Bullied? Don't give up!

In third grade, my best friend, whom I knew from kindergarten, was in my class. We were very happy. In the beginning all went well, but then she’d often say mean things to me. It all had started when I was elected to be class representative. Maybe my friend was envious. Anyway, she stirred up the other kids against me.

By fourth grade it was so bad that all the kids in my class were against me. I felt really lonely and started to feel as if something was wrong with me.

One day I couldn’t take it anymore, and I talked to my mama about it. She comforted me a lot. When I stopped crying, she told me that God loves me and He loves the other kids. His love keeps me safe from envy so that nobody can cause trouble against me. She also said it is important that I stick with the Golden Rule and not fight with the same “weapons” as the others.
