There I stand looking
Around feeling lost in a
Place so unknown
And lost like a mouse I scurry
To my place all alone
I become stronger and happier
Someday, somehow I’ll feel

I saw people I used to be friends with doing drugs, inhaling air fresheners, and drinking. I always wondered what changed in their lives for them to be doing those things. It was very alarming to me so I stay all alone. I felt I needed to become a tough kind of girl to survive high school so the bullies would leave me alone. If you are loud and act tough they seemed to back down.
How was your high school years? Were you the popular person, nerd, or a loner, etc? The popular students that disrespected you and bullied you, where are they today? Do you even attend your class reunions? Are the popular students happy in their lives or was their life over after high school?
I finally felt accepted in college because everyone matured and there were many new people that didn't know you, your family, your "status". I had those middle school friends who were my enemies in high school return to trying to be friendly to me in college.
Did you do something to a student you wish you could take back and apologize? Well know is your chance with facebook you should be able to find and connect with them. Who knows maybe whatever you did or said to them affected their life even as an adult and just by you saying your sorry could repair the hurt they have been carrying inside for years.
