Courtney // Regretting Being A Bully To Fit In

When she was eleven, a tumultuous age when the need to fit in is strong due to a lack of self-confidence, Courtney befriended the “cool kids” at the local pool. When her neighborhood friends, who did not fit the ideals of coolness, asked to play with Courtney and her clique, she actively excluded them in fear that she would be rejected by the popular crowd. Years later, she still regrets her actions and shares how the experience taught her to never compromise who she is just to be accepted.
