I went to school with the same people from grade three to eight. I was bullied most days for six years by kids who had horrendous family lives and personal issues. I didn't get a base education. My nerves were raw by age 13. I survived and have a great life. The one thing I want to share with those being bulled is that "these days" will end and when they do ... look out ... because it will be your day to shine! You will never regret fighting for your life! It "will" get better! - Anonymous Young Adult
