So, i was the vice president of my high school class. The president is a guy who is really busy, and i am going to be heading up a class reunion. The onlt problem is there was a guy in my senior class i really don't want to talk to. I was a good bit heavier my senior year (for multiple reasons mostly including emotional eating) and there was an incident on our senior trip that makes me not want to contact him ever again. We were waiting to go into the white house, and i was talking to a group of the guys in my class. They were all friendly, and i had talked to all of them on a daily basis except one. He was a "popular" guy that had been stuck by my locker because of alphabetical order. He never really ever spoke to me, and i felt like i wasn't important enough to talk to him. I had really low self esteem, but i tried to hide it. Well, i lost my balance slightly, and accidentally put my hand on his shoulder to steady myself, and he jumped away with a disgusted look on his face and said "Get your hands off me!" i was upset, i felt like he was just doing it because he felt i was fat and ugly, and i said it wouldn't hurt him if i touched him fat wasn;t contagious, i said "See!" and i touched his arm with one finger. And then he punched me. On the arm, and hard enough to leave a slight bruise and bring tears to my eyes. I just stood there about to cry and not knowing what to do, and the other guys shuffled away, loking really uncomfortable. He looked at me again, pointed his finger and said "I told you not to touch me, don't do it again!" i just turned around and walked by myself for about fifteen minutes before i found my friends. I didn't tell anybody because i was embarassed that my weight had caused someone to hate me to the point of physically harming me. I know it's been 10 years, but those same feelings are there, and i really don't know how to handle it. I have to contact this person, and i'm still feeling those feelings of embarassment and fear, and i am so upset i don't know how to handle it. I really wish i knew what to do. I know he is married and settled in life, and he might be different, but ever time i think about having to correspond with him, i still feel like that un-sure over-weight girl he hates enough to hit. Please, if you have any advice or ideas let me know i am deperate to over come this.Answer Question
