10. Who do you wish you’d treated differently?

I really wish I could go back to grades 5-8 and treat one of my friends differently. When I knew him, I knew him as a she. To respect him, I will be referring to him using male pronouns. My friends and I would always tease him for never wearing his hair down as he had beautiful long black hair. He always wore it in a ponytail but a couple times my friends and I would steal his hair bands because we thought he looked better with it down. I did not realize at the time that he was not comfortable as a female and was actually male. I wish I could go back and not tease him for not being girly. I have recently been in contact with him for the first time since grade 8 and I hope to visit him and hang out sometime.
