When people call names, it usually means they aren't secure in their own feelings or ways. I'm quite emotional at times also, but I've learned to be more secure with myself by realizing their insecurities are hurting them much more than me..
I have always wondered about that, i know how you feel, i have also been bullied a lot through out my middle school and some part of my high school years. I hated going to school, but i had to unless i wanted to graduate. And it was just scary. I never figured out why people can be so cruel to others and have no respect. If you don't like to be treated they you want to be treated and then don't treat others the same way. I hate bullying it sucks big time. My middle school years was just awful i had no fun at all, and never wanted to go back. But i had too. People where so rude to me.
I just hope the law steps up more near furture about bullying its really starting to really take its tole on people and thier personality.
Control of your emotions can seem tough at times. Just remember that no matter who you are someone will have their issues with you. People that bully are either working out their own issues or they could have problems with communication skills. I have both bullied and been the one being bullied. Try to take nothing others say personally and you will be fine :)
