I was bullied at school wich is now over 20 years ago. Yet sometimes feels like yesterday. There was no physical bulling but verbal exept on 1 accasion she broke my ruler deliberetly. Not as bad as some of you out there Im sure but it still affects you all the same. It went on 4 years untill( oh yes !! there was hair pulling and shoving)I told my mother and she went 2 her and another ones houses. It stopped there and then so my advice???tell someone-someone who loves u. I told the teachers but they didn't care. They used 2 sit ME out of class well Im sure that made the bulling worse. Bullies r DEFINATELY cowards oh if only I cud find her now I wudn't half give it her-no violence though-that wud stoop me as low as she is/was. I tried 2 take my own life there were other factors 2 that made me try that but I believe bulling was THE most contibuting factor. Now I don't take any c..p from anyone. Although I went on 2 marry abit of a bully bu thats another story.
to date - in the recent news so called "proffesionals" say that it says that for kids who can "take it" bullying is GOOD for them. That it helps them to "know their place in society!!!!" hardens them!! they havent been bullied themselves have they.
