girl you seem like such an amazing person! i appreciate how you made sure the cycle ended with you; that instead of being hurtful to others you instead defend those who get picked on! ah-maz-ing!(:

@divachick422- I know the mods said it, but i'll say it again. don't give into it! i was/am bullied. I used to give into it and i talked to my mom. she told me to ignore or tell him to be quiet. i did and even though he tried to stay tough and say thing to mock me, he stopped. dont just talk to a techer, those things deserve more attention. REMEMBER- youre probably a way awesomer person to be around.

Hi, so I'm going to high school next year and I really want to go to the big public high school, East. I want to be a cheerleader there, but there are two problems....
1.) I have absolutely no dance/cheerleading experience!! Well a little ballet, but that won't help much!! I can't even do a cartwheel :/ The cheer team isn't very good, and my mom might be the coach next year, so that would help, but if not, do u think I have any chance of making it?? I'm really enthusiastic haha and loud! So I guess thats cheerlead-y. But idk! And if you don't think I have a chance, how can I improve myself in terms of flexibility and stunts??
2.) They're colors are red and white -- my two worst. What are some ways I can look better in the uniform??
THANKS SO MUCH!! <3

Those girls are just jealous of you and have no right to do that. Make sure you stand up for yourself and don't take what they throw at you. I know what it feels like to give it your all and then still be told that your not good enough...by my best friend!!!!!!!!!! In real life if your mean to anyone that's not going to get you anywhere. Keep on being yourself and you'll go far!!!

Be strong! I know how it feels but just remember that you are indeed so much better than them!

That's really horrible. The fact that you remember it after 10 years reminds me of this excersise we did in an anti-bullying program we had at my old school. The teacher told us to close our eyes and remember a time you were bullied when you were younger. people remembered stories from years ago about being bullied extremely vividly. then she asked us to remember what we had for dinner a week ago. No one could remember. It really makes you realize how much of an effect bullying has on people's lives. stay strong, girl.

That is so horrible! But I think the best thing to do is just laugh at them when they bully you. If they have to be a jerk to make you feel bad then they are ridiculous and that is not your problem. It sounds like your school sucks and I'm really sorry. It gets better as you get older. Bullying virtually doesn't exist at my school. I wish it could be like that everywhere

Hey girl.I was bullied all through elementary school.Just think, they are trying to break who you are.If you give them the chance they will.They will try and break you like you are glass.But always remember, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

that's aweful! I can't belelieve they said that to you! I mean, I guess I can believe it...because there are some super mean people out there. But nobody should ever be mean like that! If they are mean, it's probably becaus they don't feel good about themselves and think it is better to take their own embarresment out on you. If I was in your class when that happened, I would have slapped some of those boys and told them to shirt their faces and leave you alone. Stay strong girl! You will be at the top one day while their at the very very bottom. ^_^
