Bullies can make your life hell.
And it is incredibly hard to get out of that hellish rut even when you are free from all of that. So I can understand where Meghan is coming from. However, she was unable to get away from all that even after 10 years, and that is a very long time.
I really do feel for her, and you will too after you scroll on below and take a look at her story as she describes it through her incredibly emotional art. It all started when she was in school and one of her ‘best friends’ started to bully her.
Understandably, Meghan tried to repress all the memories but they all came back when she went on to her Bully’s Facebook.
I think a lot of us do this kind of mild self-harm where we look up people who have hurt us in the past, whether on Facebook or elsewhere. I’ve certainly done it before, and since.
I think many of us have been either picked on or the pick-onner at some point in our lives. Growing up is tough to begin with, and in school we have to contend with this social pecking order that’s constantly reasserting or reorganizing itself.
When I initially posted the comic I received so much feedback that I drew a response of sorts. A lot of people reached out to me with concerns or to share their own experiences, and I felt kind of a responsibility to respond. You can see that comic here.
Meet Meghan Lands, The artist behind this emotional comic.
T.J Max shoes.
Making fun of her.
Got into trouble.
From their school.
Deeply unhappy child.
As you can imagine, people could relate to her experiences.
While some thought the ‘perfect life’ of the bully might all be a facade.
And this comic is definitely making everyone think of their life.
And how ironic is that? Do people really change or is it all a lie?
