I think everyone is bullied in school. It's just part of growing up. Kids can be mean, sadly. I was bullied, I was an ugly little kid.
There are still a couple of people, I think of from school and hope they are fat, lonely and ugly now, because they were so mean in school.

Touche! There was this one girl that bullied me that is married now to this super hot guy, who was always very, very nice. I'm like "How did that happen?!" She must've changed.

I was bullied a lot. It sucked. I was always the new kid and an easy target. Thank goodness that's over now! Part of the reason I think of home schooling Levi is because of how badly I was bullied. I probably won't though. I know everyone is different and I just got mixed into some unfortunate situations.

Unfortunately, I was a bully. Looking back, it was so stupid and it was such a huge low self-esteem thing. I was so afraid of people seeing my weaknesses about my home life (father being abusive alcoholic, etc.) that I would make like I was soooo tough and could handle anything and was a stupid bully. I wish I could go back and change things. Fortunately, thanks to FB, I have become friendly with some of the people that I was not so nice to. There is NO EXCUSE to bully anyone, but I really think, speaking from my own experience, it's mostly a low self-esteem thing.

Another weird thing though - I, for some reason that I do not have a reason for, would almost always stick up for the underdog in most situations - but then I would continuously bully the one who was picking on the underdog....

I agree with Paula.

I wasn't bullied as much as other kids but kids can be mean to each other, especially if you are different.

In elementary school I was bullied, for being one of the very few white kids, and for not having the right shoes and clothes.

In middle school I was the bully.

In high school, only two guys tried to push me around and start rumors, but one death threat to one of them and one science book to the back of the head to the other stopped both of them... Sorry, but if your 6'6" 300 lbs and picking on some girl, relentlessly, taking a science book in the back of the head and busting your *** falling over a desk, is fair trade.

I was bullied in primary school. I also have a mother who believes that bullying is good for kids and helps to build character and so I was also bullied at home. Yeah, no it doesn't.
