Bullying.

A+ A-

Anyone's been bullied? physically, mentally? words? all the judging about everything you do? well, I've been through it, for hm.. about, 9 years? lol, and yet it goes on.

I stand for peace, and I'm never a pick a fight kinda guy, tryna make things better the whole time and being positive, but once I'm down.. im literally just so.. down.

Judging can be such a great bullying, like 'enta labes keda leh?' 'whats with your hair?' 'whats with your laugh?' 'whats with your walk?' 'whats with your taste in music?' and people don't get it.. it all adds up, till it feels like those words are sucking the life out of you, I just thought I'd share, maybe it'd connect me to few people here (I love meeting new people lol.) - and they could talk it out, I'm a listener.

also, do you think it makes anything to do with your sexuality? that all they say, maybe moves you deep inside, maybe what they say.. you believe, and you start acting on it, and it changes things? .

    Sorry you had to go through that all these years! It's tough and frustrating having people judge you when you're just trying to be yourself. You're right when you said that people don't get it. They don't because judgmental people don't realize that these things are subjective anyway. It sounds like you may be dealing with bigots/morons.

    I think the worst kind of bullying I experienced was when this "friend" of mine started a rumor about me in middle school about me being a lesbian. Well, she wasn't wrong but I was denying that of course. So this other guy in our class heard this rumor. I forgot my english book in class one day and by the time I got it back, this guy had the worst kind of homophobic remarks written in there. Things like: "you're going to die of AIDS" and etc.

    I know it's easy to say ignore what other people say about you but with practice and by reassuring yourself, you'll gain enough confidence to not have those idiots bring you down and possibly stand up for yourself. I ignored all kinds of bullying, I was aware of them but decided not to give a shit.

      You can't ignore the bullying all the time, I have my brother now by my side, he seriously beats the hell out of every1 who calls me anything, he knows about me, I might be 'physically weak' but its just because my mentality doesn't wana hurt anyone, I don't wanna get people in trouble, I can easily take a knife and stab someone, it's not hard to be physically strong, but it is to be mentally strong, it all sucks how much words can do, I'm trying to ignore it by actually being MORE like myself, starting with painting my room, anything that makes me feel like.. I'm okay, I'm myself, I'm just way better than this society, may sound egotistic but well.. I need to make myself confident and okay with who and what I am

      thank you so much for your feed back, and I'm SO sorry you had to go through that, people could be such jerks.

      What you're doing actually sounds very healthy, I'm glad you're doing that. Keeps a person sane and happy. :)

  • i once had the same situation, but let me tell you, it gets better, it really does, primary and high school might be dull times, just learn to ignore and forget, forgetting is a great bless, things will be much better in college, you will find someone to love, and no one will judge you, you will find your own group, you will belong.

    I don't belong anywhere, not even while I walk down the street FYI, people's eyes literally penetrate me, scanning every single thing about me, and I can actually see them pointing, the looks.. the everything, this shit doesn't get better till I'm home, with myself.. online, reading stuff that makes me feel like myself, but I gave up on most Egyptians and the way they think tbh, it's such a shame having to feel like you can't wait to get the hell outta here just to feel okay lol.

    maybe someday I'll belong ^-^

      I know exactly how you feel. I like to pretend that they are staring at me and judging me because they feel too bad that they can't be me. A little white lie I tell myself to help me overcome the pain it used to make me feel, but I don't care as much anymore, I am much more confident.

      That's a good solution, most people stare and point, or even talk because of jealousy really, they just try to point out the weak in you to break you down, great knowing u're better now.
