A Story Submitted by Anonymous with permission
I wanted to share part of my story regarding my experience of bullying.
At primary school I got bullied because I’m partly deaf. I used to have to wear hearing aids and a hat all the time. My bullies would take my hat off my head and knock my hearing aids out, call me names, and once pushed me in the local stream. Only one person ever stood up for me.
I became withdrawn and never spoke to anyone, and to this day I find it hard to make friends. Bullies move on with there lives, but the victims never fully forget the damage that they cause.
