This autumn I was invited as guest on the TV programme ”Fråga Doktorn” on SVT and later on in ”Nyhetsmorgon” on TV4 as well to talk about my experiences in school. I was definitely not accepted by my piers and did not have many friends. I was so different to my class mates, didn´t blend in the slightest bit. I was too tall, had bad acne, developed very early, (meaning I got boobs and my period extremely early), wore the wrong clothes, had the wrong haircut and on top of all of that I danced.
Today another article came out in the magazine ”Hänt i veckan” about me talking about what I have been through. It´s definitely one of the hardest things that I have ever done. I have no problem at all talking about my life and all the positive things that I have experienced but to let somebody in and reveal some of the more crappy things that happened to you was beyond scary for me but I did it and I feel that if it can help even one single person, then it´s worth continuing talking about and that is why I am writing these words today.
I felt like the loneliest person on the planet at one stage of my life and I did not ask for help. I didn´t tell anyone at all because I felt so ashamed. Don´t make the same mistake I did. Tell somebody today that you trust. A teacher or a grown up. There is help to get and things will get better.
