  •  I had a very similar situation. (14+ / 0-)

    Though, now, I will actually go out of my way to stand up to bullies -- sometimes to my own detriment.  I've been known to stick my nose in where it doesn't belong.

    That's not, in any way, to minimize or take away from where you are now -- just pointing out how different people can end up in somewhat different places from the same original place.

    And, just as something I find interesting, I always felt trapped behind thick glasses -- getting contact lenses was one of the greatest moments of my life, it helped me avoid bullying.  I was always so blind that knocking my glasses off basically left me defenseless.

    If I have to go out of the house in glasses?  I immediately turn into that scrawny, picked on kid again.

    Our brains really do a number on us sometimes...

    Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?
