Don't let them be mean to you. Be yourself, be unique and don't be willing to change just because of some stupid girls. Believe in yourself. I know you can do it.

This happens in middle school all the time. Check out the article about "Qween Tween Bees" at http://www.hellokiki.com

I had 0 friends in elementary school. Ppl called me talk alot, they never played with me, and I was bullied alot. Not as bad as you but bullied. I had a girl once tell me to my face that she wished I wasn't ever born just to make me cry. T-T bully's are mean.

Wow. This is a really scary story! I am so sorry you had to go through this, and hope everything's turning out better

I have the same problem, your situation sounds exactly like mine actually! I'm on weight watchers, I have the same issue with my makeup, and I feel for you. Ever need advice, don't be afraid to come to me

"I have friends, but not in my classes, which makes you a target. You’re the only one without a group, feeling like you’re interrupting a conversation, and getting sympathy from the teacher. Being so quiet, it is so hard for me to stand up and make friends but I know what it’s like to feel alone."
Wow, that's EXACTLY like me.

Any one who is bullied should deffinitly tell a trusted adult or trusted teacher or even your parent. DONT laugh with them because then they will think that its okay to bully when its NOT OK

when i was in the fifth grade i started "dating": (i know it doesn't really count when your that young) this boy and he would call me and we'd talk almost every night, well one night he calls me and says i " listen i really like you but i can't date you because all of my friends think you butt ugly, but we can secretley date " and the worst part of that story is that i agreed to it..

Oh my word that is so mean in kindergarten too!!!
by alice<332 on 10/18/2011 7:15:56 PM
yes i agree...bullying neeeeeds to stop. i go to private school and its still pretty bad. there is one girl in particular. all the other girls get along, but she makes you feel stupid and always is being annoying and correcting you. she is a smart alec. the sad thing is that we used to be best friends.
by ilygemia on 10/18/2011 5:41:01 PM
thats so sad : ( but its nice how many comments are on this saying to not give up and they have ~ the only thing is im wandering how many bullies read this and turned off their computers. sense there are no negative comments, they must feel a lil small right now.

Hey I know you have to put up with more than usual but just remember you are a better person and make sure you don't do that to others since you know how it hurts. I have a sibling who was beat up on the bus and trash canned in middle school by some nasty 8th graders. He was in 6th. I promised my self to never let that happen to any one and that if I ever saw that happen I would stop it.
Hope this helps. (:

If you've been bullied, maybe in middle school, and you overcame it (it's possible. By standing up to yourself, ignoring those insecure girls and finding good friends) you should be extremely grateful. Because from then on, you'll be prepared for a bunch of tough things that are waiting for you in high school. By being bullied and overcoming it, you may not know it, but you got stronger and more confident and that will def be an advantage later on. I've never really been bullied, so I know that if it happends in high school, I won't be completely prepared for it.
So there ya go, the bright side of getting bullied! I know it sounds silly Devin A.

That's HORRIBLE! I never knew it was possible to get bullied at the age of 4. I thought kids were supposed to be better than us teens, because they're not superficial and all they want to do is play with others, but I guess I am wrong. I know EXACTLY how this girl's feeling. I may not be a victim of bullying, but I am in a class all by myself. I try hard to reach out to others but it's tough. But I am not the kind to compain, I just think positively and try to make some friends. When I was young, I may have been a target of bullying here and there, but it wasn't really serious and now I don't experience bullying at all, so I am lucky, I guess. But even if I was bullied, I'd face it head-on and stand up for myself. I don't know how girls can go months or years with being bullied and put up with it. I don't know, I am just speaking through the point of view of someone who hasn't been bullied. Devin A.

im bullied a lot 2 so im right there with ya though I get bullied by a girl who's uglier than me so it's kinda weird O.o
by tabbycat627 on 10/17/2011 1:33:49 AM
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!(:
by purpleorchid on 10/17/2011 12:41:06 AM
@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!!!
by Pookiebear911 on 10/16/2011 5:42:02 PM
Be strong! I know how it feels but just remember that you are indeed so much better than them!
by fallsb-ball on 10/16/2011 12:17:27 PM
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.
by beachgirl324 on 10/16/2011 10:53:57 AM
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
by warriorgirl100 on 10/16/2011 1:04:06 AM
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.
by cheekymonkey1 on 10/16/2011 12:42:41 AM
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. ^_^
