  • I was bullied and I still am. I come home crying every day off the bus because people would call me really bad names and say stuff about me that isn't true. i didn't tell my parents anything and I hid all of my feelings because I was always told that the bullies like it when you show emotion to their actions. I am still scared to even walk down the hall ways because I used to get binder slapped and pushed into lockers and beat up. everyone would text me and tell me everything wrong with myself. that made me very self concious and feel like I wasn't wanted, I turned to self harm to help. all of this stuff happening to me made me servierly depressed. and I just want everyone to know that hurting yourself doesn't help. And if YOU feel like you're not wanted think again because you are, and to make you feel even better just think... there are thousands of cells in your body fighting to keep you alive and all that they care about it you. I am here for you. please remember that you are strong. you are gorgeous and you are perfectly you.

My Story and Advice
Daven

I was bullied pretty badly in high school. There was one kid in particular who would try to make me feel inferior in every way he knew how. For example, he would throw stuff at me constantly, flick me in the head, punch me, wipe whatever he picked out his nose on my shirt, call me ugly and stupid, mock me and of course – tell me he would beat me up if I ever fought back. It was like his daily mission.

And it was my daily mission to just get through the day. What can I say, it made my world very small because that was my sole focus – just surviving. Everything else fell by the wayside. Unfortunately, that included any form of social life. So not only was my world tiny. It was very lonely. 

Looking back to that time – which was about 11 years ago – my biggest mistake was not bringing anyone in to that world of mine. I was too proud (and embarrassed) to get help. I would rather not face the fact that I needed help because in my mind, that would mean that the bully won. It would also mean that I was weak. 

Let me just say this – bullying someone is a weak choice. The only reason they come after you is because they think you won’t do anything about it. Does that make anyone strong? Absolutely not. Be stronger – reach out to a parent, a teacher or friend. Anybody. Simply admit that you are struggling and need help. 

You can put it like this, “Somebody who is weak and trying to build their self esteem up has chosen to do that by putting me down. The only reason they are doing that is because I am nice and I haven’t done anything about it yet. Well I am through putting up with this. I have basic human rights that they are violating to feel better and that it is just not okay. How do I handle this the right way? I don’t want the pain cycle to continue and become someone I don’t want to be.

I will close by saying this – I am okay! I am not just surviving. I am enjoying my life. I graduated from college with honors by the way (being stupid was lie…it is all a lie) You don’t have to wait to live though. Do something today.
