This goes out to all y’all with childhood bullies.
I had a friend in middle school that bullied me. I guess that means he wasn’t really my friend, but whatever. Anyways, I saw him working at Taco Bell a while ago. It brought back a few bad memories, so I decided to go in there and confront him and try to provoke him into a fight. I went in and talked to him, and I even started to confront him. But then he apologized, and then I apologized, and we left each other on good terms. I left annoyed with myself. I had really wanted to fight the kid for some closure, but ended up getting closure in a peaceful way. Quite the tragedy.
Moral of this story: if you want to fight, hit first and talk later.
