I Was Bullied

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,014 People

    Okay, when I was little,

    I was bullied quite often. I'm almost too embarrassed to say why because till this day, I still hide it. I know I shouldn't hide it and just accept myself but getting bullied hurts really bad.

    No one deserves to be bullied,

    and you don't have the right to bully innocent people. Being bullied is really scary, and at the same time traumatizing. Way back in HS i was bullied by some stupid guys in our class, the thing is they don't hurt me physically but emotionally, they tease me, call me ugly and...

    One girl held a cooking knife at me

    Never be bullied into silence.

    Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

    I remember my last bully

    because he literally never looked at me again. When I passed by he would look down. I relished in the fact that that fat bastard bully was scared of me. I was never bullied horribly. I was bullied because I was intelligent and quiet. Which brought on a lot of people telling me...

    I have experienced many types of bullying by

    people of different ages as it was simply down to 'luck' and because I didn't 'fit in' to society as I had 'ugly' looks and was 'weird'. I would like to help people who have been bullied and I would like to give them advice. I will post a story soon.

    I think the word 'bully' can also be used to

    'bully'. When I was young, there was this kid who would not leave me alone. This kid was totally obsessed with being my 'best friend', they hung around me all the time, sat next to me or stood next to me every chance they got, and constantly asked me to go to their house after...
