I was bullied as a child...

by Kristine

As a child in elementary, I was not confident and was bullied several times by different people, the first time was a group of three girls. They would beat me up and harass me at lunch time till my older sister found out. My older sister was very confident and very popular and she had a few words to say to these girls. By the end of the day, one of the girls, the main one, was crying to me over the phone apologizing and the other two girls apologized to me when I was at school the following day, and I was finally freed of being abused by those girls. I endured those girls for more than a month of everyday harassment. In another school, I was bullied again because I was prettier than this one girl, and the boy she liked actually liked me. This issue was dealt with through the principal, because the girl was paying larger older people to fight me. When I was in High School, I finally found my voice and became a very confident person and I never had the issue again. But I do agree with Judge Judy!
