Exclamation Running from home... - February 1st 2011, 03:44 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of peer pressure or bullying, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'm thinking of running away from home today, its not because I have an abusive family, its because of all the bullies at school, I can't take it anymore
every day its the same thing. I get pushed, hit, talked down to. Whenever I try and tell someone they just don't listen. The only ones who would listen are my parents but I can't tell them, I mean I really CAN'T tell them, when I try to, I can't speak, ill try but words won't come out. So im planning to leave home and im going to kill, yes kill, my bullies. They deserve it. Every last one will die. Im already all packed up all I have to do is walk out the door.Its so tempting to just do it, but I think of my family, the last thing I ever want to see is my parents crying, and what they'll think of me after they read the note I left explaining what I was going to do. Survival won't be much of an issue, I have plenty of food, money, and clothing, it doesn't even get cold here in Tucson. If I do this I don't think I can ever face my parents again.
Why should I stay and get tormented by bullies? In addition to what I already wrote, Im a failure as well, I can't bring myself to try in school, and ill most likely fail high school. So it seems either way my future is shit.

Ramon, i don't think that this is the answer. If you cannnot talk to them about it, then perhaps you should write them a letter and give it to them. No matter how much you'd like to, killing your bullies is not going to help you any. I really think that you need to talk to your parents about this. They can help you, or they can get someone else to help you.

Please, do not run away, and do not kill your bullies. That is a long term fix to a temporary problem.

It will all be okay.

Think about what the end results will be. After you run from home, your parents who care about you will send for the police to come and find you. However, let's assume the bullies do graduate high-school because you don't kill them. Then you still have those same people possibly replaced by others tormenting you. Unless you have a place to go where your parents won't find you, that place may involve yet some more tormenting.

I view it as an exaggeration when you say you're going to kill the bullies but if you have some certainty toward doing this, again, think about the result. You kill them and you will have to face your parents in addition to ruining your life.

Everyone gets tormented by someone at some point in their life. For some it's worse than it is for others. But eventually you've got to settle down and stand up to the bullies not by fighting or killing them. Telling them to stop tormenting you isn't going to work. Instead, play to your advantage: loner in school (I assume), not a physical threat to anyone (I assume), caused no harm and is out-numbered all the time. This becomes an advantage when you tell them how proud they must be to torment someone who doesn't do anything back to them. Verbally attack their inflated self-esteem that came from bullying you ideally where there's an audience of students to watch as the "victim" turns onto the bullies who aren't able to account for themselves. Instead of showing fear, show confidence, smugness, and act as though you are above them, which is what they are doing to you. It throws them off their game because they're not expecting this so the ball is in your court and they must do a good move otherwise keep doing it.


I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

Thank you for your support everyone I decided to stay and face my problems. I don't think I could even bring myself to take another persons life now that I think about it.
