First of all, know that you're not alone. There are many, many out there who get bullied every day by a bunch of idiots. I did too. My elementary school was fine, my high school was great as well but it started when I moved from a bigger City, to a smaller town populated by people with little mindsets. These people weren't used to welcoming different race.. so their mockery and laughter started, and literally it was every day. My brother and I were the ONLY desis in this school of 500 French Canadians
In my case, I didn't mind the bullying because I wasn't even interested in socializing with a bunch of people with whom my life can never relate to. People who I will not need in my future. I'm proud that I've been very practical about life since school days.
I was also laughed at for having a french accent when I spoke English
I can never think of a reason for bullying because there isn't suppose to be any.
I can only label it as stupid immaturity. I can never bully irl. I will continue to bully shahrukh fans on india-forums though
I know, when we are young, bullying does affect you deeply. Obviously, you're young, not as strong and you feel bad about the whole situation and why is it happening to you. You feel alone, sometimes I did too but eventually you learn to overcome it all.
Today, when I look back, I'm glad I never let it affect me. I'm glad I never tried to "blend in". I'm glad I never tried to change my ways to be "friends" with them.
Today, professionally I'm way above them. I stayed focused to what I want, who I care about, which people should matter and who shouldn't matter. I think being practical is the key. Once you convince yourself you don't need these people, neither do their opinion should matter to you even ONE BIT, you will be much happier about yourself.
I know where they are today. I know what they are doing. and now that I should be laughing at them, it's not the case because I feel pity.
I don't know how you felt bullied, the reason why you were bullied, (there is never a reason to be bullied btw) Do they used to laugh at you?Were they indian/pakistanias well? Honestly, be proud of who you are, your likes and dislikes, be proud of your body, the way you dress up, everything. We need to stop thinking "I wanna be like them". The world would be too boring if we were all the same. Tell yourself some people don't matter, you will never need them, and you'll feel much better.
& Don't wish ill for them. Just wish good for yourself.
As for THEM, Life will play its cards. You don't need to worry
