Write about a time you’ve been physically hurt.
I used to get into a lot of fights when I was younger. Kids liked picking on me when I was in middle school, which in turn made me lash out in high school. I went through a lot of cuts and bruises just to get people to leave me the fuck alone.
I got into a lot of fights with my dad growing up. Those left me with bruises and cuts too, not just physically but emotionally and mentally.
The last physical fight I was in was in college, my sophomore year. Me and my friends were participating in Beer Olympics and we were getting hammered of course. One girl was not a fan of how I made fun of her puking and sucker punched me in the face. I hit her back. We got separated. End fight.
I try not to get into physical altercations anymore.
These days, the only bruises and cuts I get are from doing dumb shit with my friends. Or packing and moving across the country. Or when my husband accidentally hits my head and shoulder with the trunk of his car (don't ask).
