Words Hurt. Stop Bullying.


MY story

Growing up was honestly hell for me.My mom was constantly ill and I was always there to take care of her. Even at four years old, I was sleeping on her floor, making sure she took all of her medications. Although I'm only 13 years old now, and in 8th grade, I can say I've had a hard life.When I was year old, my biological father sexually and physically abused my mom and I. My mom finally got enough courage to leave him, and we left for good. Bullying was an everyday thing that happened to me. In first grade, I can remember being in gym class, and having the boys call me fat. Or just walking in the halls being pushed and called names. As I got older, more into 4th and 5th grade, things got really bad. I hit puberty earlier than everyone else. But the names still went on. I recall coming home one day in sixth grade and I told my mom I wanted to kill myself. In seventh grade, I honestly thought I was trash. Everyone hated me. I go to a school with just 7th and 8th graders, but it was horrible. Rumors spread so fast, and about me, they were disgusting.I am Bisexual, which everyone in the school of Dakota Meadows, well I think everyone, thinks its a sin, or nasty.I got on the bus one day and sat in front of this girl and she said "I heard your a lesbian. Stop talking to me. Your probably dreaming having sex with me and all the girls at school.. Probably the teachers too". People call me gay, fag, queer, homo etc. because I'm bi. In May of 2012, I saw my biological father at the clinic. From there on until December 2012, I was getting into trouble and doing stupid stuff. At the end of May, I got caught with Marijuana at school. Then after that, I started getting into fights, having charges of Disorderly Conduct, and Fifth Degree assault. Bullying just got worse for me then. I was known as a druggie, a whore, nothing, the bad kid. So many people lost respect for me and trust for me. After going to Juvenile Detention, I realized I need to change what I was doing, and go back to the kid I was before. And that's exactly what I did, and exactly what I'm doing. People still bully me, but I don't let it get to me. I'm currently on probation, and doing everything I need to. I've got straight A's, and laugh when I hear the rumors. They're not true, and they weren't ever. I AM a survivor of physical emotional, and verbal bullying.


Everyday thousands of people are being bullied on looks, sexual orientation, what they wear, or anything else. People need to stop bullying others. In the United States, we don't have a single school that does not have bullying in it.

Tina Meir, then found out that the girl down the street, a former friend of Megan's was using an attractive fake picture to talk to boys. Immediately , Tina ended her daughters MySpace account. When Megan turned 14, she asked her mother for another chance on MySpace. Her mom agreed, but only her and her husband had the password. One day Megan came home from school and asked her mom to log in to MySpace to see if "Josh" had responded. Josh had messaged her. But was sending mean, harassing messages. "Josh" even shared some of Megan's messages with others. Megan was now in tears, talking with her mother over the phone, telling her all the rude things that were being said. Her mom insisted on her singing off, but she didn't. Her mom came home, and saw Megan back firing, and putting comments out there with vulgar language.
