Ever since I was 8 I was called fat. I was very overweight but I didn't know what to do, and my parents thought I was "fine". When I was 12, turning 13, I was fed up with it. I starved myself and lost nearly all the extra weight. I thought the endless insults would end, but they found out that I had a crush on a girl. They kept on shouting terrible slurs at me in the halls.
This whole thing ended a few months ago, when I start making friends in different years and classes. I'm trying to get over what they said but every time I look in the mirror, all I see is fat and I'm scared to love the girl I love.

I was bullied from 12-17. To the point I didn't feel like going to school anymore. They called me ugly, spotty, goofy teeth geek nerd etc. I was most of these things but. I learnt something, bullies will find something no matter what. You can base your life around what you think. I changed schools and worked on myself, but I made sure I worked on myself for me, not to prove something to them.
I'm now 21, I have a girlfriend I will get married to. I am an engineer working as an investment banker in central London. I met one of my bullies for the first time after 6 years. She always told me I would never get a girlfriend. At first, she didn't recognise me, told her who I was she didn't believe me. Showed my ID she was schocked. Said the girl beside me is my girlfriend, she swallowed hard in shock, as my girlfriend is a solid 9/10 and 10x more beautiful then her. She spoke of admiration and being happy for me when she made my life hell as the most popular girl in school. I was happy I got the last laugh. This happens a lot with my previous bullies.
The thing you Gotta understand is I never did all of these to prove something to my bullies, I worked this hard for myself.
Work on yourself, work out go gym, don't starve yourself but have a healthy diet. Focus on your education. Remember they are enjoying life now. In 10 years they will be just hanging on to life but you will be succesfull.0

Just tell yourself that all the people that have bullied you will be irrelevant 5-10 years. from now. Trust me, I know how you feel; to this day I remember the bullying I went through in school and it still hurts. But I also know that those people are no longer in my life, I've got good things going for me and what goes around comes around. And don't let them scare you from loving who you love either. "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."0
