I Was Bullied

    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...

    Much of my youth was spent being bullied.

    One reason was my ADHD/ADD had made me autistic and very shy. I must be one of a few people who had been bullied in both USA and Japan. But nowadays, one young colleague thinks I am a bully at the office and kowtows to me. When he compliments me I feel really baffled and ashamed...

    Water Under The Bridge

    I was bullied my entire childhood from age 5 to about 15. Looking back I realize I missed everything that made childhood fun like friends, parties, girls, excursion, sports. Well not everything, I became a prolific reader, I learned to love nature, I'd spend hours alone by...

    It made me who I am. As a child,

    I remember having no friends. I remember being lonely most, if not all, of the time. My only friend was a selective mute, who a lot of people believed was creepy (he tended to smile at people, usually while staring at them, for extended periods of time). This fact was made even...

    I was bullied for the first time on EP today.

    It was weird, not that there's EVERY a reason to be bullied, but it was just random and the person was obviously disturbed... As all bullies are. If you're being bullied, EVER, I am here. Always.

    and I survived. Physically, at least. But because of that, I just wish that I had the ability to teleport to places where someone else are being bullied so that I could help and stand up for them. Someone has to. And apparently it takes ''balls'' to stand out from the crowd just...

    In the seventh grade I started at a new school.

    It was very hard for me to adjust. I didn't make many friends and I kind of just did things on my own. I really wasn't accepted by others because I was new. Once I thought I had made a few friends, I would try and sit with them at lunch. So i'd set my stuff at the table and go...
