Seek Someone Out

Posted: 12/23/2013

I am 14 years old and can’t even begin to say how much being bullied has affected my life. It all started lasts year when a girl dropped a note on my desk telling me that I was a slut and a whore and to just go kill myself. After that, no one liked me or talked to me. I fell into depression and started cutting. I told my parents what was going on at school, but they didn’t listen until I tried to take my own life. After that, I was homeschooled for the rest of the year.

But it kept on going.

This year, I’ve been called names that wouldn't be appropriate to write, let alone say. I’ve received letters in my locker and on my desk calling me things like “emo b**ch” and threats like “if you don't kill yourself, we might kill you.” After a second attempt of committing suicide and lots of crying, my parents are having me homeschooled. I can’t even begin to imagine what they say about me.

But there is hope.

I know from experience how it feels to get bullied. It would have been bearable if I had at least one friend to help me through, but I didn’t. Seek someone out. It could be an older person, a counselor, or even your siblings. You have to speak up before it’s too late.
