This was the time of my life when I was being violently bullied! It was the scariest time of my life! I would become so sick before I entered my school. I would throw up & had so much stomach pain, headaches. I couldn't stay focused. 😶 One day I got tired! I ignored the words until it become violent & was stabbed with a pencil😡 Don't ever suffer in silence if someone is violating your space. 😶 I am chubby, dark skin, natural hair, shy, super smart all reasons to be bullied!☹ This is why I go hard to help people understand it's not acceptable to bully. Now I deal with the grown up cyber bullies. 🙄 I am blessed to be alive because my mom DrReba Renee Perry-Ufele & many people helped me. I am here & can talk about it!. It still cuts like a knife. 🤨 When you see me & I am silent it's because I am still healing from my battle wounds!😇 Parents teach your kids not to bully!☹ I forgive every child that have bullied me!🙂 #drrebareneeperryufele #girlscanchangetheworld #divadynastymagazine #divadynastymanagent #youngoprah #bullychasersshow @Blackgirlsrock @owntv @theellenshow @iamsteveharveytv @steveharveyfm
