I have been to 3 different schools. The first school i was there from kindergarten to second grade. I only had one friend who wasn’t really a friend. I already felt lonely in second grade. Then I changed schools I was at this school from 3rd to 5th grade. It was the worst school ever the kids were horrible but the teachers were meaner. now from 6th grade to now (7th grade) girls bully me they call me weird and call me other names they also make up rumors about me that aren’t true. I come to find out that people think i’m different because kids these days want to become professional sport players but I want a tony award, people bully me because i love performing;singing, dancing, and acting. Its my life,girls make fun of me for something I love, for something that makes me special. I want to be on broadway but who cares what other people think i’m still being bulled I just got a rude instagram comment but It doesn’t bring me down and it shouldn’t bring you down because you have to know that your better than them

Why Me?

I have been bullied since 5th grade it first started out as just L teasing me to him calling me horrible names and body shaming me. Then one day he realized what he was doing to me and apologized to me. He told me that he was a victim of bullying. The sad thing is is that I actually believed him. I started to be his friend then one day he grabbed me by my shirt and lifted me off the ground. He slammed me against a wall at school and touched me inappropriately. I now am in 8th grade at a new school and i’m still being bullied. There is this boy who calls me horrible names. He looks at me in a perverted way. He knows my name but I don’t know him. He follows me around school with his friends. I’m so scared. I think he might do something to me.

Hello my name is Ahmad I am 13 years old from Lebanon. My whole life I’ve bullied and made fun of even my family makes fun of me. People telling me GAY, for me gay isn’t an insult I respect gays but in here I should MAN UP! If I cry I am a girl if I don’t punch someone who harrased me I am a girl. You know what’s worst then that? I have no friends and no one to talk to. So I started writing letters about trying to hurt myself to make people see me try to help me. But though I am scared that’s why I came here wishing I could get some help.

I have 10 girls in my class and 3 boys we are a small school and I find it hard. I struggle a lot with 4 girls, they have a don’t care attitude and I hate it they talk behind my back and then call me names. The other 2 girls are 1 of them is fine but she is sooo influenced by the other girl. The other girl was once my friend but is soo weird she would work with me and talk to me fine then I would find out she is saying nasty, spiteful things behind my back. This week I missed a day of school because I couldn’t face them they were so horrible…

Some may say my bullying story is my fault and maybe it is but I’ve done all I can to fix it. C used to be my friend and we’d always mess around but one day I put his picture through a makeup app and posted it on instagram thinking he’d take it as a joke but he didn’t, I deleted it straight away when I realised he was hurt and said sorry but he was determined to get revenge, which may I add is still being done 9/10 months on.  It carried on getting worse and worse until on my birthday he spread rumours about me around the school saying I’m a paedophile. I want to die but he doesn’t care that he’s brought me to thinking about suicide, bullies never do care and in my experience teachers don’t actually listen until it’s too late.

Growing up, people have always been cruel, but I thought that was just life. I had always showed compassion to everyone no matter what, but some people bullied anyways. All of elementary to sixth grade, I was bullied by the same 4 girls. I didn’t recognize it as bullying, as I was so young and unwilling to categorize myself as a victim of such hate. Those 4 girls made me think they were my friends. They would be nice, but then all of a sudden, shove me into the wall or push me down on the playground. The names they called me were ugly, fat, annoying. They made the entire school despise me because they were popular and everyone listened to them. I thought life couldn’t get worse. I moved schools, hoping to get a fresh start. In seventh grade, I ran for student council, but a few students ripped my posters down and spread rumors about me to make people vote for someone else. The worst part was that they won and I didn’t get elected. In eighth grade, a group of girls all called me the usual names and made fun of me for everything. I didn’t dress cute enough, my lunch wasn’t name brand products, etc. In addition, a group of guys would always push me or shove me down the stairs. Then came high school. I was dumped by my boyfriend of nearly nine months over text. He was just using me the entire time for me to do his homework or take him places. He admitted that he never liked me and actually, he hated everything about me.  I was told that my boyfriend had deserved better. I was told that I should go kill myself as I didn’t deserve to be alive. I ate lunch by myself for a few days, but then realized that I needed to rise above everyone else and be compassionate to everyone. It’s only been two weeks since the breakup, but everyone is still so hateful. I smile at everyone and I eat lunch with people who usually sit alone. My incidents have all opened my eyes, and led me to realize that I am not alone. Other people are made fun of and sit alone, so I decided to become their friend because I believe everyone deserves a friend. What I take from my bullying experience, even as it is still occurring, is that I have to show compassion to everyone and be forgiving. Since I realized this, I have been happy. I don’t think I had ever been happy before.
