I Care Because

I've been bullied in 6th grade and now going to 7th and I just want to live a normal life in 7th grade but I cant and I want to change schools...I dont fit in, and people turned their backs on me....I wish someone could understand how it hurts.

I know how it feels to be bullied. Others think it's not bullying since they don't see me show any negative respond to it. I know it is not easy, especially when the your emotions get involve. You start crying when your alone, and you try to hide it to not make a big fuss out of it. But now, I have learned to stand up for myself. There are still times that I get bullied though.

I care because I was bullied a lot when I was younger. I was physically and verbally abused everyday and even when I changed schools because of it, I still was bullied at the new school. When I was twelve, I started cutting because of the past and I still do... but I don't want anyone to have to endure bullying. There is hope. I hope everyone knows that.

Steff, 14, CA

I know how difficult it can be because I've been there. It hurts to be bullied and I wanna stop bullying. I even started an anti bullying club at my school called Be Nice Be You. It has helped so many kids at my school and even me! We are the only school in my district that has an anti bullying club so we are going around the district to other schools to spread the word and educate the public about this issue and also let the victims know they are'not alone. Just remember everyone, Be Nice Be You!!!

I was bullied so bad in 5th that I dropped out and was home school'd. It was fun I could wake up whenever and just get up to go to the bathroom and NOT WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE CALLING ME A lESBIEN!! Im not going to lie I became a "vocal" bully in 7th grade to fit in. It worked. But it wasnt worth it. So I stopped and am way more liked this year than last year. DONT BULLY. You dont need an amazing story to know that. Just dont do it. Im with you Demi:) and Thank you....
