ever since I was in grade 1 I was bullied for the way I learn and the lifestyle now I’m in grade 9 and still fighting against the bully everyday of my life in school and at home I feel like dropping out cause of this I’m sick of it
I am a seventh grade student. I have had to protect myself since I was in first grade. There have been times where the bullies aren’t there when I want to speak out. Being bullied for years, has token its toll on me i have been mor isolated recently for fear that if I get too close to someone they will use what I have told them against me. I will be the kid who has a tight group of friends who I trust more than myself. I am a depressed child living through it slowly but surely. I want this to stop because I protect my friends at the cost of my happiness and life I protect them from comments that could make them beat a kid up but I keep them calm because if we do that we are no better than they are.
There was this one time i was in grade 4 and i told a girl i liked her scrunchie, she didn’t respond to me and i felt really embarrassed. After that experience, i decided to make mean remarks on her to which i now realize is bullying. I am now friends with her. I just had to let that out.
I have to admit I started off as a bully. But soon realized my best friend Kels was getting farther away with all the “popular girls”. I mean i was one of the “popular girls” but now not really. Me and her are not really friends anymore but I have made better friends. 🙂
In a quiet corner of Maplewood High School, a shy boy named Ethan endured the torment of relentless bullying. Every day, he faced ridicule and ridicule from his classmates, feeling like a fool.
One afternoon, while sitting alone at lunch, a kind-hearted girl named Lily noticed Ethan’s loneliness. She approached him with a friendly smile and introduced herself. Their conversations became a ray of light in Ethan’s dark days.
As time passed, Lily’s determination to stand up to bullying grew stronger. He gathered a small group of friends and together they came up with a plan to raise awareness about the harmful effects of bullying. They organized workshops, designed posters, and held assemblies to promote kindness and empathy.
Ethan, inspired by Lily’s courage, decided to share his own experiences. His heartfelt speech during an assembly moved the entire school. Many students who were previously unaware of the extent of their suffering were deeply affected.
The tide began to turn. More students rallied around Lily’s cause and the once divided school began to unite. The bullies, seeing the change in attitude, realized the error of their ways and began to change.
Over time, Ethan’s friendship with Lily blossomed. Their bond served as a testament to the power of compassion and understanding. Together, they transformed the culture of Maplewood High School, replacing cruelty with kindness.
In the end, Ethan and Lily’s story became a beacon of hope, teaching everyone that even in the darkest of times, a single act of friendship and the courage to stand up to bullying can create a ripple effect of positive change.
Sara is a girl who has a deficiency for which her classmates make fun of her but some girls helped her and made a billboard on this topic and this helped Sara to be more confident and improved her emotional stability
Last year I suffered bullying from my classmates because I listened to a k pop and they didn’t like it and that the boys seemed gay just because sometimes they wore skirts and during all that time every time someone spoke to me they said not to approach me because I’m a fan of “gay Chinese” and they repeated it so much that I stopped talking about them and just 9 months ago I talked about it again and they still kept making fun of me but I started to think that they just want to get attention by telling me that and the truth I don’t care what they say about it anymore because it’s my life, not theirs, and I decide what to listen to or not, and that’s how I left that fear of not talking about my tastes, that’s all, thanks for listening to me 🙂
A few weeks ago I found out 2 of my friends had been taking photos of me and sending them around to others. They also made a photo and video of me as a whale. I felt so alone and lost until I went to the police but the ADA says we can’t charge the girls with anything because this was the first time they did something. But recently they have been doing this to 2 other girls so we aren’t giving up!
It all started when I was in 5th grade. I was the new kid at my school and this kid would call me names and eventually tried to tackle me. at the start of sixth grade the kid got his friend to join along and they called me names like whale and worse and they said it right to my face in front of a lot of people. I never even acknowledged them they would just call me names and stuff. In seventh grade they were in my home room which made things a whole lot worse. They started saying even worse thing and doing even worse thing. they would throw food at me and throw other things at me. they also started saying I was fat, ugly, worthless they even told me to kill myself. But I never told a adult about any of this because I was scared that the situation would get worse. And because I told no one they got worse and worse. One of the kids moved but the other one would still sexually harrass me and I did nothing about it. But people started seeing this stuff happen like others in my classes. And one of my friends came up to me and said a lot of people have been noticing this and the vice principal is wondering if she should address this situation. And because I knew now I was not alone I said yes I was sick and tired of being harassed to the point were the teachers gave me a safe code if I even needed it and every class in the grade for academics has assigned seats. SO I had a meeting with the vice principal and she said she would deal with this. So today I use this safe word and wait for this kid to get what he deserves. And the meeting was only yesterday so I have been holding this in for almost 3 years.
I used to have a best friend who i had known since birth. Though one time i got placed in a class with one of her other best friends. At first i saw this as an opportunity to hopefully make new friends as i had always been very shy. But surprisingly she seemed to have a deep feeling of hatred towards me (still no idea why). She would try to take my only friend away from me and i would spend every break just walking circles around the playground on my own. That might sound exaggerated but its literally the only thing there was for me to do. Eventually her harted turned into gossiping and physical violence, eventually she managed to turn almost everyone in my class against me including my former best friend. I was extremely lonely and would often do stupid things to get attention from others so they would notice me. This went on for 8 years straight. One of the few things my bullies did was send me death threats and often curse at me on the playground. I still have a few scars from when i was bullied but most of them aren’t that noticeable luckily. I won’t get into too much detail about some of the things they did but it always happened on the playground during lunch breaks. That concerns me because none of the teachers ever cared. All they ever did was tell the bullies to say sorry and then patch me up with some bandaids. I was also a special needs kid as i had prescribed medicine and a few objects i needed in class. They would often trash my most important stuff and then just say it wasn’t them. They never really faced any consequences which is why it went on for so long. Cursing, kicking, spitting, pranking none of it was ever important to the teachers. I live in a small town so switching schools was never an option before. I did actually change schools eventually though. I’ve made a lot of friends and haven’t been bullied since. It’s still very hard though, i had little to no experience with friends going to my new school for the first time, so it was all very new to me and hard to process. Currently i am very happy and have a lot people that care about me :).
