No Longer A Losergurl

For years, I’ve written on Losergurl and people would ask me, over and over, WHY do I call myself a losergurl?

You see, when I was in the middle of being bullied, people would call me a loser. I began to believe them.  When I decided to talk about being bullied, I thought, well, you call me a loser, well, I’m the best damn loser you will ever meet!  and Losergurl was born.

The thing is, I’m not a loser. I never was a loser.  I am just Ally.

I was someone who was a victim, and someone who found the strength to fight back.  I was someone who believed that I was worthless and fought hard to realize that I wasn’t. I was sharing with the world that I WASN’T a loser, but I was still calling myself losergurl.

So now it’s time for change. Change is scary. Change is good.  I want to share more of myself than just my bullying story.  I AM more than my bullying story.  I’m a good writer, a fabulous songwriter, and a really good singer.  I like music.  I love concerts. I like fashion. I like making friends and a I really like helping others to know that they are pretty terrific, too. I’m still working on helping to stop bullying, but I’m sharing much more of me.

So, I have decided I am no longer a losergurl.  I’m just….. Ally.

And that is pretty perfect.
