    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 »

    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 »

    Alright to start this off I lost two people to bullying. One was my 15 year old brother and my dad. I lost my brother, Jeffrey, 3 months ago. He was picked on for being skinny, being a little goofy, crying because he was so caring and a softy, being himself. I loved him. He was my sidekick. We did everything together. My mom, dad, and I reported it to the school who has a bullying police. They did absolutley nothing. Now on to my dad. We lost him less then a week ago. He lost his son, who just got close to him, they finially started doing more together, talking, doing silly stuff. They were amazing people . They both committed suicide. Now my mom and I are the only two left out of 4 people in our close knit family. We did everything together. I miss them like crazy. We lost two people because someone had to pick on my little brother, because someone had to belittle him, because he was himself. I am way against bullying and hope people underunderstand that bullying can tear a family apart. 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 »
