It's been a while since I posted here.
It's also been a while since I left those people.
I'm happy in middle school now, it's hard and SO stressful, but I'm very happy.
I have a friend group and a very good friend, and even a crush. But of course, I still have enemies.
My enemies consist of mainly girls, but there's a couple boys.
Middle school has changed me a LOT. Not only do I like a bunch of new things and have a partially new personality and experience, but I'm not really depressed anymore. I get over things easily without guidance, and I'm pretty happy.
I still, of course, have my EXTREMELY stressed times, which is basically all the time, but I'm also happy. 50% happy and 50% stressed.
These are just rude people, not full-on bullying that you have to report to teachers. I've actually developed a friendship with one of my teachers, and she's honestly the best and most nicest teacher I've ever had. No one bullies me for it, and the majority of my school are nice, kind people.
Of course, some DO think I'm a bit weird, because I am, but they accept that quirk and are still friendly to me.
I have handled bullies this year.
To stand up to bullies, you must have a friend group. Gather a couple friends, or ask them about it. To actually stand up to the bully or rude person, tell a friend to come over to your desk or something if they're bothering you. If the bully claims that you're the one being mean or rude, ask them to provide reasons.
If they can't provide anything, then YOU provide reasons. This will leave the bully unsure of what to do.
Also, you SHOULD talk to teachers if it's really serious. Don't tell them for anything other than physical activity.
Otherwise, gather a few friends and stand against them. It'll work.
I hope this helped, and yes, middle school is middle school, but it's also my home.
