I A Childhood Bullying Survivor

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 790 People

    From the start of high school,

    a guy Who I won't name, used to do horrible things to me after the school bell rang. He'd always find me, and would hit me do ******* hard in the face, once he broke my cheek bone and jaw. He also tried to kill me by holding my head down in the school swimming pool. I passed out...

    Not "Run Of The Mill" In The Slightest.

    Just saying "I was bullied as a child" is a massive understatement. I was harassed, beaten down, and effectively tortured into submission. My crime? I'm intersexed, was raised as a boy, but too "girly" for the tastes of the kids at school. It didn't start off right off the bat...

    Still Am

    I have kids bully me all the time, ever since I was four. They call me a *****, ****, *****, they tease me, kick me, trip me, and punch me in the face until I cry. God, I wish they would die and go to hell.

    My Pride Would Become My Worst Enemy

    Bullying has taken its toll on the lives of a mere 4,400 students every year. One of the main key reasons is that the administrators do not do anything about it, or even purposely take the bully's sides. It gets pathetic. Let me tell you exactly how someone's pride can turn from...

    Survivor is probably too strong a word.

    I'm scared of physical contact, scared of public restrooms, terrified of school auditoriums, afraid to walk past ten specific locations and I don't like talking to people because I'm waiting for them to beat me up or start yelling at me. But... With all that... At least I'm not...

    I grew up being the only kid in a wheelchair in

    my town and was always an outsider. I was bullied a lot throughout school. I was put on a picnic table in my chair, I had my back wheels taken off throughout the day and I was locked to a pole with a bicycle lock a few times

    Because Of God

    Call me crazy but I believe that the only reason I didn't kill myself was because God gave me the chance to start over. He gave me a new school and a fresh start, even though the pain still haunted me everyday for a long time, and occasionally still does, I've learned that...

    Yes, I may have survived

    but I am not the same. I probably never will be. If you think that psychological damage from bullying is a myth, I am proof that it is not. The damage is very real. The things people (including teachers) said to me were told to me when I was very young so I believed it. I went...
