Ever since middle school, boys at my school have come up to me and said “My friend ____ likes you.” And as they say this to me, their friends, including the guy who “likes me”, are laughing. All I can do when this happens is walk away and ignore them, but it still hurts. They make me hate myself because I’ve never seen them do that to the pretty girls, so maybe I’m just ugly. I am so undesirable that I deserve to be picked on. I feel so powerless.
So I was in 4th grade and there was these 2 girls and they were best friends. And I guess i was their ” friend ” too. They would urge and put me in the middle of it, then one of them would call me names and hurt my feelings. But even now that I’m in 6th grade they still do the same old stuff. And it’s like all they do is manipulate and goof around.
I remember last year I was 12 and just started at new middle school. I felt alone and had no friends. I tried to sit with lunch with a group of girls I recognized. They always left me out and never listened to me. Everyone I talked to use to make fun of me. I then lost my self-esteem. Then, I acted reckless and lost my parents’ trust. If you are being bullied, stay strong. I know it is hard.
There is a kid I do not like but he always tries to follow me and it feels like he stalks me.
I used to go to an all-girls school and one of the biggest problems I faced there was the never-ending bullying I remember days where I come home crying. But what really affected me was when I first started high school i was very confident and wasn’t afraid of speaking my mind, I remember one day a girl sprayed me with sanitizer I reported her to a teacher, they didn’t believe me. From that day on that girl and a group of about 10 people, started to harass me . I reported them so many times that I can’t even count anymore. Nothing was done the school didn’t do anything to help me.
There was this girl in my high school school who I’d met just before going there. She was ok until I was like year 9 then she started hanging out with this girl who kept saying the n word to everyone. After a few days she wasn’t her friend anymore. And then she said I liked a boy she liked which was complete bs, she said I said it which I never. A few days later we were friends again. But a few weeks later her and her friend started harassing me over text saying I said things I never said and getting her friend to hate me. And she text me why she said the things, I said I never then she told me to leave her alone so she’s basically not my friend for no reason.
when I worked at my school this summer I was moving tables with a few kids in my class and I was having a good day but then one of the kids said I was autistic and my parents were lying to me. I was sad I went home and my mom said I was not autistic. I went to work the next day and said that my mom said I was not autistic.
It was a good day starting off but then a few kids walked up to me and called me names like fat and a heifer and it made me sad
For months now at my school I’ve been bullied by this group of girls, or as me and my friend who we’ll call Blondie like to refer to them as, the bully buddies.
They’ve been attacking me and Blondie and my other friend who we’ll call Blue Eyes, for months. The attacks range from physical violence to verbal threats to fake accusations. One day the leader, who we’ll call Snotface, threw all kinds of homophobic, racist, inappropriate, disrespectful comments at me and Blue Eyes. We reported Snotface and lo and behold, a teacher actually did something about it! Snotface and her friend (alias Two-Sided) spent the rest of the day in our vice principal’s office being questioned. Snotface’s parents and my parents were called in and Snotface was given a month of detention. The principal is also putting in measures to protect me Blondie and Blue Eyes from Snotface and Two-Sided. The moral of this story is: If you report someone once and nothing happens, KEEP TRYING. Tell as many people with as much description as you can, till the bullies get what’s coming to them. I know it’s cliche, but it’s true. And remember: you are smart, strong, beautiful, and loved. And don’t let anyone change that.
Hitting and hurting me so bad my heart was broken into 10 little million pieces, and I have lost my faith in people and the world too
