Hello, my name is Mike , a 15 year-old boy that lives in Greece. Im kinda chubby and really short. I remember getting bullied at 13 when I first joined Junior High School (after primary school). Many of the people that are taller with bigger body, started making fun of me because of my appearance. Firstly, that didnt bother me at all, but things got worse when these people called me names , laughed at me and also they even spread the hate to their friends. I tried to seem unbothered. After one year , they stopped callin' me fat or short, but they made up new ideas to make me sad and acomplish their objective. They attempted to point out my behaviour was looking "gay". I didnt get offended by it because I support homosexuallity. After some time , even my "friends" started calling me "faggot" and "gay". At first, I thought they were just teasing me for fun, but they continued. The worst thing, wasn't that I got like "insulted", but it was that I really had a different sexual preference (bisexual). I felt so uncomfortable that i started cutting. Fortunately, i stopped because i realised it didnt offer me something good, just pain. At this point, i wanted to shout to everybody, "I'm myself and you can't stop me", but I was too weak. After one year, it was happening the same, but I decided to talk to my best friends. They all seemed to respect my choise, but some of them were treating me differentely... I dont wanna tell them to stop, or complain to them. Well, I have talked with psychologists and they say that I lose myself on a tiny error. Please tell me your opinion about it :) I will really appreciate it :)
