I left my private school when I was about eleven years old to go to a public school. The first year in this school was the most horrible year that a little girl could experiment in her life. I was bullied by other students. They used to call me "tomboy" "thin girl" "flat like plywood" "short" that I was talking as a white girl and that I was "ugly". So, I started to lose self-confidence. Those students hurt me so much that I started to hate myself and cry. I didn't know what I had done to them to deserve this. Nobody knew what I was going through at school. I remember one day after school, I went into my living room, sat on a chair, put my hands on the table and grabbed a mirror. Then I started to look at myself deeply and I said: "They will pay for what they did, I will go far in the world, I will be very beautiful and they will pay it with my success".
I would like to encourage you today. It doesn't matter how long it takes. Your dream will come true if you "Believe in yourself". The word of God says in Hebrews 11: 1 " Now faith is the firm assurance of things you hope for, a demonstration of things you do not see ”
At 11 years old, I had probably learned these words somewhere. But today I understand exactly what they mean. For 21 years, I kept in my mind the words that I confessed in my living room and acted as such. Now you tell me. If you still see a "tomboy" "thin girl" "flat like plywood" "short" and "ugly". And by the way! I have never been one. The devil is a liar. Believe in yourself, believe in God and don't listen to negative voices.
