The Ghost Of You (An Army Of Bullies)
Anonymous

So. I’d been bullied TOO much. Sometimes by boys,sometimes by girls. But every one of my bullies have one thing in common:they were once friends with me (on-again-off-again friends.) Truly I hate them. But as I grow as a teen (whoa,that was cheesy) I’ll get used to it.

I was always a quiet and shy girl in elementary school. I had friends but I wasn’t very good at socializing. Anyways when I went to sixth Grade,I changed schools. It was a totally new environment for me.
Most of the students at my new school were reckless and uncaring.they would curse at teachers, curse out each other, join on other students and so on.
my elementary school was the complete opposite.students respected one another and their teachers. there was rarely any disruptive behavior and absolutely no cursing.
Being a new student in a totally different school setting intimidated me.this of course made the other students feel like I was an easy target. They would pick on me about my clothes,my body,my hair and anything else they felt like picking on me about.
I would never say anything back,because i was too afraid.to play it cool i would just laugh with them as if I was unaffected.
But mostly everyday when I got home from school,I would cry and always think:what should I have done or said?
I always blamed myself. this made me see myself in a negative light.I was always judging myself or telling myself that if I wear this -I’m ugly or I look fat.
i am now in the tenth Grade and still get embarrassed in front of other classmates.I have had a difficult school life with many ups and downs.i am still learning and trying on how to not let other people affect me anymore. This is my start.

I remember being bullied from fifth to seventh grade ( 10-12 years old). I was tall so no one who did this did not know that I was that young, some people could even think that I was 15. The worst on it was that people who did it were not from my school. They were from highschool. My granny lived next to this high school and anytime I wanted to go to visit her from school I heard boys laughing on me . I also went there for language school and one time when I went home there were these two boys maybe 5 metres in front of me. They were turning back and laughing thinking that I did not see them. They were wrong. Or one time when I went from school by bus (not school bus ) The bus was full so I had to stand. There were these three boys. I did not listen to their conversation I heard them laughing but I did not now why until my keys fell. I picked them up and I looked at them they stopped . Then I found out that they called me gypsy even when I am not and I had to just stand there without a word. I did not tell anyone.

My story on being bullied
Anonymous

Growing up getting bullied for so many years was probably the worst 8 years of my life because in those years I had no friends… I never knew how it felt to go outside to play, sleepovers, football games, school dances, etc. I was always the quite one who always kept to herself but I guess that was a bad thing to some people. I always remembered I would always just want to be in my room & some days I would ask my mom if I could just stay home because I felt safer at home then I did in school. Mom always had my back though was always at the school even though sometimes I didn’t want her to cause I felt like it would make things worse for me. Got invited to sleepovers so people could cut off my hair while I was sleeping, getting threats texted to me, etc. I wouldn’t wish bullying upon anybody, it literally is the worst thing. But what people don’t understand is that nobody speaks up they see it happening and nobody helps that person. Schools don’t take serious action to bullying i experienced it. I couldn’t wait to just graduate because I wanted nothing to do with anybody & trust me I counted graduation down every single day. Nobody deserves to feel like they are worthless or feel like they don’t have anybody. If you see bullying happening take action to it before it’s too late, speak up and have a voice because I never did and I regret it. I was always so scared but you can make a change by helping and speaking out. Today I am stronger then ever and what people say about me has no effect on me. I am who I am and I wouldn’t change for anyone. #ProudOfWhoIAm

I dont know any good future

Im 16 now, but my boyfriend emotional abused me, I was so loyal, he pretended to love me so he could exploit me. I always end up alone, I have never had friends that stand by me, I always try to offer my best positive self, but no one ever cares. I feel like i can never be successful.

Hi I am 12 years old (Year 8) yes I get bullied a lot not just by my brothers but friends too I get abused a lot pushed around punched kicked and everything more because they think I allow it. I am too scared to stand up for my self because of what might happen after. I used to go home crying sometimes I didn’t go home at all till about 8pm because I was so scared and angry so I used to sit at the park by my self or go for a walk in the forest not scared of what might come my way. When I got home I got yelled at for not coming home straight away So I would go to bed. In the morning I would walk to school and try put make up on my face to cover up the bruises and cuts that they gave me I still get it but not as bad and guy’s if you are reading this I swear!!! something good will come out of all of this I swear they are only trying to make our lives miserable because they’re lives are. ignore them stand up for your self or tell someone who can help I swear it makes everything go away and you will be fine take my advice it really works thank you for reading.

Bullied for my medical problem
Anonymous

At the moment I’m 14 and I get bullied as I have a medical condition and I didn’t really want people knowing but when I got in to high school people started noticing that I was having a lot of time off and when I was at school I smelt a bit and was always changing clothes during the school day. Then I made a really good friend and decided to let her know of my problem and then the next day everyone knew and they were calling me names. to make it worse I had no friends now I have a few friends who are reserved like me my old friends hate me and are always talking and laughing about me but I tend to just concentrate on my school work
