It can be difficult: That is certainly a rough thing for a young person to go through. One would hope that there are parents or teachers that can be informed of what is going on and do something about it. If a person is looking back on this situation, they may benefit by therapy to appreciate how this experience has impacted them . Sometimes even such a bad experience can cause good qualities to develop.
