Unfortunatly I've become so paranoid of people I don't really have very many friends and I dropped out of high school after 9th grade. Im going to be taking my GED test pretty soon, I hope I pass so I can get my life back on the right track. Im still very angry at the way I was treated, but I don't hate the people who did it to me. I was never physically bullied, but I took alot of verbal abuse. Im hoping that when I get into a college that the people will be mature and not act the same way they did in school.

Awww....I hate to hear this story! Actually, I don`t like to hear about any of them, but this one saddened my heart.

I was bullied in school a lot. My mom used to say she'd pack lunch not for me but for the bully. But revenge is mine the Cat said. In a few years I outgrew and outweighted my bullies and I delivered them a message: Thou Shalt Not 'F' Aroundth With The Cat Anymore.

I was bullied in 8th grade. It was horrible. I was chubby in that in between stage of puberty. The called me Wilbur the pig. Anyhow, we moved and I went to a different high school. I went back to the area that I went to 8th grade in. I bumped into some of the ppl that made fun of me. They looked at me weighing 115 and 5'4" and said oh my gosh, you look wonderful! Guess what they looked like? They were the overweight, sloppy looking ones.

Default my tormentor

provoked me so i had enough and k nocked his books out of his hands. he did nothing. then he and some kids showed up when my folks were out ringing the doorbell multiple times and throwing stuff at the house. then all of a sudden that was the end. bullying lasted from the fall of 75 to the summer of 76. his dad passed when he was 8. i think that may have had something to do with his acting out stuff

Yes, I was bullied in elementary. I was called a "wetb@c*", "illegal sp#c", and other terrible names. The funny thing is this was coming from other Hispanic students
It lasted until I was in the 6th grade. 7th grade was great! I was filling out nicely and had lots of friends.

The girls who wanted to beat me up in 5th grade are all fat, nobody's now

I wasn't physically bullied much, although two girls I thought were my friends pushed me off my bike onto some rocks when I was in 2nd grade. They told me they wanted to show me something, and I followed them to the rock pile. I don't know why they did that, but looking back, they were very messed up little girls.

I changed schools in third grade and clashed with a girl for the next four years. I don't know why we hated one another, but we did. She was rich and popular. I was not. She formed the "Anti-Julia Club," and she and the other girls would laugh and tell me they were having a meeting. Her birthday parties were always lavish affairs (from what I'd hear), and I was literally the only person in class not invited.

I was skinnyin grade school, with a nose too big for my skinny face, and ears that stuck out "like two doors on a taxicab," as my grandpa would say (all the very tall people in my family get those ears), so I got called Dumbo a lot. I went by Julie at the time, so I was Droolie and Foolie and Stoolie and Ghoulie. Ugh ... in third grade, I liked a boy who had the nicest freckles, and he found out. He was the one who started calling me Dumbo.

Being a kid sucked. People who say it's the happiest time of your life are full of it.

I was bullied, mostly in junior high type stuff and some early highschool. I was pretty nerdy and raised strict christian, very reserved so I didn't get out too much. In highschool I got into wrestling and filled out a bit and that stuff stopped after I gave one bully a good beat-down.

I grew up in a small town and my particular graduating class was populated by some really awful individuals. My sister got bullied too...her class had an awful clique of girls in it. Today she is gorgeous, great family (except her butt head brother lol) and career. She still bears some animosity towards some of those girls.

wow people here were really bullied.

im suprised. but it makes sense.

in another thread about personality types, i was really suprised by how many people were introverts.

it seems the internet and these forums are full of intorverted/bullied folk.

interesting, since i wasnt bullied and i am quite the extrovert.
very eye opening.
thanks all.

The bullies grow up to be arrogant and narcissistic adults with little or no conscience. You can't change people, they just group together where they will be protected by the team, the group or some organization or some image of perfection and goodness.
