This blog is to tell my story and raise awareness of what bullying puts people through. I’m telling my story to help other victims of bullying know that they are never going through this alone.
I’ve been bullied for 6 years, and i’m still fighting to get through it, but now with the add on of being depressed and very anxious, Because of the bullying i started to hurt myself, all because of what these bullies did and said to me. I’ve been in therapy for a long time, i got told once that i have to accept what has happened to me, but i can’t because i know that it shouldn’t of happened to me, and it shouldn’t happen to anyone.
They called me fat, so i stopped eating properly, i’m not actually fat, but i just wanted to get to a point where they would stop saying that i was fat. They called me ugly so i changed the way i look and dress, sometimes when i look at myself in a mirror i cry because they’ve torn apart my self confidence, i walk with my head down because i’m scared i’ll see them, or they’ll see me, and also because i got used to them trying to trip me up, so i had to always look at the floor to jump over their feet.
These people said to me that it would be good if i died, because of this comment and everything else they had done and said i became suicidal.
I always wonder what it would be like if i wasn’t bullied, would i be happy? confident?
Even though i’ve been through this i wouldn’t change my past at all, it has made me who i am today, and i’m happy with the way i treat people because i am so accepting, and i’ll be friends with anyone. I’d never hurt anyone because i know what its like to be hurt.
It hurts so much to have to pretend you don’t care about what they say to you or when you get told to just ‘ignore them’ its easier said than done.
“Stick and stones may break my bones but just your words could kill me”
Thank you bullies, you made me a better person.
