I need help and advice..,

Posted , 6 users are following.

So lately I’ve been really struggling. I’m one of the popular ones, but I’ve suffered with a lot of bullying through out my life. I am 16 years of age. I need some advice and help as to what’s going on before it’s too late. The bullying seems to be getting worse, I’ve self harmed quite a few times before, and on a daily basis I’m called a slag, I’ve been called fat when I’m only 5”3 and I’m 8 stone. Ive been asked if I’m gonna go slit my wrists and cry and told to kill myself numerous times. Whenever I get upset I tend to think abot suicidal thoughts quite often and gay maybe it’s for the best. I need help before I end up doing something that may free me from pain, but will cause many others a whole new world of pain, thankyou x

    Hi how awful for you.  Is this bullying at school or on social media or both?  You  need to enlist the help of your school and your parents and insist they do something.  No one should have to put up with this in this day and age.

    Meanwhile don't do anything silly please.  x

    Hello Skye. I am so sorry to hear that you are having to endure such mean bullying from people like this! Please know that it is not anything lacking in you but these people are mean mean mean! And they don't feel good about themselves so they try to pull you down to make themselves feel better. 

    Do you have a school counselor that you can go to? Do your parents know that this is going on? Please know that you don't deserve this treatment and you need help dealing with these people. Will you think about this and get back to us on this site. We care. We do! Diane

    Know it's really easy for me to say but you need to try to ignore these people, they're most likely jealous as you say you're usually popular. My daughter went through some bullying but was also somewhat popular. Try not to let them get you down and try to realise the truth! Which is they have no heart or morals and you're better than them! They seem to say some nasty things, you need to stick to your friends that you trust and try your best to stay away as much as you can from them! Seems they  have nothing Better to do with their lives and if they're trying to affect yours then they must think you have more going for you and like I say "jealous" prove them right! Do your own thing, try to steer clear, you're obviously more mature than them. Within a year or two they will hopefully mature and probably feel stupid for the way they acted! I Dont know you or your situation properly but in my experience as a teen and my daughter it's easier to try you best to just ignore the little people and keep few close that you trust and try as best you can to get I. With your own life xx

    Hi Skye, I am also 16 and can relate to and understand how you are feeling. I am going to send you a link to my blog, read it. It may help you to feel less alone. I promise you, you will get through this. The bully’s will get bored, but dont let them destroy you. You are so much stronger than you believe.

    I understand self harm and that it isnt a choice, it is an addiction and i understand why sometimes, you feel it is the only option. But let me assure you, it is not the only option. There are other ways to deal with these feelings, for example write down your feelings, it helps to organise things in your mind. You can always message me.

    You will get through this stage of your life, i promise you!

    Please take care of yourself and please dont hesitate to message me if you want to talk things through. 


    This is my blog, please take te time to read it, it will help you understand that you are not alone in your feelings. X
