    I'm don't really remember personally attacking one but I probably hurt some people's feelings by accident or thought something I said was funny when it wasn't in high school.

    When people bullied me I mostly had racist remarks, especially when I was young, or people saying I had an ugly face, etc. I also had some random girls try to fight me after some rumour started. Girls can be vicious.

    Bullied for four years at high school. Mocked for wanting to do well, getting good grades, being quiet and somewhat mature. This entailed being called names that weren't exactly highly creative, the odd thing thrown at my head, occasionally being shoved, etc. and generally having to face all of it alone. It gradually destroyed my confidence, I felt worthless, I got bad anxiety and became pretty depressed and I nearly threw my future away.

    A couple of years down the line, I'm doing well at a good private school and I'm heading to New York next year, and staying in the US to study at university. I'm happy, and a hell of a lot stronger than I was before the bullying.
    Said bullies work in Tescos/ are unemployed, still resemble tangerines and have a couple of kids between them, now living on the local council estate.

    Bullied throughout most of secondary school. Destroyed confidence, missed many days of school because of it. Not going to go into specific but the bully died (not joking) and one got hit by a van and put in a wheelchair for a while.

    Bullied severely for years at primary school. Destroyed my confidence and my social skills. I had no friends and I felt like a complete outsider. Secondary school was not as bad because I had friends by then.

    However, the people who made my life a misery in primary school also went to my secondary school so the bullying started again. Unfortunately my bullies were not the steriotypical bullies (big and stupid). They were smart so were in all my classes later in secondary school. The cowards wouldn't dare hit me as I am quite tall, but they were persistant in making my life a living hell.

    When I started 6th form the bullying completely stopped. I felt less like an outsider and I had a chance to reflect on what the years of bullying have done to me. I am quite a friendly person but I have a negative view on people in general. It has led to my inability to get a girlfriend, which now seems to be having a negative effect on my mental health (not depression, but something).

    For people who think bullying builds character, think again!

    I got bullied for a few years in secondary school for being socially inept. All the people who did it have gone now though, since I'm repeating a year. I lift now, though. I don't think many people would dare bully me now, lol. feelsgoodman.

    My mom only had one eye. I hated her... she was such an embarrassment. She cooked for students & teachers to support the family. There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me.

    I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me?

    I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out.

    The next day at school one of my classmates said, "EEEE, your mom only has one eye!"

    I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted my mom to just disappear.

    So I confronted her that day and said, " If you're only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don 't you just die?!!!"

    My mom did not respond...

    I didn't even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to her feelings. I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her.

    So I studied real hard, got a chance to go to Singapore to study.

    Then, I got married.
    I bought a house of my own.
    I had kids of my own.
    I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts

    Then one day, my mother came to visit me. She hadn't seen me in years and she didn't even meet her grandchildren. When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited.

    I screamed at her, "How dare you come to my house and scare my children! GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!"

    And to this, my mother quietly answered, "Oh, I'm so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address," and she disappeared out of sight.

    One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house in Singapore. So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip.

    After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity. My neighbors said that she died.

    I did not shed a single tear. They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have. "

    Mom's Letter:

    "My dearest son,
    I think of you all the time. I'm sorry that I came to Singapore and scared your children. I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you. I'm sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up. You see........when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mother, I couldn't stand watching you having to grow up with one eye.

    So I gave you mine.

    I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye. With my love to you,

    Your mother.

    And my neck also clicks ever since I was punched by this guy for no reason whatsoever.

    Stabbed a kid in the leg. In my defence, the boy had been bullying me for a while, and he went one snide remark to far. It felt good, empowering.
    (stabbed him with a parker pen, not a knife, not that it makes what i did any less nasty, i would apologize if i ever saw him again)
    I was thinking "I ate his liver with some fava beans" when I read that bit.lol

    I experienced bullying for the first time during year 7 which is when we moved to England. Being the foreign, quiet, shy girl with glasses (typical nerd look? xD) triggered it, methinks. Some kids would mock me (ching chong chang - I'm south-east asian. ) and it's usually verbal. The only time it became physical was when one boy was taunting me and then pulled my hairband off my hair.

    Other than that, I've always steered off any problem so I was very under the radar. Met some friends and it was all a little better, but still a few jokes on my behalf. Post high-school, I haven't had any problem with bullying although I have had trouble socialising so I have very few friends apart from those I've made in high-school.

    I was teased in the kindergarten and primary school, in secondary school they bullies even started physically abuse me. I somehow connected it to me starting wearing glasses, but it was not only that.
    I couldn't tell anyone what I was going through and even planed suicide when I was 13. Unlike Casey Heynes I did never fight back, I couldn't, being a weak girl against at least two guys would make it impossible.
    Most of the girls laughed at me for being "flat" and "tomboy".

    At high school (year 10) I started a new page, but I was always afraid it could come back. Still I'm sometimes feel shy and uncomfortable wearing glasses or wearing swimming suit (I am very skinny).
