Is there any particular hurtful moments you had in school that you'll always remember?

K101 K101
During a conversation today someone was talking about how high school can be brutal and we all know kids can be so cruel. Some people always remember particular hurtful incidents from their past. When someone brought that up earlier, I thought back and decided it was pretty true. Some of the most hurtful things even if it's just an awful nickname, most people never forget those things. The person I was talking with said she was bullied extremely bad and told of some horrible things that were done to her. She said now that it's been years since she'd been in high school, those who bullied her for years have tried to become friends. "Most of them act as if they never remember doing a thing," she said.

It was sad to hear that, but it made me think of the things I'd remembered. I do remember in great detail some of the super hurtful experiences from high school.

Do you? Is there anything in particular that still hurts you when you remember it? Do you think you could become friend with someone who'd bullied you in school and acted as if they never did? If you decide to share, thank you

I was pretty good at socializing and can handle situations well, there weren't any chance for someone to bully me.

There are some things that happened to me and though some may think it's wrong, I won't forgive those people and want nothing to do with them. I don't care if we were just teenagers, kids KNOW when they're being mean and some shit just isn't okay no matter what. Girls were bitches in high school and I was only good friends with a few. I had more guy friends, less drama.

That's great to hear Rossie.


Zombirella: I totally understand where you're coming from. A lot of adults blow things off as "kids will be kids" I hate that. Kids should be taught to be kind. I undderstand kids will say things to one another, but there's a limit. I never was the type of person who could really be hurtful. Of course people get angry and voicing your upsets is Ok, but there's a difference in telling someone they pissed you off and just bullying people. It's awful and I hate that anybody has to endure it.

You're completely right. Kids DO know when they're being mean. They learn that at an early age. Kids as young as 4 (AT LEAST!) know better and know what words are hurtful. I say that because I have a neice who's recently started calling people fat and the other day she did it and I asked her if she talks to her friends that way. She said "Yes!" while crying. Lol. I gave her a pretty good lecture because there's no excuse for that shit. It should never be tolerated. I told her that if someone called me fat, I'd cry and that she probably made a lot of people cry by saying it. When I told her that her brother told her she had a moustahce and she flipped! Lol. She learned her lesson real quick though.

I understand though. I don't want our kids, or my neices/nephews to get in the habit of thinking it's OK to be mean. I know how it feels and I don't want others to have to feel bad about themselves.

Thank you guys so much for sharing!

I wasn't bullied in high school, but I hated it just the same.

I was stabbed in the back with a pencil once. And punched in the back by the same person. And called so many names that eventually the teachers told me to stop coming to them. There was a girl who once threw rocks at me with her friends, culminating in her coming up to me and snapping my bra. There was another girl who broke a pen on me. I've had gum spit into my hair. One time on the school bus, just as I was leaving, some boy said "I'm going to rape you!" For my last few years of school, I had to switch buses. Much was made of my weight when I was in school. The only time the other kids thought I was cool in gym was when I was hit with something and didn't cry--which happened quite a bit thanks to folks aiming for me.

I remember quite a lot, actually. But most of my grade were either indifferent to me or friendly acquaintances. So, it wasn't like my school years were unrelenting hell or anything. And I had some friends, so I was pretty lucky, all things considered. It's just not easy to forget the actions of a particularly nasty few.

I was picked on a lot growing up. I remember that my entire freshman year, I was known as "That one girl". I think one of the worst times was when I got on the bus, and decided to straighten my hair that day. So I was sitting there and the guys behind me were talking about who I was and which one of them should talk to me, so one of them pokes my back, and I turned around and they're both like "OH, never mind, it's just that one girl. Doesn't matter"

HS is brutal for everyone. I mostly let the bad stuff go.

I was bullied in school but my mom never did anything about it. I still remember the events, but I don't remember the feelings I had during those events---whether I was scared, angry, mortified or traumatized...it just doesn't register anymore.

I was bullied a lot in Junior high. It was a very miserable time for me. Then I moved to a new state and High school was a lot better with a lot of new friends and no one bullied me.

I was bullied for much of my life and I'm not even sure why. All I know is I'm surprised I made it to where I am now because all the time they were bullying me at school, I was being "bullied" at home. My parents were mentally, emotionally, and sometimes physically abusive to mostly me but also my sisters. They also hurt each other far worse. I was (still am) poor and I became smart because I was always hiding from somebody somewhere reading a book. I would even read a book while waiting in the lunch line so no one would bother me. My childhood, quite frankly, is what books are made of.

ANYWAY. One of the things I remember clearly from school was right after I graduated. We all got senior books to remember school by. By then, I had stopped caring what others thought and I actually got a good amount of friends. My life wasn't so much crap (at least at school). So I thought all that was behind me. But of course, it wasn't. For the "My favorite memory in middle school" section, at least five people wrote that their favorite memory was when I embarrassed myself in the cafeteria by slipping on some food and crying. One person even wrote that my main childhood bully put the food there on purpose so I would slip. That wasn't even true but it showed that people had talked about me in front of my face AND behind my back. They ruined my senior book and any good memories I could have had about school. I've never looked at that book again.

Oh my! Thank y'all so, so much for sharing these stories. Some of these stories almost made me have tears in my eyes. I am so sorry for those of you who went through those things. It is hard to forget and nobody can say "let it go, get over it, everyone has hard times in HS." Nobody can say that because nobody else can know how it felt for you. Plus, unless you've went through it, you can't know how hurtful it was.

I do agree with Brandonn who said that highschool is brutal for everyone. Yes, it usually is, but HS for some, was bad enough to affect them later in life. After reading what some people said it'd be silly to think that for some, things that happen back then can really affect how they feel later on. Some people had a pretty good time in HS, some bully to make themselves feel better and some are the victims.

I truly hate bullying and someone mentioned that when they were bullied the teachers wouldn't do anything and eventually told them to stop coming to them. That's how it was where I went to school, but they had posters all over the school that said "BULLYING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED." Unfortunately, people don't see how bad it really is sometimes.

I had a lot of friends and had a very fun time through some of my school years, but in HS if one person hates you/bullies you, they all do. I had some trouble with it, but not as bad as some. I can say, it can be enough to mess you with your self esteem and make you feel, well, like shit! Lol.

Anyways, thanks yall for sharing!
