I was picked on since the 1st grade. I was tripped,pranked cruely, laughed at, told I was ugly every day. I dropped out of highschool because of bullying. Luckily I was never physically beaten but the emotional abuse can be just as bad. The worst part is that in middle school my "friends" bullied me and I didn't even know it. They had broken homes and I had wonderful parents and financial stability. I know they hated me for that. They stole from me, put me down, turned on me at the end, they used me, one of them even spread a rumor about me. My "best friend" tried to jump me but I was smart enough to not leve my house when she said she wanted to "talk" even after that I forgave them even though she never admitted to it I finally fit in with the strong people, or so I thought. They acted tough and I respected that. Ultimately I disrespected myself. I was never a violent or malitious person. I just wanted to be accepted. All of them ended up pregnant before 18 in horrible relationships, most of them ended up drug addicts, most of them except 1 went to jail, 1 became a prostitute, and 1 of them unfortunately died of a drug overdose. With God's grace and my great parents I got out. I think they hated me because they knew I was the 1 who was stronger. It still is in the back of my mind but I have all the friends in the world now. I have great social skills and I'm loved. Bullying is indescribably horrible. The saddest part is that when I think of these kids who took their own lives because of some stupid ignorant kids I think, if they would have waited,just a little longer, they could have had a great life too. A life with happiness and love and friends. Let's all share the success stories of victims and give them hope. After highschool is over they will finally be free. What's 4 years to the rest of your life?
