I am being bullied at school right now and i just cant take it anymore. It;s so hard because people are being mean and aggresive and disrespectful to me and i am afraid to speak...I just need someone... :'(

I was bullied in High School, I thought it would end once you become an adult. Not a lot of people realize that a lot of adults also do this to one another. No one should ever have to go through this, no one should ever be put down, because you are your own individual and special in your own way. We shouldn't accept this kind of behavior at all.
