What's the best way to forget about a humiliating high school experience?
I was constantly bullied in middle school and high school... I was overweight and everyone took that as an open invitation to humiliate me. I'm 19 and still can't get over it all. I had to switch to a virtual school to get my diploma because I couldn't stay at my high school. I actually had a guy say to me one time, "don't break the desk" not to mention the times I had guys throw food at me.I don't see any of those people anymore but it still sticks with me. What are some ways to try to get over it?

Perhaps you need to re-evaluate what you went through and see it for what it was. You endured and survived one of the worst experiences a person could have. Every single person who picked on you was a sick & cowardly sheep. They are the complete sh*t of society and in my opinion quite abnormal. They did it to fit in and were weak and living on a mountain of insecurities. You find it hard to get over that past? Why? Truth be told it was not your fault and believe it or not but they too go through something similar as to what you claim your going through in your question. No one can live with a 'despicable' themselves. Everyday, each one of those perps who 'picked' on you lies to themselves and throws more things under a carpet just to get by. They do it to survive, cause their true selves are too weak and full of shame and they can't face up to that. You managed and survived through. You have seen the nastiest side of our society and you have not become one of them. You can admit and attest to the fact that it exists. You have already won and are a hero. You have already done more than what 99% would accomplish in their lifetime.

I'm sorry that has happened to you. I've been through similar situations and women are no better. Honestly, you will probably feel like this the rest of your life, as this stuff use to happen to me a long time ago and still messes with my mind! Their is not a day that goes by that I know that my male bullies would not dare to get in a physical fight with me today as I'am a grown man, but nothing would make me happier to deliver that!

Maybe get a new haircut (you could dye it another color) and have a pamper day?Sometimes taking the time to spoil yourself is enough to boost your self esteem and confidence. It won't erase your past, but it might help you look forward to the future (in the sense that you'll say I'm a completely woman compared to that girl in high school) and sometimes being able to be positive about what's to come is enough. Best of luck.
