    My very first bullying experiences started from the 1st grade itself right to the 6th grade.

    “Ugly, fat, mean, loner” was beginning to replace my actual name and from there on, those words were all I am to kids. I never had friends, not even one. Each time I did they would backstab me in the back and spread rumors as to where I had been too desperate for a little company that I had begged for them to befriend me. From the 4th grade, rumors of me discharging farts every 2 seconds didn’t take long to escalate quickly and from there U was officially known as the “farting machine”.

    Both boys and girls in my class and in other classes would use this as an excuse to taunt me; letting me wallow in depths of insecurities, low self esteem and hurt and as a reason to not sit next to me in classes leaving me to myself or to not partner up with me in assignments/projects.

    This continued all the way up to the 6th grade and I did nothing but endure those harsh insults. Eventually it was time for junior high and I switched schools, met new people and ended the era from being a bully victim to a new era of being a normal person for once. Having real friends in school for the first time in my life was a breath of fresh air and for once I took up the courage to be a participating student instead of fearing I’ll be sneered at for even showing up at recruitments.

    My very mistake, as I look back on those years was to not ask for help nor open up to anyone about it. I was embarrassed and afraid that people may judge me for getting through this and that I was all alone. I was wrong. There are others whom I wasn’t aware of going through this just as I had and had I asked for help it would have made it a hell of a lot easier.

    So I deeply urge any of you whom is currently facing issues of being a bully victim to talk to this to someone or ask for help in websites specializing in helping bullied kids or even call hotlines tailor made for this specific reason. It takes a very long time to heal from this wounds and as always prevention is better than cure.

    Thank you for reading my story.
