    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 Will Effect Me Forever.

    It started when I begun secondary school. I don't know I just didn't make any friends, my mentor kept telling me to try talking to new people - and I did. But this made things worse as I'd get rejected and then I would be embarrassed. I got bullied because of the way I look, I...

    I'd have to say the bullying started

    when I was in grade 5. So about 8 or 9 years ago. My Aunt Cathy passed away so my mom and I moved to her house to take care of her son Rob. It was still in the same town, but I had to switch schools. Things went okay for the first little while until these 4 older girls decided I...

    Most of us can relate with the usual bullying

    stories. They are most upfront and noticed. But the secret, weirder tales are more to gaze upon and swat away from your mind like a buzzing fly. Yet I can only relate to the unusual tales. That is my most evident, upfront quality I despise of myself

    It was because of my skin color.

    The irony was the fact that it was a religious school. I changed schools after that. No more racist bullying, but I had become a bit more (I already was) socially awkward. To this very day I still can't hold up a normal conversation for too long.
