I Have Unhappy Memories of School

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,801 People

    In kindergarten it was Canada's (my home) turn

    to hold the Winter Olympics, and my class and few other classes were going to cover the gym with pictures of the mascots. And I had a terrible fear of puppets and such, even to this day, that I didn't want to colour the colouring sheet. So my teacher said that I could help hand...

    This group of boys would always tease

    and hurt me in school and in the break. I was 9 at the time and only a few months until my birthday. Those guys were really strong and tough. So was I at the time, but no where near stronger than them. I actually really hurt 2 of them by throwing certain objects at them, but I...

    Some of the saddest memories I have are in

    school, being so obviously alone and sad. I don't feel as though I was meant for school. I love learning so much, but somehow I am "different"...

    Like how I used to be bullied

    because I was almost at the edge of being obese. But that changed when I wanted it to change anyway. So even if that memory did affect my outlook of myself, even now, I'm thankful that I didn't need to endure that kind of crap as soon as I had started high school.

    Unhappy Would Be A Step Up For Me.

    Pure HELL, would be more accurate. Getting picked on by the other kids and ostricised for being different was bad enough. GettingĀ picked on by the teachers was FAR WORSE. NO PUBLIC SCHOOL FOR MY KIDS!!!!

    When I was in third grade,

    there was a girl who seemed depressed. She would rant on and on about how her life sucked, and how her mom hated her. I tried to be her friend. I thought it would cheer her up. When she broke her arm, I was the one delivering get-well-cards to her doorstep. Years later, she...

    The Nightmare

    School years beginning at age 5 to the end of high school..a never ending nightmare. As a kid I never had friends and usually had to pay a dollar to have someone to hangout with. Kids were kids. I didn't have my first "friends" until I was in 5th grade. Literally. For...

    Anyone on here ever go through

    that time in phy ed where they chose teams and you wondered if you were ever going to be picked. Looking back on it I should have refused to participate in such a humiliating exercise. Not sure if they can still do this.

    Who doesn't? :p I was a little eccentric

    and it was difficult for me to make friends. I became less awkward my sophomore year, I think. I don't miss all the drama, that's for sure. And spreading of rumors. There was a rumor my senior year that I was lesbian. I just laughed it off. Better than having everyone think I...

    From grade 3 all the way up to about grade 6, I was quietly bullied by my "peers." I still have no idea why they hated me so much. It could have been a lot of things: I was new to that school in the 3rd grade, I was a shy kid and didn't talk much, I was very smart...

    School, well that wasn't fun ever.

    Bullied, beaten up, attacked throughout my school life so much so my survival went up when I stopped going. No more beatings, no more pain - the local town was great - spent most of my days in the end on the beach or playing Pac Man and ninja turtles :-)
