Context: our school is having a reunion. I got picked on in early school because I was very quiet, it settled down in later school but I was still very much on the outskirts socially and avoided most people just to avoid any unwanted attention. I did have friends however and it would be nice to see them.
On the one hand, I think everybody is much older now, they have respectable jobs and have probably moved on from caring who's cool, who's a swot, etc. I'm also different now and I get on with most people.
On the other hand, I'm scared people will think "why is she here?", or not talk to me. I would also feel physically angry if I saw certain people who led the bullying as I have struggled with acute anxiety for over 10 years as a result and at best they probably still think it was 'banter' or at worst they don't even remember.
Would you go?

You have to be confident. Get over what happened to you at school. The "bullies" won't even remember you.

I think you should go! Show them how you've developed and grown as a person and hopefully they'll show you their newfound tolerance and respect x
