In grammar school I was bullied on the bus by a group of girls who adored our bus driver, when I came to the defense of my younger brother (who unfortunately had behavior issues) and I made a mistake saying it was the driver's daughter that was involved but it turned out to be someone else. The bullying lasted until graduation from 8th grade but one of the girls, who wound up attending the same high school as me, wouldn't leave the incident in the past and continued to terrorize me until she graduated. Luckily I had friends but that feeling of not feeling safe stays with you. Even as an adult, I have been bullied on the job by women who form cliques, women who wish they had a certain trait you have that they don't and would consider me as a threat of some type. Getting help away from these people (such as a therapist to confide in, joining social groups away from the same world as bullies and getting involved in activities I enjoy) makes a HUGE difference because there are people out there that will like you no matter what and make wonderful friends. Don't be afraid to seek help from a therapist (esp the school guidance counselor). They are there to listen and be supportive. There were times in the past where I didn't want to go to school or to work and having a friendly, supportive, non-judgmental ear was a life saver. You are not alone!
