If she knows you have suicidal thoughts, and she saying all that, she is being a BITCH and yes its bullying, why don't you say something back? She'll go wrong in life, were as you go right.

Yep, that's bullying; that's verbal bullying. I think you should ask her to stop. But I also think that since you already have these thoughts you should consider telling an adult. What she's doing is wrong.

Hi there,

Yes, this is most certainly bullying in my book. It's very nasty of her to be doing that to you. I know you don't want your mother to speak to the school about it, but it would seem like the best course of action in my opinion. You can't let this go on without doing anything to prevent it.

On another note, I'm sorry you have issues with suicidal thoughts and self-harm also. I would recommend seeking help for those if you haven't already.

I hope things get better soon. Take care.

Thats really mean of your friend, if she is a true friend then she wouldn't say things like that, so maybe try finding some new friends?

Yes, it is bullying. You could either tell someone or ignore it but if you ignore it then nothing is going to change and it doesn't really help anyone, so I would suggest telling someone :hugs:

That is absolutely bullying. I'm sorry you had to go through that. It's never fun. I know you may not want your mom to talk to the school, but it might help. I know you probably don't want to hear that, but you never know. Some schools are better at dealing with bullies then others, so it might help to put a stop to it.

Best of luck <3

As a general rule of thumb, if you're questioning if it's bullying, it probably is.

I really hope you decide to talk to someone about it, and I'm really sorry you had to go through this.. Trust me, I know how it feels. Bullying is the worst. Some 'friends' of mine did the same thing to me back in middle school..

Feel free to pm/vm me if you ever want to talk. <3 But seriously, you should let your mother talk to the school about it.. Sure, it may not do anything.. but it'd be better to take the chance that maybe it'll help, you know?

Good luck. <3

Feel free to PM/VM me if you ever need someone to talk to, or just want someone to listen. I'm also always up for making new friends.
