I'll just explain the short version. This girl picks on me, i confronted her about it for ignoring it for so long and then we ended up fighting. Got suspended, came back and thought everything is over with. Obviously that's not the case. She is constantly seeking attention and trying to make me seem like the weaker link. I'm trying hard not to let it get to me again but i feel like my only option now is to go for a round two. Maybe it'll teach her to stfu. Someone please just give me some type of advice or something.

Hmmm, I'm not sure, Why does she pick on you? Usually bullies bully because their insecure and need to get someone else down.

The next time she insults you just laugh with her of just smile. Bullys feed on how people get upset.

I always like to kill em with kindness! Negative people are just not worth your time and energy.

I think either fake them out with kindness or don't pay attention to it! Bullies stop bullying once they see its not doing anything. I was bullied a lot when I was little, and I ignored them and they did go away

Just ignore them. Don't let them see that they're getting to you. They're probably jealous of you and want to weaken you. You just have to stay strong and don't let those idiots get to you.

She's probably jealous as fuck. I've dealt with the same thing girl but when it escalated to fighting she was scared, all bark no bite. Just act confident and just ignore what she says or laugh at her.

Find something to do with your time so it can't get to you, like reading or practicing an instrument, and get closer to your close friends. Make sure you're busy and positive, and when you're an open target at school then you can just laugh and ignore her. Whatever you do, keep yourself occupied and try to find yourself and be at peace with yourself, it will only make them more jealous, but you'll be officially too busy to even notice!

I'm not all for violence but in more cases than not it works. I beat this girl who was constantly bugging me up pretty bad. After that she stopped and so did all her friends. We are actually perfectly fine now and she dated my little brother for a bit.

I had to go through a diversion program to avoid charges but the women running the program said that when the victim lashes out violently it usually stops. She actually wanted me to go speak with her at schools all over the province.

It's not always the answer but if you truly believe it may stop her then its worth a shot. Some people need to be taken down a peg.

This GUY picks on me any my friend because he for some reason hates us. He is a wackjob. He actually posted on facebook a list of people (including me) that he was going to shoot. His was to bring a gun to school and kill us all on 12/21/12. Clearly Im alive. I personally think he is crazy and needs to go to a flipping mental institute. Until he gets expelled what I do is just try to avoid and ignore. If he talk to me and says something mean I just tell him to please mind his own business. He scares me o.0

Ignoring them doesn't always work and I HATE when people say it does. Some of my friends I. Highschool were bullies and they just thought the people who ignored them were afraid of them or complete cowards.

It never stopped them from being mean to them.

I know it sounds cliche but people only bully people because they have no way to feel better about themselves, high school can be hard. Don't let her see that you care, she's looking for a reaction, just don't give her what she wants.

Omg noelle did you call the police?! That's not something to joke about. He should have been expelled for that.

And Melanie that's also not always the case. Sometimes people are just dicks. My old friends thought they were the hottest coolest people around (in sure they still do) and they picked on people to seem more powerful. They sure as hell didn't seem to have ANY insecurities and they all ended up being rather successful and I'm sure they are still bitches.

Some people bully out of insecurities and some do it because they have a giant ego. People with huge egos really do believe they are awesome and generally have pretty high self esteems.

She may want a reaction but I bet she doesn't want to get punched in the throat.

Hi Monica. I am a mother and son is 16. This girl who bullies you obviously is jealous of you for whatever reason. I always tell my son "don't sweat the small stuff". It's not worth it. Trust me oc you act like you don't care and it doesn't bother you, then it will bother her that your not upset by anything she does. People suck sometimes and it's never easy to just ignore bug know that your better than that. Don't let anyone bring you down. Hope that helps. Take care.

Noelle just watch your back and stay away from this person. Tell someone at the school.

But it DOES bug her. So why pretend it doesn't? Standing up for yourself is important. "Don't sweat the small stuff", since when is bullying that is causing serious self esteem issues small stuff? You need to stop the problem not ignore it.

Running away from your problems doesn't help and neither does ignoring them.

I've been bullied and the one and only thing that worked every single time is showing the person that I will not put up with it.

This topic totally strikes a chord with me because I've had friends who were constantly told to ignore bullies and to not stand up for themselves take their own lives. I feel like they'd still be here with me if they had actually done something about it.
