BULLYING, by 6ninjafox9

~Bullying, by 6ninjafox9
Bullying statistics show that 77% of students are bullied mentally, verbally, & physically, more so common in middle and high school...

I get this incredibly sick feeling in my stomach at the thought of bullying, no I have never been bullied, I may be quiet but I'm no pushover...

However, I've seen kids getting bullied since I was in pre-school, and I wish I had done something back then, y'know?

They say watching someone get bullied is the same as bullying the person, doing nothing is wrong, and I realize that now...

I must also confess that I was pretty harsh to a girl back in 5th grade, I really feel horrible about it now and I wish I hadn't done it, there's absolutely no excuse for my behavior back then, my friend had done it so I had joined in, thinking that it wouldn't hurt...

God was I stupid, I've always been the girl who shakes her head and rolls her eyes when seeing bullying but unfortunately that one time I had joined in, and I regret it, remembering that girls face, how'd she'd cried on her way home [we walked in the same direction], it makes my stomach drop...

What's worse, me and my friend kept at it for a few days before we got bored of it...

I'm still friends with her, and whenever that incident has been mentioned I tell her I feel horrible, but she says it was no big deal and that the girl probably forgot all about it but I don't know...

I was really shallow and just because my best friend was doing it, didn't mean I should've too....

Thankfully, there's not really any bullying at my current school, which is fine by me, because I will NEVER do it again, no matter what my friends say...

What inspired this? My big sister' girlfriend's little sister is getting home-schooled because of bullying at her previous school, she's around fourteen, and this just got me thinking about bullying...
