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.
