bullying is a totally normal part of growing up. if anyones fucking with you its learns you to stand up for yourself. i never got bullied myself, because i was a cocky little shit who enjoyed a slangin match, but i used to stand up for people who got bullied, even though i didnt like them for being weak.
its like the wolf pack males fighting for alpha male status. and it helps prepare you for tough times in your adult life ahead.
whats amazing to me is that a 11 yr old has the mental capabilites to go thru with killing himself, full stop. When i was 11 i dont think i would even know how to do it, let alone go thru with it.
