Well, I guess I should state that I'm not that thin of a person. That mostly contributed to being bullied. I was always called "Lard" or "Fat***" those words hurt. they truly did. I eventually resorted to self harm. And attempted suicide. It was rough. After that I was picked on for that. That made things worse. Eventually they ran out of ideas so they started targeting my family (My mother is deceased and my father is.... a "druggie"). They would call me the boy with no parents or just make fun of my father. It was pretty bad. The cuts went all the way up my arms and to hide them, I would a jacket in the middle of summer. People called me insane for doing this but if only they knew. Once I got into 8th grade things got better. people stopped targeting me and targeted others. So that's when I started helping people through their struggles and helped them to stand up to bullies. To me, I'm just a bully survivor. But to some, I'm a hero, a great friend, or a brother (not blood). Now, I'm in 9th grade. Things are much better now. :)

Normally, when I see someone I don't know being harassed, I stand up to the bully. I often get picked on for this but I don't care. If it is my close friend that I treat like a brother or sister, I often times will fight back whether it be physical or verbal, I am always there for them.
