Post your story of the time you got bullied without knowing it until later.
Back in elementary school, I befriended a girl because she was the daughter of one of my dad's good friends. She was often mean, controlling, and just plain toxic, although I didn't know what that meant at the time. Many times she would hurt me and even caused me to have a big breakdown once. After my breakdown, she manipulated me into "remaining" friends with her, though I equally blame myself for falling into her traps again. We were in the same class, so it was almost impossible to ignore her. Luckily, my family and I moved states, and I was able to escape from the toxic friendship. Now I'm extra careful with who I associate myself with. Sorry for the lengthy post.
So my called "Best Friend" told the guy I liked how I felt about him. (lets call him Jason). I didn't find out until he came up to me and asked If I liked him... Well I had bad anxiety as a kid, and ran away crying.
In elementary school, there were girls that wouldn't let me play with them because i didn't do gymnastics. I asked them multiple days if I could sit with them and they never let me.
When I was 6 I cut my hair short, like pixie cut short and I was a girl. There was this group of kids in grade 2/3 who I saw a lot. They would go up to me and be like: "Hey do you want to join are boys only club?" even after i told them i was a girl.
