I would call it I had a cycle, in which first I was bullied - and then I become the bully. After realizing how bad I was, I become an introvert.
The story starts when I came back from the US. Everyone imagined me as being a rich kid, with a lot of money, but that wasn’t the case. I didn’t like to hang out with many people, only with a couple of friends which I liked. People started labeling me - and I was bullied a lot. This was in elementary school.
I was being chased by a horde of classmates trying to beat the out of me. They were stealing my shoes in gym class, they were making fun of me 'cause I wore cheap Chinese brand shoes, that I had just a couple of clothes… and you know the usual stuff people are being bullied for. Things got pretty nasty, as I did something bad because of the pressure I was feeling. Things escalated, a lot of kids went to the principal, the school psychologist, it was a total mess. This was in sixth grade. After that, I started hanging out with the worst possible kids in my area, as they were the only bunch that accepted me as a friend.
With those bad guys, we did a lot of stupid things - which some of them are kinda crime-y.
Fast forward to high school. As I already knew what happens, I started being an thus turning into a bully. There was a kid in my class, that used to have a unibrow and always looked tired. Guess what, I gave him a couple of nicknames such as the zombie, the birdie, Hermes. I was constantly attacking him, making fun of him in front of anyone. Then, I started doing the same things to other kids which were introverted. The teachers didn’t believe that I did something bad as that (because I was an active member of the Peace & Solidarity club of the school). During the summer break, I realized how bad was that, so I become an introvert.
Except those, I always did prank calls, ringing the doorbells and running, stealing fruits from neighbors’ backyards. You know, the usual drill.
