I am in 7th grade. Last year in my old school I was bullied everyday. So much that I just wanted to kill myself. I used to be a very happy, very energetic girl, but when I got to that school...I didn't fit in. I was two weeks late, so everyone had their friends, and I was the outcast. I instantly got picked on, called names, and sometimes physically abused. People would push me, call me a slut, and other things. I felt worthless. Some people even said I should kill myself....just do the world a favor. For a while I believed that that was what I SHOULD do... My mom noticed that I was staying home "sick" a lot more than usual. She also noticed that I never talked anymore, or smiled, I would just get home and hide in my room. One day I had an argument with my only friend, I had said something I still regret to this day. I said I wish she would die. I felt so bad after I said it and instantly took it back, but it was to late. After that she turned EVERYONE against me...it didn't matter if I knew them or not, I was the common enemy. One day I ran to my room and just cried and cried. Finally my mom wondered what was going on, and talked to me...asked me what was going on. Once I told her, she had heard enough. She asked me what it would take to make me happy again...I asked her to switch schools...a school where all my elementary friends went...and my bestfriend. She agreed and signed me up to switch. My old school said I was faking it....that it wasn't really bullying because I never reported it. After I heard that I was sick to my stomach. I left that school and never looked back. It was the best decision I ever made. Now I have friends, and I see a kid that is alone or being bullied and I befriend them. I WILL STAND AGAINST BULLYING TO MY VERY LAST BREATH!!!
