    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 »

    Back in the 7th grade, I was bullied the popular kids called me things like "stupid" and "retard" because of my autism, every time I told them to stop they'd call me worse names, one time a girl in my class went up to me and said "no one likes you" for no reason! I remember another time a boy threw rocks at me, I tried telling the teacher about but they never did anything about it, I used to come home crying because of the bullying and I didn't have very few friends. I'm older now and I want to tell anyone else who's. Been bullied to keep your head up high, bullies are people who want to make you feel bad to make. Themselves feel good you're prefect just the way you are and no one has the right to make you feel horrible about yourself, to anyone who is a bully I want you to stop it's not cool or funny to be mean to other people some of the things you say can really hurt someone.

    It started my sophomore year when I was 16. I had been attending a performing arts high school, but became very sick and had to switch to a regular high school. I knew only a few people, but made friends very quickly. I started talking to a boy that was a year older than me, and that was probably the worst thing to ever happen to me. His group of friends started tweeting mean things about me, and he just stopped talking to me. Everyone kept saying that it would just blow over, but it only got worse. My closest group of friends were guys, which didn't help anything. There were rumors that I hooked up with the entire hockey team, that I had sex with 4 boys in one night, the list went on and on. Everyone called me the slut. The girls in my grade stopped talking to me, rather than sticking up for me, in fear that they would be treated the same way. I completely shut down. I didn't try in school, I didn't communicate with my parents, I didn't hang out with anyone. And from there it only got worse. People said I was a "thirsty bitch" and a "puck slut" and that I "transferred schools because I had gone through all of the guys at my old school". Then, the night before the last day of school, my school has a tradition where everyone goes out to egg each other's houses. My house was targeted by everyone. Only, they took it to the extreme. They had eggs, paintballs, and I later found out that they were planning on burning "slut" into my yard. Someone drove by and saw me outside; they called me a "f*cking slut". Then all of a sudden about 6 cars full of people pulled up to my house. Things along the lines of "let's f*ck this bitches house up" were being said. Thank God they all got scared when they saw me and my parents outside. We called the cops and the cops stayed outside my house the rest of the night to make sure they didn't come back. On the last day of school, the upperclassmen lined the sidewalks as we walked in. They cheered for everyone. And then when I walked through I got booed. The teachers outside didn't do anything. People started tweeting at me saying I was a bitch and what not. Girls were looking for me supposedly so they could start a fight with me. A total of maybe 3 people talked to me that day. I was numb. I didn't cry once that day. I didn't eat. I didn't pay attention in class. I was ready to give up. And if it weren't for the boy who came over and apologized, who is now my absolute best friend, I wouldn't be able to tell this story today. I confronted many people about everything. Some apologize, some still act like I'm worthless, and some act like it never happened. I pray to God that no one ever gets treated the way I did. That no one ever feels as worthless as I did. I'm sick of my school not doing anything. I want to help Stomp Out Bullying. Read more »
