Bullies can hurt in so many ways and this has been highlighted recently in the form a reality TV show on social media fields, I have watched the episode in question and yes it is a form of bullying but like all tv shows things are edited and made up for our entertainment so does that mean I cordon the act of bullying and the answer to that is simply NO

I experience bullying while in high school mine fell under torment in the form of name calling and at the time of the name calling I had not a clue what it meant or understood. I was 11 when it started and kind of ended when I left school at 16, luckily I had a few close friends who were around me for support and being at my side when I needed them and to this day they are and its over 30 years ago now.
Looking back on that time and how it made me feel the simple answer is horrible these people of my own age and above called me names for fun and kicks and I avoided being on my own at times too and go different ways around the school my close friends were aware of this and supported me and made school bearable.

These kids of my own age were bullies and thought they were big but the funny (usually what was deemed the cool kids or so they felt) thing is now later on as they have grown up the words they called me is how they are and that makes them no different to me and when I see them they don’t speak or acknowledge the fact I’m there but they look sheepish so question to them and all other bullies – was it worth it?

I realised early on that the bullying was not my fault it was due to the fact the bully was jealous or concealing something of there own which after seeing my bullies I know what it was.
My life has not been determined by this or I haven’t been feeling like a victim, I accepted who I was, and I am comfortable in my own skin and I did this a long time ago.
If you are being bullied do not sit in silence tell someone, if its at school tell a teacher like I did. If its at work tell your boss or their boss. Talk to a friend or family member about it and remember that its not your fault and you are not to blame.
