im losing confidence in myself. Getting pushed around during school hours and as seeing those people never getting caught. Getting bullied about my size,my weight,and my height is painfull. Teachers see you get bullied yet they dont do nothing to stop them. People like me dont know much but we still get hurt.We get this awful pain inside. I'm a 13 year old girl who is losing confidence in herself but still wants to change the world and make a difference and gain that confidence back to become a better yet stronger person in life.

My little sister cries to the point of making herself sick because she doesn't want to face the kids at school.

I care because most people that are bullied don't deserve it. Bullying goes in a circle. And the circle is just gonna keep going and going, and there will be really no way to stop it completely. BUT everyone should do everything they can to help put a large majority of it to a stop. Even just the smallest things could make the biggest difference.

We are all human. Noone diserves to be bullyed because they are different, and bullying isnt always about the geek being shoved into lockers. It takes place because of jelousy, race etc. We are all different . So if we are all different in some sort of way then we need to learn to except that and except others, for we are the future. We are tomorrows producers, film artists, journalists, doctors, singers, etc. If we support in now what example are we setting for the next generation.

I think one of the worst types of bullying is when it comes from your friends. When they leave you out of things, or comment on something that you are doing, or your appearence in a negative way. they are supposed to be the people that you go to to have fun, when the yare the ones that are hurting you the most, and msot of the time they dont even notice.

I care because there is no reason for bullying. Everyone should be treated equally.

KakashiI, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, writes: “I have been bullied because my love for anime is ‘too extreme.’ People have picked on me for the way I run, the things I like, and the clothes I wear. It is not fair to judge me based on my love for Japanese culture. I care because I feel everyone should be able to enjoy what they love and what they do without the cruel judgments of ‘normies.’”
