Age 15 from Kentucky
I started getting bullied in Middle school. At first, I didn't think much about it, but it continued to get worse. The words "ugly, fat, nasty, worthless, etc." played over and over in my head. In seventh grade, I made a new friend. She became my best friend. But her best friend moved back in town and she started hanging out with her more. Her friend began talking about me and she didn't stick up for me. Not even once that I know of. Then in seventh grade, two boys who continued with their jokes, even adding people into it made me want to end my life. But, the friend I was talking about earlier (my best friend) went to the guidance counselor and showed her a note, and in it I wrote "I want to die." The counselor talked to me, and my parents. The police were also involved and it did help. I'm in high school now, and I've made plenty of friend to help me along the way. And most of them are going through what I went through. My friends and I, we have scars. We help others along the way. It's hard, and I have my days. Who doesn't? At times, I still wake up and hate myself. But I'm overcoming it the best I can, and it's helping. After seeing my friend (Kelsey) get sent away for cutting herself, I realized I should stop. What if she killed herself? What if I did too? That's when I realized it's time to quit. But, I finally found my 2 very best friends. One is named Katie, the other Jake. I'm not going to put online why they have been bullied, but they've helped me out so much. No one should have to deal with bullying. If any of you are going through bullying, I'm so sorry. Suicide is NOT the answer. That's forever. But this "bullying" I know it will past. Find someone to talk to. Someone you can trust. Talk to someone, Anyone. Get help. Stomp Out Bullying!
