I am way below grade average. just to let you know
If you're looking for the reason they do this to you, you won't find it. You see, the problem is NOT you. It's THEM! They have the problem. They're the idiots who are doing this stupid stuff.
I used to get teased in school. It hurt really bad. But now I feel sorry for those peole who did that to me. They had a lot of problems. They seemed normal and I thought I was the one who wasn't normal. But the truth is for whatever reason, they had problems-they're homelife wasn't good, they had emotional problems. They were teasing me to get the focus off of themselves and their insecurities about themselves.
My son has ADD and learning disabilities. He was teased HORRIBLY in school. He's now a sophmore in high school and volunteers at our local tv station as a camera man. He found something he LOVES to do and has made friends doing it. He has much more confidence in himself and he LOVES to go to school!
There are two things I think you should do to help yourself.
First, tell someone you trust who these kids are and what they've been doing to you. If you find it too hard to tell someone face to face, write it down and mail it to that person you trust.
Second, find something that interests you (baseball, track, theatrical club-whatever interests you) and join it. Focus on that and your school work. Soon, you won't care so much what others think of you.
You can't control what these bullies say or do. But you can control how you react to it. If you do nothing about it, nothing will change. Tell someone!
Stay strong. Keep your chin up and be proud of yourself. I'm proud of you for posting your concerns. That takes a lot of courage.
Please post back and let us know how you are, ok?
