There's no background music playing when you face problems in life. The same goes for Bullying, it doesn't come shouting out loud that you're being bullied. It's a conditioned behavior, and it happens day in and day out when in that environment. And the person who deals with this goes through hell. You start feeling like you're not really good enough. You're made to feel like you don't have what it takes. I know what it feels like because even I've always been treated like a nobody amongst my so called childhood friends, and I didn't like a single day playing with them. Just because my principles, tastes and outlook towards things weren't similar to theirs I was always the one who got sidetracked. I was the one who got left out in certain games. I was the one who was never called to play, it was taken for granted that if I happened to be there I could join if I wanted to, not like they cared if I didn't. They loved laughing at my expense, and being elder to them by 2 or 3 years didn't make much of a difference, that only created a greater rift. I only found solace when I wasn't surrounded by them. I loved it when I escaped from their silly games and came back home, and I loved it even more when I got more busy in life and had no time to play.
No one really tried to make an effort to understand me, but ironically they love making generalisations that I always sit at home. They don't know the other side of me that loves to travel. Well, it's their loss. I didn't stand to lose anything. In fact I realized their true colors early in life and thankfully didn't spend my precious energy on them.
The best happened when I had to move to another place altogether. I slowly regained my confidence, I started feeling good about my self, I also found some really sweet friends in college. Life started changing for the better, and it feels good to be away from those bullies. They never realized an important fact that they didn't become superior by making someone feel inferior. I stopped being in touch with any of them and I realized It's best to just cut off from such people. You don't need someone who doesn't respect you. You deserve to be treated with love, and you also need to love those who stand by you.
