“My biggest struggle is my weight. All people do is pick on me about it. They always have something to say about how I’m way too skinny. You don’t understand, when you walk down the hallway and people say ‘you’re a twig’ or ‘you look like a stick’ or ‘ you’re a walking twig’ it just really gets to you after a while. At first you laugh and think its funny but I’ve always been kind of skinny and things really get to you after a while. I’ve been in the weight room and stuff, I just don’t get bigger. But when they say this stuff to me I usually just keep my headphones in. There’s not really a whole lot you can do, especially in school. But its honestly not just at school, its people everywhere. If I’m at basketball practice and I take off my shirt I get weird looks or even at the park when I’m minding my own business playing basketball someone always has something to say. When you’re 6’4 and 155 lbs. it really makes you feel underweight. It doesn’t make you feel good. But I really just want to gain more weight so people stop saying stuff. In my own opinion I really think I’m fine.”

    Kids can be cruel. I wish that they would realize that everyone is fighting a battle. Just continue to be your authentic self, Cole.
