In middle school I learned there is a very thin line between mean girl and victim. I was teased a lot because I was much taller than all the other kids (and many of the teachers). In turn I teased other girls in a bid to seem coolers. I hated myself for it and found myself apologizing when the “cool” girls weren’t around. Eventually I had to accept the fact that those girls weren’t my friends and I gave up trying to make them be my friend. In giving up that chase, I found a group of girls who would be my friend through middle school, high school and college (some…).
