    When I was in 7th grade, I was bullied by people who were my best friends for 3 years. They would comment upon how I had my hair done that day, they would spread rumors about me, they called cuss words to my face, they would gossip about me to everyone. It got to the point where I just wanted to disappear. I wanted to leave the school I was attending. I wanted them to just go away, never talk about me, or call me names ever again. Sadly, it didn't work out that way. It got worse, worse than you can imagine. It started to follow me home. When I would check social media, something would be there for me to see. I became depressed, but I finally had enough. I reported them to my school's principal and things got much better 😉. I found some new friends and honestly, I don't care what anybody thinks of me. IF YOU'RE A BULLY, THINK ABOUT THE VICTIMS FEELINGS, AND IF YOUR A VICTIM, HANG IN THERE BECAUSE THINGS WILL GET BETTER!!!! Read more »

    It all started in 7th grade. I joined my school's golf team and my tormenter joined with me. I thought that would be my one thing where I could get away but I was sorely wrong. She would slam me into walls, slap me, punch me, call me all sorts of awful things, and she even threatened to beat me with golf clubs. As we were the only two girls on the team she turned my afternoons into a nightmare. After a while she even started chasing after my twin sister and abusing her. My self-confidence plummeted and I became anorexic and I still struggle with anorexia to this day. The years went by and the bullying continued. I quit the golf team to get away from her but that hasn't stopped anything. She follows me like a puppy if she finds me. I have no privacy with her around. Just recently I was slammed into a locker, pinned to the lockers, and clawed. She also punched me in the back of the head this morning. All of this because I stood up to her. She controls my sister as she will not stand up. She blames me for all of this and told me that I should quit letting this girl run my life. It's not easy to stand up and tell her to back off or stop, but I have. It always ends with more suffering on my end. The adults in the school system do nothing. They just shrug it off or tell the girl to stop. I was being brutally kicked and clawed at during my history class and nothing was done even though I raised my voice at the girl who would not stop. I'm sick of everything she calls me, says to me, and does to me. I've started ignoring her and standing up for myself. It's brutal but the attacks are becoming a little less consistent than they used to be. I know my sister and I are not her only victims. I want to end by saying if you witness something stand up and help the victim. I have wished for that so many times. If you are a victim and you see this stand up, use your voice, and get help. It won't be easy but it will be worth it. If you are a bully and you see this I really hope you look back, stop, and apologize. There is no excuse for treating people like this. I have seen and heard of many varying cases of bullying but the one thing they all have in common is making the victim feel helpless. We are not helpless but we could use a hand. Just stand up, speak out, and stop this. Honestly it's ridiculous that someone will make another human being feel so low. Read more »

    All my life, people treated me different because of my skin color. Calling me names like "Chinese Chicken Nugget" or "Chopstick". I hated it, but I never showed it. I missed my parents when they called me names. I have never met my parents and I cry at night because I always thought I did something wrong. I was fat and weird and I don't know but everyone targets me. It got so bad I was ready to die. No one understood me. I felt so alone. I couldn't take it. I cut myself and I was afraid to change for gym. I got in a fight and lost my friends because I was afraid they didn't like me anymore. The fight lasted months, who I thought were my friends ditched me. Always whispering about me. Telling me they cried in front of their parents. They don't even know what it feels like. To not have your parents their for your first day of school. To meet your first friends. To hear your first words. They lived their whole lives with their parents, and I don't even know who mine are. It makes me mad when kids at my school talk about their families and I don't know who mine is. Thanks for reading this. Read more »

    From 1st grade till I graduated high school... I was bullied. I was called terrible names, such as: untouchable, dog face, ugly duckling. You see I still have a bacteria in my body that causes cysts and boils. As a result I had them all over my face, chest, back and arms. I was called the untouchable. The last day of my Senior year of high school I was given a grocery bag full of coupons for soap and shampoo to get myself 'clean'. I never went to prom, homecoming or any high school dance. I let myself believe the names that I was called... Untouchable... I believed that long after high school. Here is thing I put my self value at those names. BUT IF YOU'RE BEING BULLIED AND BEING CALLED NAMES: DON'T BELIEVE THEM FOR A SECOND. YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH MORE. YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD. Believe it and know it. It took me so long to really believe that I wasn't the UNTOUCHABLE. I am amazing and I can conquer any obstacle that comes my way. If you're being bullied repeat this to yourself EVERYDAY: No matter how bad it is... Or how bad it'll get- I'M GOING TO MAKE IT. Read more »

    I was bullied in elementary school and in middle school because of my weight and how I look. Kids would laugh and point, make fun of what I wore. Seventh grade I changed… all I wore was dark clothes and hoodies. My hair that was down to my mid back was cut up to my ears, I started wearing tons of makeup to hide “the ugliness”. I had finally had enough and was looking for an escape, I started cutting myself when I was 12 years old, I drifted away from my family, I popped pills, and eventually tried to kill myself. Obviously I failed. Again in high school I changed but for the better for myself. I did become cold towards people, I trusted no one, I was stuck up, and all I did was my work then leave. I had one friend through this all and he watched and kept me going through it all taught me how to stand up for myself. Last year my junior year in high school my baby sister was being bullied and I guess that just would not do because I then was bullied by the mother of the child who was bullying my sister. I took it to the principal of my school he just dismissed it, In a way he bullied me also because later that day he called me to the office and yelled at me asking what I had said to those girls, when I said I had not even seen them he told me if he got another complaint I would be taken out in handcuffs. This year I was a victim of cyber bullying, I received messages from a girl telling me to kill myself the world would be better off and calling me names. That night a friend of mine sent me a picture of some texts. It was the girl bragging that she had made a fake account and told me to do that. I took that to my principal and he just dismissed it once again. Bullying in my school has become a normal thing and it makes me sick!! The principals and teachers just over look it. This is my last year at that school before I graduate and I plan to change the bullying problem. Read more »
