When I was 13yrs. old, I was bullied for 4yrs. I was called so many names that were hurtful and I got really depressed to the point where I didn't want to live. I tried to attempt suicide which the whole entire school found out and they just laughed at me. To make matters worse, my dad didn't really care at all, it just seems like he cared but he would just put me down alot. I had some friends but they stop being my friends after what happen then I learned what it liked to be lonely. When I got into high school, I thought it be easy and people don't pick on me but they still did saying that "Special Ed kids are stupid people". I can't help having a learning disability. There was this one girl that was nice to me and she was always telling me, "You gotta smile and be happy. I thought I see her again but she committed suicide. She took her life and I don't know why she did it. She always showed that she was happy. It was hard. I cried when it happened. Its been an ongoing thing, I can tell people I am not depressed and I am happy but deep down inside I do feel like this. I lost alot of my teeth due to the contamination of the water which has caused me to wear dentures. I can't help that but being laughed at, just hurts. I'm older now but I still get bullied by my dad everyday, some of my co-workers and just people in general. I always feel like I don't fit in society cause I'm different and always will be.
So I was babysitting this 9 year old boy and he happens to be getting bullied at the school he currently goes to. When he told me this I couldn’t believe that he would get bullied and how they start at such a young age. We were in my car going up to his moms work to drop him off and he looked at me and told me that he doesn’t like the school he goes to and I had asked him why and he told me that kids just come up to him and call him names and sometimes even punch him for no reason and I told him that there is no reason for people to be bullying people it’s not nice and it hurts a lot of people’s feelings. Then he looked at me and told me that his mom told him that if someone comes up to him and hits him and he hits back and stands up for himself and gets suspended for hitting she would buy him ice cream.
I just don’t get how kids think its okay to make fun of each other it hurts and it leads to a lot of things like cutting, depression, and even killing yourself. NO ONE should be put in this situation and to be bullied.
