      Unfortunately it is far too common.

    Thank you for this article, you are really brave that you decided to talk about this topic! <3 I was bullied at school when I was the child for the same reason – clever, good in learning and eczema, took me years of depression caused by low esteem to get over it.

      It can take a very long time. And even then, it’s still there. We just get better at dealing with it.

    The folded heart story is just heartwarming. And it’s good to know that as early as six, your son is being informed about the implication of saying hurtful things. It was a delight reading your article.

      Thank you. It does help to know they are learning that the things they do and say can’t be undone.

    No, I think it’s a joke the way they allow bullying in schools!! It’s terrible how these schools have a blame the victim ideology and I just can’t wait for the day when schools are online and students get together in controlled environments for sports and get togethers. It’s wrong students in shoveled together and made to feel bad all day. And these parents and teachers are quick to jump in a pick on the “losers” too. A big bunch of cowards if you ask me, they do nothing and say nothing when it’s important and that’s why there are so many school shootings. Because most of the teachers wouldn’t open their mouths and stand up to anyone, they often just let the kids keep getting picked on. And they’re too afraid to make reports and do anything when a kid is really troubled. The school system is TERRIBLE! I’ve seen it first hand all the kids getting bullied in my school, and the teachers don’t say one word.

      Bullying should never be ignored. I think at some schools they definitely try and sweep it under the rug.

    It’s something that I don’t like to admit, but I was bullied too, for about 2-3 years. Even I didn’t know why I was bullied. Maybe because I was the quite one. Teachers were not helpful in my case too. I am also not a fan of that saying “time heals all wound”, because it really doesn’t. This is a very important issue, something that sticks to us, and the sad truth is that schools doesn’t really do much to prevent/stop bullying.

    Thanks for sharing what you experienced. There are many who have gone through the same, and many more who are currently going through it. Learning to deal with it is very important.

      It’s terrible, isn’t it? It can be hard to admit to as well, because it can be embarrassing and can make you feel like you’ve done something wrong. I never wanted anyone to know. Learning to deal with it is incredibly important. I hope you are in a much better place now.
