Bullying: My Story
When I was younger I had this really big problem with this girl with whom I was hanging round.
She used to make me do everything for her. For example, she made me get involved in her arguments and she used to make me be nasty to my friends.
She stated that if I didn't do what she wanted then she would hit me. Eventually I told her that I wasn't going to do it any more. She replied that she was no longer my friend. I let her know that I was fine with this arrangement.
The next day she came over to speak with me. She said that she was sorry for causing trouble between me and my friends and then she went and told all my friends that it was her fault. We were all OK in the end.
So my advice is to stick up for yourself but don't cause trouble. Please comment if you have had a similar problem or need to sort out a problem close to this.
