I had been bullied as a teen and as a child.

I experienced bullying since I was a child. It all started when a female principal of a school I went to as a child skipped me two grades in 3rd grade. My mom let her skip me but I know it gave me social problems being two years younger than the other kids in my grade. I graduated when I was seventeen from high school. It made me feel good to be skipped though. I remember being fourteen when I was first hospitalized for early onset schizophrenia. I have been going to an adult partial care program since October 2019. I like the program and my case manager seems to like me too. Last Friday I was able to receive a special award with my name on it called the Peer Support award. I felt good about it. Today I feel stressed and kind of tired. I have decided to pray and turn to God when I have difficulties. I will pray and try to focus on God read my psalms and be more positive on purpose. There is so much chaos in the world we live in. I will always focus on what is going well instead of focusing on the negative.
