    Whoever said words can’t hurt was never the pariah of a group of teen girls. From the clothes I wore to the chest I lacked, I was told daily how ‘ugly’ I was. My parents helped me see I had the power to just walk away from my bullies. And I learned that life does get a lot better. Bullying a willful, conscious desire to hurt another and put him/her under stress. Actions speak louder than words.No one deserves to feel worthless.
