I Was Bullied In School

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 743 People

    It started when I was seven.

    A girl I thought was my friend was just horrible to me. She made fun of my eyebrows (weird, I know), my ADHD, and a lot of little things like that. She basically nitpicked every aspect of my life and used it against me. Thankfully, we moved when I was thirteen. But it didn't...

    It kinda helped me realize

    that it's truly bad and has helped me become a better person. But long story short, I got verbally abused for a long time and at times physically until I got too strong and then I could hurt them. Fortunately, I moved away from the bullies. Unfortunately, it lead to my biggest...

    Not Conventionally...

    Everyone seems to assume that bullying can only take place with people calling you names or shoving you into lockers or chasing you for blocks or beating you up behind the gym. That's what I thought, too, at first!  Until I talked with a psychiatrist about my experiences, I...

    The Wall Flower

    In school I was very quiet and very shy. I had a few friends but not alot. I had buck teeth in school so everybody made fun of me. My parents always brought us to cheap stores so we got made fun of because of what we wore.

    My grandma told me to pick up a stick

    and a rock and fight back. This was when I told her about kids picking on me in elementary school. I thought it was funny. I did fight back at least though.

    Jealously? They had money, could go away on holidays and have LIVES. I wanted their lives! No one knew of my home life (hope not), but I don't know how it could've been jealously. Intelligence? I wasn't smart and barely passed. Looks? I got teased so much for being big. What...

    I moved to a whole new school in 7th grade.

    From there on out the bullying, and torment was incredibly hard to deal with it. I faked sick so many times so that I didn't have to be around that. People can be so cruel, I just never understood why.

    It was like there was a target painted on my back. I was younger than everyone else, and smart enough to keep up.  I looked like none of them, and I came from a family with very different values than theirs. None of which is a good reason for the violence, but at least I...
