If all you wanted was my attention, you got it. If all you wanted was a rebound, you had it. If all you wanted was to prove that you can still make anyone fall for you to stroke your own ego, I fell for you. So congratulations, you won. You got what you wanted and left me with nothing. Are you happy now?

As an adult woman working with young women, I can see a vicious cycle. The classic “hurt people, hurt people”. As a former “mean girl” and victim of bullying, I know that this is a cycle that has got to end.
