I Was Bullied

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,612 People

    I was bullied in high school.

    I was the biggest nerd by a good margin. I was in science club, started chess club and a robotics club. I was taking every AP class I could and I was great at all of it. The bullying taught me that I am who I am and there are always going to be people that hate me for it. I...

    A couple of years ago I got bullied.

    It was physical and I got slapped, dragged across the floor by my hair etc... The bullies also did things like flushed my bag down the toilet. I am glad to say that I no longer get bullied but my confidence has been knocked considerably. I now have social anxiety and believe...

    I think that a lot of what I've been through

    has made me the person I am today. I am beautiful and overweight and I am witty and sarcastic and I won't take anyone's ****. I don't owe anyone an apology for loving myself.

    Ive been bullied my entire life.

    Sometimes I have these dreams

    where I am confronting my high school and university bullies. I am usually waking up crying (ugh hate that) but in the dreams I'm asking them why they felt the need to do the things they did to me. I guess years later I'm not fully over those things. In the dreams, they never...

    + a mad family. I have no idea how I survived

    all this, and if I survived after all or I am just a ghost of what I am supposed to be,I am damaged indeed and maybe that's why I find it so hard to connect with people, plus I never was that type who will accept anyone in my life just for the sake of not being alone. But it...

    We all wear the same skin,

    some of us just soak longer in the color. We all have the same eyes, just some of us hide more behind them. Well all cry, some just do it louder than others. We all love, some just do it better than others. We all are human. Some just haven't figured that out yet.

    I haven't really been bullied before,

    but I have witnessed it so many times and it makes me so sad! Nobody should listen to what they have to say because they are usually just having a bad day and feel like taking their anger out or they are just jealous

    When I was young, around maybe 9 years of age,

    I was bullied by members of my family, as well as my peers in school. I always struggled with my gender identity and caught so much grief for it. I didn't have any friends for a long time and as I grew older, children and some adults were very cruel to me. To this day, i still...

    Sticks And Stones

    The bullying started when I was about nine years old. I had an over-bite, and I was different from the other kids. I was artsy, and a little strange. The kids called me " squirrel girl" among other names. They said I was dirty, they said I was grimy. I will admit, I got a lot of...

    I was always bullied

    when I was in middle school.. I always got called ugly and made fun of for being in slower classes. The thing I didn't understand is that I'm just like them. I'm human. I may not be the prettiest but let me tell you I am the nicest

    I was bullied all throughout my childhood

    but I don't think it's a bad thing. It has helped shape the person I am today. It's made me more friendly and compassionate. I can easily pick up on cues that let me know my friends are feeling low as I've been in a similar position. I can also respond appropriately and talk...
