My story (cut short now)
I was sexually bullied and verbally bullied at school I reported it once or twice but it didn’t work.
One day a girl who was bullying me just took it one step to far, I grabbed her and pushed her against the wall. This was just a reaction out of anger and I didn’t even know what I had done until she slapped me and a teacher was called over. I was asked to apologise which I refused and when I was told that this would be reported I stood my ground and said that she could report it I didn’t care as by apologising I would be backing down and she would think she had won.
This somewhat stopped the bullying however she still bullied me when she was with her friends, just not on her own.
As for the sexual bullying I found this extremely hard to cope with and after a few months of it continuing to happen I eventually spoke out and said it had taken me so long to tell anyone, but I’m not coping well with it. And telling someone about it felt amazing, I felt so much better for getting it out my system. And it must have been dealt with as after that they just left me alone.
I guess what I’m saying is never stand for bullying, try to keep your head held high and don’t let them see that it’s getting you down report it and if you have to report more than once make it clear that this isn’t the first time you have reported it.
You are not being a tattletale, someone is making you miserable and it’s not ok.
