When I first moved into my town, I was bullied. This is no exaggeration. The only thing most of these kids knew about me was my name. Apparently that is all a bully needs to bully you. A title given to you to add a little more individuality. They would punch me, trip me, call me names. And the worst thing was this was at a daycare. For me, daycares were always a mandatory h*ll hole. Because my mother had to work to feed the family, daycares were always something I had to attend. At daycares, the "teachers" were basically there for one reason; to prevent murder. Otherwise, you were on your own. I went to daycare until I was 12. I was always teased about going because in my town, I'm one of the families whose parents are divorced and my over protective mother needed me somewhere I would be safe. But the thing is I wasn't safe. Once, I got so abused that a teacher actually noticed [which took a lot of tears and punches]. The way the problem was resolved was simply by saying "boys will be boys". That is the most ******** excuse anyone could give. Oh, so since we are boys, we can bully each other? And make each other want to jump off a cliff? I also remember another time when I was pushed up against a wall by a boy three years older than me. When a teacher walked by all she said was " is everything ok?" The boy said yes and walked off and that was that. I have also been punched in the face, kicked in multiple places, harassed, and generally abused. And the more I would just take it the more they would hurt me so one day I had enough and I punched back. And you know what? He just punched back until we got into a fight. The fight occurred right in front of a teacher but she did nothing. Thats when I realized that I can't always rely on teachers. So that is when I went to my mother and moved daycares. But the bullying didn't stop. It's like wherever I went they knew somehow I was the one they could bully. And you know what the solution was for me? I just took it. And eventually the bullies became too old to go to the daycare and I was the oldest. Sometimes only time can save someone. All you have to do is be patient.
