Recording information by swankivyPATRON

My entry into Winterfest Week 4--my birth month is January, and this a song in the alternative category! And I'm even wearing a coat that's many colors!

A lesson from my youth: One year in elementary school, a boy was always harassing me on the playground--coming up behind me and pushing my shoulders until I'd almost fall over, trying to make me give him my snacks, etc. I told several adults and they all just laughed and said the boy must like me, because that's what boys do when they like you. Then one day, my teacher had us do a prompted journal entry and the prompt was "something I'm worried about." I wrote about the boy and drew pictures of him pushing me on the playground. The teacher wrote in the margins "I will definitely talk to him about this." And the harassment stopped. The teacher taught me that when someone is hurting me, I shouldn't let people tell me it doesn't matter, even if they're authorities. I should always go with my gut and not hide it if I have what I know is a real problem.
