Ran into the girl I used to bully
A very humbling experience, I’m 23 now and recently ran into the girl I used to bully when I was like 13-16. I was a mean b**** back in the day, I guess I was young and stupid, and let some problems and issues at home affect my personality in school. She was small and skinny, I was skinny too but still taller and stronger, and me and me friends used to gang up on her. I can’t imagine what that would do to a young girls mind.
When I bumped into her recently we caught up and I said sorry for everything, I felt so ashamed, but she was so forgiving. It made me feel even worse, I probably would have felt less bad if she hated me and insulted me, but she just told me it was okay and it’s in the past. It just makes me realise what a nice kind girl who’s school life I ruined. We bullied her badly, and she just forgave me as soon as she saw me.
It’s just, I like to think of myself as a normal, kind person, but then as soon as I saw her I remember how devilish I’ve been in my life. I suppose we change a lot once thrown into the real world. I’m glad she forgave me but I don’t forgive myself, I hope one day I will
