people called me emo, gay, transgender. only two of things are true but it still hurt. I got bullied a lot. starting in 4th grade all they way to now (12th grade) there is this one boy who tells me to drink bleach and kill myself every day. I would stick up for myself but he has dirt on me, and I don’t want it getting out.

Growing Up
Anonymous

Growing up I couldn’t wait for the teen years, they were going to be the best! I was so wrong. Sixth grade I had been homeschooled due to bullying in my younger years, but I never thought that it would get worse in high school. Seventh grade I had been quiet and isolated, that was, until I became friends with a few girls who I thought were just like me. Over the years, these girls became the worst thing to happen to me, all but one, who I am still good friends with to this day. The “leader” of our group, brought us all down, especially me because of my innocence. By the time I got to high school, I was no longer the girl that I had remembered, I hated who I had become. Our “leader” got us to see the world in a different way, to me, I went from seeing the world as this amazing place where I was beautiful and could do anything, to seeing the world as a cruel drug addicted hell. I hated myself, was told to lose weight, told to wear makeup, and I obeyed. The pain hasn’t left me and I still struggle with bullying on a daily basis, but I’m getting better, and I hope you do too.

Thought i was alone…
Anonymous

I had to pull a face for eveyone else. I thought being upset and crying because what people said about me “was no big deal”. I didn’t tend to fit in because of my backround (muslim), i was told to go “bomb your family” “jump off the bridge” “kill yourself” etc. I had fake friends, i don’t really even want to call the “fake friends” because they treated me like s**t. I got into the habit of hurting myself. now i have found my real friends, they’re always there for me and i can always tell them my true deep feelings about anything. I just had to learn that i was not alone when i went through anything, and there are people that go through worse and handle it better and people that go through less but are hard to handle.

For the whole 13 years i’ve lived, I have to face emotional bullying since 4th grade. Everyone at school creates group of friends, and i am always the one being out. Also, they always say i’m a girl (which I’m not), because i don’t swear and i am kinder than anyone else in class, and even after i told my parents and teacher, the whole thing started over in middle school. I need someone to help me, and show some kindness in their heart.

This is My Fragmented Story

I got bullied up until 3rd through 8th grade. How was I bullied it really depended on which bully you were talking too. Third and Fourth I was treated as an invisible disease and almost everyone in my class would go out of their way to avoid and/or call me dirty. I would also get the usual girl drama, of two-faced girls. I also was usually picked out by teachers as a “a problem child” and a “tattle-tail”, so when would ask for help I would get “Why don’t you just ignore them?” “Are you sure that you can’t talk it out?,” they honestly didn’t think I hadn’t tried? I had some days I just wanted to stay home, and cry; my mom said she would think about homeschooling me on these day. Probably, the only reason that people stopped picking on me by 8th grade is because the friends I had. They were either super friendly, or scary enough that no one would *cuss* with me. I got to the point that I would seek out those like the past me, and I would stand up for them; just like my friends did for me. We created a group of misfits that would pack into a hallway at lunch, and talk about was ever we wanted, do whatever we wanted and welcomed anyone; without fear of persecution. If you can find a true friend keep that friend, don’t forget about other grades where you bullies don’t precede you. I’m currently going to college to be a doctor, so take that everyone that said I wouldn’t amount to anything!

I was bullied in 6th grade by two classmates who used to be my friends, i even became depressed because i didn’t even had any friends at all. since that experience I’ve learned a lot, i have learned to love myself and have confidence because i was very very shy and insecure. right now im in 8th grade and i have a lot of good friends and i never felt more happy. I’ve learned to let go and keep going, if you are a bullying victim i assure you that the best you can do is talk with your parents or someone who can help you, talk with your principal about the situation and she or he will help you. if the situation doesn’t get better i recommend you to change schools, changes sometimes are the best options (take that advice from me i moved from two cities).

My life ( getting bullied)
Anonymous

All my life I been bullied. It got harder and harder each day nothing would work. Until I hit sophomore year of high school I met some people and tried really hard to get their trust and since the first day of school I stopped being bullied! You just need to find true people that’s actually really want to listen to you and help you. Then you will start being open and helping other people being teased bullied etc…

The worst point in my life
Anonymous

I was bullied ,it knocked my confidence and caused me to suffer with depression ,after 7-8 months of bullying I’m glad to say now it’s all over ,I went to a school where these girls just wouldn’t leave me alone ,they constantly started on me ,shouted at me abuse and chucked things at me,would wait out side the gates for me at school ,threaten me and I even got attacked,getting bullied will always be a big part of my life,I will always want to get revenge but I’ve had to learn that they will get their own karma ,I have anxiety and I’ll never forget the horrible things they said to me and how they made me feel like I was worthless and I wasn’t good enough for anyone ,their voices still go round in my head,it was 10 against 1 ,I felt so isslolated and alone ,I’m happy to say that even though I’m not happy now and what happened has scarred me but I’ve got through it and I’m proud I didn’t let them get what they wanted,I’ve learnt that you have to sick up for yourself no matter what people might say or think it doesn’t matter,you should never let yourself be the victim,and don’t give up because it will get better.
