The article, “Remembering your worth”(Maddie) taught me a lot about what some may experience when being harrassed by your own “team”. I am touched by this writing because being bullied is frowned upon but can be seen as not a big deal since they are considered children and people continue to allow them to act that way. It’s sad how even the parents turn a blind eye to their children’s behavior and don’t put a stop to it. It’s also devastating to hear how torn down you became with each girl looking down on you breaking your system from something you loved doing.
If this were to occur to me I’m unsure of how I’d respond and if I would even stand up for myself or would I just take the pain until it hurt me next. This must have been such a huge thing to get over with every member of the team telling you, you aren’t good enough and the coach not being able to prevent this from happening for being money hungry.
Is there anything you would have done differently if you could go back in time if you were being bullied?
