    My wife and I are creating a foundation that will help people of all ages that are or were bullied. It is a big deal in the world right now and we want to help those who are victims of it. The reason I brought it to the forums, I have seen a lot of people talk about how they are bullied and have friends that are bullied. I have even seen some bullies in chat. Bullying is not just hitting somebody, its being mean to those less fortunate. So I want to take a poll of how many people were, are, or is the bully. So please like this and share it around and remember to be nice to those around you! :D

    I guess I was one of the lucky ones and got through school relatively unscathed. Not so much with the rest of my life though but nothing to do with bullies.

    Tough life people have out there. I was bullied, went through a lot of shit in a year. Changed for the better of course but it was tough to wake up everyday dreading the fact I'd have to go to school, didn't do well mentally or physical. Like every victim spilled into the spiraling vortex of depression. I wont go into to much detail, sort a private but I can say for the people being bullied.

    You will always get the last laugh.

    Being bullied is common, it's part of life. Yes it's mean and no one likes it, I've been there before so tips:

    • Just ignore them, they'll get bored.
    • If they hit you, walk away. You have every right to remain calm and let someone with authorities know. ( Don't be afraid )
    • Caught a glimpse of them? Give a small smile and walk away.
    I'm not sure how bullying is at other countries, mine is mostly cyber-bullying or mentally bullying people with "whispers" that you aren't suppose to hear. And also laughter magically happens Everyday when you walk past the same group of people. Like how they would "secretly" point at you and start laughing then you look at them and they'll go "What are you staring at?"

    Cyber-bullying tips
    1. Don't let it affect you, they're just words.
    2. Convert the pain into walls of steel and become stronger.
    3. Block their ass off your profile.
    Like I said, words can't hurt you. You use them to make you a better person. It only affects you if you let it. No one has the right to say how much you are worth, you are worthy of so much you just don't know it yourself. You can't let them have their ways, love yourself. Don't belittle yourself because there's only one of you, everyone's special at something. You don't have to speak up as long as you know it yourself. Then again I MAY NOT be entirely right.

    Don't let people define who you are.

    I, myself have been a victim of bullying on the server. Three 9-yr olds kept picking on me about sex because they've played GTA V, which REALLY pissed me off because they are WAY too young to be knowing about that stuff. I don't know what staff have done to them, but it really hurt me because they were asking if I had had sex yet. (Not telling you, its none of your buisness)

    Rinne this is beautiful, this really hits home for me. Close to tears but I had to stop myself because my family is near.

    Don't listen to those kids, who cares if you did(n't) have sex. Sex isn't something for fun, is something to create something even better ;) besides kids these days are corrupted to the fact where they have no common sense in what they say to affect people, they think "it wont affect me" or "its just a joke." But little do they know, those saying they say to others can break someone, it can cause death, it can cause horror.
    Those little words they say can do the unspeakable, just no one understands. Only the ones who have witnessed it up close and personal can understand.

    The ones who understand are the wisest people there are.

    They understand pain, and they accepted it.

    Words can either hurt or help. Children are corrupt because their parents won't raise them right, so they are knowing WHAT to do during sex, and watching pornography shamelessly. Sometimes, they know what pain is or their just being a comeplete asshole. I have autism. One person called me "retarded" because of that. I started typing in caps using very harsh curse words.
    Wasn't muted for it.

    Heck I was bullied for stupid stuff. When I was younger it was the size of my feet, towering over the rest of my class I wasn't as they called "normal". Next was my height and hair. Let's not forget my accent and a speech problem I have a bit of.
    But that was back when I thought fitting in was "cool". It's not. I gotta say being myself is a lot cooler than trying to fit into a community where they want to set the standards.

    But heck I'm now 24 years old, living on my own, with a job, and a loving boyfriend. If anything the kids back then build me up to make me a strong adult to overcome any challenges that arises. Use the bullies as a stepping stone in your life because they want to bring you down because they're jealous that you're better/bigger than them.

    I am glad everything has worked out for you, your right in the sense people actions can make you stronger. :D It's truly amazing to see people like you who have survived the pain of insults, and I bet its more amazing to feel accomplishment of surviving pain.

    I rather be unique then a clone of everyone else.

    There's nothing wrong with loving the same gender.

    Nope, I mean boyfriend. Me and him has been together for almost 6 months now.

    Indeed. I was always raised to look at the bright side of things. One of the bullies I had back then talked to me on facebook a few months back and made amends with him. He was a midget so he figured that since I'm towering over him, about 2-3 feet, that I was a threat and mocked me about it. He came to realize that it was stupid of him to do so.
