in the garbage. Thankfully I graduated high school and applied for a community college and ever since then I’ve worked really hard on my graded and stopped hanging out with the wrong group of friends and instead replaced them with friends that actually care about me and who motivates me to do better.…

    She had forgotten about Norma, but when it was announced that she was pregnant and kicked out of school for it, Norma became even less of a role model for Sonia. The last event that had Norma let Sonia down was probably the most significant one; they met and talked, then Sonia saw what Norma had become. She had essentially become a role model of what not to be. Sonia even cried on the spot. To summarize, Sonia liked and looked up to Norma because she was the only one who talked to the “pip-squeaks” in middle school, and she even personally helped Sonia with her homework in from of the whole class, saving her family trouble.…
