I was also at the receiving end of continuous physical abuse. I remember being punched, kicked, spat on, pushed around, put in a choke-hold, throat-grabbed, tripped, and turned upside down, for no other reason than being physically unimposing, and therefore, an easy target. I even had my head smashed hard against the floor once. Man, did that hurt.
I’m so sorry this happened. Ugh. I was bullied too. I had my head slammed into a locker and I got punched in the face at an arcade while I was just tying to play a game, minding my own business. I’ve forgiven these people all these years later, but it certainly affected me deeply.
