I’m a woman in my 30s. Outcast is where I write about my experiences with bullying.

From I was 8 until I was 16 I was severely bullied by my peers and I’m still working my way through the issues I developed as a result of it.

I’m not looking for sympathy. My story is all too common for that.

My goal is to shed some light on what the short and long term effects of bullying are.

These are some reflections from the perspective of the victim.
