Revenge isn’t something we will all get against our bullies, but it’s always something sweet.
When Louisa Manning was just 12 years old, she was being ruthlessly bullied by an older boy at her school. Everyday the bully would call her overweight and fat. The insults didn’t stop there as he would even call her a “manbeast”. The bullying was so rough for Louisa that she ended up developing anorexia as she desperately wanted to be the skinny girl. Anything to stop the cruel bullying.
College was where Louisa was able to miraculously turn everything around.She was able to cope with her anorexia and maintain a healthy weight. She found her confidence once again and was able to be the woman she always wanted to be. She felt incredible and one day when she was at a college sporting event, she was approached by a man.
It turns out it was her old school bully, but he didn’t recognize her.She did though. The ex-bully began to flirt with her completely oblivious of their past. Louisa did, however, so when she was asked out by her former bully she knew she had to take it.
Louisa was going to get her sweet revenge in a clever way, she was going to be the one to reject him. She was going to stand him up at the date.
The night of the date, she approached the waiter and gave him an envelope for her former bully. Inside it was an photo of her along with a letter…

This is Louisa as she is today. A stunning, beautiful, confident and happy woman.
But she wasn’t always able to turn heads so easily…
This was Louisa just 10 years ago.
She struggled with weight problems and as a result she was subject to cruel bullying at school by her classmates.There was one bully that was easily the worst of the bullies, though. He would call her nasty names, insult her weight and just in general make Louisa’s life a living hell.
The bullying was so bad that Louisa eventually developed an eating disorder, anorexia.Thankfully, Louisa was strong so she was able to overcome it eventually.
Only 10 years later, Louisa ran into her school bully that caused her so much grief. The two were at a sporting event and the bully had no clue who this stunning woman was. Louisa remembered this bully as clear as day, however.

When the bully asked her out on a date, Louisa happily accepted. Secretly, she was cooking up a plan of sweet, sweet revenge for a bully that caused her so much pain and grief.
The plan wasn’t needlessly cruel. While he waited for her at the table, she would never show up. Instead she gave the waiter something to give to him. An envelope with an old photograph of her along with a letter she wrote to him.
Below is the letter in full:
So sorry I can’t join you tonight. Remember year 8, when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do — I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day. So I’ve decided to skip dinner.
Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by? Remember how every day for three years, you and your friends called me Manbeast? No perhaps you don’t — or you wouldn’t have seen how I look eight years later and deemed me [&#$%#] enough to treat me like a human being.
I thought I’d send you this as a reminder. Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she’s the one who just stood you up.
After Louisa posted her incredible story of revenge on a bully served cold, her story quickly went viral as there’s nothing people love more than a story with a happy ending.
Amazingly, however, this isn’t the end of the story as Louisa did hear back from the former bully.
After the initial posting, Louisa went back to her Facebook page to post an update. Her bully had responded with an apology.

Hey… For what it’s worth, I was actually here to meet up looking for a chance to meet up looking to make friends, not because you are very good looking. I guess I had it coming though, and certainly don’t blame you for standing me up.
I can’t change who I was 8 years ago, and I won’t insult your intelligence by pretending it didn’t happen, but I hope you believe me when I say I’m a completely different person now. I can only apologise and wish you the very best. I guess I won’t hear from you again but I mean it when I say that I was you have every success you deserve
