The pain I experienced made me sort of bullet proof to being laughed at, mocked, critized and so on. The pain felt like a wave of blood taking over my whole body. The only way out was to keep going, never give up, walk one foot in front of the other. This is how it made me stronger. Because I can still go forward even if I am freezing cold, even with tears running down my face or fingers pointed at me. I just do not care because it is sweeter than drowning in the ocean of blood than pain is to me.
