Hello I’m a 17 year old girl here. My name is K. I’ve been bullied throughout my life. It hurts. It started in elementary. It wasn’t bad. One boy didn’t like me,one girl kept sticking out her tongue at me and one girl sometimes gives me mean looks. In middle school, people called me weird,ugly and ratchet. These 2 boys were laughing at me in the bus. I got mad and couldn’t stand getting bullied and I callled him ugly. He laughed and pointed at me because i was wearing glasses. But I didn’t really mean it! Only did it to stand up for myself. In high school, it was really bad. One boy pushed me in lunch, people were saying threats,calling me names,etc. In Ap art class, these girls were bullying me. One called me the b word and the f word. One girl stole one of my artwork. They’re pretending I stole it. The girl was fake whining. It made me feel worst and I did cry. These girls in lunch were bullying me too, they said hurtful things. One girl wanted to fight me. One other girl said I have dodo hair. It was insulting. One boy threatened to murder me in lunch. I suffered from OCD,anxiety and depression. I also had suicidal thoughts. I’m still a little now. I did cry in the school bathroom. If you’re getting bullied, seek for help. Ask someone you really trust. And you can get through it! Stay strong! Don’t bully back. It will make it worse. I’m nervous might get bullied in college. I know i am.
I had suffered from bullying when I was in elementary for being introverted; my classmates disrespect me, made fun of me, and called me names. Remembering my days of elementary school gave me horrible memories. In the beginning, they made me feel anxious and nervous. I was afraid of asking help from adults because I knew that it doesn’t stop the bullies from hurting me. I decided to ignore people who wanted to rouse a reaction out of me. They judge me for wearing my older sister’s old clothes and not spending money on unnecessary things. Despite the circumstances, I still managed to smile at my classmates who bullied me back in elementary. Being bullied, taught me to choose friends who like or love me for who I truly am, not by the mask I put on to just fit in with the group or by my social class. I learned that we don’t need to take vengeance on the bullies because payback is only for the unsophisticated and it doesn’t lead to a resolution. Everyone deserves to be respected, regardless of sex, race, social class, and physical appearance. No matter how good you are, people will always criticize you; learn how to distinguish between positive criticism and negative criticism. If you don’t feel comfortable depending on your parents, you can ask for guidance from your parents or teacher instead. You are awesome and extraordinary, that’s why bullies are jealous of you. 🙂
I don’t even know if my email will be shown or not but whatever. It’s a Tuesday night, I have a lot to do and I just suddenly got into this mood wherein I feel like the world hates me. I haven’t been bullied but I felt like I was because students at my school see me as a weirdo. Like… I just don’t have a pretty face that people want to look at… I just don’t have a dream body to show off with wonderful clothes and all that but I’m just like everyone else but I don’t think they see it that way. I suddenly don’t have he rights to be what I want to be— to express what I want to say and to do what I want to do because I am not pretty. Yesterday was the worst I felt because on a dance practice, we were asked to have a slight body contact… not even “body”… like… hands… we were— asked to hold hands— everybody was asked to hold hands. I mean if I were to ask myself I’m not unhygienic but their reaction as to holding my hands were as if I was a piece of rotten garbage which resulted to me feeling like it… was I really that gross and ugly? Sometimes I think to myself, are my “friends” just here because they pity me? Because if I didn’t have them I would have no one? Whenever I tell them things they don’t seem interested but they act like they do. I hate it. I hate life. Family problems on the other hand are worse but Imma let them pass because I could deal with them myself. Just the thought of people being grossed out by me is what made my already 0 confidence level go from that to the negatives, thanks people from my expensive unprofessional school with horrible students and teachers who lack both discipline and good attitude!
Hi, I’m Z. I’m 16 years old. At school, everyone would alienate me, they won’t let me be friends with them. And if I thought they were my friends, they were just faking it. I really don’t understand why they hate so much. Is it because I’m related to the school’s founder? Or that I smelled bad? Or that I lived the farthest from the school? Or that my family isn’t that rich compared to theirs? I just don’t understand. I endured all the bullying, sure it was hard at first hearing someone say that no one likes me in a group chat or they’d publicly talk bad things about me online, I endured it all and never told my parents. I don’t know why but I never had the confidence to tell them about my problems. I had so much trouble fitting in and trying so hard to be liked by everyone. No one in the school liked me, even my older sister was embarrassed that I was her sister. After 4 long years of enduring of being bullied, I tried opening up my problems to my parents. I thought they were going to comfort me, I thought they were going to give me advice, but I was wrong. They yelled at me and told me that it’s my fault as to why they don’t like me, and that I give them a bad vibe. During that time, all I was thinking was: when and where will I ever be safe to be open about how I feel? I remember when I had a problem way before my confrontation with them, they told me that they are always there to listen to my problems whenever I am in need of someone to talk to. But boy was I wrong.
Hi, I’m a 13 year old girl, who has been bullied since I started high school for the worst reason ever. People bully me because I’m ‘too skinny’ and ‘my hair is messy’ I don’t get it bullies say said I was attention seeking. They said drink bleach n stuff like that but I didn’t want to. My bullying hasn’t stopped but I will try to be strong x
I was a happy child. I had a good family and life. Until I entered elementary school. I was call slow, fat, stupid, ugly, and dumb. Boys would pretend to like me so they can just make their friends laugh. Girls would write bad letters to me on how I looked. I was so big and dark skinned. When they kept saying,” I was just playing with you.” It made things worse. One guy told me “I wish you was dead.” When I was in high school, I was in a terrible car accident. I fell in a nine foot ditch. I was left for dead. When I enter college, one guy told me to lose 50-75lbs in order to be more beautiful. And guys would go out with me. I would cry day and night. I hated myself. I just want to feel love and not be judged. Sometimes, I wish I was dead and my nightmares would be over!!!!!
Hi. I’m 12 years old. I’m not a teenager as you can see. I get bullied at school sometimes, but the ones that bully me the most are my friends and my best friend. Because of that I hurt myself. My best friend knows that but she still bullies me. In fact when she found out she started bullying me more. Well it’s not the first time that happened to me. My best friend in kindergarden would call me pregnant because I had a belly. I started thinking of suicidal thoughts when I was 9 years old. And every year got worse for me. Summer is especialy hard because I don’t go to school. I don’t like to go to school but my classmates are there for me so i feel happy. Drawing and listening to music just makes go away from reality and into another universe where it’s calm so that’s why I spend a lot of time drawing in my free time. I still get bullied but I’m happy because I have my classmates there for me.
Hi my name is R and I’m 13 years old,
My life has was really difficult I got bullied everyday and I have autism. People would say horrible stuff too me people called me ugly,fat,sket,clapped,slag,tissues,Witch, plastic and more. I got beaten up a few times people threatened me all the time. People have even waited outside of school to bully me they also bullied me on social media. I told my mum,dad and teachers my mum and dad went to the school loads of times to get the teachers to have a word with the people that were bullying me. The teachers didn’t do anything I started feeling depressed,uncomfortable,isolated,alone and scared I started self harming also I didn’t come into school sometimes because I was upset and scared to go in. I was getting worser and worser. eventually my mum and dad decided to put me In a different school. I’m much happier in my new school I’ve blocked all of the bully’s. My self esteem is very low still and I don’t like going out by myself. But I will get there. It will soon be okay believe in yourself don’t let anyone bring you down they are jealous of you. Make sure you tell someone if people are being horrible to you xx
I have been bullyed my whole time through elementary and JR. High school, now going to be High school. I have dealt with many different types,of bullying. I have been threatened about being hit, stabbed,and even killed. I have been pushed around many times where I even thought about taking my life… Loseing everything I had, just because of them. The bullies. I am girl. The only thing that made me different from one is that I am a tom boy… I am not one of the popular kids that have 5 pounds of make up on… I show my true self. I am always nice to others. I just have had no friends… Or true friends… They always picked on me and made me feel an inch high… I have been kicked and slapped my other boys and girls but I do not hit back… I never would think of myself that way. Now I am going to go to high school where more await for me… It dose not help that I am short and slightly overweight. So now I deal with more to come that just being threatened.. I may be in one of the situations I stated above… I would never hurt anyone… I have never bullied since I know what it feels like. When I stand up for others, it makes me get bullied more. I do not know what to do… I am feeling super nervous… They say “stick and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me” but…. This is not true. It hurts like a pin staving through the heart. My name is D. I have never bullied, or hurt anyone. I just hope I will have better years in high school than my other years…
I have been bullied. I witnessed bullying. I stand up to bullies. I am strong- I am a survivor. You are too! Stand up today.
