I Was Bullied

    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...

    Why do people go out of their way to be

    unnecessarily cruel? In my first couple years of high school i experienced this recurring scenario where one, fairly popular, attractive guy would say "hey my friend thinks you're cute" then they would look at each other, break into laughter and walk away, sometimes joking about...

    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...

    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 never had an issue with making a lot of

    I don't understand people's issues.

    What joy do people get by making people not want to live their life anymore? What if it was them, or their siblings. Or even their parents? People can be so inconsiderate, and I think it's getting to much. Society is broken, no human being should feel the need to die because of...

    I was bullied in middle school,

    I am still best friends with one of the girls who participated. She is like my sister, but she refuses to acknowledge how much pain she put me through when we were kids. It's been 14 years, but it still bothers me.

    it hurts because I felt like I would never get a break from all the teasing. It went on from the time I was in the second grade until I was a senior in high school. I was called ugly, stupid and other names. It really sucked. I didn't have many friends so I didn't have anyone...

    Fun fact: if you tell someone to kill

    themselves, it's considered encouraging suicide, you could get a fine of $25,000 and 10 years in prison. If they actually commit suicide, You can be charged with manslaughter. So, it's most likely in your best interest to stop being an ***. Thank you ^-^

    until the day I graduated high school. I was bullied because I was overweight but after a while I just learned to ignore it. Now I really don't care what people say, I just walk away and be myself.
