only you can make the change
Anonymous

I’ll be honest i wasn’t the smartest kid in middle school, consider me the goofball haha… but i was only like this till i got bullied for being myself , throughout middle and till my junior year of high school i was always judged for my looks, likings, and my weight. but honestly i let this get to me for too long. Hurting myself.. it’s not worth it only you can change who you are, you shouldn’t change yourself for others or let them see that what they say or do hurts you. instead don’t show them it hurts. be the bigger person. only you can love yourself and that’s all that matters . 🙂

my friends are bullies
Anonymous

it started 3 years ago since I got my friends who are bullying me until now, they are really mean to me but I don’t know why I trust them so much, I feel they’re really my friend who bullies me because I study so hard and not partying with them they were always saying to me “come on it will be fun studying is boring” also they said I have to drink a beer so I can have real fun, but I said to them no in an anger way and they should study too, that when they started to bully me, and say hurtful words to me, I cried so hard when I get home from school, my mom said to me “what’s wrong sweetie?”, then I stay silent without saying any word, my mom looked worried, and my dad always when I don’t answer mom he gets mad and sends me to my room, I cried so hard until it’s bedtime, I was already asleep, at the next day goes the same, then today I feel really sad.

Behind the Screen – A School Bullying Story
Anonymous

COVID-19 was difficult for us all, correct? As for me, I experienced a lot of emotional instability and an unstable self-image causing mental issues. I have experienced bullying from a young age but things got unmanageable during the pandemic. It started with receiving malicious comments through a group chat with girls in my friend circle. It started with one, then two. The countless acts of violence under the guise of friendship, rapidly impacted my grades, my emotions and caused a wavering sense of who I was. The cold looks, the taunting remarks, I always submitted work late, putting my time into the group chat. This wasn’t like me as I was and am a high achiever. Being naive, I didn’t tell anyone until my family and the school found out about the situation. Once restrictions eased, it was an opportunity for the bullying to become physical. In the schoolyard, I’d constantly get into physical fights leaving bruises and wounds, as well as faking a smile outside of the schoolyard. It almost seemed like I became the bully too after my infuriation and anxiousness got the best of me.
Looking back, I feared being excluded or disliked which is why I think I let bullying overpower me. I still have inconsistent mental health but I try to ameliorate it by keeping track of my thoughts and feelings. Three in five students in Australia have experienced bullying and it is crucial to take action towards this global issue.

From happy to depressed
Anonymous

I was a happy, extrovert boy til 3rd grade, then I got shifted to a new school in a new city, so called ‘best school’. I got bullied a lot. I don’t have friends, literally. It hurts me a lot.
Everyone have friends in my school and they celebrate their birthdays, I don’t have friends who even remember my name. It hurts me to such extent, that my mind has stopped working, as it used to be earlier. I am a multi-talented boy, but nobody knows it,and it hurts me a lot. I badly need a friend or someone who knows me.

Back when I was in like third grade it was hard, and especially since I didn’t know how to multiply. I usually cried a lot so I was an easy target for bullying. This class was really rude sometimes, if you wore anything girly you would spend your school free time in the corner of the room alone. I was also called fat and ugly, this shows that anyone is capable of being a bully. Sometimes it is for a reason so you should never bully back, and maybe you should think about what may be going on in their life, but never ever change yourself just because someone doesn’t like you. Be who you want to be and tell an adult if you are a victim of bullying, don’t make the mistake I made letting myself be bullied.

Hi, I’m in 7th grade and about to go into 8th. It’s been really fun but I had one thing that made me wanna end it. It is a kid named A. He has really turned me down and has even made me lose a lot of my popularity. He would even tell me to “Get lost fatty, no one likes u and will NEVER like you! Most times i normally cry myself to sleep. PLEASE STOP!

My story with bullying
Anonymous

This started when I was in 7th grade. I always get scared when it’s lunchtime bc there was a group of 9th grade students come to me and start to say harmful words to me and laugh (every day). Whenever I come home, I lock the room door and start crying. still there are some people that are bullying me but I should ignore them. When I remember that I start crying.

my bullying story

i am 14 years old and i had gone to an elementry-middle school since the 5h grade. It is a fairly small school and there was only 36 kids in my grade. From 5th-8th i was loved and treasured and had so many friends, that was until corona hit. During the protests many of them made racist jokes and i called them out on it. Since then my number and instagram has been leaked on social media, ive lost every single friend, i have become a shell of who i used to be and i am downright miserable. it got better for a while but they still talk about me almost a year later, i dont think anyone realizes the effects of cyberbullying until it happens to them.
