And thanks for your additional comments as well. I have definitely moved on from my earlier years, and it helped me become a person who looks more to her own approval of self than to external approval, so in that respect was a good thing. But it was unpleasant at the time.

I can remember going to a college basketball game where the center was 6'9" and his own crowd was yelling things at him about his height. It really made me mad. People can be really stupid and I still have little tolerance for bullying of any kind. But right now I lead an interesting life that I enjoy and as they say, “Living well is the best revenge.”
