Ever since 3rd grade I was always bullied for my weight, how I looked, and the way I dressed. I was never the popular kid. As years went on it got worse. I never told anyone cause I figured no one would care. Once I hit 7th grade I noticing that I liked girls and guys. It worried me because I thought if someone were to find out I'd never be able to live it down. The bullying continued through middle school and that was when I started to cut. My mom caught me cutting and threatened to ground me and talk stuff away from me so instead of cutting I just stopped eating and that's when I began to lose weight. When I reached my first year of high school I finally decided to tell some friends that I was "Bisexual". One of my friends that I told would always kind of pick on me about it and tell other people and it really made me think down about myself. I am now a Senior in high school and to this day I still get bullied about my looks, my current weight, how i look and dress and for the fact that i like girls. I don't normally tell anyone because really not a lot of people actually take charge to help. They just say "everything will get better" or "just ignore it". Yes, I do have depression from everything and yes, sometimes I do still cut. When I see someone else get bullied I get mad. What's the point in bullying anyways? My advice is to stay strong and talk to someone. Get the word out that these things are happening and try to make a change. Yes, change doesn't come instantly, but work for it. We need to make this change so we don't lose any others. Bullying needs to stop. We are all human!
