My Experiences With Bullying I have briefly mentioned experiencing bullying before, but after hearing about an incident in Netherlands of a young Tamil boy who took his life due to bullying, and receiving an email from a girl yesterday about similar issues she is facing, I thought I will write a blog about my thoughts on this, in the hope that this may create a ray of hope for anyone out there who feels what I felt many years ago.

Not just by fellow kids, but also the teachers, who isolated me and never included me in anything. When I started primary school, I was picked on immediately. Germany in the 90s was extremely racist.
I was called names just because of my skin tone. In my last year at primary school, I used to get beaten up during break, I used to go home with bruises, and my mum believed every story I told her.
My parents were never even aware of what went on at school. When I started high school, things got better, only to then be told that we are moving to England.
I hated the high school system here. Yes we had Uniforms, and the teachers had a lot more control over students and waited at the bus stops until every student got on, but that never stopped the bullies.
I was teased for the way I looked, for having a hairy upper lip, for the way I dressed, for the way I spoke, for not being academically smart.
Naturally I had no friends either. Not in Kindergarten, not in Primary school, and not during High School either. The only person I became friends with was also being bullied, so we were both always picked on.
I moved out, and initially made friends with the people I lived with, but very soon they made their own friends from their courses and I was left on my own again. I tried really hard to make friends in my course, but I really struggled. I hated having group work or a lab partner, as I was always the last person to be selected.
No one wanted to work with me. I still managed to make a few friends who I am still close with to this day. I was depressed, miserable, and just super insecure. Things never seemed to work out for me very well. And when you are this vulnerable and lonely, you do attract the wrong kind of guys, so please please do not make the same mistake.
It is better to be on your own, than wind up with a psycho boyfriend who will make you fell much worse about yourself than any of those bullies at school.
Do you know what I did about it? I learned to not care about them. I figured that a few years down the line none of these people are going to matter. I took a vow that I will make something of my life, and that I will be happy, content, successful, and achieve my goals.
I used to want those things, just so I can have people begging to be my friend. Today I have learned to do things on my own, to be independent, and to run my own business.
I achieved all the things I set out to achieve, and whoever stuck by me through this painful and long journey, are the ones I really regard as friends and who really matter to me.
To me, my parents and my cousins are still my number ones, and every one else I meet along the journey come and go, and I am content with that. People who want to be friends with you because of success or fame, are never really real friends. I have considered taking my life numerous times during those awful years.
I used to think no one would even notice if I am gone, and that I would probably enrich their lives by killing myself. I am telling you, I have never crossed paths with any of these bullies since leaving school, and I am glad that I never took my life for their satisfaction. Bullies make you believe that something is wrong with you, when in reality something is wrong with them.Aug 09, · I would like to share my bullying experiences with all of you.
Just as a reminder that if you are being bullied, that it will get better as time goes on. Let’s start out when it all began which.
Experiencing Bullying. Bullying affects everyone. Whether you’re the target, the bystander, or even the kid who picks on others, there’s something you can do to put an end to bullying.
This is an issue that affects a lot of people and most of them want it to stop too, so get together and start a bullying prevention program at school.
My Experiences With Bullying. I could write an entire essay of what you could do to those mean bullies, but stooping to their level is never wise.
We don’t know what they are going through nor why they are so bitter and unhappy. I am also about to leave my family and friends and move to another country where I am not going to know.
