I've had plenty of experiences with bullying. Plenty.
I used to get picked on a lot from even Day Care when I was around four to seventh grade. Eighth and ninth, I admit I was sort of doing the teasing. I went too far with some jokes with a friend, Rachael (but I did wish she sat me down and told me about it instead of telling other people who got in my face a day later), and last year I called this one boy, "Little Dickless Duffy" because he made me mad about something, and everyone ended up calling him that.
I think bullying is a harrowing epidemic, and it needs to be stopped. In the end, it's not fun being the victim or the bully. As a victim, you go through life thinking you're never good enough or who will make fun of me this school year? As a bully, after you mature a little you'll be aware that you really hurt someone, and that this someone will remember what you did to them forever. I do wish I could have the chance to apologize to Duffy (Yes, that's his name). But I don't see him a lot now.
bullying is actually disgusting and so disrespectful!
yeah, some people are so rude to others, doesn't mean you have to throw it back in their face, they might be going through a rough stage in their life! you dont really know me, you know that girl you just called 'fat' yeah she might be dealing with her weight right now, you just dont know. that girl you just called 'ugly' might have so little self-confidence. and never ever talk about someones family! thats worse than talking about them! i have no respect for anybody that bullys, they are so sick! tbh, how can someone live with themself knowing they're doing this to innocent people? yeah, some of them might be 'annoying' sometimes, doesnt mean you have to verbally or physically bully them, please one day just take a step back, and think about it first!
I've been bullied at school since everyone found out my last name was Shepherd (altered spelling), which was the common thing they'd tease me about. I seriously think kids need to get over themselves and realize that making fun of or beating up on others gets them nowhere in life.
I hate it.Ive been bullied a couple times at my school.On the news once,it showed a girl being bullied by to guys,and a couple weeks later,she brought a gun with her to school and when they started bullying her again,she brought it out,i dont think anyone wants that to happen to them.STOP THE BULLYING!
In my opinion, people bully others to make themselves feel important and big. They probably have a low self esteem and want to be known as a srong person....The best thing you can do to a bully is ignore them...if they get physical, tell someone
I've been bullyied since 3rd grade and up *sighs* The girls, at leats most, Are jerks to girls who arent all about make-up or style. I don't really care bout that much, but My friend teased me and called me a "nerd" cuz im smart and I thought that was a little bullying and I have glasses :<
I don't think so, I have stood up for myself before but only a couple times.
I think it's a negative damage to anyone. It can cause low self-esteem, loniness and many other things. I'v been bulied and I think the bully's just want to power up there "own" selfesteem, or they just like to be a Jerk
Most adults and parents see bullying as normal child behavior, as playground bullies. However, the bullying behavior in question is one that attacks another person's psyche.
Compare the situation to TV commercials; the more an advertisement is played, the more believable it sounds. As time progresses the commercial will become more and more convincing. Same with bullying. The more peers call someone a name (ugly, fat, dumb, etc.) the more believable the comments become.
As you can see, this can really mess with a person's head. It becomes harder and harder to brush off the insults as if they were no big deal.
My one and only piece of advice would be to make it look like it is not affective. Like you didn't hear it. Don't retaliate. Don't take it. Carry on with your own life. Focus on something else. Don't let your decisions revolve around what someone might think of you. (i'm not wearing this shirt because it makes me look like a whore--at least thats what she said.)
Wear whatever, eat whatever, and say whatever you normally do. Just don't stoop to their level. Because you ARE better than that.
