I Keep Trying

Posted: 5/17/2011

It all started when i just entered middle school. One day, I went to my PE class, during class, I started to cry because others wont let me join their group. When i started to cry, my PE teacher caught me crying and was really upset (upset as in angry at me) and told me that "if you want to cry, than i make you cry more" and told me to go to the principal office for crying in class. I actually skipped PE class to avoid it, but didn't. I was so scared of my future teachers. After that, I started to get bullied more and more. There's a couple of teachers said "loners strike again" and i heard them saying it, near me and my friend. Even the students and my classmates also verbal and mental abused/harassed me everyday. Some of the comments becomes more and more harsher everyday that one day I almost committed a suicide. Again in freshman year of high school, I was the target and people made me feel so discouraged that i also almost committed a suicide. Now, I'm trying to strong but its just so hard to keep in faith, but i know i have to try my best.

Home Schooled

Posted: 5/17/2011

When I was in Grade School. I was a victim of being bullied. It was about from either 3rd or 4th grade where it was starting. I've had people in school turn what seamed like all of my greatest friends against me, until what also seemed like I didn't have a friend in the world. I'd have people tell me that I was a loser, that I had people tell me that they had more friend then me, blah blah blah. Until I couldn't take it anymore so i decided to become home schooled. I was home schooled for 6th and 7th grade until a girl moved into my neighborhood and was telling me and convincing me to go back to public school for 8th grade.

She would say that she'd help me with anyone who would pick on me or yet bully me. Yet when I was fully convinced about going to public school again. The first few days and months of school went by OK. I remembered most of the kids that I used to go to school with, and it was getting kind of nice to get back in I've made new friends and got along pretty well with most of the kids, until this one girl started making fun of me and picking on me because of the way i laughed. I mean I laugh a lot even when things don't seem that funny. But the fact that she told me not to laugh became really hurt full. AND my neighbor who was sitting right next to me when this was happening, she would just sit their not even telling her off or anything. and i probably would have said something, but i was always afraid that if i did she would start a physical fight with me and that was the one thing that i didn't want to get caught up in.
It ended up to were she was kicking my chair and was pushing my chair in into my desk. It got to the point were i had to tell the principle and tell my teachers to switch all her classes so that non of them would be the same as mine. But even though i had one victim off my shoulder, another girl started picking on me. She would spread gossip about me and stuff like that. I ended up getting to the point where I started crying at the end of school.

So luckily my mom found this kind of a homeschooling program where it's still a public school but is done on your computer. So I joined that and now I am much happier and is making a lot more friends then I did. But have scars and marks, not to where you can see them but to where they still sting in my heart. I never want to go back to where i was ever again.

Will Always Remember

Posted: 5/17/2011

In the beginning of my 7th grade year, I was bullied and harassed by a couple kids. It hurt a lot, because they would make comments or throw something at me in the middle of class! One day, a teacher had to stand behind me for the WHOLE class to get them to stop. It was the most embarassing thing ever. I was so close to tears i had to look down the whole time.

But luckily, I got help with a school counselor and vice principal. So they stopped and now I'm not afraid to go to school anymore.

But I'm very lucky they stopped. Some teens won't stop at anything when it comes to bullying. It's very sad because bullying can lead to so many other bad scenarios. The person that is being bullied could start hurting themselves, others, or let the bully change them forever. What you hear in the news isn't covering everything thats happening. Teens take their  own lives because of bullying everyday.

And that is why bullying needs to stop. Teens need to realize that when they are a bully, they hurt the other person. They also make people think differently about them and may not be friends with them if theyre a bully. Some of the things they say or do can stick around with that person for forever. Even if the bully stops, they will always remember what happened and will be scarred for life.

A Real Story

Posted: 5/17/2011

well... my story is a little bit sad and at the same time it´s real.

In second year of high school i made a friendship between a sweet and sociable girl. among that year, she started to make new friends and socialize with them... but then, many friends started to tell me that she was talking very bad of myself and telling lies; ok, i mean that she told them that i was talking bad things of them... she made my life a complete disaster! i was definitely bad at that point that i didn't want to return to that school ever! well, time passed and started third year of high school... she started to make friendship with the worst person i´ve ever met... well, they (according to the meaning you already gave to me of cyber bullying) bullied me with a very popular internet side called Facebook. They put a lot of stupid commentaries, trying to make me feel bad; and actually they got it. They are best friends.... and until now they try to make me feel like the worst woman in the world... but now my personality started to become better each day! i´m stronger now. in that times, i cried everyday asking myself WHY ME?

Taking A Stand

Posted: 5/17/2011

I was never physically bullied, but i was verbally bullied. I was a little over weight in middle school and had acne and was not as "cool" as the others. They would push me around and make me do things for them and if i didn’t then they would call me names in front of everyone. The worst thing was to be standing in front of everyone feeling so vulnerable and having them all point and laugh. I would go to school and cry every day. School wasn’t a place I went to to learn, it was a place I went to to try and make it through one day without getting picked on. I would get called names, all the other girls would tell secrets and laugh and gossip. I kept thinking to myself "will this ever end." I think the word "popular" is over-rated. All I wanted was to fit in, I tried to make the others like me. Nothing worked, at the time I felt that there was nothing I could do, so i just stuck it out. I am now 18 and in college. A lot has changed about me since I was 11. When I see my classmates from back in middle school, they try to act like were friends and that they never bullied me. One example in particular I ran into a guy who I went to school with and we started talking and it surprised me, when he said "Alyssa, you’re so pretty, I am so sorry I was mean to you back then."  I was shocked because he knew that he was rude, but now that i am grown up and look different, he wants to be my friend. I am no longer bullied, but I want to stand up to it, because no one deserves to go through it. I know how bad it hurts. For some people it can lead to bad things, I was heartbroken when I heard about the fifth grader who hung himself at school. I have recently heard of his parents speaking up about it, and the other day I wore pink for the anti-bullying day. It’s important to me, I want to make a stand and use my story to stop this horrible action. The other day, I was telling my friends that I wanted to go around speaking about bullying and be there for kids who just need a friend. Then I heard of what y'all are doing, and I love it. I love that people are making a stand against bullying.

I Am Still Afraid

Posted: 5/17/2011

In 8th grade I was picked on by this girl named Lizbeth. She had friends of hers that I didn't even know picking on me and threatening to beat me up over gossip. I just graduated high school as a junior and to this day I pretty much keep to myself because of it. I don't look at high schoolers on the bus or anything because in a way I am still afraid, and it's a constant reminder of 8th grade.

I WAS the Bully

Posted: 5/17/2011

From preschool all through the first half of first grade, I was a bully.  When I was in KR, I would make fun of the other kids just to see what would happen, or because they talked weird or looked weird.  I would even talk back to the teachers! When I didn't get accepted back into that school (surprise, surprise), my mom took me to the school where she used to go, and things got a little better.  I would still get in trouble in kindergarten and first grade, but not as much.  In second grade, all of it suddenly stopped.  I don't really remember why, though.

How Bullying Makes Me Feel

Posted: 5/17/2011

Bullying makes me feel less than what I am. It makes me feel like I’m not wanted. Bullying does not make someone feel good, it hurts them deep down inside even if it doesn’t show. This thing called bullying makes me feel like a nobody. When I look around I see many people who are no different than me but I’m the one who feels this way. Bullying makes me feel exposed. Many kids love to make others feel uncomfortable. At times I feel depressed but I don’t talk about it, I just let it build up. I’m starting to feel confident because I see changes in some friends who may be in similar situations.
I go home and I see many people who love and care about me, but when I go places such as school I feel like other students judge me. It doesn’t feel nice but I deal with it. People stare at me and then smile or whisper. My classmates have bonded and the whole class gets along and acts like a family, but other kids make the situations worse. Sometimes I feel like I don’t care.
I don’t like coming to school every day having to be talked about. I want to be treated like everybody else. I want to feel like I do when I’m at home. I come to school to get an education, not to be judged. I deal with the judgment because I know that everybody’s not the same and I also know that everybody’s not going to like each other. I just don’t want to be bullied or see anyone else being bullied. I want to be treated with respect like everyone else.

Bullying

Posted: 5/17/2011

Always want to fight. Can't ever be nice. Punching, stomping, and taking lunch money. Is it because I'm little or because I can't fight. Why do you want to bully me that's just not nice. Scared to come to school because the bully's only pick on you because they think it's cool. Well that's not cool. Cool is being nice but bullies think otherwise that's why they want to fight. A bully's favorite sentence is "Is what you get me for lunch." After that they are chewing down on your food. Scared to tell someone because the bullies are going to knock you out. Tell someone and your worries about the bullies will be out.

Single, Lonely Life

Posted: 5/17/2011

I can’t help but to feel that no one’s there,
No one to show love, kindness, and care,
Being name called, laughed at, and pushed all around,
Almost as if everyone is putting me down,
Wanting someone to be there when I cry,
When everyone’s hurting my feelings making me want to die!
Everyday my life is getting less easy,
When all the stuck-up kids want to laugh and act cheesy,
Life is hard on me, especially not having a friend,
But hopefully all this bullying will come to an end.
