  • - Ashley


    Hi, my name is Ashley. I’m 13 and I live in Maryland. I have only ever told one person my story, and that is my best friend Elena. Now I am about to tell hundreds. My parents do not know that this is going on and if they do, they do not seem to care. Please do not judge me based on this because it is hard for me to talk about this. Therefore, this is my experience with bullying, depression, suicide and more. This is my story.

    I was bullied since the age if four. That is almost 10 years of bullying. Even at four people would find a way to bully me. Usually it was about my clothes and stuff. I did not really have many friends because of bullying and I still do not know. I would also be bullied a lot for hanging out with boys. I seemed to be the only girl who did not think that boys had cooties. The boys accepted me for a while. I was just one of the people. However, once dating started happening, the boys did not want me near them. It hurt.

    I remember that almost Every one of my best friends since preschool have either moved away or just stopped talking to me. I had a good friend in preschool named Cathleen. When I was about five, she moved away to Brazil. She eventually moved back when I was in fifth grade but she pretended not to know who I was. That hurt a lot.

    Soon I started kindergarten. It went pretty well and I had a few friends. Then in first grade things started to go downhill. I had to get lasses when I was in first grade and I was mortified. The second that I got onto the school bus that day, I heard someone shout from the back “HEY FOUR EYES” which made the entire bus break out into laughter. It was terrible.

    Then I met Elena. We instantly hit it off and it was nice to have someone on my side. She was being bullied as well for having glasses and being adopted. She could not take the criticism and such as well as I could so I stood up for her. For some reason I was able to stand up for her, but never for myself. Of course then the bullying started turning towards that, how I was a freak for standing up for Elena.

    As the years went by the bullying became worse and worse. People would find every little thing to pick on, from my personality, to the clothes I wore, to the grades I got. I am big on reading so they would always make fun of me for reading on the school bus. It was a nightmare. But I didn’t change for them, I didn’t try to be someone I wasn’t and I still don’t now.

    So now, I want to give people some advice…

    For the victims- I know that it seems hard right now but you CAN get through this. Talk to a parent, counselor, friend, teacher or someone you trust. In addition, just find something that makes you happy. Exercise, read, watch funny videos, talk to your friends, do whatever makes you happy. In addition, remember that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, no matter what anybody says.

    For the bully’s- I hope that in reading this, you see just how much your comments hurt. Even saying something that seems small, it can have a big impact on people. So please stop. Think of how you would feel if someone said things like that to you.

    For the viewers- If you see someone being bullied, please step in and help. You have no idea how much the victim wants someone on their side. Please don’t stand there and just watch. Help out. You could make a big impact.

    So in general help each other out. You could be the difference between life and death for people.

    So help stop bullying. Tell people my story, start campaigning at school and in your town. Cause we can all make a really big difference.

    Hope this inspired you!

    Love Always,
