Bully or bullied? When and why? Is it normal or a part of growing up?

So there is bullying and teasing. I was teased as a kid things like, you have a weird last name, haha! I do have a weird last name, it's Polish and difficult to pronounce so the kids liked to wing it and call me weird names. So what, I got over it. No biggie, right? Then you have bullying, constant physical and mental attacks. Literally being cajoled for things you can't control i. e your looks, how smart you are and so on and so forth. I was bullied horribly as a kid and it messed with me tremendously, I had no safe haven. I couldn't even go home to get away from it because it happened there too. So what would you do if you saw someone being bullied and do you think it is socially acceptable and that it is something everyone goes through?
