if you hurt someones feeling, its bullying. doesnt matter how small it is, the slightest thing could hurt someones feelings, you should always be respectful. and if you dont mean to hurt someone, apologize.
If you feel hurt and it happens often i would call that bullying and talk to the guidance office about it that person may have issue that need to fix that does not involve you.

She was my friend and i knew she was dealing with hard times.

Common symptoms of bullying are harsh words, insults and sometimes, physical harm. There is also a change of attitude.

Bullying is the repetitive verbal/physical aggression someone deals to you. There is also a power difference.

Bullying really depends on what REALLLY offends you or not. If it offends you and the person keeps doing it, it's definitely bullying.

Bullying is an act of aggression towards a person through verbal or physical, even cyber. It is when a person seeks to harm or intimidate another person to assert dominance. If someone bullies a person, it may count if the other person is being abused through verbal, physical, or even cyber. Not to be confused with teasing, some teasing can be easily stopped if the victim asked for them to be stopped, however, bullying may not stop and may become more serious as time passes by. Another to count bullying is through the means of invading someone's privacy without their consent, this can be used to blackmail them so they can manipulate the person's life or even spill out the personal information and be a victim of shame.
