Why I didn't go trick or treating as 12 year old

Do I sound 12 when I write about when I explain why I stopped trick or treating as a 12 year old?

This is what I wrote:
My Mom thought as a 12 year old I could go Trick or Treating on my own. As much as I would have like it, I didn’t know at the time that I thought it was unsafe? (I just knew I didn’t want to do it alone and I didn’t really have friends which I was close too, or lived nearby). I realize now that the reason I didn’t go trick or treating as a 12 year old alone, it was because I thought it was unsafe due to bullies. And I had been bullied at school for the past 6 years previously and it had gotten worse in that grade and the next grade (Gr.7&8). Who knows what they could have done with me without an adult in charge around.
