Yes, I was bullied throughout school. Looking back, I do regret not doing more to try and put a stop to it. But at the time I was simply too afraid to tell anyone what was happening to me out of shame and humiliation, and I got the feeling it wouldn't have been taken seriously anyway. There is a part of me that felt like I deserved it at the time. But that was just my low self esteem playing tricks on me. Looking back, I know I didn't deserve it.
I was a bully and I did it because it made me feel powerful. It was a distraction as well, seeing as I didn't really like school. I had some easy targets and it's not hard to pick a few features of a person and just attack them. It did make me feel superior in the sense I could control their day.
Personally i was not bullied, but never bullied anyone. There was
a guy who was, and when older in his 20s he turned into the biggest
bully himself, he treats people badly now when older, now that i do not understand. Personally you do not deserve that, i seen kids being bullied who never did wrong, no one deserves
it. At 14 they should know better, you were 5, you hardly knew the difference
between right and wrong. You acted out of hurt and frustration, and that
is okay, but children who bully have issues, and that is something we
hardly understand when children ourselves. Just knowing its not you, hold your head up high, and try not to let them get to you, smile be strong, and know you are better.
That you are.
I was bullied in Elementary-High School and no, I didn't deserve it either. I was bullied because I didn't follow the herd like most kids do at that age. Nope, I did my own thing, which was band, choir and anything that had to do with the arts because I liked it. It made me happy and apparently being genuinely happy was uncool where I went to school.
My so-called "friends" at the time even joined in to be popular. I, being the shy, naive and stupid girl that I was just went with it because I was too much of a scaredy cat to stand up for myself. I eventually learned to stick up for myself once I realized that I don't deserve to be victimized for being myself. Now, I don't tolerate bullies and will stand up for anyone who can't do so themselves.
i have always felt that if you do bad bad will come back to you 2 fold. when i was in school i wasnt bullied and didnt bully, ive always felt for the other person, i went to a highschool where they had a special program for mentally retarded people, lots of kids would constantly make fun of them, and it would upset me to no end. i would stick up for them. kids can be so very cruel. i was always popular but not with one group, i just gave people the same respect they gave me. not that i was an angel or anything close. my mother was also very abusive and did horrid things to us. but that made me have empathy for people. if people are bullying you, i know it prob makes you feel like life sucks. but let them talk, run there mouths, dont show it bothers you it can be so hard. but just be you, dont try to act or do anything thats not you. confidence is one of the best qualitys you can have. even if you gotta fake it at first, keep your head up, and just do you. whoever doesnt like it. you shouldnt let haters change you. lastly in a couple years youll be out of school, and see how silly most of the stuff from scool was. and how much it does not matter after school. stay strong. i dont think your getting payback cause you where 5 its not like your still doing it. you understand it is wrong and hurtfull. so youve figured out things that your bullies still have not.
awwww, thanks. its truth. i think you where refering to my comment, if not sorry.lol
Yep, Karma's a ***** and all those bullies will eventually get what they deserve.
When I was 12 this guy and a couple of his buddies would push me around and say stuff to me. I tried to ignore it, one day they cornered me in the restroom. The guy hit me, and I was like "This don't hurt, why am I taking it." So punched him back, after I hit him a few times he just bailed and didn't bother me again.
Until I was about 14, I was the smallest boy in my classes. I had to be meaner than a striped-as*s snake or I would have been picked on forever. When someone tried to bully me, I made them sorry for it. Even in the second grade, I was made to stay after school for about 20 minutes to allow everyone else time to get home or way ahead of me. Some kids picked on me, and I made them really sorry for it, but I was the one that got into trouble.
I am always the victim just because I can be easily victimized, but the trick is not to majorly react because then they stop...
or even try using their offence as your attack by saying something like 'I know I am lol :P' sometimes works... ;)
i still got a report card from Kindergarten sayin i bit & kicked the other kids......i'm more mellow now
was your report card that bad?
No one deserves it- make it stop-talk to adults. My generation adults didn't know the damage bullies did. Bullies come from violent homes.
similar thing with me. I didn't know I was being a bully by excluding the new girl from my small school's clique. then I moved and became the new girl... at first accepted, then soon I was the outcast. so painful... the pain is hard to get over even 12 years later.
