Hey, bullying reflects a poor character on part of the people who did it to you, not you. You're worthy of friendships and relationships, so don't turn your back on them. Try to meet people firstly through the people you know right now so that it can be easier for you to trust them.
If you want to feel strong internally, you'll have to conquer your fear. You cannot know who's going to turn out to be a good person, but you can hold yourself confidently so that they don't have the guts to insult you for no reason.
