My Story

Almost every day my biggest fear was school, because there wasn’t a day that went by that I wouldn’t be bullied. I was a toy for boys that were 4 years older than me. They would call me every name under the sun, push me into lockers, embarrass me and threaten me. I hated school and every day was a struggle. When I went to bed I would pray to not wake up the next morning , I just wanted my life to come to an end. Everytime i looked in the mirror all i saw was a disgusting, unwanted and miserable girl. I was underweight because I would refuse to put any type of food near my mouth. Thinking about being dead and not having to worry about anything was the only good thought I had. After getting the serious help I needed I started to get better and things started improving. That’s just half the story but I’m sure you have better things to do than read it.
I used to be ashamed and embarrassed of telling my story but now I tell people because I want people to learn from it. Be fucking nice to each other, don’t bully, don’t call people names or pick on people for the way they look. keep your shitty opinions to yourself. Don’t feel the need to ruin someone’s life just because your having a bad day. I am at my best in life right now. I enjoy school and being around people and I am happy. Thank you to everyone who was there for me and who helped me get through that horrible stage in my life and show me what I am worth. You saved my life and if it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t be here living my life to the fullest

Have you ever felt like your not enough? Well, someone made me feel that way. I like this kid, lets call him j, so i started liking him a while ago, and he is in my friend group. He had this dare to like, hug me, and he couldve just done it quickly or put one arm around me, but he decides to run away, and say eww i dont wanna touch her… that made me feel horrible. I would look in the mirror, and think im the ugliest person ever. before him, i was real confident. But it all changed, he kept on doing that, and he made me feel more insecure. He didnt like me, he never did, he would always consider me a friend. I am a size 0, and i have 36 hips, so i wasnt fat. but he made me feel as if i wasnt active, i would get into the same sports as him, i would change myself for him, but it never would happen. He never liked me like that, I started to lose myself. my smile was becoming more and more fake, i thought i was more and more ugly in pictures. I would cry every night, i was trash to myself. I would work out everyday to become faster, and grow muscle in my arm to become stronger. Everything i did, he never liked me. Now, i still like him, and cant get out of being ‘ugly’, my smile is still fake, i just want to leave, and move away with my family, i make conversation with him, and he just leaves, leaves me sad and alone, and he doesnt care, he doesnt care for me, or anyone other than this other girl, i can never get anyone, sadly there isnt a happy ending to this, but i am working on my self confidence, no one else knows how i feel, no one, except me, no one knows i cry every night, how i look in the mirror in disgust, i have been avoiding mirrors, unless if i am doing my hair, it is taking less and less time to do my hair, and get ready, because i stop caring, i still have my outfits on point, and my hair curly, but one thing i want to change the most is my face, this other girl, lets call her r, gets every guy, every guy, she is athletic, and cna become friends with anyone, and can make any guy like her, he would rather spend time with her than me, and she has a bf, and she knows i like him, but she still decides to hang around him, and make me look stupid.. because i am, im an ugly, unathletic, fat, unlikable, girl. No one has liked me back, maybe its my personality, maybe it is how i act, maybe how i look, it would be better for everyone if i just leave them alone, no one likes me, no one at all.

every day’s the same
she fought to find her way
I am not the same, she says.
Why do I not know
the same information as the public schooled kids?
how can they use it against me?
I am not lesbian
I am not stupid
I am not a coward
I am not an idiot
Please don’t punish me
Please don’t hit me
I can’t help that I annoyed you.
I can’t help that my mom found out
what you did to me.
I didn’t tell, I swear.
She didn’t even notice the small scabs you left behind.
It wasn’t my idea to tell YOUR mom.
It wasn’t my idea for your mom to ground you.
You tried to be nice, for three days.
I’m sorry that you feel I am so inferior that you could
tell them about the time I cried.
I am inferior.
I am disloyal.
I left you behind.
I hope you feel better about yourself than you made me feel about myself.
I would never kill you. no matter how much I said I wanted to.
bye
-Sincerly,
J (girl)

Private School Bullying
Anonymous

Hello, I’m a 16 year old who went to a catholic private school. I went there, for 9th and 10th grade. I had the worst problem, I was bullied, called a coward by the Principal. He was the reason why I was found to have anxiety, he would tell the students that I was the worst person alive. He even told me that I should be in a mental hospital because we didn’t know what I had, because I started shaking, crying, breathing fast, and stressed. I sat down in lunch by myself, no one will talk to me. I would cry my eyes out. I try to ask for help but, no one helped me. He kicked me out because during 10th grade, a student decided to make a fake Instagram account to make fun of people. I told the principal and showed him my phone that, I don’t have data I only use the internet in the school. The school had a privacy deal, so Instagram and snapchat wouldn’t work. I told him that, but he later on in the week falsely accused me. My mother tried to talked to him about this problem, but he was rude. He even said he didn’t need proof, he knew it was me. He later on took me out of the school. We went to the diocese. The director of education blamed me and said it was all my fault. During that time, I lost my faith, but now I’ve regained it. Where I live has a church but the father stop speaking to me. So I left that church, to another catholic church 15 minutes away. The principal was the person who mentally abused me. Nobody did anything to help me. I wish I could forget this problem, but never I can. I wish, I can connect with someone… Or some hear my story.. The worst, thing is I’m a disabled girl. Yet, nobody tried helping me and caring about my situation.

Me on my first day of school
Anonymous

I was in school on my first day of with grade and this girl came up to me and said hi and she said she was my friend then a couple weeks later i found out she was talking smack about me and I stood up to her but then she started saying stuff to my face which made me mad I tried to stand up to her again but she had about five more real friends of her own with her and they were going to jump me but the teacher came and they got caught and got a warning from the principal. Then the next day it had been four weeks I was tired of sitting alone tried to talk to someone and made a real friend then we became bff’s and then they started to bully her and and I stood up to her cause my friend helped me but then she threatened me with a pair of scissors and said if I ever did that again she would kill me so I didn’t but then she threatened my friend all cause we were laughing and being too loud on the bus so I told her to leave us alone and she said no I asked why she started to bully me in the first place she said “because your different stupid and you act crazy” and because someone as joyful as me exists. Can you believe that she said it’s mostly cause someone so joyful like me exsists. I was hurt and she called me horrible names.

Victim of bullying
Anonymous

Middle school was a traumatic time in my life. I had no self esteem at all. I thought I was the most unattractive girl in the whole school. I started getting made fun of alot by girls and guys. I would be called ugly all the time. I got physically abused by a guy once on a bus ride to school one morning. The girls never hit me, but they would say hurtful things. My family and I tried to get the Principal to do something about the bullying. They always made it seem to always be my fault. The main bully, whose name I won’t mention, her aunt worked in the school office, so no one would stand up for me. They hated me at that school. The students and even the teachers. My grades suffered as much as my self esteem. I was the type of person that never bothered anyone, but they still taunted me. The mean things they said still haunt me. Bullying is very hurtful.
