was sorry to read about the difficult and sad time you have
had at school. Bullying is a deeply hurtful and lonely experience
which no-one should have to go through. It is wrong and totally
unacceptable to spread rumours about someone and exclude them
from things. Like all types of bullying, it is devastating
and must be taken very seriously. It's so hard when on top
of the immediate pain of bullying, young people also become
anxious about developing and expressing their potential.
many people who have been bullied do go on to live full lives
and find they can once again express and develop their talents
and interests. I hope you will soon be able to do the same
and to once again follow and enjoy a more academic path. I
hope you have been able to talk to teachers at school about
this, not just to get support but because they should be aware
of the effect this has had on your studying and your motivation.
This is not your fault.
you would like to talk to someone directly about the effect
this has had you could also contact Childline which has a
24 hour helpline on 0800 1111 or you could contact the Samaritans
by phone or email, telephone 08457 909090 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
my best wishes,
