    That's Why.

    I still remember that even after those years without these girls telling me how fat and ugly I was. I'm pretty sure I'll never forget what happened. How it was. How I felt. I feel like I'm lucky for having such good parents though they're not together anymore. It's okay, I don't...

    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.

    When I was younger I had poor social skills

    and thrift store clothes, so I was, at one point, shunned by my entire class. It really shaped me as a person.

    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...

    I was always bullied

    because of my appearance. In my second elementary school (2nd grade through 3rd grade), I was bullied because I had freackles and I always alone during those years. The only people that I was close to was my two second grade teachers, mis. Putman from Kansas and Mis. Lee who was...

    This is the story of one experience.

    In my freshman year of high school there was this really nice guy who sat next to me in English class. We talked sometimes and it felt like he liked me. Suddenly about two years later, he was completely different. I guess he had decided to start bullying me for no reason. I...

    and skinny and people tried to be mean to me but I have a mouth on me. I made every single person who picked on me cry . I shoot to kill . I don't believe that bullying is the real problem. People are sheltering their kids and raising sissies. If you let people hurt you they...

    Because I was small and white,

    I went to a Black & Hispanic school. I was physically bullied until I was in 7th Grade, when I was so tall that I made some of my former bullies pee themselves. I was about 7 feet tall at the time, and I got friends. Though I was bullied, which damaged some of my personality.

    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...

    Bullying In High School

    Although I have always been kind of big I was never bullied, picked on or teased for that reason. There was one super bully at my school who had an entourage that followed him. He bullied me, picked on me and teased me because I was (still am) not circumcised. Not only that but I...

    I never really fit in anywhere - I don't know why. I think I was socially awkward, I had trouble talking to other kids since elementary school. I was never the cool kid - never had the big network of friends. I had one close friend until high school when I managed to get one...

    I was bullied for my weight.

    I struggled with Anorexia and Bullimia for a long haul because of that. People need to reconsider their words more. I teach Preschool and Kindergarten, I have observed and learned that bullying being a bully starts at an early stage. :(

    When I was at secondary school I was bullied

    badly because of my disability. One girl throw a basket ball in my face and I was told by my doctor that I was lucky she didn't brake my nose. Because she throw it that hard. No one deserves to be discriminated against.

    go through life and come across these people that they seem totally oblivious to the fact they ever did it. "No *******, I won't be seeing you at the 20 year reunion, you're one of the reasons I'd go back in time and burn the school to the ground if I could."
