Stand up for yourself. If you were down, the worst thing you can do is retreat into your shell, to start dipping into things as low as cutting. When people call you names, it is usually because they have had a similar experience. The ones who bully have often been bullied themselves. When people are stereotypical, shrug that off. Know that you are perfect the way you are. If somebody has made you change, that person does not care. The abuse you might be recieving could be a release for them, so you should never do the same to others.
