I Was Bullied. by Paul and Anna Albert • September 19, 2012 I know the wounds can be deep; trust me, I've been there. I spent six years of my life terrified to walk into school. I spent six years trying to figure out what to wear, how to act, what to do in order for the bullying to stop. I started hanging out with the 'cool kids,' but it only got worse, so I joined the sport teams and clubs, and that didn't help, so I decided to just give up.
