Your Stories

"In third grade, they threw out my shoes. In fifth grade, they threw out my retainer. While in class, they grabbed my crayons and stepped on them so I couldn't use them. In seventh grade, they beat me up. None of the schools I attended would do much to help, and even my doctor said I was simply being "antisocial". In eighth grade, the teacher ridiculed me for not hanging out with other kids. In ninth grade, I first thought about suicide and began making plans. By the end of that year, though, I learned that they - every single they - would always try to bully me no matter what happened in my life. And surprisingly, they finally left me alone. I wish I had a better explanation about what happened, why they stopped. Maybe they graduated. Maybe we finally got too old for that crap. Maybe it was because I finally made a friend, after years of not having one. I don't know. But the difference between being bullied and not being bullied is AMAZING."
