I was bullied in Primary School, not to the extent of where I think most people are pushed. Yet, I was outcasted and humiliated by my, so called;"group". Which had long lasting effects, that only surfaced right before finishing matric. It hardened me towards people, and I could never make real, true, and genuine friendships, as I could never trust anyone.

When I was a lot younger, and still so desperate to fit in, I was awful towards others that did not deserve it. I was terribly mean towards those whom the popular crowd were against. As I got older, I found myself defending these people, even if it meant losing my"friends". I just got so sick of it. I was, and still am, wrenched with guilt, about who I was towards people whom I will never see again, and have probably forgotten about it by now.

You tend to just accept the fact that you are the weird kid, and work your life around it whilst at school. I knew that the others thought that I did not belong, and I thought so too. So, to avoid getting picked on, I spent all of my time in the library. It was my safe place, and I did not mind not socialising with my peers. The overall experience of school was not too bad. However, I had severe insecurities, that had a monumental affect in me in my twenties. I could barely look in the mirror, and I did not trust anyone. I still have these insecurities, that sneak up on me when I least expect it.

I teased a few girls at school. But, that can't be considered as bullying? I mean, come on? We all go through our fair share of being teased at school? It's not the end of the world?

I made fun of some of my classmates but I never resorted to hurting or playing mean pranks. We just joked around and called each other names but we were friends so I don't think it was bullying.

I was never bullied. Everyone knows I'm outspoken and ready to fight. Growing up in a not so nice neighborhood makes you tough. You're always out to show people that they can't do anything to hurt you.

I was bullied when I was in school. I was always the new girl. I had to change different schools because we had to move several times. Nobody knew much about me so everyone assumed I was weird since I kept to myself. I'd hear people calling me weird names and the popular girls would always find something to laugh about me. I learned to ignore people and focus on getting good grades so I could go and get any job.

I wasn't bullied but I knew of some people who went through a tough time. Kids can be mean with their words and actions. It took them a while to get over it. They had psychologist visits and counseling to overcome the emotional and mental trauma.

Bullying has become an issue that needs to be addressed. Many kids suffer from this and schools should put out awareness campaigns so kids know what are the consequences of their actions.

Bullying has become a serious issue now. There even is cyber bullying and it's just sad that people don't see that it affects a person seriously through psychological and emotional means.

I was teased in school but I wouldn't say it was bullying. They knew when to stop and they didn't find fun in hurting me. It wasn't like I was the only one teased. I just was a good sport.

I bullied one of my classmates when we were younger. I never thought she'd take it seriously. We were just kids and she told me about what she felt when we were older. I just felt really bad for putting her in that spot.

Bullies should be hanged upside by the school gate so they'd learn their lesson. They are not cool and making people feel like trash isn't saying much about them. If they need to bring people down to make themselves feel good then they are total losers.

I was bullied because I was small and skinny before. The bigger kids would push me around. I hated going to school because they might do more. It had a psychological effect on me.

Bullying has escalated over the years. I had bullies in school before but the kids now are way meaner and badder. They just don't know when to stop even if it ends up killing other people.

Bullying should never ever be acceptable. Especially in school because it is the place where people grow as persons and get guidance to face the world once they graduate. Bullying hampers that growth by inflicting psychological damage to a person! Injustice to the person being bullied. Even if they did something wrong, bullying them doesn't make things better. It only shows how weak you are for being unable to handle a situation the best way possible.

Bullying is not okay at all.

Bullying isn't even an issue only in schools anymore, but now with all this social media it's an issue online as well. It's becoming harder to control bullying with all the platforms available to say mean things.
