Bullied...?

I have just recently come to terms with what I experienced and have finally decided to call it what is was...bullying. I was picked on from 2nd to 8th grade. I wasn't the best looking child, I couldn't have cared less about my appearance and I was naive sweet little girl so people took advantage of that. I was constantly picked on and put down by all the other kids. It wasn't so bad during elementary school but it got worse once I hit middle school. See I was one of the smarter kids and they kept all the smart kids in one big group. Well you'd think thatd be okay cause we were all nerds but no they all singled me out as the nerdiest of them all and made fun of me. Since we were together all day everyday there was no way to escape them. This went on until freshman year when we finally split up and I could escape. I regret never saying anything to my parents or teachers because maybe if I had it would've stopped. Bullying really does effect kids and it is a serious issue. I never said anything and never even admitted to myself that I was bullied because I always thought it wasn't that big of deal. But now I see how it has effected me and my relationships with people and it's not good. Bullying needs to be stopped.
