    Made me feel pretty worthless and suicidal at the time. And I'm usually apprehensive around new social circles because I'm afraid that it may happen again. But the only good thing that has come from it is that I'm stronger(than yesterdaaaay...) than ever before, I came out much stronger as a result.

    IMO. I think getting bullied at a young age actually made me develop into a more mentally (and physically) stronger character. If not, I'd be with the counterproductive kids right now smoking weed and drinking alcohol 24/7.

    I got bullied a lot for not doing what the Queen Bee was doing, so they would pick on me, talk behind my back and comment on how I dressed and looked. I was very insecure and quite depressed for quite a while. I also had a guy mentally abuse me for a while which took it's toll.
    Today I've still got bursts of insecurity and being humiliated publically, even when it's with someone else, brings me down and embarrasses me to the extent where I crawl into a hole and cry. However most of the time I'm fine, because I know I'm better than that.

    Bullying really sucks, but sometimes it shows you who your true friends are - who's willing to stand up for you and have your back, and who's too weak to say anything and just stays passive.

    Wouldn't say it was bullying as such, just ignorant kids. I had lots of racial abuse in primary school as I was one of the few people who weren't white. Made me hate being black and wishing I was white for a long period of time before I realised these kids were just a product of what they learnt from their racist parents and peers.

    To keep things very brief - I was bullied at some stage of my life when I underperformed in an exam, them arrogant kids kept mocking me and it did hurt mentally. It also lowered my self esteem. I know underperforming in an exam isn't the end of the world but to have people mocking you just isn't right, bullying is simply bullying and it must stop! I stand by that.

    Do you think teachers do enough to stop bullying though?
