    New post here about bullying

    You don't have to have been bullied cuz you were gay. If not that, they would find other things to pick on you for

    I have been bullied all my life, most of my family have been bullied too.

    I just wanted to know so many times, "why me"

    It's like that simpsons episode, certain people just get targeted, with no outside factors, maybe it is some kind of hidden pheromones that scientists have yet been able to detect.

    One bully told me after a particulary cruel act "I did it because I can"

    Personally I would be more interested in knowing not the stories of other bullyings, but of advice and secrets on how to beat the fuckers and how to get them to stop them from bullying you and/or others.

    A bunch of fraternity guys playing who-knows-what in the front lawn made fun of me for wearing white after Labor Day.
    They were right, of course, but that didn't lessen the sting of shame.

    My suggestion is for all kids to take self defense classes while young, which will increase confidence by the way you carry yourself. Projecting confidence is one of the best ways to ward off bullying.
    Too bad my parents never figured this out when my brother and I were kids. It could have saved both of us a lifetime of grief. But I can't put too much blame on my parents. The last time I lost enough weight to do anything physical, I chose to take dance lessons instead. Insert gay jokes here. I'm trying to get back into shape again, and I plan to look into Krav Maga lessons. It'll be a life changer for me.

    I learned to handle bullies and put a complete stop to their threats and violence when I was only 9 years old. I was a skinny little kid, raised by grandparents. A sadistic bully & his two goons began accosting me on my way to school, demanding my lunch money. Two of them would hold me down, while the main bully cleaned out my pockets. Then, they'd take my books and pens & toss them around the street. I'd pick my stuff up and head to school - with no lunch money. They'd warned me if I told a teacher, I'd be killed (those were their exact threats).

    This went on for 3 weeks. All the time I tried going a different way to school, or getting rides to school, or reasoning with the bully. Nothing worked. He knew my grandparents had money and he wanted it. I ran low on money and refused to pay one day. I got the holy shit kicked out of me, and literally limped home. My grandfather saw me coming in - and helped wash the blood off of me. Nothing broken, just bruises and cuts.

    My grandfather was upset and wanted to know how this happened so I had to tell him what was happening, and explain why I'd been afraid to tell anyone. It was now Easter break and a trainer was hired & we worked every day for a week. A punching bag was hung in our garage. I was trained to defend myself - to throw and block a punch. I developed a good left hook. I was told exactly what to do for my first day back at school. I was so sure it wouldn't work, but had no better ideas for how to put a stop to the bully's b.s. So - I walked to school, and out from behind his hiding place came the bully & his two idiots. Just as I was told, I threw my books down, and hit the main bully right between the eyes as hard as I could. He went down. I couldn't believe it! I'd bloodied him. I'll never forget the look on his face. He suddenly had a whole new respect for me (mixed with hatred, I guess!) He never bothered me again. What I learned is, we each have to stand up for ourselves and sometimes go out on a limb - take a huge risk and learn to defend ourselves. If we don't respect ourselves, we can't expect anyone else to do so. I wish I could help every little kid turn his situation around. The feeling of relief when you put a stop to being bullied is like nothing else!

    lol i have two distinctive memories. in 3rd grade. I reluctantly attended my friend's friend bday party and while I was hanging out on the terrace hallway, one of the kids just picked a fight with me for no reason and I got two black eyes in the process.

    9th grade I got jumped by 9 kids and had to get stitches on my upper lip. After that experience I realized I had high threshold for pain and wasn't afraid of getting hit.

    The next year I came to the rescue of one of my friends getting picked on and we took on 7 guys and won hahas

    I practiced martial arts and worked out and for the most part I try to intervene when I see someone getting bullied. Most times i'm able to defuse the situation before getting out of hand.

    I think your therapist was really trying to convince you to not be "stuck in the past" to the extent where you cant enjoy your present and of course your future

    that's not the way he came off. i felt like he was being really insensitive where he wouldn't be able to help me or connect the dots. my issue was simply how to basically snap out of the negative effects that came from all those experiences. some of those negative effects actually manifested themselves into mental issues such as OCD and anxiety problems. like i wanted to STOP being paranoid, stop being so distrusting of people, how not to be anxious around others, how to not let my anxiety get the best me, how to stop being angry, holding grudges, to be able to do simple things without being anxious, anxiety ridden or have my OCD act up and he wasn't able to figure that out. he wasn't a good therapist. he thought that i was basically crying over the past and etc when i was trying to explain to him why i became the person that i was at that moment looking for help. however with the insurance i had @ the time, he wouldn't have been able to help me anyway and i'm good that he didn't otherwise i would be still be avoiding some of the mental issues i had and get myself further into problems.

    but i'm not sweating that though. i was able to find another doctor that was able to help me or put me on to where i needed to be. i wish i would have met the doctor that i WAS dealing with for the past 6 months sooner. i would say that i'm in a much better place than how i was like say a year ago.



    that's good that you got some help. It'll also help to watch or experience the positive side of humanity.

    yeah, even though the depression hasn't gone away and the anxiety acts up from time to time, i have some control over my life and myself again. kinda sad that things got to that point though where it could have been avoided. the whole nature and nuture theory makes perfect sense though. if you're predisposed to having mental issues and ailments, if you're put in a certain environment then they will or will not come out. some people go nuts if you put them in the wrong environment and some don't. i unfortunately was one of those that went nuts.


    and now you have the opportunity to take life in a better direction. One of my favorite and simple campaigns that helped me out is the "free hugs " campaign. Check it out on youtube if you have a moment.



    I think you'll be fine. my only advice to you is to avoid unnecessary drama. ESPECIALLY ONLINE. I understand people get "brave" behind a keyboard but the moment you lose your cool, you lose because that person knows they can get under your skin, and they'll do it whenever they need a form of entertainment. Simply ignoring that person deprives them of that pleasure and as a result they'll leave you alone, and you'll be at ease.

    It's very simple bro icon_wink.gif

    I only remember one specific bully who annoyed the hell out of me in high school when I was like 13/14. It wasn't anything physical, but he'd say stuff and at that age (I admit this now) I was extremely naive of a lot of things. I didn't realize that the guy was 1) a guy I could have easily beat up, and 2) wasn't really threatening me. But at that age, I didn't get all of that but one day I just went up to him and grabbed him and told him to stop it. He didn't bother me since then and actually years later when he came back to the school to get some documents and I was in the office, we actually kind of talked.

    Another incident was with a guy that I label as just a complete jackass. It was nothing physical but he used to just insult me for no reason at all. He'd call me fag, piece of shit etc. I never took that guy on because I knew that he was the piece of shit. When we were in our first year of high school, he broke his foot or something. He had to wait several hours after school for his parents to come for him, I had my mom offer him a drop home. Next day he insults the crap out of me, and it goes on sporadically throughout school.

    I seem to have, both past and present, been targeted more socially than physically. No one up until this point has dared to start a physical confrontation with me. Social alienation and 'mind games' seem to be people's preferred methodology of attempting to "bully" me.

    I grew up in a very undiversed town. I was one of the very few Latinos from my graduating class I was always picked on because I wasn't white and people would call me every derogatory term that had anything to do with Latinos.

    I got bullied a lot when I was a kid. It all started at Primary School. I was the only Indian kid in my year. There was this one kid who hated my guts so much just because I'm Indian. Everyday he would call me a "Paki"(racist slur) and get everyone to hate me and not let me play with them. During break time and lunch time at school I could never play with the other kids because of that cunt. He would say to me "you're a paki, you're ugly and you should kill yourself". Just looking at his face I knew he really wanted me dead.
    One time during a lunch break I went into the school cafeteria and there were no seats available apart from one. That seat was next to the kid who hated me so much and his friends were sitting and eating their lunch on the same table. The dinner lady told me to sit with them lot but I didn't want to but had to otherwise I would get in trouble. As soon I sat on the chair with the idiots, they all looked at me and then looked at each other and packed their lunch away and just left the table. You could imagine how terrible that made me feel. I just really wanted to have friends but didn't get any.
    Every break time at school I would stand in a corner at the playground by myself. That's how I started to become a loner and would later affect me in many ways.
    Secondary school was worse. I didn't get much racism there but a lot of people hated me and were very violent to me. I started to feel suicidal. Nearly everyday at school I would not eat lunch because I didn't want to go to the school cafeteria because I didn't want to get bullied.
    I used to eat lunch sometimes. But I used to always stand by the lockers at lunch time and eat my lunch there. But other students who hated me used to come up to me and attack me. So I started to feel uncomfortable and I just couldn't eat anymore at school. My mum would always make sandwiches for me and everyday when I walk home from school I used to throw my sandwiches in the bushes so my parents wouldn't know that I don't really eat my lunch anymore.
    I used to also get bullied a lot during P.E time because I had hairy legs. They all used to say things like "you're a hairy bastard, you're a fucking hairy werewolf, you should shave your legs". Because of that I quit doing P.E because I just couldn't take it anymore. I didn't like it when everybody used to stare at my legs and gossip to one another about me.
    There are a lot more incidents but I don't want to talk about them right now because it's all bringing back painful memories.
    All I can say is I got off easy because there were a couple of other kids who got bullied a lot more than what I did.

    I was bullied for being fat, having freckles, being short, having glasses. I pretty much avoided people until my junior year of High School. Never came out. My friends were pretty surprised. But needless to say, I didn't have to be out or gay to be bullied. Everyone was pretty supportive about the gay thing. However, my self-esteem never quite recovered from all of the childhood teasing.

    I fought back with words and made a reputation for myself. And yah, it basically stopped.

    But like I said, cold shoulders and being ignored can hurt just as bad as being verbally and/or physically abused.
