When I was in middle school, I was bullied. I didn't talk about it with my parents or friends, I really had no friends at all. I was an outcast, and all the popular girls hated me for absolutely no reason. I believe it was because I talked to the popular guys like people, and not some prey like the other girls. They would call me horrible names, things that weren't true. Eventually I told my parents, but it was after I secluded myself and was so far in depression, I thought there was no way out. My parents went to the school, all the school said was "we've heard this before, we'll talk to them" that never happened and it just got worse. Eventually, near the end of 8th grade, I got so sick of being called these names I took a stand. I turned around one day and said "call me that again, ill make sure you'll pay". I had never been in a fight in my life, it was really just an empty threat, but it made the bullying stop a little. Then I banded with some girls who used to live in my neighborhood, and it seemed to come to a cease fire. I'd see them in the hall last days of school, and they would just stare and whisper. It was my peace of mind. When high school came, if I saw anyone picking on someone I made sure to go to the bullied kids rescue, I knew what it was like, and I wouldn't let it happen to someone else. To this day i will intervene if I see bullying happening, people need to make a stand, and stick up for themselves, because there are not many people who will stand up for a cause, make a stand.
