When I was younger I used to be verbally bullied. Throughout my childhood different girls would come up to me and call me names and made fun of me. There were a lot of girls who did that but only three hurt me the most (let´s imagine their names were "A", "B" and "c"). The girl "A" which was the first one verbally and physically (a couple of times) tortured me for three long years; the girl "B" used to be my friend until one day she found out that she was much happier if she made fun of me with some of my classmates; and the girl "C" was the worst of all... she (verbally) tortured me for nine long, long years. She loved to see me cry. One time she said that she was the happiest girl ever because she made me cry.
When we were on 10th grade, the girl "A" texted me this huge message apologizing to me, saying that I didn´t deserve what she did and said to me, so I forgave her and now we are good friends. I became really close with girl "B" about a year after she stopped bullying me... she apologized and we acted like nothing happened. And the girl "C" never apologized and never will because she hates me for no reason (she said it herself) but I still forgive ever even though she doesn´t want my forgiveness.
Don´t hold grudges. Learn how to forgive people and you will see that you will feel much better. Trust me!
