On Diigo i just viewed some of the videos and pictures surrounding bullying incidents that occur in elementary, middle, and high schools. Its sickening how kids treat one another. It almost seems like their goal is to break down someone else’s self-esteem to cover their own insecurities. Its unbelievable some of the horror stories some students live to tell, while others have taken their own lives because of the pressure.
In middle school i was one of those bullied. Looking at the situation from a grown perspective, i’ve come to the conclusion that the reasoning behind me being bullied was jealousy. The few girls who bullied me were ugly on the inside and out. They all wore weave and when they exposed their real hair i didn’t reach past their ears…aka they were just some bald-headed birds. Me on the other hand, had long pretty golden brown hair with golden green eyes to match. I think they secretly envied my appearance and wished they looked like me.
Now that sounds extremely conceited, but i am far from that. In middle school who was really worried about their appearance and how they looked? I was more focused on school. I was the quiet girl who never said much, i just smiled all the time. Now that we’re reminiscing, i didn’t even have friends. I had my brother and my cousin who were just a year older than me.
My situation of being bullied never was brutal where it involved any physical altercations. It just entailed verbal abuse from some bald-headed birds chirping. Its sad that now-a-days kids have become meaner and now result to violence, possibly as a result of playing too many video games.
