Not good enough
When I was around 8 or 9 years old I was best friends with this boy. We had known each other our entire lives.
I loved to hang out with my brother and him but they used to always make fun of me. I was always the butt of every joke and that really bummed me out. I was really chubby then and I had a really low self-esteem. I was happy with whoever would give me attention and make me feel like I actually mattered.
I stopped hanging out with him over the years because he was becoming so popular he ignored me. Now I'm 13 and hate all popular kids. But whenever I see him with his friends and his girlfriend it kills me. I feel sick inside because I feel like I could've been popular too but I wasn't pretty or skinny enough.
He's always going out with his friends and having parties and it's awful for me cause I always hear about him and his friends from my mom because our families are really close. I hate this feeling I get when I'm around him, like I'm like a huge disappointment and I'm totally lame and unpopular.
