Keep on reading to find out my bullying story.
So today's post is going to be a little personal. Not like anything I have done before. I have finally decided to open up about why I stopped blogging and why I am back.
Before I start I would just like to tell you guys that it was a very difficult time for me and fortunately I have gotten past it. So lets begin...Back in October of 2012 I started getting very hateful messages through my Facebook page telling me that my blog had no future and I was the most ugliest person he/she had ever seen and just very hateful stuff in general. This person continued to send me about 16-20 messages per day. This went on for a week and then I blocked his/her ID and deleted the messages. I thought this was the end of it but it wasn't. I continued getting the messages but this time on my personal Facebook account. I didn't tell anyone about it instead I blocked the ID again. This person made about a dozen ids to harass me further. I kept on blocking them and pretending like I did not care but to be honest those messages really brought me down. This person found out my number somehow and continued to harass me through Text messages, Whatsapp and Viber. Finally I changed my phone number.
This isn't the first time I was bullied. I have been through this before. From Grade 1 all the way up to Grade 8, I was bullied on and off for one reason or another but to my advantage I have a very amazing mother who always helped me through situations like this. I never told her what was going on but she just knew that I was upset and she did whatever she could to cheer me up. If it weren't for my mother I would still be getting picked on. Now I am not going to get into the details about what happened next, lets just get back to the blogging issue.
Now I am going to tell you why I came back. When I stopped blogging I told everyone that I stopped because I was starting college and I wanted to focus on my studies. After the summer vacations started I had nothing but free time on
my hands and many people asked me why I didn't start blogging again. I was always too embarrassed to tell them why. One day I got a message from one of my blog followers saying she wanted to see a review of the Cazibe Pret line by Mahnoor Arbab. After a couple of days I got several messages asking me to do the same. So I thought " You know what one post won't hurt anybody" so I messaged Mahnoor and she gladly helped me out with the post. A couple days after posting that review the same person messaged me on Facebook and started hating on me again. Once again I ignored. My whatsapp was still connected to my old number but since I had blocked his/her number I couldn't see any of their messages. He/She started harassing me on whatsapp using another number. Their picture was of Daniel Radcliffe so I had no idea who it was but one day out of curiosity I unblocked the old number they used to harass me with and I found out who my bully was. For starters it was a SHE! Surprise Surprise! I bet everyone kinda figured that out already. This was the same girl who used to bully me back in 3rd and 4th grade. Yeah...pathetic? I know. My bully had returned but this time I didn't give a rats a**. I had tolerated enough from this person and i wasn't going to be scared anymore. So I texted her and I will put a screenshot of my message below.
After that this girl never contacted me in any way what so ever and I realized that just because this one person has still not grown up and still feels good by bringing me down doesn't mean I have to put up with it. So I decided to continue blogging.
Well that's it. That was my story. If you have been through anything similar please do tell me in the comments.
