If I was to describe bullying, I’d describe it as someone or a group of people who purposefully/go out their way, to offend/make fun of/hurt physically (depending on the type of bullying).
Bullying really does kill, it nearly killed me.
I do feel people can bully if there’s intension to be sly, but let’s face it those people usually say sorry. Real bullies don’t say sorry, unless it is in a derogatory way.
I have been bullied in many different ways primary school (which I did n didn’t care about), domestic violence and emotional abuse as a child (far worse than anything.
I was sent to a child shrink at aged 6 as I pulled a knife out on myself, wouldn’t eat or speak and not just at home, this is the reason I started to be bullied in school as I literally would not speak, no emotions, out of fear, including crying.
High school (let’s face it school is a breeding ground for bullying) it wasn’t that serious or bad in high school really, all the other stuff I’d gone through had numbed me I guess.
It did get bad when one of my brothers died at 7 months old. some girl (no names for obvious reasons) chose to use the poem I had written to my baby brother in class to have a right good old laugh at people who have babies who die and how it’s their fault (he had died of pneumonia).
That was the worst I had to deal with in school by far, it hurt me so much.
I was bullied by my mother throughout my childhood and adulthood. I was controlled by her; I had gone to college while looking after her and her children.
I then had to pay her my EMA (money I got for going to college to help me support myself as a student) as rent, or I had to find somewhere else to live.
It’s awful how people want so much sometimes and feel it’s there right!
Many bully’s I have encountered have all felt they have the right, well no you do not have the right to make someone feel they shouldn’t even be breathing that’s the true effect of bullying,
I describe bullying as life destroying
I’ve been in seriously bad relationships; I have suffered from emotional abuse, and sexually abuse in many ways including being raped. I was never hit though.
It was always enough to scare me but I was never able to defend myself.
You are unable to find a way out as bully’s work in all manners (some even claim to love you) and now my mother and sister are currently bullying me which is hard to deal with as it’s due to me looking out for my sister when her girlfriend beat her up.
I’ve had a nervous breakdown and I’m an ex self-harmer.
I have walked in front of a car and I’ve fallen out of cars due to taking cocktails of alcohol and antidepressants.
All due to everything I’ve been through (there is much more but this is not the right place), and what other people have done to me physically and mentally.
I describe bullying as evil and every tiny word cuts like a knife and is far worse most of the time, with the exception of sexual abuse and rape.
I’ve not let people win, have almost in the past but I’m very lucky now as I have an amazing support network of friends I seriously would not be here if it wasn’t for the.
Bullying really does kill
Whether that’s literally or a metaphorical sense (kills feelings as you grow older and become numb to it all or become a bully in some peoples cases, either way the person the bully bullies changes and is “killed off”.
If you feel you must bully, look at the situation and ask why and what has brought you to that evil place.
How do I describe bullying, easy, bullying destroyed my life!
I was bullied throughout primary to college.
I have had to see Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) as well as adult councillors.
If people only thought about their actions and how it can have a long-term effect on someone’s life, I am almost certain they wouldn’t bully.
