How I survived bullying in school through the years.
Anonymous

So do you know about those people who bully you? I was bullied by the ‘popular’ kids. They usually would usually call me ‘weird’ or other things. I would suddenly get followers then Then would unfollow me. Like a popular girl at my school did that to me. There were online bullies from my school and I confronted them but they kept on going with their behavior. I met an amazing group of friends who made my self-esteem much stronger. They would eat lunch with me, hang out with me, and do things that include me. Now, I’m a happy teen girl that is in school that has friends. You can start the difference if you are the bullied one. Bullies reading this, please change your behavior.

When I was in fifth grade, I was bullied by a group of girls and a few boys in my grade. They would say nice things sarcastically, and I would just brush them off. At home though, every night, I’d cry myself to sleep and I would think that I was ugly and not worth anything. I had to start seeing therapists because of my severe level of depression. I almost committed suicide that year, but having an amazing best friend helped a lot. My friend was super supportive of everything I believed in and wanted to help me to love a happier life. She was super kind and caring at all times. We both have each other, always. She kept me alive, and I am one of her biggest support systems ever. So THANK YOU to all of those loyal friends who are there for each other. For all of you being bullied: Keep being you. The universe has chosen you wisely. The universe chooses ones who can fight and live through the bullying and help others to be bullied, so instead of considering it a weakness, consider it a honor. You have been specially chosen as a responsible, and kind person who can help others. Also, never let the world wipe the smile from your face. You are beautiful and special, no matter what, and remember that the universe has given you a purpose. I believe in each and every one of you!! Keep on being you, and don’t let anyone change that! You are not alone. Always remember that there is always someone in this world who will love you no matter what, and you can always talk to them. Whether it be a best friend, parent, or counselor, they have your back. And if all else fails, all of us who have been bullied love you, even if we have never met you. We care for you and we have that special connection through experience, even if we have never met. I don’t care who you may be and where you may be from, or what you look like, I am here for you and I appreciate and care for you all. Just keep being yourself and know that you don’t need to change yourself, instead, the world should change their perspective. You are all wonderful, and amazing people with bright futures ahead of you. You will get through this. I am living proof that you can. I have faith in all of you. Just stay you and never change. <3<3 😀

Anonymous

Well, as all people here i have been also bullied…My story started when my teenage routine started….
I was bullied,first by my family,my teachers then my friends…I really don’t know why i call them my friends,actually they aren’t…I was like: I really wanted to die, and a lot of times i’ve told my parents bout this,but they never wanted to hear me…Friends started beating me , a guy who destroyed my life pushed me from the stairs,my teachers offended me so many times, and my parent’s idk they’ve always screamed into me…
The high school started,i was so lost, there were a long time that i hadn’t smile, i couldn’t trust anyone…I met a guy…The one who really wanted to know my story , i told him that i want to die, but he with his loyalty helped me to be who i am today..I believe,smile,laugh,enjoy life and do what i want…The guy is my bestie today….I met an another girl who showed me the big love that i needed, and i’m so thankful for forever…
Everyone needs a real bestie,i was so stupid that i’ve cared bout what other people said, now i’m back and i know that life sometimes is so hard but it dosen’t means that we should give up…!

When I started 6th Grade I was happy. Two weeks later I was depressed and suicidal. The thing that really struck me was that I didn’t know them and they didn’t know me! But that didn’t stop them, no they hit me and called me names I not dare write. One time the bully kicked me in the shin and I tripped. I asked him why he did that, he said because I was a fat nerd and I deserved it. Then he shoved me against the wall and told me my life was worthless and no one loved me. I asked how I could make him stop. He said to kill my self. I’ve always had severe anxiety and was afraid to tell anyone and when I did they told me to suck it up. When I finally told my parents, they contacted the school administration and they said they couldn’t do anything. So my parents decided to homeschool me and I’m still recovering from the bullying two years later and yet I don’t feel better.

I AM WORTH IT AND I AM PERFECT NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL SO START REALISING IT AND ENJOY 🙂

When i was in 7th grade i was getting bullied by this boy he used to follow me around and everything and call me names and at some points i did consider suicide i thought mabye the world would be better off without me and nobody would miss me but somedays i felt okay and like mabye my family would miss me so i kept going on i faked being sick for a whole week so i wouldnt have to go. It continued all throught 7th grade then in 8th grade it continued but got worse there were now rumors that i had slept with him and got pregnant so what did i do i begged my mom to let me do virtual school and she did i am now going back to public school and hoping things get better i still have suicidal thought and am very depressed but i wanted to share this so you would know your not alone.

I’ve come along way which I thank God because if it wasn’t for him then I don’t know where I would be at this moment.
When I was at secondary school, at that time I use to have low self esteem about myself because I always used to degrade myself, due to the way people from secondary school were mocking and bullying me about my acne. People used to call me ‘doctor dot’ or either ‘ugly’ and would do horrible things to me by pulling up my skirt etc. Their words really did hurt me which I wasn’t accepted and I would constantly cry, I used to hang around all by myself, spend the break by myself and even have lunch by myself. I remember someone telling me this ‘if you continue with these spots on your face you will not get married. There was a time where I bunked my lesson by locking myself inside the Ladies toilet because I couldn’t take the insults and mockings from people anymore, imagine you have not done nothing to people but people will just have to victimise you for no reason. I used to look at myself in front of the mirror and tell myself I am ugly because I allowed people’s negative word to dominate me which I was a very weak person I will even ask God, ‘why was I created like this?’. My advisor who was like a mother to me which she never gave up on me will advise and motivate me constantly and tell me that I’m beautiful. From time to time while I was growing up I was rebuilding my confidence and learning to disallow people’s negative word to waterdown my greatness. I thank God for making me the woman that I am today, because I believe that God did not make a mistake to create me, for he has wonderful plans for me. For the best is yet to come! Bullies never win because they are weak, learn to defend yourself and don’t allow people’s negative word to waterdown your greatness.
Remember that you are beautiful!

I hate myself
Living is hard but I don’t want to die
I’m not suicidal, just tired

When counsellors come to class
Tell us we should have fun,
That school should be a good time

I laugh

I hear voices in my head
Telling me “you’re nothing”
Reliving my worst memories

I’ll be doing some everyday task
But I can’t because all I can think
Is “you’re nothing”

I cry out, the pain too much
Will someone hear?
But no one cares

“Speak out, don’t silence your voice”
They say
But when I do, they only laugh

“Look at her attention-seeking self.
Using poetry? How cliché.”
But it’s the only way I can speak

Helphelphelphelphelp

I hate myself
Living is too hard but I don’t want to die
I’m not suicidal, just tired.
