Denis,

Kick sb around=Tratar mal, tratar de forma injusta, fazer sofrer.

I've been kicked around since I was born.
Eu sou maltratado desde que nasci. / Pisam em mim desde que nasci.

Boa sorte!

You will also use the phrasal kick around when you wish to consider, discuss, or speculate about (a proposal, a project, an idea). Like this:

Over the years we had kicked around various ideas for making money. We did "make money" but the police nabbed us on a counterfeit money charge after they found 20 money-making plates in our secluded backyard.

When you pass time idly or, maybe, wander from place to place aimlessly you can say you just kicked around for a year, perhaps, after college, after moving from place to place from time to time etc.

And when most of John's old, dust-covered books had kicked around in the attic for years, you might reasonably infer that they had remained unused, gone unnoticed, forgotten or seen little use for a long time in a dust-laden attic.
Thank's guys
