I Care Because

I was bullied since the Second Grade. Friends who would like me before now thought I was a horrible person when I didn't do anything. No one believed me, and the rare people that did didn't say anything. To this day, even though she bullied me until a few months ago, my best friend never said a word to her. I didn't know what a true friend felt like. She started rumours, she said things to me on facebook, she yelled at me in the hallways. I went to the counselors about this from elementary to high school. Until last year, my administrator suggested to go talk with her parents for the last time, and if things don't change, then he'll would have talk to her personally. After we talked to her parents, she stopped being so obvious about it. We didn't go the administrator, things were ok. I care because I know how much it hurts to be alone, to have people judge you, talk about you, ignore you, and be mean to you from 360 degrees, all around. I care because I want this to change.

when i first moved to a new school i felt scared and insecure because all the other girls had their own little group and i was way to shy to go up to the guys cuz i was scared that they'd make fun of me. I was alone for my first 2 weeks i only went a few days in that 2 weeks though, i couldnt make it through the day ever, but one day a girl came up to me and asked if i wanted to come and hang out with them after school, so i went and hung out with them and now 3 years down the road im friends with my whole class and everybody says im fun to be around all because that one girl felt really guilty about me being alone 24/7! I  wish everyone was like that because this bullying is so mean and it causes a lot of peaople to turn to suicide ! I BELIEVE ... so should you!! us teens can make the world a better place only if you believe in yourself!!!

I care because... I have been in the situation that many others have been in everyday, I have at one time felt that unimportance, left out, hurt, broken, torn, pushed around, dropped feeling. And I can say it breaks my heart when I see all these comments. Theres millions of stories that have never been told, and there have been tons of stories that will never be told because nobody was able to help a child in need at the time. Bulying is in a case as you can say, mostly out of hand. It can be very dangerous, and can be scary! I was at the point 2 years ago of wanting to die, I tried for days and eventually ended up in the hospital becuase I was called 1 of many words that always gets to a girl... FAT! No girl EVER wants to be called that, I cut myself and I starved myself. After a month of not eating I was in the hospital for 2 weeks. Just to recover. I cut for about 6 months. And I leaned toward drug. Meth, pot, coke. It was no fun because up to a year. I can't remember a thing that went on the past year. I drank everyday, got high everyday. And I can say 1 from many. Don't ever lean your own life against alcohol & drugs. But for the past year has been better. I was in rehab & I got clean and now I know. When I am in need. I GET HELP! 
If you victim of bullying PLEASE get help!

I think I am being bullied people who I once called friends are no longer my friends for months now they are always teasing me stealing my things calling me names glaring at me throwing things at me making jokes about me behind my back and purposley trying to get a reaction off me (they even said that they were to my face) I tried telling them I dont like it and they just laughed and said that they wouldnt care if it was them and that sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Well they hurt me I try to stay away from them but they follow me. However I am so greatful for my best friend because she is being bullied by them to so I know I will always have someone there for me who I know cares
