Destini the Chocolate Princess reveals the suffering that a girl named Destini experienced. She
was bullied in school and told repeatedly she was ugly. She wanted to kill those who were making
her feel ugly and she wanted to commit suicide. However, the love and wisdom of her adoptive
parents and Stephan changed her life.
Children are bullied every day in school. Some have no one to defend or help them. It would be great if we make it our duty
as adults and parents to see that this is stopped.
I once knew a teen, who committed suicide, he thought he was ugly, yet he was handsome. Tears fill my
eyes just thinking about it. Maybe there was something I could have done or said, to give him a reason, to
live, but, I did not know his pain at the time. If only he realized how awesome he was. If only he had an
outlet or he knew someone who really cared.
There are people hurting now, who need encouragement. My book “Destini the Chocolate Princess,” encourages
young and old to accept themselves. A reader said she thought she was the only one that experienced Destini’s
story. I told her I wrote it to let people know, they are not alone. A young lady said she identified with the character, it
helped her. An adult said this book helped her form day to day.
Feelings of ugliness, rejection, low elf-esteem and unhappiness can be triggered when children are teased, bullied or
not accepted. Bullying, not only happens in schools, but, in churches and the work place. This can lead to certain
disorders, even suicide and these feelings seem to gets worst in the teens. These symptoms could disappear, if a
caring mentor is at their side. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
