my bullying experiences lasted all through elementary and is still going on now. i am 15 and every time i even talk about bullying i hide all the memories just come back. i was bullied in kindergarten because of my hair i have red hair and nobody liked it. i was called freak, ugly and that i didnt belong there. kids need to realize what they say hurts and it needs to stop!but it didnt just stop with students and kids. my grade one teacher started to pick on me telling me i was stupid and that my hair was a rats nest, i came home crying everyday. we moved and i thought that the bullying would be done, i was wrong it wasnt even far from done . i got to my new school and i thought i could make friends i tried so hard i found to girls that i though were my friends but they wernt they would say stuff to other people. i was alone again.. i kept telling myself maybe people just dont like. in grade 3 i finally found a friend that liked me he was different just like me he was bullied just like me. him and i were friends for so long but then came junior high it was worse i started hanging out with this girl she became my best friend or so i thought. she wasnt she just would take everything and just spread it around. i got called whore, fat, ugly, that i wasnt welcome, i represented the devil, it hurt a lot. i thought i found a guy that i liked and i asked him out and he said yes. we went out for almost a year then he cheated on me i was crushed, then he told me the only reason he went out with me was because he felt bad for me that hurt even worse. that year i started to become suicidal i thought many many times that i didnt want to be here. i became depressed stop talking to everyone. not even the guy i met in grade three talked to me because i was a freak. he started to hang out with all of the people that bullied him in elementary and i just cant forget the first time we met. this year the Dare To Care foundation came to my school and i got the honor to be in the small group session. that showed me that i am a somebody i am a human and people better start treating me with more respect im not going to be stepped on anymore. thank you for trying to stop this it needs to stop not now but right now!
