My name is kaitlyn. I'm 15 and I'm in 10th. I remember getting bullied since 5th grade. That's when it got worse. From kindergarten to fifth people would make fun of how short I am. They would also make fun of my weight. Then when I went into middle school things went downhill from there. I started getting hit for no reason. I got pushed down the stairs. I was told I didn't belong because I was an outcast. Which was true. I'm not like all the other kids. I'm not a people person and I don't like coming out of my room. That continued on throughout the year. Then 7th grade came along. I went to a different school with a bunch of people I knew. I didn't have very many friends that were girls. I like hanging out with guys cause they were less drama at the time. So it was fine until about halfway through the year. I remember being in class and getting hit in the back of the head. I turned around and nobody was behind me. So I ignored it. Then when I looked forward I saw a piece of cardboard flying towards my face. It hit me right below my left eye. The only thing I remember is how could this get any worse. Everybody was laughing at me. Then I got on the bus to go home and just as I was getting off a textbook got thrown at my head. I remember running home crying. It was literally the worst day ever. So then eighth grade came along and everything was okay. Except I kept getting called fat and stopped eating. This year when I was in 9th grade, everything got worse. I've been told I'm stupid. I'm worthless. I've been told to kill myself. I try to ignore it but sometimes it gets worse. This year I had a friend that wasn't such a great one. Towards the end of the year she started bullying me. I didn't tell anybody because I tried to handle it myself. It went on for weeks. I finally told my mom. She came up to the school and got me because I didn't feel safe being there and I was in tears. I had to talk to the freshman principle. He kept saying he was going to do something about it but never did. Finally my dad found out cause my mom told him. He wasn't happy. I had to talk to the principle and had to explain what was going on. She excused me from my classes and let me go home. The school year finally ended. I couldn't remember being this happy in a long time. It had been a month of fun and no crying. Then yesterday ruined it all. I got bullied again. I thought why can't people just leave me alone. But what I realized is that no, it might not ever stop, but I won't give up. I have good friends and a good family. Try your best to stay strong. You are beautiful in every way. Don't let people bring you down, because it shows them it's bothering you.
