I Was Bullied

    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...

    Be strong, but don't rude.

    And have kindness, and protect the weaker. If you used to be bullied, I'm sure you understand how it feel. Prove those mean people that no one deserves to be mocked, laughed at. :)

    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...

    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...

    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...
