What I discovered about people who has or is being bullied, is that the person bullying you sees potential in you. Telling a authority figure won't lessen the bullying, it would probably just make it worse. "Everyone's talking about you, you wonder what they're saying and why? Why are they bullying me, what did I do?" Your wondering, and can't think up a valid reason. You tried everything and still can't fit in. Everyone is different but those people can hide their differences and be "normal" while you cannot. Maybe your meant to stand out, you have something to offer the world. So to anyone who has or is being bullied you could do anything, work hard. When you finally make it to the top you can tell those haters, How you like me now.
