    Oh yeah, I've been bullied

    for dancing and for being a 'bender' (gay). I'm still passed the occasional note or snide remark, although it doesn't bother me anymore.

    I was a target for bullying

    because I wasn't a person that went with a crowd and did what they did. I never had many friends and I was different. I had seizures and I was always moving.

    Sadly, Yes.

    When I was in Kindergarten, the first thing I remember is climbing onto the monkey bars, seeing a girl, and saying "Hi, I'm Hayley!" She said, "I don't like you and never will." This girl was Haly {last name cut}. She ruined my school life. There were always...

    Thank you bullies. I was bullied

    and this is not a dog story. I got punched, name called, threatened, but I had two options. Be a victim or decide to stand up for myself. I decided to stand up for myself and that's why I thank them. I wish I never happened but it is one of the things that made me who I am today...

    What It Feels Like To Be Bullied

     Mostly it’s the loneliness. The horrible bone crushing loneliness when you realize that there is no safety net for you. Just the fact you exist is a liability, so everyone’s relationship conditional at best. Did I say i was your friend, I'm sorry but I didn't really know...

    I Thought Something Was Wrong With Me.

    I moved to a lot of different schools growing up.  My parents felt guilty about this, thinking that this is why kids bullied me, but it wasn't.  I remember feeling faint with relief every time I'd move to a new school.  At a new school, I wouldn't have a reputation...
