    An Easy Target

    When I was in 5th grade, the boundaries in my school district changed due to a new elementary school. This put me going to the middle school that only one other friend would be at. Luckily, or so I thought, he was my best friend all through elementary and I knew I'd have someone...

    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 never realized it till I was older,

    which is actually pretty funny. One time a kid kicked me down the steps whilst getting off of the bus, threw my glasses out the windows on the bus, and that guy also punched me. In fourth grade the popular girls kicked me out of their group and started to talk about me to other...

    I was the silent type back in the day.

    I wasn't shy, I just never really cared for engaging someone in conversation. There have been a select few bad seeds who thought I would be easy to bully but like any day, if you **** me off I'll let you know. I won't ever hurt someone though unless they attack first or if they...

    Nationality Issue

    I was treated badly at school for years because of my nationality. I was raised in Estonia, but my blood is half-Russian and half-Estonian. FYI, Estonians have huge problems with Russians, b/c of the Soviet Union stuff and how Russians mistreated them, although Germans mistreated...

    I was verbally abused

    when I was about 9 and it lasted for two or three years, but it was specially terrible because I had no one by my side. About 15 or so would make fun of me regularly, and the rest were too afraid to even talk to me. At home I was told that I couldn't transfer to another school...

    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.

    I've always been sort of an outcast.

    I'm proud to be different but others have judged me for it. I used to want to change myself so people would like me. Now I've realized that the opinion of others doesn't matter as long as I love myself.

    I was bullied in for years in school.

    I can't share the details, but I want you to know I still feel it. It still hurts and I still avoid those places and ppl. I am a parent but I can't rid myself of those feelings. I was listening to a program on NPR in my car and even now, so many years later, I had to pull my...

    My Experience Being Bullied

    My bullying began in second grade, though there were a few problems before that, too. Being accused of doing things that I had not done, but for some reason the teachers always believed the other kids. One teacher even lied about it and claimed to have seen me -- but no way could...

    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...

    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...
