Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been the kid who's considered a tomboy. I’ve always been the girl who goes fishing/hunting; playing sports, wearing baseball hats, embraces the outdoors.
I was the young child who wore basketball shorts and baggy hoodies. I had a boys bike, I always rode around town. I was the who known as one of the “guys." I had way more guy friends then friends who were girls.I wasn’t one who let the name calling get to me; I just brushed it off my shoulder and said “whatever, I don’t care what you call me.”
It never bugged me being called a tomboy until I had someone ask me if i was Bi-sexual because I rarely wore makeup and I wore baggy clothes; It wasn't until my freshman year of college that I started wearing tighter clothes. I still don’t wear makeup very often or do my hair, but when I do It still shocks people.
I may not have let the name calling get to me, but I still hated being the kid who was teased/ bullied, But at the same time I feel like it taught me a huge lesson; It taught me that being bullying definitely sucks and I want anyone to feel like they don't matter, so to those who bullied me about being a “Tomboy” thank you.
Thank you for showing me I never want to be the one who is bullying someone for what they look like or what they wear.. And most importantly thank you because if it wasn’t for you people bullying me I wouldn't be who I am without you.
