    Living life on the edge - Me and my crazy life: Bullying

    I just wanted to start off this post by saying a massive thankyou to everyone who has read my blog so far! I really appreciate you all taking the time to read and comment on it! I hope you continue to enjoy it as much as I enjoy writing it!

    My experiences of being bullied in college:

    Today's post (as mentioned before) will be about my experiences of bullying in college.I was never bullied in high school so I won't comment on that.

    After I failed to get into A-Levels because my GCSE results weren't good enough, my only option was to go to college. So I applied and was accepted onto a BTEC Level 3 Engineering Course. Now the first year was perfectly fine. I had no issues at all and achieved the highest grade possible.
    Now the second year (which I'm on currently) is a different story! From September un November, everything was fine. But then my closest friend got an apprenticeship and left and then everyone turned against me!

    Everyone had been nice to me at that point, I'd been included in conversations that were had and I was never left behind when going to lunch.However, this all changed during the month of December. I went into college one morning and went into lesson. No one said anything to me, so I didn't say anything in return (I'm extremely quiet anyway). Then comes lunchtime. Now, I left the classroom and waited outside for everyone. They all came out in a big group, turned and stared at me and then literally ran away!!! I was confused as to why they did that. So I went and sat in my car alone and had lunch. Then the next day was the exact same! They knew I had parked in the college (parking is limited and none of them got spaces) but yet still chose to run away from me and walk in the pouring rain outside. So I got in my car and beeped my horn in anger when I drove past them. I may have also performed a inappropriate gesticulation!

    So after this I decided that I would go and enjoy lunch by myself (I was bored with them, they spent 100% of the time complaining about literally everything). But this wasn't the end. During lessons I noticed that people were speaking about me (indirectly). They were making fun of me for being quiet. I've been quiet my whole life and this was the first time that anyone had ever made fun of me for it in a non banterous manor. I was upset by this fact and went home feeling really down and dejected. From then on it only got more and more common. Everyone (and I mean everyone) on the course had turned against me! They were all taking the piss out of me being quiet. They said things like: "I'm gonna throw a party but no ones allowed to say anything incase *** speaks", "are you mentally ill, people shouldn't be this quiet, you must be mentally damaged" "your New Years resolution should be to speak" things along those lines!They then started asking really personal questions to only me! Things about relationships (sex mainly, whether I would do it fast, slow etc...), what celebrities I would have sex with, why I haven't got a girlfriend (then they'd take the piss because I haven't had a girlfriend before and that I've never had sex either. They use their girlfriends as sex toys, I'm strongly against that!!!). They asked me who my celebrity crush was (which is fair enough) so I told them someone I liked (not my favourite though) and since then they've taken the piss out of me for that too! They also ask me things about porn and masturbation! Is refuse to answer those (or I answer falsely to shut them up).They also try and touch me down below (and I mean physically going for it and attempting to get their hands down my pants!!! That's absolutely disgusting and out of order!!!).

    This happened non stop for around 3 months. It may not sound like much but it felt awful for me. Then just last week, within 5 minutes of entering the classroom I was called: Blind, Thick and was nearly punched! Yeah you read that right, punched!I was looking out of the window and someone thought I was looking at them. They then got super aggressive towards me before they saw a teacher coming towards the classroom (yup, we were unattended) and backed off!I'm unable to tell the teachers about this.

    1. Because they won't do anything because they like everyone else better than me (because they're not quiet)
    2. They're not very good at the confidential part of confidentiality.

    Everyone will find out and then I'll be beaten up, big time!!!It's gotten me really down in these recent months. All of there sniggering every time I actually say something! I can't share any of my ****ing interests without someone sniggering loudly about it!I just can't wait to get out of this hell hole! It's driving me crazy!!!

    That's all for this post! I've got plenty more to say on the matter but that will have to wait for future posts!

    I've got an announcement to make! I've received a request for a guest post on bullying (I'll keep the user anon for now).So the next post will be their story.

    I'm open for these requests. Just PM me if you're interested in adding a post to the blog on a related subject!

    As always, thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I really appreciate it!

    Next time: Guest Post!

    reading this is so upsetting, its like i felt every single word you wrote i cant believe how much you have gone through in the past few months. i cant believe they would say such vile things to you.

    and also, your classmates are awful, there has been a great deal of awareness on mental health and the affects it has on people, it sickens me how theyre taking the piss out of you for it. Mental health issues are so serious!

    I cant believe there are bullies out there :/ wtf is wrong with them.
    Stay strong, be positive..you dont deserve this at all!! no one does

    There are alot of good people out there and alot of people that care for you deeply!!

    Just do amazing on your course, your success will do all the talking <3

    Its not been great tbh and im looking forward to my apprenticeship!

    They seem to think its a joke. Ive been deeply offended by some of the stuff theyve said about people with mental illnesses! I wont say what it is.
    Im not gonna bother trying to explain it as that wont end well for me.

    It sucks doesnt it!
    Theyre just horrible people who find pleasure in bringing others down!


    Youre a good person!!!!! Youre amazing!

    They're just bullies I wouldn't take anything they say so seriously, also, I'm worried that they have such poor mentalities when it comes to stuff like mental health (and bullying too). Like do they even realise how damaging their words and actions are to others? They're so bloody ignorant, it's so frustrating :/

    And exactly so, look forward to your apprenticeship! You deserve it and you're doing so well! Well done

    These people will soon disappear in your life x when college is completed, you will probably never hear from them again x
