Have you ever been bullied in school? If so, what did you do to get by? Do you still have a grudge on that person until now?

Hi the answer to this question in some form or another every one gets bullied whether its direct or indirect. I myself was bullied for 12 yrs during my time at school. Do i have a grudge? No reason being is because it makes me a stronger person then i was before. The bulliers also get what comes to them whether at work, marriage etc they wont be forgotten they will have problems. I personally think bullying is a personality problem. They think they fit in but in reality there other peers will forget they even exist at reunions or meet them in the street. People just got to look the other way and walk that is what i do now. I have seen the people that bullied me and i say hi and bye you dont have to be rude but the sayiing is keep your friends close but eniemies closer and the second one is you may forgive but you dont forget.

I have been bullied in school as I was in a all boys boarding school.I was new so the bully was trying to test me.For the first 3 days he always tootk my money and food but on the fourth I got tired of it so I stood up to him and he chickened out.In the end he became my best friend and I have never held a grudge on him.

I was thin and small when I was a child, and some strong and big ones gave me some wound and took some money back often. But now, I almost forget that. hehe. It must not be a good thing sometime, right?

Yes,i was bulled in school. It got to the point that it became violent. It was me against about ten older children. and believe me or not i once had to walk home due to the them not letting me on the bus and even their parents were standing in the street with weapons waiting to assalt me.I got by, fighting back which i know now is not the best alternative.I still hold a grudge even though i keep telling myself it was years ago and we were all kids. it ruined my desire for a better education which in turn affects me today.

I was never personally bullied, but I knew several childhood friends who endured terrible bullying in middle school. Kids can be very cruel. I think the key is for teachers and administrators to really enforce anti-bullying policies. Victims need to be believed and supported. Perpetrators need to be held accountable for their actions. Bullying can impact self-esteem for a lifetime.

I'd have to say yes. It's not a really good feeling back then when I had to come to school and face these bullies. I though, it's fine if it's one or two but an entire group is a disaster. It's been more than 16 years through. I don't have a grudge anymore. It didn't last long anyway. I got over it in high school. I actually made friends with some of them. It would be really depressing to know if they still act the same way they do. They're not grade schoolers anymore. :D
