I was bullied and mistreated by my kindergarten class. My Kindergarten teacher treated me poorly and she showed me no respect whatsoever. I almost died of Histoplasmosis in Kindergarten and I was sickly and I made an easy target for others pick on. The little girls in my kindergarten class were unrelenting on how poorly they treated me. My teacher and my classmates would laugh at me when I said something.
I was laughed at and mistreated by my female classmates until I entered fifth grade. My fifth grade teacher would not tolerate that kind of behavior in her classroom. She was the first female figure that I hadn’t known in my life that stood up for me. I was still very shy and would not say much as I still feared being made fun of.
It took me a long time to trust other girls or women. I guess I thought what is in it for them if they liked me. I remained very quite most of my life until I joined The North Iowa Bloggers.
My neighbor and friend started The North Iowa Bloggers and she invited me to join one of her meetings. Our Dear blogger friend Amy Hild always welcomed me in the room with her kind and outstanding smile and mannerisms. Amy made me want to come to the meetings as I knew she would be their with her kind ways radiating from her. I soon realized that women can be kind and caring without expecting something in return.
When I was sick The North Iowa Bloggers came to see me in the hospital, sent flowers, cards, and prayed for me. They are a wonderful caring, loving, and supportive group of women and men that truly and genuinely care about people.
I talk and visit with people freely and easily now. The bloggers have opened up a new and better chapter in my life. It used to be easier for me just to write about things but now I can visit freely and easily without having to worry about being judged unfairly. Amy told me never to stop writing and I never will stop. Thank You North Iowa Bloggers for making me into the person I always wanted to be. There is always time to make a change in your life if you let people in with like values and with God by your side.
