    Once someone hates you they will ALWAYS hate

    you. I know someone who had someone that bullied them during the seventies. Seriously being miserable towards them. 40 years later they saw them again and they showed their hatred again. No bullying but things like scorns, looks of hate and disgust and avoiding them. When...

    I've always been a socially awkward person,

    which I've grown into accepting as just one of my flaws. Yet it lingers in my mind a really disturbing moment in my childhood where I was bullied not by nearly other children but by the very teacher that was supposed to halt such actions. It all traces back to my sixth grade...

    I was bullied for 7 years straight

    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...

    Never be bullied into silence.

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

    In an effort to overcome my PTSD,

    it was important for me to go back to my high school 10 year reunion in a kind of exposure-therapy type of way. It was a weird experience because a girl who bullied me quite a bit was very friendly to me and other classmates acted happy to see me. Do bullies get excited to...

    Not so much in primary school,

    but secondary school was a pit of misery and hell for the first three years. You feel so isolated and emotionally exposed, and then you realise that neither your peers nor your teachers really care. I'm self-aware enough to notice that I still subconsciously check to see what...

    not that often at all. But I remember a handful of times. The first time I remember being bullied was when I was 4 or 5 years old...by a previous friend. A group of kids in the neighborhood dared me to climb a certain tree. I did it, and sat down on two branches that spanned out...

    When I was in kindergarten,

    I was bullied by five fifth grade boys. I had no clue what it was like to be hit by a boy, but I was hit by my mother. I didn't know either that they almost took advantage of me, but didn't.

    When girls are being mean to you

    and picking on you, it's bullying. When boys are being mean to you and picking on you, it means they like you. Hmm. Yeah, I don't think so. Doesn't matter what gender, if someone is picking on you and being mean it's bullying. Plain and simple.
