The bullying I went through started in 3rd grade and lasted until my Jr year in high school and at that point I was fed up so I stopped going to class because I didn't want to see the bullies in my classes and have to deal with the name calling and the threats so I failed all my classes and was too far behind and I had to drop out.. I let them get the best of me. The bullying started in 3rd grade over I don't know what they would just call me "gay" "faggot" "loser" "idiot" basically every name in the book you could use to break someone down. It wasn't so bad in elementary it was when I went to middle school it got worse. I started hanging with the "cool" "popular" kids but then this girl who was dating the most "popular" guy but she liked me so she dumped him for me so he started the rumor that ruined my life saying I was gay etc. After that my life got horrible in the school environment, I would get called names and it wouldn't just happen at school it would follow me home on the internet and text messages and all this lasted until my Jr year. I would get called names and get threatened to be killed, beat up etc everyday by people I don't even know it was horrible. My freshman year I made a twitter account and it met some cool people who I thought were my friends on there but weren't one of my "twitter friends" got mad because I was talking to one of them more than the other so they started a twitter account "Closetedgays" and went through my followers list and told all my followers (Which I had over 3,000) that I was a closeted gay. I couldn't escape bullying it was everywhere I went.. I did think of suicide for the longest time and was going to attempt it but I knew it had to get better at some point and music and my family are what kept me going. Now I'm away from those bullies and my life is at a better place now and it truly has gotten better. It always does. I am a survivor of bullying. I want to show people that it does get better and you don't have to resort to suicide. Like the saying goes "Don't do something permanent over something temporary"
